Taking place three years after volume 1, the Kims are a little bit older but not too much wiser as they continue to crack jokes while they crack skulls, always chasing down the next bounty to pay for their fabulous wardrobes, intergalactic bar crawls, and steady diets of Thing-O-Soup.

The original creative team of writer Magdalene Visaggio, illustrator Eva Cabrera, and colorist Claudia Aguirre have crafted an all-new adventure, channeling the glitter and glory we love from Kim & Kim volume 1 into a smart, heartfelt adventure about young queer love, dysfunctional families, and unbreakable friendship.

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.

PREVIEW: 'Barbarella' #9 by Mike Carey and Kenan Yarar

Barbarella has been lied to. Worse, she’s been weaponized, and someone’s going to answer for that, for sure. (Well, assuming she survives the judgment of the Esseverine sun-giants, and an armada of a thousand ships...)
