COMING SOON: BRIGANDS: RUIN OF THIEVES #1 - 'Game of Thrones' meets 'Ocean’s Eleven'

The sequel to BRIGANDS, RUIN OF THIEVES is a grimdark Sword and Sorcery story with a heist movie plot as our heroes must survive cross and double cross and their own reputations to come out on top.


"The book will read and look unlike anything else on the shelves. I've established a certain style and sensibility with my work in comics so far, but Sumit's art  and Rosh's colours are international debuts that people will not want to miss. Fans of the genre will love the story and absolutely everyone will want to get on board to see Sumit’s work!

I want readers to remember not only the kind of fantasy/adventure stories that were around when the genre was at its peak, but also relate to the characters who are written with a hint of modernity. It’s an action-packed adventure full of cut-throats and dark bargains. At the end of you’ll be left surprisingly touched by the characters you’ve met along the way.

I grew up on these kinds of stories. Thieves and scoundrels and ne’er-do-wells coming together to overcome impossible odds and show that they’re human beings underneath. And when I read books today, often I find myself seeking out an old school grimdark fantasy book when I want a comforting read. BRIGANDS and RUIN OF THIEVES come from that childhood place spent in the pages of dusty tomes, fantasizing about magic swords and devilish heroes." - Ram V

Writer Rob Williams (SUICIDE SQUAD, UNFOLLOW) calls BRIGANDS, "Sword and sorcery with a refreshingly grounded eye from two of the most promising new creators on the comics scene. Ruin of Thieves carries you along with its confidence."

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.
