Originally debuting in 1994, Vengeance of Vampirella portrayed a more savage and feral look at the Daughter of Drakulon. Now, for the 50th Anniversary of Vampirella, original series writer Tom Sniegoski (joined by the incredible art of Michael Sta. Maria) is back and issue #1 features a host of incredible cover artists. Set 25 years after the initial series, Vampirella is Dead!? Long Live Vampirella! Humanity holds on, but barely, the playthings and slaves of a multitude of supernatural monstrosities that have made the earth their own. Mistress Nyx continues to rule the planet, her Chaos Lords reigning over the various regions of the world, but she is getting bored – there’s no one to challenge her! That is, until a small, but determined rebellion finds what could be their savior or seal their doom!

This new series – and anniversary event – is not to be missed!

Fwoosh! What sound effect does a boomerang make? Find out this August when Dynamite releases The Death-Defying ‘Devil #1 by Gail Simone and Walter Geovani!

The Master of Courage returns!

In this yarn inspired by Rod Serling, Bronze Age horror/mystery anthologies, and modern street-level heroics, the ‘Devil finds himself beaten and bloodied in the backyard of a ramshackle apartment building. The diverse cast of tenants take him in and across each issue they are explored in-depth. Each has their own unique problems, while a strange force also menaces the building as a whole. The ‘Devil makes it his mission to solve all of these puzzles, even when he learns that one of his new neighbors is a traitor.

A whole legion of painterly artists are contributing covers to this blockbuster series. Riccardo Federici leads the pack, Tyler Kirkham has some fun with a spray effect, Ben Oliver turns in a playing card-inspired cover featuring the villain Deadly Dreaded Dragon, while fan-favorites Lucio Parillo and In-Hyuk Lee strike iconic heroic poses. As a throwback for Project Superpowers fans, a special incentive “Carve Out” cover features Alex Ross‘ history-making depiction.
