GAIL SIMONE AND WALTER GEOVANI MODERNIZE THIS CLASSIC PULP HERO!

The Winslow House is in shambles, but people call it home. It is a place for people who have almost nothing but are trying to make a life for themselves.

But when the ‘Devil tries to step in and protect the innocent, things take a turn for the worse and he finds himself trapped inside the house, being taken care of by the same people he was trying to save.

GAIL SIMONE (Birds of Prey, Wonder Woman) and WALTER GEOVANI (Red Sonja, Clean Room) present the story of The Death-Defying ‘Devil and a group of neighbors who will do what it takes to keep their home, and each other, safe!

Includes issues #1-5 of The Death Defying ‘Devil (2019).

What do you want to learn about? Take your pick in this anthology combining the unprecedented approach of a “how to” book with the diverse subject matter from over 100 contributors sharing their hidden talents via one-page, nine-panel comics!

Includes entries from a variety of comics creatives including John Allison, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Becky Cloonan, Sanford Greene, Paul Pope, Gail Simone, Mark Buckingham, Box Brown, Gilbert Hernandez, Jill Thompson, Chynna Clugston Flores, and more.

Each story is part personal “how to,” part “how-so.” Some of these one-pagers will illuminate aspects of the comic book storytelling process like drawing likenesses, lettering, and cropping art panels. Others go beyond the comics world from the practical (catching a loose dog, changing a tire, speaking in public), to the fun (creating cheap horror makeup, skanking at a ska show, faking a guitar solo), to the peculiar (destroying the Internet, training your doppelgänger, surviving a bear attack–probably).

All-star creators from South Africa, South America, North America, England, India, and other parts of the world share their favorite recipes, traditions, and talents in this fun, educational anthology. Learn new skills or hone the ones you’ve got.

Bonus features include a brand-new story, “How to Wash Your Hands,” an introduction by Kelly Sue DeConnick and an essay about the traditional 9-panel grid by Jim Rugg.

Gail Simone is Auctioning George Perez Wonder Woman Art to Raise Money for Black Lives Matter

Comic creator Gail Simone took to Twitter on Tuesday to recount her experience with Wonder Woman and the creator George Perez. She had the honor of writing Perez’s final to Wonder Woman.

Perez then gifted Simone the final two pages of the story. And as she describes them they have “more value” to her than anything else.

Simone is putting up the “very last page of George Perez’s legendary Wonder Woman work” to help raise money for Black Lives Matter.

But beyond just the page, Gail is including a signed and personalized Wonder Woman Omnibus, two signed and numbered Wonder Woman scripts, the original art signed by George Perez, a sketch by Colleen Doran, and a signed sketch of Diana and Philipus from George Perez himself. Dodeca Donuts is also donating one of their products for free to the winner of Gail’s auction.

The auction ends at 12:00 PDT/7pm GMT on WEdnesday June 3, 2020. It’s currently at $5,000. If you’d like to bid, use #WonderWomanLot.

You can start to read Gail’s full thread below.
