PRE-ORDER - 'Betty and Veronica Friends Forever #1: At The Movies' by Bill Golliher, Dan Parent, and Rich Koslowski

Classic-style Archie stories return to comic shops in May with the launch of BETTY and VERONICA FRIENDS FOREVER! The ongoing series brings the iconic characters back to the traditional comic book format in fun themed stories by Archie legends Bill Golliher and Dan Parent.


"As a fan of Riverdale and the new things going on at Archie, I'm glad to keep the classic style going, too." Dan said. "It's what I love and what feels natural to me, and I'm so glad our fans support it! I also love doing the classic five-page stories; they bring back memories of the stories I grew up on. Here's to many more classic adventures with Betty and Veronica!"

Dan and Bill have a long history with Riverdale going back to their influential 1990s storyline, “Love Showdown” that reintroduced Cheryl Blossom to modern Archie Comics.

Dan added, "It's especially great working with my old partner in crime, Bill Golliher. And Rich Koslowski always knocks it out of the park with his inking. Glenn Whitmore also does a bang-up job, and like Bill, we go all the way back to the Joe Kubert School years (make that decades) ago!"

"Providing classic, all-ages Archie content for the direct market is something that is important to us and that we're confident will resonate with Archie readers -- new and old," said Archie Comics Co-President Alex Segura. "Having these new stories crafted by superstar artist Dan Parent and writer Bill Golliher, along with inker Rich Koslowski, guarantees comic shop readers will be getting the best classic Archie has to offer on a regular basis."

The stories spotlighted in the new series, geared toward comic shops, will also be seen in select B&V digests on the newsstand to maximize the reach of these new classic tales.

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:

Poison Ivy's Rebirth From Child to Sexed-Up Adult on 'Gotham' Covered in New Featurette

The wacky world of Fox's Gotham has long embraced its brand of crazy. "Anything goes," seems to be the motto as the show has tried to fill in the blanks of a pre-Batman Gotham City. Besides making the future Commissioner Gordon an erratic hot-head, his future wife a sociopath, and brought back a villain from the dead, the latest stunt involves aging-up a teen Ivy Pepper magically into an adult to use her powers as a seductress.
Executive producer Ken Woodruff explained this creepy premise to THR: We made the change for two reasons: The character Ivy in the comics, one of her greatest powers is the power of seduction. Everyone was much more comfortable with that with an older actress as opposed to a teenager. We want to explore that classic, canonical power of Ivy. And we didn't just make her older with that attack. When she's changed and transformed, there's a real character change as well. She'll still have some of the same traits, but she'll be much d…

An Artist Will Get His Revenge in The Post-WWII Original Graphic Novel SIMON SAYS

Image Comics announces an all-new, original graphic novel Simon Says by Andre R. Frattino and Jesse Lee which will paint a post-World War II Europe in a scarlet shade of revenge this September.


Simon Says is a drama-filled, crime noir story that follows a former artist to the Führer who hunts down and seeks justice upon the Nazis he witnessed murder his friends and loved ones during the war. It is an original graphic novel inspired by true events and by a real-world Holocaust survivor, Simon Wiesenthal, an artist who lost his family and took justice into his own hands.
"Simon Says is about an innocent and gentleman, an artist, whose family and life are destroyed by a real-world event. Not something sci-fi or fanciful, but something that has happened and could happen again. In that way, it's the story of any of us, and how we would respond if who we were and what we had were lost,” said Frattino. "The real-life, famed Nazi hunter, Simon Wiesenthal, was quoted as once sayin…
