Feast Your Eyes on All the Beautiful Variant Covers for Adam Hughes' Upcoming "Betty & Veronica" Series


When it comes to reinvention and infusing a comic book publishing company with a truly fresh and exciting reboot you can forget the Big Two and look at Archie Comics instead. When they relaunched the iconic "Archie" series they got legendary writer Mark Waid and award-winning artist Fiona Staples. When they restarted "Jughead" they turned to the talented team of Chip Zdarsky and Erica Henderson. Now it's "Betty & Veronica" and it's in the hands of another legend as writer and artist, Adam Hughes.

Archie Comics is making a big push for its July debut with this latest solicitation that includes all of the beautiful variant covers by artists that include Cliff Chiang, Bilquis Evely, Colleen Coover, Tula Lotay, Francesco Francavilla, Robert Hack, Steve Downer, Rebekah Isaacs, Kelly Fitzpatrick, and more.

Check them out below and here's the official release from Archie Comics:

Betty & Veronica. The posh socialite and the girl next door — two of the most iconic characters in pop culture — return in a major way this July with an all-new BETTY & VERONICA #1, courtesy of legendary comic book writer/artist Adam Hughes (Wonder Woman).

The new series follows hot on the heels of two of 2015’s most talked about comic book series: ARCHIE and JUGHEAD. But what happens when Betty and Veronica becomes Betty VS. Veronica?

As Riverdale’s most beloved blonde and brunette find themselves divided over the takeover of the town’s central hangout, Pop’s Chocklit Shoppe, battle lines are drawn and friends have become enemies as the town is enveloped in all-out civil war! Oh, and there will be jokes. Plenty of jokes.

BETTY & VERONICA #1 will hit comic book shops on July 20th featuring variant covers from some of the industry’s hottest talent and rising stars! Pre-order your favorite covers with your local comic book shop!

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 …

Fitness Women in Superhero Body Paint by J.M. Manion

J.M. Manion has long been a successful photographer covering the fitness and bodybuilding industry. He has photographed some of the strongest, well-defined physiques on the planet. He's also had a love of super-heroes and comic books. So much so that Manion began publishing his own comic book, Iron Siren Comics, featuring some of the fitness competitors he's covered as superheroes themselves. It's no wonder he sometimes incorporates superhero cosplay and body paint into photo shoots. Here are just some examples of his work:
