Rising Star Veronica Fish Joins Mark Waid As New Regular Series Artist on ARCHIE!

ARCHIE Promotional Art by Veronica Fish
(Press Release)

The future of Riverdale gets even brighter in 2016 as rising star Veronica Fish (Howard the Duck) cements her place in Archie Comics history as the new ongoing artist for the critically acclaimed ARCHIE series! Joining series writer Mark Waid, colorists Andre Szymanowicz and Jen Vaughn, and letterer Jack Morelli, Veronica will continue building on the artistic groundwork of the New Riverdale established by Fiona Staples and Annie Wu while providing her own dynamic take on Archie and the gang.

"I'm very excited. It's a dream job!" said Fish. "And like all dream jobs comes responsibilities. Even though I do feel quite a bit of pressure I'm trying to focus on how much fun it is."

Readers got a first look at Veronica's ultra-expressive and playful art style in the pages of January's ARCHIE #5 featuring a doomed team-up between Betty, Jughead, and Archie's arch-rival Reggie Mantle, who will continue to play a major role in upcoming issues.

"I really enjoy drawing Reggie because his presence shakes everybody up," said Fish. "He makes good characters like Betty and Archie do things they wouldn't otherwise.  He is also super layered, and not just a one-dimensional villain."

With Reggie out for vengeance and his relationship with Veronica getting more serious, Archie faces a major obstacle in ARCHIE #6, on sale in comic shops and digitally on 2/17!

REVIEW: 'Cyber Force' #3 by Bryan Hill, Matt Hawkins, and Atilio Rojo

The story of Aphrodite is the focus of 'Cyber Force' #3. This compelling chapter continues to build the new world of Top Cow's reimagined original title. Corporate greed leads to murder and coercion until one doctor's obsession results in a powerful revelation.


CYBER FORCE #3 
Writer: Matt Hawkins, Bryan Hill Artist: Atilio Rojo Letterer: Troy Peteri Editor: Elena Salcedo Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: May 30, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★1/2 (4.5/5)
Marc Silvestri released 'Cyber Force' twenty-six years ago and this second reboot of the former flagship series rests in the hands of writers Bryan Hill and Matt Hawkins. It was only a matter of time before we'd get the whereabouts of the sentient android Aphrodite. Hill and Hawkins dedicate this issue to her story, and it's probably the best in the series so far. We get very little Carin and Morgan in order to give what is essentially an unnerving scientific horror story.

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 …
