PREORDER: 'Werewolves vs. Dinosaurs' Slashes Its Way into Comic Shops This August!


Claw vs Talon! Fur vs Scales! Supernatural vs Prehistoric! Werewolves vs Dinosaurs brings fans a creature feature with more bite per page than your average horror comic! Introducing the first release from the American Mythology Dark series, the publisher brings fans a clash of monstrous proportions to satisfy even the most hardcore horror fan.  

The creation of comic book artist Chris Scalf (Star Wars) and writer Eric Dobson, Werewolves vs Dinosaurs is an all-out adrenaline-filled fang fest that finds the main character, Cade, in the middle of a supernatural smack down orchestrated by a group of mysterious men in black. Instead of catching a long needed break in the sleepy little town he stumbles into, Cade lands on a runaway train ride full of over-the-top carnage, mayhem, and mystery that rivals the wildest grindhouse films ever made.   


Under partnership with the series’ creator, American Mythology Productions (AM) will launch  Werewolves vs Dinosaurs as a one-shot, in your face, talon biting, 32-page comic book in the May 2016 edition of PREVIEWS from Diamond Comic Distributors, listed under “American Mythology Productions,” on page #279. It carries a $3.99 U.S. cover price.

The book takes the comic publisher in a new direction by adding horror to its expanding catalogue of science fiction, comedy, adventure, and all-ages offerings. The new Dark series will give readers exactly what the title implies, a heavier dose of tales that tingle the spine and provide the backdrop for nightmares with the stunning art provided by Scalf doing both the cover work and interior art.   

Werewolves vs. Dinosaurs is sort of a sequel to a previous story that came about as a joke. My son is a big rail fan and loves going on trips to distant towns to visit rail lines. I myself am a comic/sci-fi fan, I would always wonder out loud if there were in any comic shops in any of these towns… We kidded around about the need for my sci fi/monster interests to coincide with his train hobby in a comic book— something like “Werewolves in a train.” This led me to doing a mock pulp cover for said comic. Eric Dobson, a friend who is also a great writer, saw it, and wanted to write a story around it. We initially were going to publish that one first, but sometime after that I had the thought that we should do a sequel. I had a story idea I brought to Eric and asked if he would want to flesh that one out instead… The rest is history. We had a lot of fun going back and forth on this and developing these characters and storyline ideas. The sequel ended up being more of the origin story and here we are…” said Scalf about the new comic.


Writer and co-creator Eric Dobson said, "When Chris and I first started playing with the idea for Werewolves vs Dinosaurs, we both figured it'd be a fun, goofy idea, but as we waded deeper into the idea, the story and the characters, we both realized we had the chance to put out a really cool book - the kind of thing we both loved as kids. We're hoping we can continue the story, dig into the characters we've created, and of course unleash a bunch more monsters and mythical creatures onto the page."

“When Chris first approached us about doing this series, we just looked at each other and said what a cool concept for a comic. The title alone grabs you and makes you want to see more. When he showed us some of his preliminary concept art for the series, we knew it was a no-brainer that we just had to put this book out. We couldn’t think of a better way to help introduce readers to our new Dark series,” said Michael Bornstein, American Mythology’s publisher. “The book really is a thrill ride for readers from start to finish and delivers on its promise to keep you at the edge of your seat. When you can deliver such a potent combination of concept, art, and story, you can’t help but get excited about a project like this. We’re hoping fans will devour this book as fast as the carnivores that fill its pages as we kick off yet another new chapter to our expanding lineup. Sit back, strap in, and leave the lights on, as we unleash Werewolves vs Dinosaurs this summer!”

We've seen Eugene's story. But during his last day's in Vietnam, he finally learns how Ha survived the war. She's always been much stronger than him; and much stronger than he's given her credit for. With all their secrets gone, Ha and Eugene must decide how to move forward.

REVIEW: 'Slots' #1 by Dan Panosian

Created, written, and drawn by Dan Panosian, 'Slots' #1 is his baby and he has a story to tell at his own damn pace. This beautifully illustrated story is centered squarely on former boxer Stanley Dance and his attempt to find redemption despite being someone without many redeeming qualities.


SLOTS #1 
Writer: Dan Panosian Artist: Dan Panosian Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: October 4, 2017 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
'Slots' is more of a character study than a rip-roaring crime caper but Panosian's protagonist is a charming cad, full of confidence, capable of swindling you out of a restaurant bill with a devilish grin on his face. He's headed back to Vegas to fulfill a favor he owes. He returns to his old haunts where everyone knows him and knows he must be playing some kind of angle. 'Slots' succeeds because Stanley is so magnetic even when he's a jerk he's interesting. So following him around town meeting up with old friends is…

REVIEW: 'Cyber Force' #3 by Bryan Hill, Matt Hawkins, and Atilio Rojo

The story of Aphrodite is the focus of 'Cyber Force' #3. This compelling chapter continues to build the new world of Top Cow's reimagined original title. Corporate greed leads to murder and coercion until one doctor's obsession results in a powerful revelation.


CYBER FORCE #3 
Writer: Matt Hawkins, Bryan Hill Artist: Atilio Rojo Letterer: Troy Peteri Editor: Elena Salcedo Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: May 30, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★1/2 (4.5/5)
Marc Silvestri released 'Cyber Force' twenty-six years ago and this second reboot of the former flagship series rests in the hands of writers Bryan Hill and Matt Hawkins. It was only a matter of time before we'd get the whereabouts of the sentient android Aphrodite. Hill and Hawkins dedicate this issue to her story, and it's probably the best in the series so far. We get very little Carin and Morgan in order to give what is essentially an unnerving scientific horror story. 
Cyber Data is the or…

REVIEW: 'Cyber Force' #2 by Matt Hawkins, Bryan Hill, and Atilio Rojo

As Carin becomes accustomed to her new abilities, Stryker is determined to keep her out of the line of fire. He knows these "gifts" come at a price. Meanwhile, The Accuser recruits a dangerous ally.


CYBER FORCE #2  
Writer: Matt Hawkins, Bryan Hill Artist: Atilio Rojo Letterer: Troy Peteri Edited by Elena Salcedo Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: April 25, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
Matt Hawkins and Bryan Hill set the foundation in issue one with the explosive and destructive arrival of The Accuser. In her wake was the shattered body of Stryker, who along with his paraplegic daughter, get an extraordinary chance to become not only whole again but enhanced. Carin has taken to her powerful working legs with enthusiasm and joy. Stryker not so much because he knows they're being used by C.O.I.It's an uneasy arrangement but origin stories are rarely simple and carefree. Whether one's powers are considered a gift or a curse, there is a price to pay i…

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 …
