riverdale-cwBased on the characters from Archie Comics, Riverdale gives a subversive take on small-town life. Things aren’t always what you expect in Riverdale. As a new school year begins, the town is reeling from the tragic death of high school golden boy Jason Blossom. The summer’s events made all-American teen Archie Andrews realize that he wants to pursue a career in music, but his fractured friendship with Jughead Jones, and Josie McCoy’s focus on her own band leaves Archie without a mentor. Meanwhile, girl-next-door Betty Cooper is not ready to reveal her true feelings for Archie, and new student, Veronica Lodge, has an undeniable spark with Betty’s crush. And then there’s Cheryl Blossom, Riverdale’s queen bee, who stirs up trouble amongst Archie, Betty and Veronica. But is Cheryl hiding something about the mysterious death of her twin brother, Jason? Riverdale may look like a quiet, sleepy town, but there’s so much more to the story.

“Riverdale is full of nostalgic Archie elements, but this all-new series brings viewers mystery, seduction, and corruption; and would probably make the original gang blush,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, Television Marketing. “We’re thrilled to offer fans this dark, subversive pleasure – along with exclusive DVD and Blu-ray bonus content – just in time for the second season premiere on The CW.”

It’s a world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear both irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods, like Technology and Media. Mr. Wednesday seeks to build a coalition of Old Gods to defend their existence in this new America, and reclaim some of the influence that they’ve lost. As Shadow travels across the country with Mr. Wednesday, he struggles to accept this new reality, and his place in it.

Fans of the show can now get some great, limited edition, graphic tees from Represent who is working with cast members to design tees in support of their favorite charities.  These will be released each weekend throughout the rest of season 1.  Here is what’s currently available.

Despite fighting to protect the galaxy, Cassian Andor and K-2SO haven’t always been on the same side of the Galactic Civil War – and readers will find out why in this new story, which includes the two characters meeting each other for the very first time!

“When I first heard about ROGUE ONE, I was thrilled,” said series writer Duane Swierczynski. “A heist movie set in the Star Wars universe? Are you kidding? Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d be invited to tell a small piece of that story. And it was even cooler that I was asked to write about the first meeting of Cassian and K-2SO — easily my two favorite characters in the movie. What can I say? I love bad-asses and robots.”

Without spoiling anything, we can confirm that this IS the droid you are looking for when Marvel releases STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE – CASSIAN & K-2SO SPECIAL #1, available wherever comics are sold this August!

Butcher Billy Combines Stephen King Stories & Heartbreak Songs Into Sensational Book Covers

Butcher Billy is a creative director at a successful digital agency in Brazil.  When he isn’t keeping clients happy, he spends his spare time working with pop culture themes to create some sensational art of his own.  He’s used characters from DC, Marvel, Stranger Things, Star Wars, music, politics and more to create images that resonate with the masses who adore his signature style.

Butcher-billy-profile

His latest project tackles one of literature’s luminaries, Stephen King.  By combing some of King’s work paired with “heartbreak songs of the 70’s and 80’s” he has once again left us flabbergasted by his brilliance.  Behold, “Stephen King’s Stranger Love Songs” by Butcher Billy.

Screen Shot 2017-05-16 at 10.20.16 PM.png

Screen Shot 2017-05-16 at 10.21.22 PM.png

Stephen King is one of the most influential authors of horror, supernatural fiction, suspense, science fiction, and fantasy. His dark and twisted imagination has been crucial in shaping the contemporary pop culture since the late 70’s – when his novels were first discovered by filmmakers like Stanley Kubrick and Brian De Palma – until more recently with modern TV series like Stranger Things paying homage to his brilliant influence and monumental contribution to pop culture. – Butcher Billy

Screen Shot 2017-05-16 at 10.22.33 PM.png

This series imagines an alternate universe in which some of the most hopeless, desperate and tragic heartbreak songs of the 70’s and 80’s were actually novels written by Stephen King. The concept is to look at the dark side of love through the lenses of pop culture, bringing twisted aspects of his classic stories to play with the original meanings of the songs – that can be completely subverted or strangely emphasized, while paying tribute to the vintage design of the original book covers and VHS cases. – Butcher Billy

Screen Shot 2017-05-16 at 10.23.15 PM.pngAs you can see, Butcher Billy has churned out another sensational project.  We absolutely love the songs chosen and the images make us wish we could put these books on OUR shelf.

DC-LOT-S2DC’s Legends of Tomorrow amps up the firepower for Season Two of the Super Hero team-up series by enlisting both a league and a legion of new characters to join the legendary crew of the Waverider.  Charged with protecting the timeline from temporal aberrations – changes to history that spawn potentially catastrophic consequences – the Legends reassemble with the addition of historian Nate Heywood (aka Citizen Steel) and Justice Society of America member Amaya Jiwe (aka Vixen).  And yet, for every force of good, there is an opposing force of darkness.  In Season Two, the Legends of Tomorrow face off against the first ever team of DC Super-Villains: the Legion of Doom, including Malcolm Merlyn, Damien Darhk, Captain Cold and the Reverse Flash.  After saving the world from Vandal Savage and the corrupt Time Masters, the Legends of Tomorrow are now charged with protecting time (past, present and future) itself, taking them across history and up against the power of the Spear of Destiny – a threat unlike any humanity has ever known.
