In the wake of Slade Wilson’s death, a new Deathstroke has vowed to complete his last, unfinished assignment. But the master assassin Shado has plans of her own, looking to step in for the late, great World’s Greatest Assassin and usurp his place in villainous hierarchy. Meanwhile, Rose Wilson discovers the identity of the person responsible for her father’s death. Can her brother, Jericho, stop her from seeking vengeance? Also in this issue, Slade Wilson’s son Jericho accepts Lex Luthor’s offer of power-but he’s determined to use it as a force for good…so why is Lex smiling?
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.
Vampirella is back in all her glory! The heroine returns to an ongoing series to debut on her 50th Gold Anniversary in July 2019! Written by the one and only Christopher Priest, with art by Ergün Gündüz and a legion of jaw dropping covers by Frank Cho, Alex Ross, Guillem March, Joe Jusko, Adam Hughes and more! Fans are clearly excited because initial numbers are indicating the debut will be an extraordinary success for Dynamite!
Current orders project a print run in excess of 60,000 right out the gate! Making it not only the most successful Vampirella comic of the modern era, but also one of the top books for July, with the #1 issue in stores on July 17th – the 50th Anniversary of Vampirella herself!
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. Balancing his trademark serious take on superhero/genre concepts with a deep respect for the character and her history.
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.
