And so, all the gods of all the pantheons vowed: everyone with enough power to kill Purgatori is going to, well, kill Purgatori. No, seriously. Evil Ernie kills Purgatori. The Sacred Six kill Purgatori. Lilith kills Puragtori. Huh, that was quick. Guess it’s all over now…
OR IS IT? Obviously not. Someone somewhere would have a trick up her sleeves her outfit had sleeves. Also, for the first time ever: the eon place on Earth Purgatori has never been.

THE GODS HAVE PUT A PRICE ON PURGATORI’S HEAD!
Purgatori’s always pissing somebody off — but this time she may have gone too far! It may have some connection to her growing insanely powerful and probably starting to kill and eat the gods. In fact, that last part for sure. And gods are like potato chips, right? It’s not like she’s going to stop at one. And so, the various pantheons have pooled their not inconsiderable resources to offer up a big prize to whatever psycho manages to kill her. Who wants to try? Hey, who doesn’t?! The creative team behind Vampirella Vs. Purgatori and the recent Purgatori miniseries reunite for the grand third act of this Purgatori saga! Guest-starring Evil Ernie, Vampirella, the Sacred Six… and more!

In Space Job no one can hear you procrastinate

Dark Horse Comics has announced Space Job, an all-new series by writer David A. Goodman. The crew of the SS George H.W. Bush may not be the best in the galaxy, but they’re, well… a crew. Space Job features art by Álvaro Sarraseca and colors by Jordi Escuin Llorach.  

It’s the future, and serving aboard the S.S. Bush is the worst job in the fleet. The Captain is every terrible, self-centered boss you’ve ever had, more concerned with what he bought on Space eBay than he is in getting the work done; the Communications Officer always seems to be on a personal call, and nothing gets fixed because the Chief Engineer really is only interested in hitting on his coworkers.   They’re on a simple cargo run, and the biggest threat to the ship is the fact that the Operations Officer, the one guy holding it all together, is updating his resume. What could go wrong?

Space Job #1 (of 4) will be available in comic shops February 8, 2023. It is available for pre-order now at your local comic shop and will retail for $3.99.

Purgatori Must Die in a New Series!

Purgatori is always managing to piss somebody off. The ancient vampire-demoness has lived for thousands of years and accrued many enemies, mortal and beyond. But this time, she may have finally gone too far! Purgatori Must Die debuts this January.

Writer Ray Fawkes continues his chronicling of the character, following Vampirella vs. Purgatori and Purgatori. He’s reunited with artist Alvaro Sarraseca, alongside colorist Salvatore Aiala, and letterer Tom Napolitano.

Recently Purgatori’s control of her own mind and restraint with her power has been slipping. Not only does she suck the blood of her victims, she also absorbs not only any abilities they may have, but also fragments of their memories and personalities. Her patchwork mind has become more and more tangled through the years, and she’s recently embraced this twisted curse. Her latest victims? Gods. Who don’t take too kindly to being hunted and eaten.

The various pantheons have pooled their collective resources to offer up one historic, humongous bounty for the head of Purgatori, no matter which psycho takes it off her. Who would turn this challenge down? This thrilling third act of the Purgatori saga brings together a who’s who of Purgatori’s nemeses and erstwhile allies from across the Chaos! and Dynamite mythos. Fans can look for Vampirella, Evil Ernie, the Sacred Six, and plenty more to crash the party in what is sure to be an action-packed showdown.

To celebrate this climactic crossover spotlight on Purgatori, Dynamite and editor Matt Idelson have pulled together a hunting party of top talents for covers. Collette Turner brings her stunning take on these powerful female characters over from Vampirella: Year One to another legendary vampire. Joseph Michael Linsner‘s sensual portrayals are always beloved by fans. Then two Purgatori regular artists contribute, with Antonio Fuso and Alvaro Sarraseca.

Sekhmet, the Egyptian goddess of war, has been captured by the mysterious and deadly Ta-Nakht. Time is of the essence, as the god Nick Heart and Samira–Pantha’s human alter ego, try to combat this sinister menace before even more of Nick’s kind disappear. They may have found a powerful ally in Set, the Egyptian god of chaos, but he has ideas of his own about using Pantha’s wrath in the development of a powerful weapon. Will Nick and Samira be able to stop Ta-Nakht before the dark being fulfills its ultimate purpose and wipes out an entire pantheon of deities? Or will Set create a weapon maybe even he can’t control?
