Political Horror-Comedy 'Citizen Jack' Coming This November from Image


As America dives into the terrifying farce of election season, Image Comics is proud to announce CITIZEN JACK, a brand new horror-comedy for everyone who hates politics. Created by blockbuster writer Sam Humphries (Guardians of the Galaxy and X-Men: Black Vortex) and New York Times bestselling artist Tommy Patterson (Game of Thrones), CITIZEN JACK debuts on November 4th, 2015.

Every presidential candidate has a skeleton in the closet—but Jack worships the devil. CITIZEN JACK tells the story of Jack Northworthy, a scandal-plagued small town politician, who should in no way be president. But he has a secret weapon: Marlinspike, a malevolent demon of high ambitions. Together, they're running for president in an outrageous campaign that America will never forget.

Co-creator Humphries first made headlines with his creator-owned debut at Image Comics in 2011. The reprint of the self-released one-shot OUR LOVE IS REAL turned heads around the industry with an edgy premise and an unexpectedly sweet story about one man’s “best friend.” That one-shot launched a career that has him writing some of Marvel Entertainment's biggest stars, including international movie icon The Legendary Star-Lord.

Now, Humphries makes his triumphant return to Image. He and artist Patterson have enlisted an all-star team including editor Jeanine Shaefer, designer Dylan Todd, with colors by John Alderink, and letters by Rachel Deering.

”My fellow Americans, we’ve all had the experience of following politics and having one of two reactions: screaming in terror, or laughing to stop the screaming,” said Humphries. “In that sense, Citizen Jack is the Great American Comic Book.”

Patterson added: "My excitement for Citizen Jack corresponds with my fright of and amusement at our current system. When you peel back the layers of our modern day world you'll find some shadowy figures pulling strings. Once you see it you can't look away."

Cast your vote for CITIZEN JACK’S (Diamond code SEP150499) diabolical extra-sized debut this November, featuring covers by series artist Patterson, and a special variant cover by comics' bad boy supreme, Chip Zdarsky (Diamond code SEP150500), co-creator of the smash-hit SEX CRIMINALS and writer of Archie Comics' upcoming Jugheadseries. Final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, October 12th.

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 …

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:

Now officially an ongoing! The whole fam damily is back! Billy visits a crooked politician. Dust and Fury make sweet bot-love in unsanitary locations. A ghost haunts Molly's visions of Rex.

It's another stellar chapter from Michael Moreci, Hayden Sherman, and Jason Wordie.

The Wonderful Women of Dynamite and Archie Join Forces in 'Red Sonja and Vampirella Meet Betty and Veronica'

Dynamite Entertainment announces the most unexpected and exciting crossover of the year...Red Sonja and Vampirella Meet Betty and Veronica!


Dynamite's first ever crossover with Archie Comics could not be any bigger. The flagship Women of Dynamite come face to face with Riverdale's leading ladies to solve a string of paranormal, unsolved murders. When Drakulon and Hyrkania drop off their famous vampire hunter and sword-wielding barbarian into the small, sleepy town something is surely afoot.


Amy Chu (Red Sonja, KISS: The End, Poison Ivy) returns to the fiery-haired She-Devil to write even more of a fish out of water tale than her fan-favorite Worlds Away arc. Joining her on the art side is Maria Laura Sanapo (DC Comics Bombshells, Charmed) who just drew the Vampirella Valentine's Day Special. Together these two women will chronicle the incomparable charm of their four leading ladies.


Both Dynamite and Archie have had great crossovers with the biggest publishers in the indus…
