Rob Williams and Sergio Davila Launch New Series with Dynamite's PROJECT SUPERPOWERS

After their biggest launch of the year to date, Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce the release of Project Superpowers #1. Picking up from the special introductory priced #0 issue, the exciting new series kicks into high gear with the fan-favorite creative team of writer Rob Williams (Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn) and artist Sergio Davila (Injustice, Superman) at the helm. As part of the series 10th-anniversary celebration, this first issue features an all-star line-up of cover artists and special retailer incentives.


The Project Superpowers heroes came from the past, now they have to prove their relevance in the modern world. A 21st Century threat is coming for us all. What dread secrets does The Death Defying Devil hold? The Lighthouse will rise and the Spirit of The American Flag will take on a new host. But will it be enough? Can superheroes still save the day? Williams got his start in 2002 as a publisher/creator with Com.X then worked with a variety of publishers including Dynamite, 2000A.D. and Marvel before landing with DC where he started his critically-acclaimed on-going run of Suicide Squad in October 2016 that continues on 38 issues later.

Davila began his professional career with Dynamite on the Lord of the Jungle series in 2012 and has provided work for Red Sonja, Vampirella and other of the publisher’s top series. He has recently started working with DC on Wonder Woman and Superman but jumped at the chance to draw Dynamite’s most powerful heroes.


“For the 10th Anniversary of Project Superpowers, we knew we had to go the extra 10 miles! ;-) We were able to bring in the incredible team of Rob Williams and Sergio Davila, and we’re releasing the #0 at .10 cents for the 10th Anniversary to gain as many fans as possible, to lead in and have the biggest impact possible for #1!” States Dynamite CEO/Publisher Nick Barrucci.  “We couldn’t be more excited to present the new series to fans!  Just check out some of the art to #0 complemented by the incredible covers by some of the best artists in the industry today!”


Project Superpowers #1 has covers by superstar artist Francesco Mattina, John Royle, Philip Tan, Sergio Davila, Ed Benes, Stephen Segovia and J.G. Jones. Plus retailer incentive covers featuring ‘Black & White’ versions of Tan and Royle covers, a ‘Sepia’ version of the Jones cover and ‘Virgin’ versions of Benes and Mattina covers. 


Project Superpowers #1 will be solicited in the June issue of Diamond Previews catalog, the comic industry's premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and scheduled to ship in August of 2018. Readers are encouraged to order through their local comic retailers or 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 …
