Elvira Returns of Comics in July
Dynamite Entertainment has announced that they’ve partnered with one of the most well-known pop culture icons of all time, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark to produce a new line of comic books and graphic novels. New tales of the gothic beauty with the razor-sharp wit from writer David Avallone and artist Dave Acosta will be making their way to comic shops this July.
The Mistress of the Dark has become unstuck in time and crashes Mary Shelley’s monster weekend, beginning an epic journey through horror history, stalked by the most terrifying nightmare to ever walk the Earth. (No spoilers!) Writer David Avallone and Dave Acosta bring you the thrills, chills and double-entendres in the first chapter of this four-issue miniseries!
Played by actress-writer Cassandra Peterson, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark was the first horror host ever to be syndicated nationally and has emerged as one of the most original and outrageous characters in popular culture today. Her reign as ‘Queen of Halloween’ has now spanned thirty-five years and includes two nationally syndicated television series, two feature films (Elvira, Mistress of the Dark and Elvira’s Haunted Hills), an IMAX movie and two motion control rides. She has appeared in National ad campaigns for Pepsi and Coors, recorded five music CDs, written four books and licensed over Four Hundred products including pinball machines, action figures, guitars, a beer, wine, soda pop, perfume, slot machines and the best-selling female costume of all time.
Elvira: Mistress of the Dark #1 has a cover by superstar artist Joseph Michael Linsner and variant covers by J. Bone, Kyle Strahm, Craig Cermak, and Robert Hack with colors by Francesco Francavilla. Plus, a photo variant cover featuring Elvira from the set of her classic television series.
