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.

What else could possibly go wrong?


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

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

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 …

An Artist Will Get His Revenge in The Post-WWII Original Graphic Novel SIMON SAYS

Image Comics announces an all-new, original graphic novel Simon Says by Andre R. Frattino and Jesse Lee which will paint a post-World War II Europe in a scarlet shade of revenge this September.


Simon Says is a drama-filled, crime noir story that follows a former artist to the Führer who hunts down and seeks justice upon the Nazis he witnessed murder his friends and loved ones during the war. It is an original graphic novel inspired by true events and by a real-world Holocaust survivor, Simon Wiesenthal, an artist who lost his family and took justice into his own hands.
"Simon Says is about an innocent and gentleman, an artist, whose family and life are destroyed by a real-world event. Not something sci-fi or fanciful, but something that has happened and could happen again. In that way, it's the story of any of us, and how we would respond if who we were and what we had were lost,” said Frattino. "The real-life, famed Nazi hunter, Simon Wiesenthal, was quoted as once sayin…
