Nicole Beharie is talented and beautiful. A Julliard-trained performer with intensity and charisma to spare. As Abbie Mills on Fox's popular fantasy drama, Sleepy Hollow, Beharie has formed a potent twosome with co-star Tom Mison's Ichabod Crane. Their wonderful chemistry was the saving grace of a rocky season two. With the start of season 3 only days away, Beharie was able to fit in a sexy but tasteful photo spread for Playboy Magazine while on hiatus.

Smile! Abbie Mills and the Sleepy Hollow Season 3 premiere on October 1st are not too far away.

The Florida-native got her first film role just a year removed from Julliard. A series of heavy dramas followed including Shame with Michael Fassbender (whom she dated for two years). Beharie has constantly challenged herself with every new role, as she told Playboy
“I’m interested in showing every side of being a woman,” says Nicole, who also stars in the 2013 Jackie Robinson biopic 42. “Whether my character is a vixen or strong and sultry, it’s my goal to shake things up.”
It's the role as the smart and tough police lieutenant Mills that has brought her a lot of notoriety for a number of reasons. She's the first black woman to lead a genre show. A show that mixes historical thriller, supernatural horror, and buddy cop action. More than anything Beharie demonstrates strength, confidence and passion in her performance. It also doesn't hurt that she and Mison have great chemistry. 



Their witty banter and his man-out-of-time awkwardness endeared them to fans so much that they've shipped them together and dubbed them "Ichabbie." Overwhelmingly, fans want to see them romantically involved, especially now that Ichabod's witch of a wife met her doom last season. This upcoming season finds them facing new supernatural threats with new love interests that could put a damper on the whole Ichabbie business.

REVIEW: 'Redneck' #2 by Donny Cates, Lisandro Estherren, and Dee Cunniffe

'Redneck' arrived a month ago redefining the vampire genre by not giving into convention or cliché. In fact, if you've read the first two issues, the vampire angle serves more as subtext than its selling point. It's the perfect approach to this character-driven southern fried drama that simmers with tension and intrigue.

REDNECK #2 STORY: DONNY CATES
ART/COVER: LISANDRO ESTHERREN & DEE CUNNIFFE LETTERER: JOE SABINO
RELEASE DATE: MAY 24
32 PAGES | Full Color | Mature | $3.99
★★★★☆ (4/5)
The Bowman's way of life just got upended and what was once a peaceful and secluded existence is on the verge of war. The vampires of Texas keep to themselves, raise their cattle, drink its blood and sell the meat through their BBQ joint. Seems like a brilliant front to keep them in the shadows while staking out a living. All that is threatened when one of their own is killed after a night on the town. This issues fills in the holes to what might have happened and what the hell is…

PREVIEW: 'Tet' #4 by Paul Allor and Paul Tucker

We've seen Eugene's story. But during his last day's in Vietnam, he finally learns how Ha survived the war. She's always been much stronger than him; and much stronger than he's given her credit for. With all their secrets gone, Ha and Eugene must decide how to move forward.

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

REVIEW: 'Farmhand' #1 by Rob Guillory and Taylor Wells

The artist of the offbeat and award-winning Chew with John Layman is back with an equally weird and delightful dark new tale. Rob Guillory meshes a conciliatory father-son relationship with a hybrid biomedical-agri farm. 'Farmhand' is a new quirky horror comic that is just irresistible.


FARMHAND #1
Writer: Rob Guillory Artist: Rob Guillory, Taylor Wells Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: July 11, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★1/2 (4.5/5)
The tone of the debut issue is literally found from cover to cover. Those hands that Jedidiah Jenkins is watering on the cover are not from the living dead trying to break through the soil but actual farm-raised appendages. Jedidiah found a way to grow body parts like he would crops creating an industry to benefit mankind. He even has a high-tech and interactive farm tour describing his great achievement. It's sufficiently creepy but benevolent in the spirit of Chew.  
You would think Jedidiah had it all but in fact, he's been e…

PREVIEW: 'Nancy Drew' #2 by Kelly Thompson, Jenn St-Onge, and Triona Farrell

Nancy’s returned to her hometown of Bayport to sniff out the sender of an ominous letter that may have to do with her mother’s death seven years ago. Re-teaming with her childhood crime-solving team -- Bess, George, and The Hardy Boys -- Nancy is determined to get to the bottom of things.


But she hasn’t even been back in town a day, and someone’s already tried to kill them once. Can they follow the clues in time to stop it from happening again? This modern take on the classic mystery icon continues from KELLY THOMPSON (Hawkeye, Star Wars, Rogue & Gambit) and JENN ST-ONGE (Giant Days, The Misfits)!
