The MARVELous Tim Gunn

While I personally don’t watch the show, I understand that Tim Gunn hosts Project Runway (formerly on Bravo, and now on Lifetime). Well, I was watching The Daily Show today (from last night), and I learned that Gunn, will appear in an up-coming Marvel comic!

Fun! Marvel comics is releasing a fashion comic named Models Inc. on Aug. 26 starring Tim Gunn. Similar to his role on Project Runway, Tim will act as the "wise one," helping to solve the crime of a young set designer murdered during New York Fashion Week — all while wearing an Iron Man suit! So far, we know Models Inc. will feature three ladies: Millicent Collins (Millie the Model), Patsy Walker (Hellcat), and Spiderman's Mary Jane. Sounds like a fashion paper version of Charlie's Angels.

By all reports, Gunn will join forces with the Invincible Iron Man this month (August) in a backup story in the pages of the comic, Models, INC. #1.

Here’s the story description from the press release: “The New York Museum of Fashion is hosting an exhibit of Iron Man’s armor—the best suits in the Marvel Universe. When a villainous threat crashes the event, it’s up to Iron Man to save the day, but he will need help from the man best-suited for the job: Tim Gunn.”

Seriously, how wicked-awesome is that?

I just learned that the comic was delayed until September.
