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)!

REVIEW: 'Redneck' #2 by Donny Cates, Lisandro Estherren, and Dee Cunniffe

'Redneck' arrived a month ago redefining the vampire genre by not giving into convention or cliché. In fact, if you've read the first two issues, the vampire angle serves more as subtext than its selling point. It's the perfect approach to this character-driven southern fried drama that simmers with tension and intrigue.

★★★★☆ (4/5)
The Bowman's way of life just got upended and what was once a peaceful and secluded existence is on the verge of war. The vampires of Texas keep to themselves, raise their cattle, drink its blood and sell the meat through their BBQ joint. Seems like a brilliant front to keep them in the shadows while staking out a living. All that is threatened when one of their own is killed after a night on the town. This issues fills in the holes to what might have happened and what the hell is…

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 …

REVIEW: 'Death or Glory' #2 by Rick Remender and Bengal

After a raucous debut, 'Death and Glory' takes a weird turn. Like a really weird turn. Imagine David Lynch and Quentin Tarantino had a baby and out came out issue two of this new series from Rick Remender and Bengal. The question is is that a good or bad thing?


DEATH OR GLORY #2  
Writer: Rick Remender Artist: Bengal Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: June 6, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
With a botched heist job, a bullet in her side, and all her money gone, Glory wrestles with what to do next. The cargo her ex-husband was trafficking wasn't drugs but people and after putting them all safely on a bus to Arizona, she's broke and being attended to by one of the Brazilians that stayed behind. Her scheme was pretty straight-forward - rob the money that the dirty sheriff was going to transport and use it for her dad's surgery. Easy peasy. Then it all went to hell as the sheriff recognized her, she dropped the money, and now no one is happy, not the sheri…
