Archie and the Gang Meet Canadian Indie Pop Duo Tegan and Sara in THE ARCHIES #5

Tegan and Sara join CHVRCHES and The Monkees as latest musical acts to guest-star in THE ARCHIES.


After a major meltdown leads to one of their one quitting the band, The Archies will turn to indie pop sirens Tegan and Sara to help them get through a major crisis! Will things get patched up in time for their next show or has The Archies' tour gone kaput?

Tegan and Sara join the ranks of CHVRCHES and The Monkees as the latest acts to appear in the new ongoing THE ARCHIES comic book series by co-writers Alex Segura and Matt Rosenberg, artist Joe Eisma, and colorist Matt Herms.

"I love the mix of acts we've gotten to jam with the Archies, and Tegan and Sara are no exception," said co-writer Alex Segura. "The fun part about writing this series is that the groups coming in get to meet the Archies at different points in their musical journey, and this issue will find the Archies at a major crossroads - one that might change the makeup of the band forever."

“Of the bands we've featured thus far, I've been a fan of Tegan and Sara the longest, and I think their team up with The Archies will make for some exciting comics," said artist Joe Eisma. "I'm looking forward to drawing this super talented and stylish band!”


The fifth issue of THE ARCHIES debuts in comic shops and on digital platforms on February 21st, 2018 and features artwork by Joe Eisma, colorist Matt Herms, and letterer Jack Morelli.

The Archies are making music all across the country and meeting icons along the way. What musical acts will The Archies meet next?

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:

REVIEW: 'Wasted Space' #6 by Michael Moreci, Hayden Sherman, and Jason Wordie

Now officially an ongoing! The whole fam damily is back! Billy visits a crooked politician. Dust and Fury make sweet bot-love in unsanitary locations. A ghost haunts Molly's visions of Rex.
