PRE-ORDER: Eisner Winner Art Baltazar's POWERS IN ACTION #1 Coming This November

This comic is 25 years in the making and will be awesome!


The year was 1986… when Art Baltazar created his first Super Heroes. Before TINY TITANS. Before ITTY BITTY HELLBOY. Before the AW YEAH COMICS shops. Before the indie hit sensation PATRICK THE WOLF BOY. Even before Artie’s first self-published work THE CRAY BABY ADVENTURES. There was POWERS IN ACTION!

Based on the super hero comics of famous cartoonist Art Baltazar, created in 1986 when he was 17 and in high school, originally called IMAGES OF ART, these classic tales and characters are getting a redesign and story retellings. Updated by Art Baltazar with over 25 years of cartooning experience for a brand-new never before seen audience! WHEW!


Join us on this bold adventure as LYNX brings his sister, OCELOT to join the super team in their first meeting. Let’s hope there are no delays along the way in the form of SUPER VILLAINS! Oh no! Looks like our heroes may have work to do before they even join the team. Will these cat-heroes fit in with the members of the HERO SQUADRON?  Their mysterious leader thinks so.  Who else is on the team, you ask? Meet…SUPLEX! ECLIPSE! The Alien ENORMUS! And their leader MOON! Bold adventure awaits!


But where there are heroes, the villains are not very far. Who is the mysterious DARKSTORM? What’s up with the destructive BOT? And who is that alien trio? And why do they have the same powers as SUPLEX? It begins here!


The first 4-issue story arc of POWERS IN ACTION introduces you to the next dimension of the AW YEAH UNIVERSE! The super-heroic bold adventure of cartoony super hero all age awesomeness that only Art Baltazar can bring!


The first issue of POWERS IN ACTION will be in a comic book store near you on November 28, 2018. Preorder it with the Diamond item code SEP181359.

DC Comics March Movie Poster Variant Covers are Fantastic

DC Comics may have outdone themselves with their running themed variant covers for the month of March 2015. After some fun and gorgeous variants in 2014 like Darwin Cooke (December), LEGO (November), and Bombshells (June) to name a few DC Comics is continuing to bring some creative covers in 2015. January will feature Flash throughout the company line in celebration of his 75th Anniversary, February will bring everyone’s favorite wild card, Harley Quinn, on DC covers, and perhaps the best mash-ups of comics and famous movie posters will arrive in March.

'Aberrant Season 2' Promises Twisty '80's Inspired Action When the Political Thriller Returns

A new, delightfully twisted story arc of the much-lauded political action thriller is coming to you this February!



Rylend Grant has been busy. The screenwriter – whom has previously penned poppy action fare for folks like Ridley Scott, Justin Lin, John Woo, and F. Gary Gray – spent 2018 writing movies for the likes of J.J. Abrams and Hamilton star Daveed Diggs. He also somehow managed to find the time to put together a deliciously evil five-issue sequel to his critically acclaimed comic book, ABERRANT.

“I don’t sleep much,” says Grant, whom is also raising a gleefully rambunctious two-year-old.

To add fuel to his bone-tired fire, Collider recently announced that ABERRANT is being developed for television by 24 and Felicity executive producer Tony Krantz.

“Tony is one of the smartest people working in Hollywood today,” said Grant, who will write the pilot and produce the series alongside Krantz. “He has shown a uniquely genuine passion and enthusiasm for the book. I honestly couldn’t b…

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 …

PREVIEW: 'The Spirit: The Corpse-Makers' HC by Francesco Francavilla

A series of unexpected disappearances and deaths hit Central City. Initially, these cases seem purely unrelated; no apparent connection between the victims makes it easy for the police to just file them as runaways or natural deaths. But when someone close to Ebony White disappears, The Spirit is on the case!


The iconic masked crimefighter created by legendary comic book creator Will Eisner returns in an all-new tale by Francesco Francavilla... Eisner Award winner, master of crime noir, and worthy successor to The Spirit’s legacy!

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:
