Nicole Beharie is talented and beautiful. A Julliard-trained performer with intensity and charisma to spare. As Abbie Mills on Fox's popular fantasy drama, Sleepy Hollow, Beharie has formed a potent twosome with co-star Tom Mison's Ichabod Crane. Their wonderful chemistry was the saving grace of a rocky season two. With the start of season 3 only days away, Beharie was able to fit in a sexy but tasteful photo spread for Playboy Magazine while on hiatus.

Smile! Abbie Mills and the Sleepy Hollow Season 3 premiere on October 1st are not too far away.

The Florida-native got her first film role just a year removed from Julliard. A series of heavy dramas followed including Shame with Michael Fassbender (whom she dated for two years). Beharie has constantly challenged herself with every new role, as she told Playboy
“I’m interested in showing every side of being a woman,” says Nicole, who also stars in the 2013 Jackie Robinson biopic 42. “Whether my character is a vixen or strong and sultry, it’s my goal to shake things up.”
It's the role as the smart and tough police lieutenant Mills that has brought her a lot of notoriety for a number of reasons. She's the first black woman to lead a genre show. A show that mixes historical thriller, supernatural horror, and buddy cop action. More than anything Beharie demonstrates strength, confidence and passion in her performance. It also doesn't hurt that she and Mison have great chemistry. 



Their witty banter and his man-out-of-time awkwardness endeared them to fans so much that they've shipped them together and dubbed them "Ichabbie." Overwhelmingly, fans want to see them romantically involved, especially now that Ichabod's witch of a wife met her doom last season. This upcoming season finds them facing new supernatural threats with new love interests that could put a damper on the whole Ichabbie business.

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:

REVIEW: 'Death or Glory' #2 by Rick Remender and Bengal

After a raucous debut, 'Death and Glory' takes a weird turn. Like a really weird turn. Imagine David Lynch and Quentin Tarantino had a baby and out came out issue two of this new series from Rick Remender and Bengal. The question is is that a good or bad thing?


DEATH OR GLORY #2  
Writer: Rick Remender Artist: Bengal Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: June 6, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
With a botched heist job, a bullet in her side, and all her money gone, Glory wrestles with what to do next. The cargo her ex-husband was trafficking wasn't drugs but people and after putting them all safely on a bus to Arizona, she's broke and being attended to by one of the Brazilians that stayed behind. Her scheme was pretty straight-forward - rob the money that the dirty sheriff was going to transport and use it for her dad's surgery. Easy peasy. Then it all went to hell as the sheriff recognized her, she dropped the money, and now no one is happy, not the sheri…
