GINGERDEAD MAN MEETS EVIL BONG

Action Lab Entertainment has announced a March 28 launch for Gingerdead Man Meets Evil Bong, written by Brockton McKinney and drawn by Sergio Rios.

Here's how Action Lab describes the book:

"It's the wildest, most mind-blowing adventure yet with Evil Bong and Gingerdead Man spanning the universe as they travel from headshops to Bong World to the mysterious Planet Kush! This is the comic book first appearance of the fan-favorite Evil Bong, and a look at Gingerdead Man as we've never seen him before...disgustingly human."

"Series artist Sergio Rios and I wanted to take this book to the next level and give everyone a story so hysterically fun and insanely off-the-rails that you'll think you are in Bong World," McKinney said.





BRIEFLY

NEW ARCHIE SERIES: Archie Comics has announced a May 2 launch for Betty & Veronica: Friends Forever, a new ongoing series written by Bill Golliher and drawn by Dan Parent.

Here's how Archie describes the book:

"Friends Forever will feature the return of the classic style, known across the world for its family-friendly stories and rich history, to the comic shop market to meet growing demand for a classic-style publication in the traditional comic book format. The stories spotlighted in the new series, geared toward comic shops, will also be seen in select B&V digests on the newsstand to maximize the reach of these new classic tales."

"I'm thrilled to be working on my favorite girls, Betty and Veronica, in the style I grew up with," Parent said. "While I love how the characters lend themselves to so many genres, this is the way I love to draw the characters."
