DEADPOOL #1 Cover Via MARTIN COCCOLO

DEADPOOL IS BACK

Deadpool’s next era begins this November and he’ll have to be more lethal than ever to handle what’s coming his way! Deadpool’s new ongoing series will be written by Alyssa Wong, known for her acclaimed work on thrilling books like Star Wars: Doctor Aphra and Iron Fist, and drawn by Martin Coccolo, the artist currently wowing readers in the action-packed Hulk vs. Thor: Banner of War crossover. The two rising Marvel stars will take out their pent up aggression on everyone’s pizza-faced, jabber-mouthed, misguided, hate-to-love, love-to-hate fave in new Deadpool adventures loaded with riotous violence and relentless body horror. Deadpool’s latest solo exploits will kick off with a bang as a new mercenary group sends Deadpool on one of his most dangerous missions, an intoxicating villain unleashes a twisted plan on Wade’s body with horrifying side effects, and a hot new romance arrives on the scene to drive Wade crazy!

The world knows Wade Wilson is one of the top mercenary/assassins in the Marvel Universe, even if he is simultaneously the most annoying one…but he’s pushing to make that recognition official as he auditions for the elite group known as the Atelier. Now, he has 48 hours to kill one of the world’s most famous supervillains. Only problem? He’s been kidnapped, and something…strange…is GROWING INSIDE HIM.

“I love chaos. And what is Deadpool if not chaos incarnate? I’m honored to take the reins for Wade’s next solo adventure–expect romance, expect body horror, and expect a wild time!” Wong promises.

“Some time ago I got to do a ten-page story for Deadpool: Black, White & Blood. It was an awesome albeit short experience which left me wanting for more, so when I was asked if I wanted to take the reins of a new Deadpool series I responded with a resounding yes!” Coccolo said. “Then I got to read Alyssa’s script and I loved it! Their script is inventive, dynamic and a lot of fun and working with Alyssa is an absolute joy. They are the best! So I honestly couldn’t be happier with this opportunity and I think, or at least hope, that readers notice how fun this project is for everyone involved and hopefully they hop on the ride with us!”

Discover just how wild Wade Wilson’s life can get when DEADPOOL #1 arrives in November! For more information, visit Marvel.

LALANA EXHIBITION

The LALANA Exhibition is an entirely original and provocative art concept that is currently on display in the Miami Design District, which presents art as people have never seen- or used- before. LALANA is a design initiative that works with modern and contemporary Argentine artists to reimagine their original artworks as functional pieces bred in local techniques and noble materials. The exhibition features three textile pieces based on artworks by Roberto Aizenberg alongside a floor piece and sculptural chair by Luis Fernando Benedit

These resulting pieces have been hand-woven artisanally in silk and wool or built as prototypes from sketches, enabling new ways of engagement with the artworks which can now be used, touched, and inhabited. Designed for those curious at heart, this exhibition sets your inner child free.

Architect, designer, and visual artist, Benedit began his career in the arts in the early sixties. He explored Informalism and Neo-figurative art, and later approached the aesthetics of Pop with bright solid colors and a hint of humor. In the seventies, he explored the connection between art, science, and nature. A recurring subject in Benedit’s work is the historical and cultural identity of Argentina. Parallel to his artistic and architectural career, he designed a vast variety of interiors and every-day items, such as lamps, tables, chairs, and other furniture. Conceived as unique pieces, they frequently feature materials and elements that evoke this local imagery, from a modern and often satirical point of view.

Aizenberg studied architecture for a year before devoting himself to painting. He joined the workshops of Antonio Berni and Juan Batlle Planas, both Surrealist pioneers in the Argentine art scene at the time. Architectural structures and geometrical shapes would soon become a key element in the development of a very personal iconography, rooted in surrealism and metaphysical painting. Throughout a five-decade-long career, he worked in multiple techniques, including oil painting, drawing, collage, etching, sculpture and jewelry design. The objects represented, with sharp edges and muted colors often resemble buildings or towers, with endless rows of tiny empty windows, much like ancient monuments or abandoned cities. They are set in unlikely landscapes, where the earth is a dark and reddish hue, against huge bright skies in gradients of blue, green or yellow, which might evoke those of Aizenberg’s birthplace in Entre Ríos. Often, the central feature of these enigmatic compositions are multi-faceted shapes -resembling fans or umbrellas- suspended in space. In others, it is curvilinear figures recognizable as human. Treading a fine line between figuration and abstraction, these striking images arouse feelings of uncertainty and existential uneasiness. The impossible combination of these elements create dreamlike atmospheres, sometimes peaceful, other times nostalgic, but in all cases unsettling, like an unapproachable symbolic language.

