Vampirella #1 Gets a Print Run of Over 130,000 Copies

Vampirella #1

Vampirella is flying high for her big 50th anniversary! Dynamite has announced that the upcoming Vampirella #1 has blasted through expectations and is a massive success with an initial print run of over 130,000 copies! The issue is by writer Christopher Priest, artist Ergün Gündüz and a range of top tier cover artists fronted by Frank Cho.

This historic number includes all orders through Diamond, specialty retailers, and creator exclusive covers. This incredible sales number is the highest for a full price comic in Dynamite’s storied 15-year history. Furthermore, 130 thousand copies is higher than all recorded paid circulation numbers for the original Vampirella magazine – making this possibly also the best selling Vampirella comic book of all time!

Dynamite is confident in this blockbuster new series and made the first issue returnable for retailers, which is also continuing for the second issue to allow retailers to order aggressively with minimal risk and maximum reward. Retailers can order without worry and be prepared to serve the needs of Vampirella diehards who go back 50 years themselves as well as the growing crowd of new fans!

Dynamite’s team is already working hard to continue this success through the year and moving forward. Vampirella #2 features an eye-popping main cover from Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, perhaps the biggest artist in the industry today. Then the next issue is spearheaded by the iconic J. Scott Campbell. Each issue features additional covers from talented artists as well as top cosplay models.

Initial orders for Vampirella #2 are due this Thursday June 27.

Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy Get a Miniseries Post Heroes in Crisis

Heroes in Crisis was a bit of a bumpy ride but it cemented the loving relationship between Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. In the series, Poison Ivy was reborn having merged with a rose seed she gave Harley to plant. She’s now more of a plant-based being.

The two will team up this September in a six-issue miniseries, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, by Jody Houser and Adriana Melo.

Out September 4, the series features a main cover by Elena Casagrande, “Harley Quinn card stock variant cover” by Stanley “Artgerm” Lau and a “Poison Ivy card stock variant cover” also by Lau.

Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy are taking their show on the road in this new miniseries! They’ll have to evade villains and heroes alike while they explore their relationship and unpack their time and experiences at Sanctuary. Set after the events of HEROES IN CRISIS and smack in the middle of “Year of the Villain,” it’s a journey across the DC Universe that will change their friendship forever…if they live that long!

Dynamite can also confirm that writer Christopher Priest will be on the title for a full year and counting. Alongside the rest of his creative team, the Eisner-nominated auteur is brewing a legendary run in the making.

Vampirella’s success will continue through 2019, especially once everyone gets the chance to bite into the full first issue. Sensational cover artist Stanley “Artgerm” Lau contributes the primary cover to the second issue, followed by the iconic J. Scott Campbell on #3, and continued cosplay covers from top models and influencers. Even more stunning and surprising covers await fans and collectors, including the final professional work of a legend, to be announced… While the fall will bring additional comics and merchandise that will appeal to longtime diehards and the wave of new Vampi fans.

Titan Comics Reveals the Covers and More Details for Blade Runner 2019

Yesterday (April 10, 2019) is a special date for Blade Runner fans — it’s the exact date of rogue Replicant Leon “Let Me Tell You About My Mother” Kowalski’s inception. (Even casual fans remember Leon as the Nexus-6 synthetic human who shoots the Blade Runner giving him a Voight-Kompff empathy test during the film’s opening sequence inside the imposing Tyrell Corporation double pyramid).

To mark the occasion, Titan Comics and Alcon Entertainment unveiled the first covers and further details for Blade Runner 2019 — a brand-new, in canon series set during the exact timeframe of the original Blade Runner film.

In the polluted and rain-drenched neo-noir nightmare that is Los Angeles, 2019, the veteran Blade Runner known as Ash has a new case: a billionaire’s wife and child, both apparently kidnapped by violent Replicants.

The 12-issue series is being written by acclaimed Blade Runner 2049 screenwriter Michael Green and veteran collaborator Mike Johnson, with interior art by noted artist Andres Guinaldo.

Blade Runner 2019 will debut July 17, 2019.  The first issue—featuring variant covers by Artgerm, Syd Mead, Andres Guinaldo, and John Royle, among others—is available to pre-order through the upcoming May edition (for July shipping) of Diamond PREVIEWS.

Blade Runner 2019 #1 Gets a Cover from Stanley “Artgerm” Lau

Titan unveiled a fresh look at Blade Runner 2019 – a brand-new comic set during the exact timeframe of the original Blade Runner film.

The comic is written by acclaimed Blade Runner 2049 screenwriter Michael Green and veteran collaborator Mike Johnson, with interior art by noted artist Andres Guinaldo.

Titan’s Blade Runner 2019 comics are set to debut in summer.

Catwoman Gets an Ongoing Series by Joëlle Jones

Announced at C2E2, Joëlle Jones will be taking on Catwoman in her own solo ongoing series. The series will spin out of the “Bat wedding” taking place in Batman #50.

Catwoman’s back on the streets dealing with a mysterious copycat and taking on a brand new, as-yet-unrevealed villain.

The revealed solicitation:

The wedding night’s barely over, but Catwoman’s back on the streets, this time to expose a copycat who’s pulling heists around Gotham City. As Selina cracks the whip on her former criminal cohorts, she’s attracting unwanted attention from one of Gotham’s most dangerous groups. The mob? Nope. Try the GCPD. And as if the Bat-Bride didn’t have enough problems, there’s an all-new villain determined to make trouble for all nine of Selina’s lives.

The series will be written by and feature art by Jones with color by Laura Allred and variant covers by Stanley “Artgerm” Lau.

Catwoman #1 will debut in July.
