NYCC 2013: Dynamite’s Dawn & Vampirella Crossover Event
Dynamite has announced that the acclaimed Joseph Michael Linsner will, for the first time ever, launch a crossover event sharing the spotlight between his beloved creator-owned heroine Dawn and the comic book horror icon Vampirella. Dedicated fans of the two femme fatales can enjoy the six-issue Dawn / Vampirella series when it debuts in early 2014, featuring a whimsical script and breathtaking covers by Linsner himself. 2014 marks the 25th anniversary for Dawn which debuted in 1989 with Cry for Dawn #1.
In Dawn / Vampirella, a ten-headed demon named Ravana tricks Dawn and Vampirella, snatching them away and holding them hostage. With the two most beautiful women in all worlds at his mercy, Ravana wishes to select one as a mate to usher in a new age. Rather than a challenge of physical prowess, the ladies choose a more sophisticated and feminine contest, facing each other instead in a competition of storytelling prowess. If Dawn wins, the new age will be one of light. If Vampirella wins, it will be an age of darkness. Together, they take Ravana to the bloody shores of Drakulon, to post-apocalyptic New York, and to worlds beyond his wildest dreams. Ultimately, the ladies know that they must join forces to overcome him… but what common ground can be found between Goddess and Vampire?
The Dawn / Vampirella miniseries is slated for release in early 2014 and will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.