GREG PAK – PLANET HULK: WORLDBREAKER

In 2006, writer Greg Pak along with artists Carlo Pagulayan and Aaron Lopresti crafted PLANET HULK, one of the most iconic stories to ever grace the pages of Incredible Hulk, and this November, Pak will return to this storyline in PLANET HULK: WORLDBREAKER! This five-issue limited series will take place a thousand years into the future and present a shocking expansion and culmination of the mythos of Sakaar. Pak will be joined by visionary Devil’s Reign artist Manuel Garcia.

Considered a modern Marvel masterpiece, PLANET HULK told the rousing story of Hulk’s time on the alien planet Sakaar after being exiled from Earth by the Illuminati. The epic story arc had a defining impact on Hulk that’s still felt today and went on to inspire spinoffs and media adaptations. Now, the saga continues…

A thousand years from now on the planet Sakaar, a young woman with green skin searches for the legendary Green Scar to help save her brother from a group of apocalyptic cultists. But which Hulk will she find? And after all these years, is he truly the Sakaarson, who will save us all — or the Worldbreaker, who will destroy us? 

“Working on Planet Hulk remains one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had in storytelling,” Pak said. “So it was a huge thrill to get the call from editor Mark Paniccia inviting me to dive back in. What makes this story feel so special is that we’re going back to Sakaar a thousand years in the future. That’s opened up doors to do some spectacular worldbuilding with mindblowing art from Manuel Garcia, Cam Smith, and Chris Sotomayor. And we’re exploring big emotional stories that pay off the huge themes of the Hulk and the Green Scar that I’ve built over many years through all my Hulk stories. In a time of change and crisis, what do we do with the power we have, and how do we handle the terrifying repercussions? A thousand years from now, who knows where those questions will take us?”

Check out the cover by original PLANET HULK artist Carlo Pagulayan and return to Sakaar when PLANET HULK: WORLDBREAKER #1 arrives in November. For more information, visit Marvel.com.

Dickies

Dickies x Estevan Oriol

Dickies, a leading workwear brand, debuted its new collection with world-renowned photographer, art director, and filmmaker Estevan Oriol. No better way to showcase this wardrobe than having an event at the famous Pink Motel. This motel can be seen in prominent movies like Drive, GLOW, and many more. The mood was set with vintage automobiles from the mid-1900s and a skate bowl that is open to the public. 

Guests also received a surprise performance by a rap group that goes by the name of 3rd World. As the show commenced, attendees enjoyed tacos, churros, margaritas, and micheladas. 

360 Magazine had the opportunity to sit down with Mr. Oriol and ask him a few questions about the collaboration. He mentioned how he has been working with Dickies for over fifteen years. He also said “Dickies has treated me so well, and never questions my creative direction. They provided me with artistic freedom and didn’t handcuff me to a set of rules.” 

Estevan’s vision was to depict a clear representation of the Lowrider community. Some of the styles included work pants, denim overalls, and a long sleeve t-shirt. The articles of clothing were catered toward classic car lovers and skaters. 

The crowd favorite was the denim overalls with Estevan’s signature on the front, and on the back it said laugh now, cry never. Another remarkable aspect of the garments was the heaviness of the fabric. It ensured the quality of the attire is not short-lived. You can visit dickies.com to learn more about the new apparel.

TAYLOR SWIFT: NEW ALBUM

The artist is working on a new more experimental and romantic album. Taylor Swift is in Nashville recording songs.

She has been involved in controversy after it was reaffirmed that she is one of the most polluting people in the world with her private plane. But beyond the important consumption that the artist of her private jet makes, there are musical novelties that could pleasantly surprise her followers. According to the British outlet The Sun, the singer would be recording new songs for the near future, an album after two years without releasing one.

The Sun has contacted sources close to Taylor and has confirmed that she is in Nashville writing and recording. She plans to release a more experimental and romantic album, far removed from what we are used to hearing with her own heartbroken songs. Because the artist’s love life is doing very well, thanks to her love affair with Joe Alwyn.

This new album could contain a variety of genres and new sounds. Even Taylor Swift is looking forward to collaborating with up-and-coming producers and singers in the music industry.

It would be the first completely new album we could hear from Taylor Swift in two years. In 2020, she wowed us with two unbelievably great albums in Evermore and Folklore.

In this time, she has also amazed us with the re-recordings of some of her previous musical works, such as Red (Taylor’s Version) and Fearless (Taylor’s Version), thus becoming the owner of the rights to her own songs.
