MILES MORALES: SPIDER-MAN

As the number of the spider that bit him and the winning lottery number for Brooklyn Visions Academy, the number 42 means a lot in Miles Morales’ world, and series writer Saladin Ahmed will celebrate this landmark issue with an oversized spectacular this September! Joining him will be handful of past and present Miles Morales talent including current series artist Christopher Allen, WHAT IF…? MILES MORALES artist Paco Medina, and fomer Miles Morales artist and current CAPTAIN AMERICA: SENTINEL OF LIBERTY artist Carmen Carnero!

Miles has been through it lately — time for a little R&R now, right? Not when there’s good that needs doing, and when something dark and insidious rears its ugly head on the streets of Brooklyn, Spider-Man is the only hope to end it. But Miles will need help, from his friends, his family and the most unexpected allies, if he dares to even stand a chance this time!

Check out the cover and pick up MILES MORALES: SPIDER-MAN #42 when it swings into shops this September! For more information, visit HERE.

Canadian musician and Juno award-winning artist covers Elle via 360 MAGAZINE

ELLE – CHARLOTTE CARDIN

KO Média is excited to unveil the Summer issue of ELLE Canada featuring Canadian musician Charlotte Cardin. Fresh off the heels of four major wins at the 2022 Juno Awards, including Album of the Year for her debut, Phoenix, the rising pop star opens up about her identity as an artist and how much music has set her free. “Music is the most wholesome way I’ve found of letting go, of drowning out the noise and staying grounded in truth,” she shares in an intimate interview with her big sister and biggest fan. “Whenever I start overthinking what I should wear or how I should be, I go back to my music and focus on the stories I want to tell.” For Cardin, the creative experience of writing her debut album was empowering, allowing her to “access the truest and most vulnerable parts of myself.” Now, with her second album set to be released in 2023, she’s moving to London for the next stage of her career. “It feels right to go where the music speaks to me the most.”

Dive into this summer issue with a roundup of brands offering fun, fashionable swimwear and a look at the new crop of body-care products that are rethinking our face-first approach to skincare. For readers in need of a getaway, discover all that Tunisia has to offer (spoiler: everything from warm hospitality to a cosmopolitan capital), or escape to Merrill House, an ancestral home turned luxurious boutique hotel tucked away in a quiet corner of Picton, Ont.

In fashion, our editors look at the timeless trend of wearing all black — even in summertime — and delve into the history of the white T-shirt, which has deep roots in popular culture. Toronto artist Esmaa Mohamoud, whose exhibits combine sports, fashion and racial issues, reveals the inspiration behind a series of basketball jerseys she transformed into majestic Victorian-style dresses. Plus, we introduce three Canadian curators of vintage jewellery who are giving one-of-a-kind pieces a second life.

Inspirational women abound in this issue. Canadian author Sonya Singh explains what writing her first book taught her about dating and herself; director and producer Lucia Aniello talks about her award-winning show Hacks and championing stories that haven’t been told; multi-hyphenate Jessie Andrews speaks candidly about carving her own path and her recent role in Euphoria; and actor and L’Oréal Paris spokesmodel Andie MacDowell shares her thoughts on going grey and inspiring the next generation. We also chat with Violette Serrat, the new creative director of makeup at Guerlain, about using makeup to celebrate and learn to love ourselves.

This edition is filled with fascinating deep-dives on a wide range of topics. Acclaimed Bangladeshi artist and author Fariha Róisín talks about her latest book exploring how the West’s wellness trends have commodified global healing traditions. Actress and food writer Madhur Jaffrey talks about foodways rooted in tradition and why India’s cuisines are still widely misunderstood. Plus, our writers look at the shift away from binge-watching; the experiences of women affected by alopecia and hair loss; the unrealistic beauty standard of perfectly straight glowing-white teeth; and the ways that Canada’s health-care system forces people who experience chronic illnesses to become their own advocates.

Finally, three tarot readers reveal the secrets of their practice, which include initiating reflection, stimulating introspection and accessing the wants, needs and thoughts that lie dormant within us.

The Summer issue of ELLE Canada will hit stands and Apple News+ on June 20, 2022.

