FIRST LOOK: Jody Houser and MJ Kim Make Dreams Come True in FAITH: DREAMSIDE #1

Valiant presents your first look within the pages of FAITH: DREAMSIDE #1 (of 4), a brand-new jumping-on point and highly anticipated limited series starring Valiant’s fan-favorite fangirl! On September 26th, writer extraordinaire Jody Houser (Mother Panic, Star Wars: Thrawn) joins forces with rising star artist MJ Kim (FAITH’S WINTER WONDERLAND SPECIAL #1) to continue the adventures of Faith Herbert, the high-flying icon who’s soared her way into incredible stardom!


"Back when I was first talking about this story arc with [former Valiant Editor-in-Chief] Warren [Simons], the lynchpin idea was what it would be like for Faith to have a sidekick. The story evolved a lot after that, but Animalia was part of it from the beginning," writer Jody Houser told SYFY Wire. "Faith's hero career started with her being a part of a team. So seeing her working with heroes like Animalia and Doctor Mirage after operating on her own so much is a great way to examine how she's grown as a person."

Even before Faith Herbert, AKA Zephyr, gained the power of flight, joined the Harbinger Renegades, and soared through the skies of the Valiant Universe, deep down she was always a hero at heart. But what’s a hero to do in the face of a foe that exists only in nightmares? Face them head-on, of course! To protect the dreams of her teammate, Animalia, Faith must venture into a fantastical new realm the likes of which we’ve never seen…and she’ll need some help from the world’s premiere parapsychologist, Doctor Mirage, to make it back with her subconscious mind still intact!

Plus: There’s still time to reserve your order of the FAITH: DREAMSIDE #1-4 PRE-ORDER EDITION BUNDLE before the final order cut-off date of September 3rd, 2018! Released monthly from September 2018 through December 2018, each PRE-ORDER EDITION comes packed with trade paperback-style extras and bonus content, including creator commentary, behind-the-scenes looks at the creation of the comics, process character designs and artwork, and first looks at upcoming issues – plus exclusive covers by Jenny Frison (Revival), David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man), Meghan Hetrick (FAITH), and Stéphane Roux (Zatanna) that can’t be found anywhere else!

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 …

'Black Terror' Back in New Series from Dynamite and Max Bemis

The Nemesis of Crime is back in a new limited series by writer Max Bemis (Moon Knight, Polarity) this October!


In this series, Bob Benton aka the Black Terror, is living in the 1970s and contending with his post-war mental health as well as the rapidly evolving social landscape around him. Say Anything band frontman and acclaimed comics writer Bemis is joined by artists Matt Gaudio (John Wick, Bettie Page) and Ruairí Coleman (Cloak & Dagger, Turok). Rounding out the team on colors and letters are Brittany Pezzillo (Bettie Page, Green Hornet) and Taylor Esposito.

Each issue of the series acts as both the next chapter and a standalone deep dive into the Black Terror's life and the chaotic 1970s setting. Fans can expect to see Black Terror's infamous plain-named sidekick Tim, cult leaders, mobsters, experimental drugs and more. Bemis has described the title as a bit of an Alan Moore take, but less depressing and with some 70s Batman DNA.


Writer Max Bemis said, "I loved w…
