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.
