PRE-ORDER: Eisner Winner Art Baltazar's POWERS IN ACTION #1 Coming This November

This comic is 25 years in the making and will be awesome!


The year was 1986… when Art Baltazar created his first Super Heroes. Before TINY TITANS. Before ITTY BITTY HELLBOY. Before the AW YEAH COMICS shops. Before the indie hit sensation PATRICK THE WOLF BOY. Even before Artie’s first self-published work THE CRAY BABY ADVENTURES. There was POWERS IN ACTION!

Based on the super hero comics of famous cartoonist Art Baltazar, created in 1986 when he was 17 and in high school, originally called IMAGES OF ART, these classic tales and characters are getting a redesign and story retellings. Updated by Art Baltazar with over 25 years of cartooning experience for a brand-new never before seen audience! WHEW!


Join us on this bold adventure as LYNX brings his sister, OCELOT to join the super team in their first meeting. Let’s hope there are no delays along the way in the form of SUPER VILLAINS! Oh no! Looks like our heroes may have work to do before they even join the team. Will these cat-heroes fit in with the members of the HERO SQUADRON?  Their mysterious leader thinks so.  Who else is on the team, you ask? Meet…SUPLEX! ECLIPSE! The Alien ENORMUS! And their leader MOON! Bold adventure awaits!


But where there are heroes, the villains are not very far. Who is the mysterious DARKSTORM? What’s up with the destructive BOT? And who is that alien trio? And why do they have the same powers as SUPLEX? It begins here!


The first 4-issue story arc of POWERS IN ACTION introduces you to the next dimension of the AW YEAH UNIVERSE! The super-heroic bold adventure of cartoony super hero all age awesomeness that only Art Baltazar can bring!


The first issue of POWERS IN ACTION will be in a comic book store near you on November 28, 2018. Preorder it with the Diamond item code SEP181359.

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 …

KICKSTARTER SPOTLIGHT: 'WHITE' The Sequel to the Acclaimed Graphic Novel BLACK

How does America react when only black people have superpowers? In the sure-to-be-controversial six-part comic book series WHITE, co-creators Kwanza Osajyefo and Tim Smith 3, Inkpot-Award winning artist Jamal Igle, and cover artist Khary Randolph reunite for the sequel to their acclaimed graphic novel and Kickstarter sensation, BLACK.



“How does a nation struggling with a history of racial inequality cope in a world where only black people have superpowers?” said Kwanza Osajyefo. “Our story asks: In a time of supposed inclusion and diversity, how far will those in charge push back to retain the status quo?”

In WHITE, Theodore Mann, whose family exploited empowered blacks for centuries, is now President of the United States. Mann’s administration has exacted controversial measures to deal with the empowered he’s deemed terrorists and is stoking national tensions to win public support for Mann First, a cybernetically-augmented soldier program. The main person standing in the President’s …

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:
