Chynna Clugston Flores' 'Scooter Girl' in All-New All-Color Trade Coming in January

Press Release

Chynna Clugston Flores (BLUE MONDAY, IT GIRL & THE ATOMICS) will release her dark comedy classic SCOOTER GIRL, with all-new colors by George Kambadais, in trade paperback this January from Image Comics.

"I'm thrilled about the release of the remastered, color version of SCOOTER GIRL!” said Clugston Flores. “Editor Ian Shaughnessy and I have gone over the book meticulously and are proud to be able to present it in its most polished form to readers in the new year.” 

A love letter to mod and scooter culture, SCOOTER GIRL is the story of Ashton Archer: the Vespa-riding, swanky suit-wearing man-about-town who has it all. That is, until lightning strikes when the girl of his dreams motors right past him on her Lambretta—causing him to lose it all. Convinced that her presence and antagonization has ruined his life, Ashton sets out to end the black curse put upon him by any means necessary.  

“It's a clearer peek into the perils of dating while being a jerk,” added Clugston Flores, “set against a backdrop of a retro 1960s feel in Southern California with its glossy new standard comic book size, complete with an introduction from original editor Jamie S. Rich. I hope new readers and revisiting fans will find its dark comedy as refreshing and fun in technicolor as we do!"

SCOOTER GIRL TP (ISBN: 978-1-63215-942-7) hits comic book stores Wednesday, January 11th and bookstores Tuesday, January 17th, and will be available for $14.99. It can be ordered by retailers with Diamond code OCT160667, and is available for preorder on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, and Indigo.


Select praise for SCOOTER GIRL:

"Whenever it comes to the mod stylings of Chynna Clugston Flores, count me in! Everything she writes and draws pulses with energetic charm and must not be missed." —Michael Allred (Madman, Silver Surfer, iZombie

"Scooter Girl tells a story that is complete and magical unto itself, with characters that grow and change, a structurally pleasing concoction that echoes the best of [Billy] Wilder, with perhaps a dash of Heathers and maybe a little Kill Your Boyfriend." —Jamie S. Rich (THE DOUBLE LIFE OF MIRANDA TURNER, 12 Reasons Why I Love Her)

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 …
