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."

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 …

An Artist Will Get His Revenge in The Post-WWII Original Graphic Novel SIMON SAYS

Image Comics announces an all-new, original graphic novel Simon Says by Andre R. Frattino and Jesse Lee which will paint a post-World War II Europe in a scarlet shade of revenge this September.


Simon Says is a drama-filled, crime noir story that follows a former artist to the Führer who hunts down and seeks justice upon the Nazis he witnessed murder his friends and loved ones during the war. It is an original graphic novel inspired by true events and by a real-world Holocaust survivor, Simon Wiesenthal, an artist who lost his family and took justice into his own hands.
"Simon Says is about an innocent and gentleman, an artist, whose family and life are destroyed by a real-world event. Not something sci-fi or fanciful, but something that has happened and could happen again. In that way, it's the story of any of us, and how we would respond if who we were and what we had were lost,” said Frattino. "The real-life, famed Nazi hunter, Simon Wiesenthal, was quoted as once sayin…
