Red Sonja Goes Steampunk Again With Writer Marc Andreyko

Dynamite Entertainment announces that they're bringing back the fantastical world first created by bestselling writer Bill Willingham (Fables) in 2013's Legenderry: A Steampunk Adventure with their upcoming launch of Legenderry: Red Sonja! Helmed by writer Marc Andreyko (Harley Quinn, Love is Love), with art by Igor Lima (Green Lantern Corps), Legenderry: Red Sonja #1 is set to arrive in stores this February!


The last we saw of Red Sonja of the Legenderry world, she was living the pirate's life aboard her ship, The Nautilus. But times have changed. As she tries to rebuild her life once again, she must save the Big City from two houses divided and the star-crossed love bringing them to the brink of war!

Writer Marc Andreyko says, "I couldn't have been more thrilled when the Dynamite folks asked me to do a second turn in the world of Legenderry Red Sonja! Steampunk, pirates, wizards, and one of the most unexpected guest stars of all time make this a second helping that I hope everyone eats up!"


Marc Andreyko, born in 1970 Cleveland, OH, is an American comic book writer best known for his long-term run as writer for DC's Manhunter series beginning in 2004, as well as his work on the Eisner- and Harvey-award winning one-shot, What is it That Disturbs You, Stephen? Throughout his career, Andreyko has been nominated for a number of additional awards, specifically for his limited series Torso and the 1997 mini-series, The Lost. Some of his most recent titles include Batman '66 Meets Wonder Woman '77, and Wolverine vs Deadpool.


"It was both an honor and a pleasure to work with Bill Willingham on his groundbreaking and imaginative world of Steampunk science-fiction in 2013's Legenderry: A Steampunk Adventure," says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher for Dynamite Entertainment. "The series was incredibly successful and spawned several exciting spin-offs featuring some of our most iconic characters, including Red Sonja. The original Legenderry: Red Sonja was a huge success, so we're thrilled to take fans on another adventure in our latest Steampunk She-Devil story, written by Marc Andreyko, whose own career has been ‘legenderry!' He's the perfect fit to lead this series and will do Bill Willingham and his amazing creation proud!"


Award-winning writer Bill Willingham's Legenderry: A Steampunk Adventure debuted on December 31st, 2013, introducing comic book fans to a parallel universe where familiar Dynamite-published characters were reinvented with Victorian aesthetics and steam-powered technology. Legenderry featured a diverse cast including Steve Austin of The Six Million Dollar Man, the classic pulp duo of Green Hornet and Kato, legendary masked adventurer Zorro, horror icon Vampirella, the beloved superheroes Silver Star and Captain Victory (created by Jack Kirby), Flash Gordon and The Phantom from King Features Syndicate, and the swords-and-sorcery icon Red Sonja (2015). The latest Legenderry: Red Sonja will continue to expand on Willingham's universe, and fans of the original will be thrilled to rejoin their favorite character as she continues her "legenderry" adventures!


The debut issue of Legenderry: Red Sonja features incredible cover art from legendary artist Joe Benitez, whose talents graced the cover of 2015's Legenderry: Red Sonja run! Additionally, a limited variant in "Black & White," "Virgin Art," and "Blood Red Line Art" formats are also available as retailer incentives for comic shops that support the launch issue by achieving stocking thresholds.


Legenderry: Red Sonja #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' December 2017 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in February 2018. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of Legenderry: Red Sonja #1 with their local comic book retailers. Legenderry: Red Sonja #1 will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, Madefire, and Dark Horse Digital.

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…

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:
