GUNCATS #1: The Western-Inspired Sci-Fi of 'Cowboy Bebop' Meets the Comedic Action of 'Rat Queens'

Meet your new favorite bounty hunters! When a pair of rookie bounty hunters accept a dangerous job in the wildest corner of space, they stumble into a fight they weren’t prepared for—and draw the ire of the baddest criminals in the galaxy.


GUNCATS has beautiful, stylish art, a women-centered story, diverse creators and space puppies! It's a mix of classic pulp sci-fi and old western storytelling with a modern twist.

Creator/writer Samantha Wallschlaeger (the video game writer for Guild Wars 2, Mass Effect: Andromeda, and Star Wars: The Old Republic), comments that "What we want most for our readers is to simply have fun. GUNCATS is silly and adventurous and stylish, and we just want you to dig in and enjoy the ride. And if you can do so while listening to Sleigh Bells’ entire discography, even better."

She continues by saying: "When Joge and I began working on GUNCATS nearly four years ago, we set out to make the kind of comic we desperately wanted to read. I was longing, at the time, for more books centered around the magical phenomenon that is female friendship. Cass and Iola travel to hell and back together—many times as a result of their own flaws—and they always come out on the other side even closer than before. Through all the gunfights and aliens and wall-to-wall action, GUNCATS is, at its core, a story about how a pair of BFFs have the tenacity to take on the world (or in this case, the galaxy)."

The first issue of GUNCATS #1 will be available in a comic book shop near you on August 29, 2018. Pre-order the book with the Diamond item code JUN181315.

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 …

Image/Top Cow announce an all-new, sinister ongoing science-fiction series—INFINITE DARK—by Ryan Cady and Andrea Mutti with colorist K. Michael Russell that will hit stores this October.

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:
