JUGHEAD: THE HUNGER Becomes an Ongoing Series from Frank Tieri, Pat and Tim Kennedy

Fan-favorite writer Frank Tieri (THE HANGMAN, Wolverine) and artists Pat & Tim Kennedy (THE DEATH OF ARCHIE) deliver a new wave of madness in October with a brand new ongoing series spinning out of the bestselling JUGHEAD: THE HUNGER ONE-SHOT!


During the full moon, Riverdale falls under siege. After discovering his dark lineage in March's JUGHEAD: THE HUNGER ONE-SHOT by Frank Tieri and Michael Walsh, Jughead Jones struggles to put his past behind him with Betty Cooper: Werewolf Hunter and Archie Andrews hot on his trail!


"We purposely left the door open with the one shot, we told you if you made JUGHEAD THE HUNGER a hit we'd make more-- and since you more than held up your end of the bargain-- here we are," said writer Frank Tieri. "Fans can expect more of everything they loved about the one shot now as we expand our universe-- more werewolf Juggie, more bad ass Betty, more conflicted Archie and more twists and turns than you can shake a severed arm at.”


Artists Pat and Tim Kennedy, known for their work on the LIFE WITH ARCHIE series and the headline-making event THE DEATH OF ARCHIE, join Tieri in bringing the classic characters into a world twisted by supernatural elements. Colorist Matt Herms (THE ARCHIES) and letterer Jack Morelli (AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE) will also add their talents to the series.


“They're doing a great job, capturing the look and feel of the original as much as possible while still bringing their unique style to the table,” said Tieri.

The new series debuts in comic shops and on digital platforms just in time for Halloween on October 25th, 2017 and features covers by Francesco Francavilla, Robert Hack, and Michael Walsh.

Beware Jughead’s hunger – and watch out for the full moon!

REVIEW: 'Redneck' #2 by Donny Cates, Lisandro Estherren, and Dee Cunniffe

'Redneck' arrived a month ago redefining the vampire genre by not giving into convention or cliché. In fact, if you've read the first two issues, the vampire angle serves more as subtext than its selling point. It's the perfect approach to this character-driven southern fried drama that simmers with tension and intrigue.

★★★★☆ (4/5)
The Bowman's way of life just got upended and what was once a peaceful and secluded existence is on the verge of war. The vampires of Texas keep to themselves, raise their cattle, drink its blood and sell the meat through their BBQ joint. Seems like a brilliant front to keep them in the shadows while staking out a living. All that is threatened when one of their own is killed after a night on the town. This issues fills in the holes to what might have happened and what the hell is…

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 …
