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.

REVIEW: 'Cyber Force' #3 by Bryan Hill, Matt Hawkins, and Atilio Rojo

The story of Aphrodite is the focus of 'Cyber Force' #3. This compelling chapter continues to build the new world of Top Cow's reimagined original title. Corporate greed leads to murder and coercion until one doctor's obsession results in a powerful revelation.


CYBER FORCE #3 
Writer: Matt Hawkins, Bryan Hill Artist: Atilio Rojo Letterer: Troy Peteri Editor: Elena Salcedo Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: May 30, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★1/2 (4.5/5)
Marc Silvestri released 'Cyber Force' twenty-six years ago and this second reboot of the former flagship series rests in the hands of writers Bryan Hill and Matt Hawkins. It was only a matter of time before we'd get the whereabouts of the sentient android Aphrodite. Hill and Hawkins dedicate this issue to her story, and it's probably the best in the series so far. We get very little Carin and Morgan in order to give what is essentially an unnerving scientific horror story. 
Cyber Data is the or…

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 …
