PRE-ORDER: The Makers of 'Holy F*ck' Are Bringing 'Cougar and Cub' to Stores in January



Wealthy heiress Minerva Manx is the courageous Cougar, Megaville's premier crimefighter. Billy Bobtail is Cub, Cougar's loyal partner and a senior at the Sidekick Academy. A slow night on the prowl results in an exchange of passion between our heroes as one of Cougar's rogues watches from the shadows!

The one night stand between Cougar and Cub causes a downward spiral as the supervillains in Megaville leap to exploit the situation. Can Minerva and Billy mend their partnership and fend off the ferocious attacks of their enemies? Or will our champions let a night of indiscretion end their crimefighting careers?

But that's not all! Each issue sends you on a trip through time with our Flashback Backups, revealing secrets of the past through Cougar's exciting adventures from the golden age through the present.

Writer Nick Marino shares his excitement of working on this new title: "I'm so thrilled to share Cougar and Cub with readers. This is one twisted tail (hehe) that I never dreamed would see print like this. Daniel Arruda Massa's art is on a whole other level, channeling incredible influences from animation, underground comix, and classic superhero stories. Rosie Knight's backups are delicious bites of meta fiction, mixing the past with the present in unexpected and exciting ways. I can promise you one thing: you've never read a comic book like this before!"

Danger Zone publisher Jason Martin adds, “We’re excited and delighted to have creators Marino and Arruda Massa back at Action Lab, with another whip-smart and cleverly-skewed take on familiar tropes to follow up their last breakout effort, Holy F*ck (and Holy F*cked)!! As you’ll see, Cougar and Cub takes you to the less charted regions in the land of capes and cowls, and firmly into the Danger Zone!”

Plumb the depths of passion with our Love Is Gross variant, or take a trip to the golden age with our Flashback Backup variant cover!

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:

REVIEW: 'Wasted Space' #6 by Michael Moreci, Hayden Sherman, and Jason Wordie

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. And Legion pets a dog. The galaxy is still totally borked, but maybe together they can un-bork it... oh, probably not.

WASTED SPACE #6
Writer: Michael Moreci Artist: Hayden Sherman, Jason Wordie Letterer: Jim Campbell Publisher: Vault Comics Release Date: February 6, 2019 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★1/2 (4.5/5)
The second arc of Vault Comics' exceptional space opera "Wasted Space" blasts off in satisfying fashion when the gang crosses the galaxy to have a heart-to-heart with a one-percenter while Legion and the Creator contemplate the usefulness or lack thereof of humanity. It's another stellar chapter from Michael Moreci, Hayden Sherman, and Jason Wordie. 
'Wasted Space' has carved out a unique place for itself as more than just a sci-fi comic. It's one of the mo…

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…
