Valiant Entertainment Names Shanyce Lora as Social Media Manager

Valiant Entertainment announces that Shanyce Lora has been named to the position of Social Media Manager. In her new role, Lora will oversee the expansion of Valiant’s social media footprint on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more, and contribute to the company’s further expansion beyond the printed page and into emerging media with short-form live-action and animated content for a digital-first audience.


Lora joined Valiant as Social Media Coordinator in February 2017, with previous experience that included roles at Samsung 837 and AOL/Huffington Post. She holds a B.A. from Brooklyn College.

On the heels of the recently sold-out launch of BLOODSHOT SALVATION #1, Lora’s new role will be instrumental in supporting key promotional initiatives behind two of Valiant’s most anticipated releases of the year: NINJA-K #1, the first issue of a new ongoing series by renowned writer Christos Gage (Netflix’s Daredevil) and astonishing artist Tomás Giorello (X-O MANOWAR) in November; and QUANTUM AND WOODY! (2017) #1, the first issue of a new ongoing series by rising star Daniel Kibblesmith (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert) and eye-popping artist Kano (Immortal Iron Fist) in December. Then, in May 2018, the march toward Valiant’s most impactful and ambitious comic book event to date will begin in HARBINGER WARS 2 #1 by New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (X-O MANOWAR), Academy Award-nominated writer Eric Heisserer (SECRET WEAPONS, Arrival) and blockbuster artists Tomás Giorello (X-O MANOWAR) and Raúl Allén (SECRET WEAPONS).

Lora is just the latest addition to Valiant’s growing stable of marketing and communications staff – a department headed by Vice President of Marketing & Communications Hunter Gorinson that also includes Director of Digital Media & Development Joshua Johns and Marketing & Communications Manager Victoria McNally.

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:

PREVIEW: 'Barbarella' #7 by Mike Carey and Kenan Yarar

Barbarella is lost in a maze of Radically Unstable Space-Time, with Pulver Glain, his boys, and his smarter-than-smart gun Sally-Anne hot on her trail. But what’s at the heart of the maze is a threat - and a miracle - that none of them are ready for.
