Lady Rawhide/Lady Zorro Debuts in March

Dynamite Entertainment has announced the March 2015 debut of Lady Rawhide / Lady Zorro #1, the first chapter of a four-part miniseries that will see two of the comic book industry’s Western heroines cross paths for the first time. Written by Shannon Eric Denton and featuring interior artwork by Rey VillegasLady Rawhide / Lady Zorro #1 features cover artwork by acclaimed artist and Lady Rawhide co-creator, Mike Mayhew.

In Lady Rawhide / Lady Zorro #1, the two female vigilantes must live up to the legend of Zorro after the inspirational hero is murdered! When brutal slavers descend upon a village and steal away all its adolescent girls, Lady Zorro and Lady Rawhide – who would sooner ride alone than ride together – must put aside their ideological and methodical differences to free the missing girls from a fate worse than death.

Lady Rawhide (along with her alter-ego Anita Santiago) was introduced into the Zorro mythos by writer Don McGregor and artist Mike Mayhew in 1994, a masked vigilante skilled with swords, guns, and her signature bullwhip.  Driven to avenge her brother’s suffering at the hands of a crooked government, she first had an antagonistic relationship with Zorro, but eventually became his confidante and staunch ally.  Lady Rawhide’s popularity as a Zorro regular grew, leading to her headlining several Lady Rawhide comic series.

Lady Zorro is a more recent addition to the Zorro mythos, created in 2012 as a strong supporting cast member of the Zorro Rides Again series by Matt Wagner and John K Snyder III. Seeking vengeance after her husband was murdered by corrupt government officials, Lady Zorro cut a bloody swath across the countryside until the elder swordfighter calmed her rage.  The character appeared in a successful 2014 self-titled series by Alex De Campi and Rey Villegas.

The violent origins of the fictional heroines very much reflects the history of the region, which will be incorporated into the new series.

Lady Rawhide / Lady Zorro #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ January 2015 Previews catalog and slated for release in March.

Dynamite Takes Familiar Characters to Altered States

Dynamite Entertainment has announced the first wave of its all-new Altered States line where familiar characters from Dynamite’s comics will appear in brand-new adventures unlike anything fans have seen before. Vampirella, Red Sonja, The Shadow, and Doc Savage will each star in their own story set in a parallel reality in the vein of DC’s classic Elseworlds and Marvel’s What If! where anything can – and will – happen to them.

The publisher has brought on an array of the industry’s top talent to help tell these unique tales:

  • Writer Brandon Jerwa teams up with artist Juanan Ramirez for Altered States: Red Sonja, a story about a red headed museum worker in New York City who soon finds herself fighting for survival in a dystopian-inspired Hyborian wasteland.
  • In Altered States: Vampirella, veteran Vampirella scribe Nancy A. Collins and artist Francesco Manna turn the tables on Ella Normandy after she survives a crash landing to become the sole human on a planet full of Vampires.
  • Writer David Avallone pulls double duty in this special event, teaming up with artist Ivan Rodriguez for Altered States: The Shadow, and a tale that proves once and more that there are worse things in the world than the evil that lurks within the hearts of men. Then in Altered States: Doc Savage, David and artist Dave Acosta explore what happens when the world’s most powerful man is turned into a rampaging beast whose very humanity may be lost forever.

Each issue will feature a cover by Billy tan.

Each Altered States story will unfold in a 32 page full-color comic. With a new issue planned for release every Wednesday in March.

Altered States will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ January Previews catalog and slated for release March 2015.

Meanwhile, it is to that once-proud city, now stained with blood and madness, that Tyrion Lannister is dispatched by his father, Tywin, to rule as regent for the young King Joffrey. And across the sea, Daenerys learns that her son is dead… and her husband worse than dead.

When Doc Savage’s Fortress is blown to bits by the combined brain-trust of The Voodoo Master and our all-powerful mystery villain, the battleground for the soul of mankind moves to New York City where the agents of The Shadow and Doc’s team are nowhere to be found! As Doc battles a dark menace over the skies of New York, The Shadow confronts The Voodoo Master in Coney Island’s House of Horrors. Stalemated, it’s up to Richard Henry Benson, the world’s newest Avenger, to learn how to manipulate his frozen, zombie-like face and mold it into masterful disguises, to stop them from controlling Time, itself, to solve the mystery of his wife and daughter’s disappearance, and to do what he is now cruelly fated to do— Avenge!

Warren Ellis’ Project Superpowers Epic, Blackcross, Welcomes Colton Worley and more!

Dynamite Entertainment has announced the full creative team for Project Superpowers: Blackcross, a supernatural thriller written by comic book luminary Warren Ellis. Colton Worley, the fan-favorite Dynamite mainstay whose previous works include The Shadow Now and The Complete Dracula, will lend his atmospheric, hyper-realistic art style to the project. The March 2015 debut of Blackcross will be supported by a generous helping of variant covers from industry superstars and previous Ellis collaborators, including Jae Lee, Tula Lotay, Declan Shalvey, Jason Howard, Gabriel Hardman, and interior artist Colton Worley himself.

In the all-new Project Superpowers series, Warren Ellis and Colton Worley take readers on a sinister journey away from the brightly clad heroes of the Golden Age, and into the small town of Blackcross, nestled in the Pacific Northwest.  All small towns have secrets, but Blackcross has more secrets than most… it’s a lonesome place, haunted by something truly impossible. Project Superpowers: Blackcross is a ghost story about something reaching out from the other side of the night, through the forest and mist of a remote town, to grasp at the hearts of its unsuspecting residents — victims who won’t know that they’re the targets of a strange killer until it’s much, much too late.

Dynamite first announced Ellis’ participation in a Project Superpowers series in April 2014.

Alongside a handful of Dynamite’s most beloved cover artists, Project Superpowers: Blackcross #1 will showcase a number of artists from Warren Ellis’ most popular recent releases, including Declan Shalvey (from Ellis’ acclaimed run on Marvel’s Moon Knight), Tula Lotay of the Image Comics title, Supreme: Blue Rose, and Jason Howard of Trees. Jae Lee, the superstar artist of Batman/Superman, has a long history of providing highly sought-after cover editions for Dynamite Entertainment titles, as have Gabriel Hardman (Magnus: Robot Fighter) and, of course, Colton Worley.

Project Superpowers: Blackcross #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ January 2015 Previews catalog for release in March. Project Superpowers: Blackcross will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms.

The legend of the Lone Ranger and Tonto lives on, in two-fisted tales from the Old West! Thrill to the famous masked man’s adventures as he avenges the cold-blooded murder of Abilene marshal Tom “Bear River” Smith, rescues a stranded wagon and its precious cargo from a deadly Colorado blizzard, saves an elderly rainmaker from a lynch mob during a season of drought, pursues a high-strung outlaw after a botched bank heist, foils the train robbery by a war-obsessed Chiricahua renegade, and averts the starvation of an Arapaho tribe after pleasure-seekers hunt their only food source — the American buffalo — to near extinction. Also, Tonto takes center stage in a origin story that proves that a rider is only as good as his horse, as his escape from Fort Garland leads to a fateful first encounter with his trusty stead, Scout.

This graphic novel collects issues 18-25, and features all of the beautiful covers by Eisner Award-winning cover artist Francesco Francavilla!
