PRE-ORDER: 'Winnebago Graveyard' #1 by Steve Niles, Alison Sampson, and Stéphane Paitreau

WINNEBAGO GRAVEYARD—created by Steve Niles and Alison Sampson and first announced at Image Expo—promises to take readers on a spine-tingling road trip this June. Image Comics is pleased to reveal a selection of preview pages from WINNEBAGO GRAVEYARD #1, set to hit stores this June.


In WINNEBAGO GRAVEYARD #1, an American family traveling on vacation finds themselves stranded in a small town with a sinister secret. This horror-adventure story about a family stuck on a road trip gone terribly awry is filled with creepy fairgrounds, nefarious characters, seedy conspiracies, towns full of Satanists, and a teenager. What else could possibly go wrong?


WINNEBAGO GRAVEYARD draws heavily on 1970s horror films, pulling inspiration from America's dark heart wherever possible.


WINNEBAGO GRAVEYARD #1 Cover A by Sampson (Diamond Code APR170723) and Cover B by Mingjue Helen Chen (Diamond Code APR170724) hit stores on Wednesday, June 14th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, May 22nd.

Select praise for WINNEBAGO GRAVEYARD:

"I really loved Winnebago Graveyard. Smart and creepy horror by Steve Niles and eerie art by Alison Sampson. Niles at his horrific best."
—Rick Remender

"Winnebago Graveyard is beautiful and eerie and sinister as Hell. If Ray Bradbury went for grindhouse thrills, I think we'd get a story like this."
—Cullen Bunn

"A creepy, atmospheric start to the book with great, textural art by Alison. This is a book you can really 'feel'... I look forward to reading more."
—Charlie Adlard

"Steve Niles is perhaps my favourite writer working in comics these past 10 years and Alison is the perfect partner-in-crime for him, the heir to Bissette and Totleben with all her beautiful, real-life sketchiness. My favourite book of this year by a mile."
—Mark Millar

"This looks SO fantastic! I’m so excited to have been able to contribute."
—Jen Bartel

"Gloriously creepy & immaculately realised, a truly impressive piece of work."
—Declan Shalvey

"I checked out Winnebago Graveyard... and it was gorgeous creepy awesome. Highly effective stuff. Loved it."
—Joe Harris

"Really really dug the '70s horror movie vibe of Winnebago Graveyard by Steve Niles and Alison Sampson—I am very much hooked! Great series!"
—Fred Van Lente

"Creepily splendid horror."
—Amy Chu

"With Winnebago Graveyard, Alison Sampson and Steve Niles have beautifully summoned the visceral horrors lurking within America, and I am enthralled."
—Joe Keatinge

"Winnebago Graveyard is beautiful, grotesque, and scary a must read for horror fans."
—Riley Rossmo

"Winnebago Graveyard... is scary as Hell. Get on board!"
—Andy Diggle

"Winnebago Graveyard... where Alison Sampson continues to the sort of poetic hyper-realism of her work (I always think of Arthur Ranson, who is a big deal to us British). Steve Niles' story of slowly approaching horror is turned stately, rather. This is measured, and precise, lulling you into its rhythms. I like it." 
—Kieron Gillen

"Steve Niles is at it again, finding a way to take what could be a normal day with the family and turning it into a nightmare on so many levels, featuring hauntingly beautiful artwork by Alison Sampson that sets the tone from page one. Winnebago Graveyard is the start of a wild and twisted ride."
—Jimmy Palmiotti

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.

REDNECK #2 STORY: DONNY CATES

RELEASE DATE: MAY 24

★★★★☆ (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…
