A Success with Plamoya: Makkachin and More

Just to give you a back story. I have a friend who's an avid fan of Yuri!!! On ice. Because I happen to figure skate, he was VERY persistent in seeing me cosplay as someone from the show. I kept resisting. We ended up having a bet where if I lost, I had to cosplay Yuri On Ice. It was a very simple bet: he had to get at least 100 people to vote on a poll “yes” that they wanted to see me cosplay from that series. Miraculously, I lost...he got over 100 votes! To honor his victory, I chose to crossplay as Yuri Katsuki.

Boyang Jin, 2017 Four Continents Championships - Spiderman (soundtrack)

Boyang Jin, who is representing China, is the 2016 World Bronze medalist. While watching the Four Continents Championships, I notice his top. It reminded me of the web design on Spider-Man's outfit. Unbeknownst to me, his short program this season is Spiderman Theme (Junkie XL Remix) performed by Michael Buble. Well, that explains the outfit! While watching his performance, I can see that he's channeling the character through the choreography of Lori Nichol. It includes the iconic web shooting and some poses that reminds me of the character. Also, the piece is jazzy, so there will be some dancing. Enjoy!

Image Comics is pleased to announce that in order to keep up with overwhelming customer demand, the hot new release GOD COUNTRY #1 by Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw has been rushed back to print.

Nerdist raves, “We’ve already told you how amazing God Country #1 is, so this is just a reminder. God Country #1 is William Faulkner meets Jack Kirby. Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw are going to blow your mind. Trust us on this one, guys.”

In GOD COUNTRY, Emmet Quinlan, an old widower rattled by dementia, isn't just a problem for his children—his violent outbursts are more than the local cops can handle. When a tornado levels his home—as well as the surrounding West Texas town—a restored Quinlan rises from the wreckage. The enchanted sword at the eye of the storm gives him more than a sound mind and body, however. He's now the only man who can face the otherworldly creatures the sword has drawn down to the Lone Star State...

GOD COUNTRY #1 remains available for purchase across all digital platforms, including the Image Comics website (, the official Image Comics iOS app, Comixology’s website (, iOS, Android, and Google Play.

GOD COUNTRY #1, 2nd printing (Diamond Code NOV169175) will be available on Wednesday, February 15th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, January 23rd.
