ADVANCE PREVIEW: 'The Wilds' #1 by Vita Ayala, Emily Pearson, and Marissa Louise

From next-big-thing writer Vita Ayala (BITCH PLANET: TRIPLE FEATURE, WONDER WOMAN ANNUAL), your next favorite artist Emily Pearson, rising star colorist Marissa Louise (SPELL ON WHEELS), and indie sensation cover artist Natasha Alterici (HEATHEN) comes an eerie, elegant new take on the apocalypse.


Synopsis:

After a cataclysmic plague sweeps across America, survivors come together to form citystate-like communities for safety.

Daisy Walker is a Runner for The Compound, a mix of post-apocalyptic postal service and black market salvaging operation. It is a Runner's job to ferry items and people between settlements, and on occasion scavenge through the ruins of the old world. Daisy is the best there is at what she does.

Out beyond the settlement walls are innumerable dangers: feral animals, crumbling structures, and Abominations - those that were touched by the plague and became something other. After a decade of surviving, Daisy isn't phased by any of it - until her lover, another Runner named Heather goes missing on a job. Desperate to find her, Daisy begins to see that there may be little difference between the world inside the walls and the horrors beyond.

From writer Vita Ayala (Bitch Planet: Triple Feature, Wonder Woman Annual) and Emily Pearson (Cult Classic) with colors by Marissa Louise (Spell On Wheels) and covers by Natasha Alterici (Heathen), comes this bold tale of surviving in bleak times.


"With a beautiful and horrific twist on the classic zombie at the heart, Ayala and Pearson craft a bold new dystopia that can't be missed."
- JAMES TYNION IV (Detective Comics, The Woods)


"THE WILDS is the kind of book that stays with you long after you read it. The characters, the world, the images, all leave you desperate to read more. It's haunting in the best possible way."
- MATTHEW ROSENBERG (4 Kids Walk Into A Bank, Phoenix Resurrection)


"Mad Max meets Day Of The Dead, with the beautiful impressionistic style of Tarsem Singh... this is THE WILDS. A pitch-perfect callback to the metaphorical heart of apocalypse fiction that began with Night Of The Living Dead, with the action you need waiting beneath the cover."
- STEVE ORLANDO (Supergirl, Justice League of America)

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.
