New series, new team, new missions! VITA AYALA (Morbius, Age Of X-Man), DANNY LORE (Queen Of Bad Dreams) and ERIC GAPSTUR (James Bond 007) present a fresh take on the world’s greatest secret agent. When a priceless piece of art is found to be fake, investigations lead down a rabbit hole of international crime and corruption. But what the hell does James Bond know about the world of art forgery?
Featuring a cover by superstar JIM CHEUNG (Justice League, Young Avengers), that will be revealed as an interlocking image over the first three issues!
Starting in February, Dynamite has announced the Eisner-nominated Mark Russell is kicking off his second full year on the She-Devil with a Sword in the flagship Red Sonja, joined once more by the masterful Bob Q and the return of Jae Lee to Dynamite!
Following 12 issues and two tie-in one-shots, Red Sonja #13 starts with Sonja the Red in a an unfamiliar position. In the beginning of this epic, she was crowned Queen of Hyrkania, pitting her in battle against Dragan the Magnificent. As the two leaders pushed and pulled on the map, one must come out victorious. This glory is short-lived, as now in a time of relative peace and still on the throne of her conquered kingdom, Sonja must deal with the impossible part… ruling. With no food, infrastructure or plan, she must make some extremely difficult choices, compromises and alliances, lest her reign come to an anticlimactic end.
The absolute cherry on top is superstar Jae Lee returning to Dynamite to lead the legion of talented cover artists attached to this series. He joins the likes of Amanda Conner, Joseph Michael Linsner, Bob Q himself and others.

Dynamite has announced two special versions of Warren Ellis‘ iconic James Bond comics for release in February. Collecting all of Ellis’ espionage epic together in one oversized hardcover volume is the James Bond: The Complete Warren Ellis Omnibus. Included inside are the entire 12 issues that kicked off Bond’s epic return to comic books in 2015, by one of the greatest writers of the medium and instant star South African artist Jason Masters. In addition to the critically acclaimed VARGR and Eidolon story arcs, every single cover is included, from the likes of Jock, Francesco Francavilla, Dominic Reardon, Joe Jusko, Ben Oliver, Glenn Fabry, Dan Panosian, Robert Hack, and more.
For fans who have never picked up a James Bond comic and want a taste test, or veterans who’d like to revisit that joyful feeling of reading the authentic Fleming-inspired spy tales for the first time, Dynamite is also releasing a Dynamite Dollar Edition of the original first issue. Advertising within the issue will direct fans who can’t get enough to check out the omnibus volume and further Bond case files, such as the current series by writers Vita Ayala, Danny Lore, and artist Eric Gapstur.
This globetrotting adventure takes Bond from his native Britain to Helsinki, Berlin, Los Angeles and further. Ostensibly tasked with breaking up a drug-trafficking operation, the entire scheme unravels with unexpected variables galore. Can Bond break through the political mist and accomplish his mission, let alone survive?
February is just around the corner, and love is in the air! To celebrate the season of flirty fun, Dynamite is releasing a curated selection of themed variant covers by fan-favorite artists for fans to collect. These special covers feature on Death to the Army of Darkness #1, Vampirella/Red Sonja #6, Red Sonja #13, and Dejah Thoris #3. Sebastián Píriz tackles the first, homaging a timeless classic with Ash taking on quite the handsy deadite bride. Illustrator Lynne Yoshii has Red Sonja providing some platonic protection for her latest loved one. While Superstar Sanya Anwar pulls double duty with two separate picture-perfect portrayals of the Women of Dynamite, one of which checks off a bucket list item for her.
Ash Williams is back in a new series, Death to the Army of Darkness, in February from Dynamite – but wait, there are more Ash Williams?!
The “Chosen One” has had enough of that nonsense, but gets way more than he bargained for when Ashley Joanna Williams suddenly splinters into multiple differing clones. And each is packing the same over the top personality as the original! Writer Ryan Parrott has concocted this comedy-horror extravaganza alongside artist Jacob Edgar. Their groovy crew is completed with colorist Kike J. Díaz and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou – who must have cloned himself to double as one of the best letterers and an Eisner-winning critic!
Picking up just barely after the legendary Army of Darkness film, the big mixup is of course due to some classic bad translation of the Necronomicon. Introducing the cast… Ash is joined by the personification of his feminine side with Ashley Williams, the erratic Lil’ Ash, Dash aka Doggie Ash, the cynical and morose Skeleton Ash and Chainy – Ash’s now sentient chainsaw!
Together they must travel through time to Ancient Egypt and prevent the Necronomicon from ever being written in the first place. Along the way, can Ash solve his split personality predicament – and how would the others feel about that? Could one of the party members be hiding something? Fans will just have to read to find out!
To celebrate all these fun new characters, Dynamite has enlisted its own wacky crew of cover artists. Ben Oliver leads the pack, perfectly capturing the attitudes of each of Ash’s new compatriots. The “Zombie King” himself, Arthur Suydam is a natural addition to the team. Mirka Andolfo brings her signature style. Fans can also be on the lookout for a special Valentine’s variant by Sebastián Píriz and a remastered Icon incentive cover featuring J. Scott Campbell‘s piece from Dynamite’s first-ever Army of Darkness comic book 15 years ago!
