'Swords of the Swashbucklers' Returns to Dynamite with Marc Guggenheim and Andrea Mutti

Dynamite Entertainment announced that Bill Mantlo and Butch Guice's iconic Swords of the Swashbucklers will return this April with Swashbucklers: The Saga Continues #1 from writer Marc Guggenheim (X-Men Gold, Spider-Man) and artist Andrea Mutti (Rebels, Pathfinder)! After a successful Kickstarter that restored the original graphic novel to print and paved the way for this new series, Dynamite is thrilled to continue the adventures of the motley crew of the Starshadow-a spacefaring pirate ship captained by the charismatic and fearless Raader.


"There are very few creators who could lead the charge for new Swords of the Swashbucklers stories, and Marc Guggenheim is one of the only writers that the Mantlo family and Butch (Guice) has entrusted with their signature characters," said Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. "Marc has crafted an incredible story to introduce Swords of the Swashbucklers to an entirely new generation, and Andrea Mutti's dynamic, expressive art makes this a can't-miss book!"

"Andrea and I worked together many years ago on Iron Man vs. Whiplash, and we've been conspiring to collaborate again ever since," said Marc Guggenheim. "He was the first name I thought of for this project and has been knocking it out of the park!"

When last we saw the crew of the Starshadow in the pages of Bill Mantlo and Butch Guice's Swords of the Swashbucklers, it seemed that all was lost. Decades later, Raader and her crew return to adventure through the cosmos once again! Continue the epic space adventure and enjoy the return of these legendary space pirates in The Saga Continues!



Swashbucklers: The Saga Continues #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' April 2018 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in April. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve their copies with their local comic book retailers. Swashbucklers: The Saga Continues #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 …

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:
