REVIEW: 'Wasted Space' #3 by Michael Moreci, Hayden Sherman, and Jason Wordie

Molly Sue takes one last opportunity to convince Billy to fight instead of run. Billy just wants to skip town and escape his past. Legion is on their trail and Dust doesn't have time for pants. It's complicated.


WASTED SPACE #3   

Writer: Michael Moreci
Artist: Hayden Sherman, Jason Wordie
Letterer: Jim Campbell
Publisher: Vault Comics
Release Date: July 11, 2018
Cover Price: $3.99

Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)

Billy's guilt and disenchantment have him determined to get out of town regardless of whatever doom is headed for the world. Being a prophet and convincing the faithful to entrust their future to a candidate that secured their downfall will devastate a man and Billy is beside himself with self-loathing. It doesn't stop Molly Sue, whose faith in Billy seems endless, from trying to change his mind anyway possible. 

With all that said, time is of the essence. Despite Billy's rush to escape the planet,  Legion gets one step closer as he leaves a trail of destruction in his wake. Michael Moreci blends action with great character moments that explores Billy's growth and his discussions with Dust are amusing standouts. It seems Moreci has found his groove with issue three and it's probably the most fluid storytelling so far in the series. Combined with great dialogue and twists, this chapter shows the series is getting better. 

Hayden Sherman's art style is a little quirky with boxy shapes and abstract backgrounds but the layouts and pacing are exceptional. Sherman is as good a storyteller with his pencils as any writer is with words. While the character designs can appear sketchy they are creatively constructed giving this world the proper intergalactic mix of humans and aliens it needs. Jason Wordie's colors are warm but occasionally pop when needed - Dusty's naked blue body (with the strategically placed yellow happy face) and Legion's giant red and black body definitely pop. 

'Wasted Space' makes the pivotal turn in issue three that deepens the character development and thickens the plot. Moreci opens up this sci-fi adventure with some major turning points. The series has found its stride and has become one entertaining ride.

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 …

VIDEO: Happy Father's Day, Walter White!

Just in time for Father's Day, Screen Junkies in association with the online men's magazine, Made Men, are celebrating TV dads and they got R.J.
