REVIEW: 'Motor Crush' #10 by Brenden Fletcher, Cameron Stewart, and Babs Tarr

While Dom tries to locate her dad, chaos ensues when underground racers try to take over the streets again attacking the WGP and hijacking Crush.


MOTOR CRUSH #10 

Writer: Brenden Fletcher, Cameron Stewart, Babs Tarr
Artist: Babs Tarr
Publisher: Image Comics
Release Date: February 28, 2018
Cover Price: $3.99

Score: ★★★☆☆ (3/5)

Brenden Fletcher and Cameron Stewart have put Dom through so much that she's overdue for a win. It doesn't come easy as she searches for her dad but has to put up with Decimus Wexler and his dickish attitude. It's his fault, after all, it was his dosage of Crush that Dom took that caused the time jump turning Dom's life upside down. Now he's training the smitten Ya-Ya while withholding Dom's true origin for leverage. If that wasn't bad enough, the Royal Bastard Squad has their sights set on taking the Crush stash from Denim Fang. 

In the two years that Dom jumped a lot changed, most notably Crush was taken off the streets leaving racer gangs idling. Now, they're looking to make a comeback and the RBS is leading the charge to rule the streets again. It's an interesting development that raises the stakes in 'Motor Crush' that broadens the danger for not just Dom but everybody else including the WGP circuit. 

As usual, Babs Tarr does stellar work on art from beginning to end. This issue, in particular, had her talents on full display, from chaotic action to small moments of emotion to tense confrontations, Tarr nails the pace, tone, and beats. Her colorful animated style gives 'Motor Crush' its personality. 

'Motor Crush' delivers an action-packed chapter that offers Dom some hope, for a change. Old enemies, new enemies and one pain in the ass throw new obstacles in her way but finds a way to persevere. The series seems to be back on the upswing after putting Dom through hell. It's still a fun book that looks even better.

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:

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 …

Eliza Dushku Stars in Sci-Fi Short 'The Gable 5'

Kevin Tancharoen, the filmmaker that created the popular webseries, Mortal Kombat: Legacy, has returned to Machinima with his latest short film entitled The Gable 5 starring one of Joss Whedon's favorite action heroines, Eliza Dushku. The ties to the Whedon-verse are well intact as Tancharoen's brother-in-law is Jed Whedon, who co-produces along with wife Maurissa, the super spy drama Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.LD. on ABC. Dushku once again shows off her killer moves in this dark and action-packed sci-fi short film.

TV REVIEW: Jonathan Frakes Directs as Charlize Theron Visits ‘The Orville’

The Orville crew comes to the aid of a stranded mining vessel stuck in the orbit of a star. They save the captain of the ship, Pria (guest star Charlize Theron), and soon Ed Mercer (Seth McFarlane) is making "googly-eyes" at her to the chagrin of a very suspicious first officer Kelly Grayson (Adrianne Palicki).


 It's only right that a show that borrows so much from Star Trek would have Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Jonathan Frakes direct this episode. He does a stellar job as the episode named "Pria" takes the audience to new areas of the ship, an impressive FX-heavy dark matter field, and an amusing subplot involving Helmsman Gordon Malloy (Scott Grimes) teaching Issac (Mark Jackson) the how practical jokes work. The mysterious stranger turned love interest with ulterior motives proving a suspicious (and possibly jealous) ex correct makes this story predictable but it's still massively fun with Oscar-winner Theron shaking things up on board.
