 The Black Hood's return to the cruel and dangerous streets of Philadelphia continues as the critically acclaimed Dark Circle Comics series welcomes artists Robert Hack (CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA) and Greg Scott (Sam Hill, Strange Attractors) for the next chapters of "The Lonely Crusade."


Robert Hack, artist of the hit Archie Horror series CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA joins writer Duane Swierczynski (Judge Dredd, Canary) as the guest artist for January's THE BLACK HOOD #8, bringing his twisted and grim style to the pages of Swierczynki's crime noir thriller.

"We were honored and extremely lucky to have a talent like Michael Gaydos on art for six of the first seven issues of eight The Black Hood,” says Dark Circle Comics Editor Alex Segura. "Robert, paired with our great series colorist, Kelly Fitzpatrick, keeps the book’s gritty, rough vibe but adds a layer of discomfort and uncertainty, which perfectly matches Duane’s brooding script."

"Duane is doing some brilliant work and this script is a blast to draw," said Hack. "Drawing two monthly comics at the same time — as daunting as that sounds, when the comics are this good, they are worth the inevitable ulcers."

Greg Scott joins THE BLACK HOOD in February as the new regular series artist, jumping head-first into Officer Gregory Hettinger's one man fight against a new criminal force known as The Crusaders.

"Greg maintains the dark, moody tone of the first seven issues while injecting his own detailed, noir style. I think fans will be very pleased with his work and we’re excited to get a nice, long run of work out of him and Duane,” Segura added.

THE BLACK HOOD #7 is on sale now from Dark Circle Comics, available at comic shops and on the new Archie Comics app for iOS. Look for THE BLACK HOOD #8 and #9 starting in January 2016.

Especially when they stumble upon the Hood’s real identity... Artist extraordinaire ROBERT HACK (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, The X-Files) as he takes over art duties in this special issue.

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.

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 …
