The Wonderful Women of Dynamite and Archie Join Forces in 'Red Sonja and Vampirella Meet Betty and Veronica'

Dynamite Entertainment announces the most unexpected and exciting crossover of the year...Red Sonja and Vampirella Meet Betty and Veronica!


Dynamite's first ever crossover with Archie Comics could not be any bigger. The flagship Women of Dynamite come face to face with Riverdale's leading ladies to solve a string of paranormal, unsolved murders. When Drakulon and Hyrkania drop off their famous vampire hunter and sword-wielding barbarian into the small, sleepy town something is surely afoot.


Amy Chu (Red Sonja, KISS: The End, Poison Ivy) returns to the fiery-haired She-Devil to write even more of a fish out of water tale than her fan-favorite Worlds Away arc. Joining her on the art side is Maria Laura Sanapo (DC Comics Bombshells, Charmed) who just drew the Vampirella Valentine's Day Special. Together these two women will chronicle the incomparable charm of their four leading ladies.


Both Dynamite and Archie have had great crossovers with the biggest publishers in the indus…

Khary Randolph and Brandon Thomas Introduce a New World of Magic in Upcoming 'Excellence'

Khary Randolph (We Are Robin, Black, Tech Jacket) and Brandon Thomas (Horizon, The Many Adventures of Miranda Mercury, Noble) ignite a generational war in an all-new, action-fantasy series—Excellence—launching from Image/Skybound Entertainment this May. This new series features a creative team comprised entirely of creators of color.


"Excellence is all about contrasts—characters that are capable of doing these impossible things, but whose abilities are largely defined by others,” said Thomas. “This conflict explodes within a relationship between a father and son that have very different ideas about who should benefit from this power, and how long they're supposed to wait around for things to get ‘better.’ Like most popular genres, fantasy is in desperate need of expansion, and we're excited and honored to fill that void with this action-packed series, as we agree with our protagonist...it's now or never.”
Excellence follows Spencer Dales, a young man born into a world …

Archie and Sabrina Go Public When 'Archie' #705 Drops This May

The top-secret couple of the year are set to finally make their public debut! Starting with May's ARCHIE #705, Archie and Sabrina are taking their relationship public and the series will be retitled ARCHIE AND SABRINA to celebrate the occasion.


Fans of the hit shows Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on Netflix and Riverdale on The CW have been clamoring for a meet-up between the two worlds and it's been secretly happening in the pages of ARCHIE ever since writer Nick Spencer took over with the monumental issue #700. In the new storyline, this historic budding romance will be out in the open for the first time, brought to life by artist Sandy Jarrell, colorist Matt Herms, and letterer Jack Morelli.

"The biggest revelation from Nick's first arc was that Archie and Sabrina were a couple -- which got everyone talking and set up a new, wholly original status quo," said Archie Comics Co-President Alex Segura. "But how'd we get there? What are the repercussions? W…

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. And Legion pets a dog. The galaxy is still totally borked, but maybe together they can un-bork it... oh, probably not.

WASTED SPACE #6
Writer: Michael Moreci Artist: Hayden Sherman, Jason Wordie Letterer: Jim Campbell Publisher: Vault Comics Release Date: February 6, 2019 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★1/2 (4.5/5)
The second arc of Vault Comics' exceptional space opera "Wasted Space" blasts off in satisfying fashion when the gang crosses the galaxy to have a heart-to-heart with a one-percenter while Legion and the Creator contemplate the usefulness or lack thereof of humanity. It's another stellar chapter from Michael Moreci, Hayden Sherman, and Jason Wordie. 
'Wasted Space' has carved out a unique place for itself as more than just a sci-fi comic. It's one of the mo…

PREVIEW: 'Raven The Pirate Princess Book 6: Assault on Golden Rock' by Jeremy Whitley, Xenia Pamfil, and Christine Hipp

Two years ago, Raven Xingtao was locked in a tower and denied her birthright thanks to the scheming of her brothers.  After she was freed, she set out to reclaim what was hers and get her revenge.  It has been a long time coming, but after tonight the job will be halfway done.


On Golden Rock there is a beautiful fortress and at the heart of that fortress is Raven’s brother, Magpie.  Unfortunately, between Raven and Magpie is every sword swinging, tough as nails pirate that sails under Magpie’s flag and Raven has a crew of about a dozen.  The only way to get in the same room and face her brother is in disguise.  Now, if things go south, there’s an army between Raven’s crew and their boat.  And in plans like this, things always go south eventually.

Image Comics Reveals a Special Line of 'Rumble' Variant Covers for Black History Month

Image Comics is pleased to reveal a very special line of Rumble variant covers in time for Black History Month. These covers will kick off the new story arc with Rumble #11 by John Arcudi and David Rubín and will feature artwork by Keith Pollard, Arvell Jones, Ron Wilson, Chris Brunner, and Sanford Greene.


“There’s such a rich history of African Americans working in comics, but it seems to me not enough people know about it. ‘Okay, then maybe Image and I could help out with that a bit,’ was my thinking when I came up with this tribute series of variants,” said Arcudi. “And luckily, Keith Pollard, Arvell Jones, and Ron Wilson were willing to help us out with their tribute variants—homages, in fact, to their own vintage comics covers. We followed their great covers up with two homages to Black comics' pioneers Matt Baker and A.C. Hollingsworth, done by Chris Brunner and Sanford Greene respectively. Altogether, the series came out pretty great as a kind of visual history of African A…

REVIEW: 'Blossoms 666' #1 by Cullen Bunn, Laura Braga, and Matt Herms

BRAND NEW SERIES! Cheryl and Jason Blossom are a pair of seemingly normal kids in Riverdale. They're wealthy, popular and likeable-but they also harbor a deep, dark secret-one of the Blossom Twins is the Anti-Christ. Both want the title, and no one in Riverdale is safe.



BLOSSOMS 666 #1
Writer: Cullen Bunn Artist: Laura Braga, Matt Herms Letterer: Jack Morelli Publisher: Archie Comics Release Date: January 23, 2019 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
It's hard not to see these great Archie Horror titles through the lens of their live-action brethren CW's Riverdale and Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.  The eerie and shocking events of the printed page take on a whole new aesthetic as they're fleshed out on screen with sometimes outlandish and sinister twists. A title like 'Blossom 666' with writer Cullen Bunn, artist Laura Braga, and colorist Matt Herms isn't subtle but who better to introduce the macabre than the privileged and manipulative Blos…

PREVIEW: BLACK [AF]: DEVIL'S DYE #2 by Vita Ayala and Liana Kangas

Indigo, Waters, and X have traced the supply of VANTA to a single source - an old nemesis, SAVAGE, who has re-branded himself a businessman and is running the drug from his nightclub.
