Just announced at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2015, Archie Comics released major details about the upcoming "Riverdale" live-action series.
Originally developed for FOX, “Riverdale”—a dark, twisty, one-hour drama based on the iconic “Archie” comic book characters, including Archie, Betty, and Veronica, as well as Josie and the Pussycats—is now set-up at The CW network, with the key players remaining the same: Warner Brothers is the studio, THE FLASH and ARROW chief Greg Berlanti is producing and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Archie's Chief Creative Officer, is writing the pilot.
"The CW is a perfect for for the vibe and tone of the Riverdale series," said Archie Comics CEO/Publisher, Jon Goldwater. "We couldn't be in better hands. Working with WB, Greg Berlanti and having Roberto involved has made this a dream project come to life. This is a major, major thing for this company."
As fans know, Aguirre-Sacasa is also the mastermind behind Archie's two bestselling and acclaimed horror titles, AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE and CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA. He is also a consulting producer on the “Supergirl” series.
The "Riverdale" news comes hot on the heels of the hugely successful sellout Archie relaunch, kicked off by a stellar debut issue from the powerhouse creative team of writer Mark Waid and artist Fiona Staples, which has been the buzz of this year's Comic-Con.
DC Comics may have outdone themselves with their running themed variant covers for the month of March 2015. After some fun and gorgeous variants in 2014 like Darwin Cooke (December), LEGO (November), and Bombshells (June) to name a few DC Comics is continuing to bring some creative covers in 2015. January will feature Flash throughout the company line in celebration of his 75th Anniversary, February will bring everyone’s favorite wild card, Harley Quinn, on DC covers, and perhaps the best mash-ups of comics and famous movie posters will arrive in March.
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 …
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:
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.
