Dynamite Celebrates 50 Years of Vampirella with a New Series from Christopher Priest
Vampirella is back in a new ongoing series by a blockbuster creative team, to celebrate her milestone birthday! Issue #1 will be on sale the same day and date as the iconic first magazine from 1969, and also coinciding with the first day of San Diego Comic Con’s 50th convention!
Following a Free Comic Book Day #0 issue shrouded in mystery, Vampirella is celebrating her big banner 50th Gold Anniversary in July 2019! And a new series is exactly what she and her fans need to celebrate this milestone! The one and only fan-favorite and critically acclaimed writer Christopher Priest is bringing his trademark literary and inventive stylings to one of the most influential, beloved female characters in comic books. Don’t miss the debut of his run in Vampirella FCBD #0 on Saturday May 4th!
Joining Priest on art (and colors!) is Ergün Gündüz. The well renowned Turkish talent is sure to impress fans around the world with his unique style. Lettering will be handled by the talented Willie Schubert. This experienced creative team will bring their all to the Scion of Drakulon’s new tales.
The history-making series will feature cover after cover from the greatest artists today. For the first issue, fans can choose a wraparound cover featuring Vampi in a way only Frank Cho could render her, incorporating his recent acclaimed ballpoint pen techniques. Or pick up a cover from the peerless Alex Ross. While Joe Jusko steps up to bat as another classic painter in the industry known for his work on Vampi and so many other titles. Guillem March marks his first work at Dynamite with a jaw dropping cover. A blockbuster Women of Dynamite title is not complete without a talented cosplayer, with Erica Fett kicking things off for #1. A real treat for longtime Vampi fans is Adam Hughes recreating his own cover in an homage to 1992’s Vampirella #1 for an incentive variant. Going back even more old school, fans of the beautiful Warren era and the Spanish masters will be overjoyed to learn of a limited edition Sanjulian variant!
