Tim Gunn Is Getting Some Comic Relief

The New York Times reports that the Project Runway guru will star in the first issue of an upcoming Marvel Comics mini-series, Models Inc., which hits stands on August 26.

In the issue, Gunn will don an Iron Man costume to save a fashion show from being ruined by a bunch of evildoers.

The plot of the series involves the murder of a set designer during Fashion Week. When diva Millicent Collins (aka Millie the Model) is accused of the dirty deed, a bunch of other runway walkers- including Spider-Man's girlfriend, Mary Jane- join forces to clear her name.

Whew; sounds like a real nail-biter!

For his part, Gunn is excited for his super-transformation. "I'm not certain of the particulars of how I'll be portrayed, but I'm really excited about it," Gunn notes. "To say I'm a character in a comic book is wild!"
