PRESS RELEASE: Following the mega-successful and beloved launch of the new ARCHIE book from the legendary team of Mark Waid and Fiona Staples, superstar artist Annie Wu and rising star Veronica Fish join the series in November.

Wu, known for her stellar work on hit series Hawkeye and Black Canary, will handle the art for #4 while Veronica Fish will take on issues #5 and #6.

“Annie has the perfect handle on these characters and we’re lucky to have her come in for a special, one-issue story,” said Archie Comics President Mike Pellerito. “Annie’s a unique and versatile talent and really the perfect person to step in and showcase these characters in a new way, while still holding true to the foundation Fiona put in place.”

Fans got their first glimpse at Veronica Fish’s vibrant take on the Archie gang with her promotional image for the new ‘RIVERDALE’ series in development at The CW.

“Veronica’s a real hidden gem,” Pellerito said. “Mark my words – she’ll be a star before she’s done working on these two issues.”

Fiona Staples, with colorists Andrew Szymanowicz and Jen Vaughn, will continue her character defining run on ARCHIE through September’s issue #3, introducing new faces and fan favorites to the town of Riverdale.

“She not only nailed the style, but also got to the core of each character,” said Pellerito. “Archie, Jughead, Betty, Kevin, Reggie, Midge, Veronica, and so on. Just perfect. Fiona was, hands down, the perfect artist to launch this series, and it shows.”

ARCHIE #2 by Mark Waid and Fiona Staples is on sale Wednesday at comic book stores and digitally.

ARCHIE #4 by Mark Waid and Annie Wu is available in comic book stores and digitally this November.

I love games that make me think; games that involve critical thinking skills and solving puzzles are my jam! The Room & The Room Two were the latest in the games I had become addicted to; I played them every chance I got and was sad when I reached the end.

Knowing I was going through severe gaming withdrawal, a friend suggested Monument Valley to me. I looked at it, and didn’t download it immediately for whatever reason. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, when the same friend told me that it was being offered free on Amazon Prime. I said what the hell, downloaded it, grabbed some coffee and started playing.

PRESS RELEASE: This November, experience a friendship 65 million years in the making and a Marvel team-up that has to be seen to be believed. Today, Marvel is pleased to announce MOON GIRL & DEVIL DINOSAUR #1, a brand-new ongoing series launching this fall as part of All-New, All-Different Marvel. From the creative team of Amy Reeder, Brandon Montclaire and Natacha Bustos comes a story of unlikely friendship in the Mighty Marvel Manner!

Meet Lunella Lafayette, pre-teen super genius who just wants to change the world and help those in need. Possessing latent Inhuman DNA, Lunella’s unsure of what her strange future might hold. But when she stumbles on ancient Kree technology, things are about to get a whole lot stranger.

Opening a doorway to the prehistoric past, her life is turned upside down as she comes face-to-face with a towering Jurassic giant known only as DEVIL DINOSAUR! But he is not alone. Out of the portal and in to the Marvel Universe emerge the Killer-Folk – an ancient tribe of beings who will stop at nothing to acquire the alien technology!

“Something that’s the hallmark of a Marvel Hero is that they’re gifted with a power they may see as a curse. Their hero’s journey is to discover how to use it to help others,” says series Editor Mark Paniccia. “Lunella is a little genius with grand plans on going to big schools, but she’s got an Inhuman gene, unpredictable alien DNA inside that – once triggered – could take her life in a wildly different direction. She’s determined to control that change. She’s going to need to grow up really fast to survive in the new Marvel Universe…luckily she will have Devil Dinosaur at her side.”

Lunella’s about to learn the hard way that it’ll take more than just big brains to save the world. This unlikely duo are many things, but together, they’re the unstoppable Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur! Prepare for a Marvel series unlike any you’ve seen before when MOON GIRL & DEVIL DINOSAUR #1 comes to comic shops and digital devices this November!

Title: Metaphase
Publisher: Alterna Comics
Written by: Chip Reese
Artwork by: Kelly Williams
Rating: 5 out of 5

Ollie was born different: Not only is he the son of a Superhero, but he has Down Syndrome and a Heart Defect. But Ollie is even more special and different than even his Dad could have ever imagined…

Diversity in comics is not always limited to people of color or sexual orientation; it expands to people with both mental and physical handicaps. This comic not only tackles the issue of Down Syndrome, it runs it over at the 50 yard line and does the Superbowl Shuffle in the zone. Ollie just wants what other kids want – to be a superhero just like is dad and make him proud – and to be just like everyone else. Even though his body can’t handle it, he still wants to be “super”… and as always, evil is just around the corner, looking to exploit his weakness.

Chip Reese allows us a glimpse into his life (his son is the hero and motivation for this story) through words, and Kelly Williams brings it to life through great line work & color. I’m glad he did, as the fact that this issue & story takes all the super hero stereotypes and breaks that barrier with an unlikely candidate is amazing, and I look forward to reading more!