Stranger Things Meets FREAKS

The final two episodes of “Stranger Things 4” premiere on July 1st, with Vecna revealed, Eleven on the verge of getting her powers back, and new gates opening between Hawkins and the Upside Down, Stranger Things is nearing not only the conclusion of its fourth season, but its series end.

Have no fear – Stranger Things fans can read the new series FREAKS by Brett Riley. Critically acclaimed science fiction and horror writer Brett Riley is also back with TRAVELERS [Imbrifex Books, ISBN: 9781945501470], the second installment in his young adult superhero series, due out August 2, 2022. Riley, an American literature professor and award-winning screenwriter, is known for exceptional storytelling, which The Wall Street Journal  sums up as “knowing how to keep the action rolling.” 

In TRAVELERS, the self-dubbed “Freaks” are now high school sophomores and back in class in quiet Quapaw City, Arkansas. They grapple with the ordinary challenges of everyday teen life: cliques, cars, and crushes. While everything appears normal on the surface, looks have rarely been more deceiving. A secret government taskforce—fully aware of the unusual powers the Freaks have acquired—is determined to capture them. Even as the mysterious Baltar Sterne shares ancient wisdom and offers hope, a new menace silently emerges in the woods outside of town. Clever, inexorable, and far more lethal than the Freaks’ first superhuman foe, this traveler from another world possesses powers that can only be described as godlike. The Freaks and their town will be tested in horrific ways they are powerless to predict or even imagine.

Fans of Stranger Things and X-Men will enjoy both FREAKS and TRAVELERS, fast-paced action novels thick with suspense and teenage drama. TRAVELERS  is also a tale of gaining self-awareness, learning the true meaning of friendship, and avoiding the unexpected pitfalls of possessing superpowers.

Alien #1

This August, writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson will continue his bold contributions to the world of ALIEN in an all-new comic series! Featuring the incredible and terrifying artwork of rising star Julius Ohta, “ALIEN #1” will kick off a new saga that will serve as a perfect entrypoint into the legendary horror/science-fiction franchise for newcomers and a must-read for longtime fans. Packed with thrilling revelations and fresh insights into the ALIEN mythos, this new chapter promises to further explore the hard-hitting themes Johnson presented in the title’s first era as a new cast of characters must go deep into Xenomorph territory for a chance to combat human extinction.

A small colony of synths have settled in secret on a backwater moon. When a company of United System soldiers come to them for help retrieving biotechnology on a hostile planet that could be the key to saving humanity, the synths must decide whether the prospect of peace between man and machine is worth the risk of betrayal.

“Writing season one of Marvel’s Alien was a horror fanboy’s dream come true,” Johnson said. “We got to tell exactly the story we wanted to tell, bringing horrific new species of Xenomorph to life while also exploring the themes of family and corporate distrust that are such a crucial part of the films. And as much as I loved our season one, we’re outdoing it in every way in the new series.

“Julius Ohta is exceeding all expectations as series artist. Every background, every facial expression and emotion, and of course, all the environmental creepiness and full-on body horror is lovingly rendered by Julius, who is at the absolute TOP of his game right now. I can’t say enough great things about him. Fans are going to be truly spoiled. Stay tuned for one of the best, most beautiful Alien comics ever made.”

“When I got the invite to draw the new Alien series, I had a professional and standard reaction—I was glad to be invited and I was determined to make it the best work of my life. But then, a few minutes later, it came all at once—I understood that I was going to draw Alien… THE ALIEN. I freaked out (in a very good way) and then I knew the tremendous responsibility that is to be in this franchise,” Ohta added. “Even though there’s a huge responsibility to bring the series to life, I couldn’t expect a better welcome from the creative team. It’s been fantastic to work with Phillip, Sarah [Brunstad] and everyone involved. Phillip is a genius and… a gentleman and is always looking for something to make the story better. When I started reading the script, I couldn’t stop until I reached the last page. I could talk about it forever… Sarah is such a kind editor and it’s been a dream to work with these guys!”The Alien franchise influenced an entire generation and I’m among the people who were hugely influenced by the movies, designs, games and so much more. I hope readers enjoy the series we are bringing to them.”
