TRAILER: Get The Trade Paperback of Image's NO. 1 WITH A BULLET Next Week

The trade paperback of the critically acclaimed, Eisner Nominated Image Comics series, NO. 1 WITH A BULLET from writer Jacob Semahn (GONERS, Marvel’s Spider-Man) and artist Jorge Corona (GONERS, Feathers, Big Trouble in China: Old Man Jack) will launch on June 6th.


Her social media: strong. Her variety show segments: a hit. Nash Huang is at the top of her game. But when the iRis Shutter contact lens hits the market, Nash's personal life is invaded. The latest leap forward in 'technological progress,' these contacts not only play video or augment reality... they also record footage. Fighting to keep her life together after a sex tape goes viral, a clingy superfan is the last thing on Nash's mind. But then the bodies start to pile up... and the terror begins.

The trade paperback collects issues #1-6 of the lauded series, together for the first time. Part invasion horror, part grounded sci-fi, NO. 1 WITH A BULLET paints a very real picture of our world on a personal level that is “A sublime piece of futurism that is both entertaining in its absurdity and terrifying in its predictions.” — Clive Barker (Hellraiser, Candyman)


Vita Ayala (Submerged, The Wilds) calls it, “A masterful blend of message and sensation.” While Donny Cates (Venom, God Country, Redneck) adds, “Not just good, but important. A haunting shot across the bow of the worst the internet has to offer. A stunning and electric debut.”

"'No. 1 With A Bullet' found a way to tackle tough subjects like sexual exploitation and cyberstalking and craft a suspenseful thought-provoking crime thriller out of it. Semahn, Corona, and Hickman have shed light on all-too-common real-life horrors through the lens of comics creating a powerful story that's timely and emotionally charged."- Enrique Rea (Spartantown.net)

NO. 1 WITH A BULLET takes a critical and highly relevant look at today’s social media status quo. A world where technology has integrated itself so completely into everyday life that nothing is safe from online scrutiny and, by effect, the dark depths that our digital lives can bring.

NO. 1 WITH A BULLET from Image Comics is available in stores and digital platforms on June 6th.

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.
