Matt Kindt and Juan José Ryp Unleash a New Arc in X-O MANOWAR #19

 Valiant Entertainment is proud to announce an explosive new story arc for the publisher’s critically acclaimed X-O MANOWAR series: “AGENT,” starting with X-O MANOWAR (2017) #19! Beginning on September 26th, Eisner-nominated writer Matt Kindt (ETERNITY) and incendiary artist Juan José Ryp (BRITANNIA) install Aric of Dacia as an operative of the Global Agency for Threat Excision to face off against a fantastic new world of gods, myths, and heroes!


Featuring the return of characters from ETERNITY, the seminal experiment in cosmic storytelling, X-O MANOWAR #19 will bring two of Valiant’s most beloved science fiction epics together for the ultimate meeting of space-faring warriors!

“After the events in ETERNITY, Divinity came back to Earth and everything reset to a degree,” writer Matt Kindt told Comics Bulletin. “Except Divinity brought some problems back with him...or, more accurately, some problems followed Divinity back home to Earth. We kind of teased this a little bit at the end of ETERNITY but how it manifests itself is going to be pretty nuts. We’re bringing the cosmic to Earth!”

Beyond time, space, and reality, there lies the Unknown…and now it’s coming here! When soldiers from a mysterious foreign realm arrive on Earth, it’s up to the armored Visigoth known as X-O Manowar – newly returned to the planet and now the leader of his own elite G.A.T.E. unit – to deal with the intrusion. But are these otherworldly emissaries truly the threat they appear to be, or does a larger danger loom over the Valiant Universe still?


On September 26th, worlds collide as New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY, Grass Kings) and dazzling artist Juan José Ryp (NINJA-K) bring a new plane of existence crashing down upon our own in a brand-new jumping-on point for 2017’s best-selling series – featuring covers by Kenneth Rocafort (The Ultimates), Alan Quah (Orphan Black), Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT SALVATION), and Renato Guedes (Wolverine)!

Fitness Women in Superhero Body Paint by J.M. Manion

J.M. Manion has long been a successful photographer covering the fitness and bodybuilding industry. He has photographed some of the strongest, well-defined physiques on the planet. He's also had a love of super-heroes and comic books. So much so that Manion began publishing his own comic book, Iron Siren Comics, featuring some of the fitness competitors he's covered as superheroes themselves. It's no wonder he sometimes incorporates superhero cosplay and body paint into photo shoots. Here are just some examples of his work:

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

Eliza Dushku Stars in Sci-Fi Short 'The Gable 5'

Kevin Tancharoen, the filmmaker that created the popular webseries, Mortal Kombat: Legacy, has returned to Machinima with his latest short film entitled The Gable 5 starring one of Joss Whedon's favorite action heroines, Eliza Dushku. The ties to the Whedon-verse are well intact as Tancharoen's brother-in-law is Jed Whedon, who co-produces along with wife Maurissa, the super spy drama Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.LD. on ABC. Dushku once again shows off her killer moves in this dark and action-packed sci-fi short film.

PREVIEW: 'PUNK MAMBO' #4 (of 5) by CULLEN BUNN, ADAM GORHAM and JOSÉ VILLARRUBIA

Punk Mambo faces off against a sinister sorcerer!


What does Azaire want with the loa he’s collected?
Mambo reaches deep into her bag of tricks to level the playing field. Sex magic may or may not be involved. But voodoo dolls definitely are.

VIDEO: Happy Father's Day, Walter White!

Just in time for Father's Day, Screen Junkies in association with the online men's magazine, Made Men, are celebrating TV dads and they got R.J. Mitte who played Walt Jr. to Bryan Cranston's Walter White, the school teacher turned meth kingpin on AMC's Breaking Bad, to reminisce about what made Big Walt a great dad. Maybe he wasn't so bad after all.
