Savage Tales Are Back To Keep Fans Warm This Winter!

Dynamite has announced Savage Tales: Winter Special featuring more thrilling tales of Dynamite’s biggest stars as well as legends of the pulps.

This December’s special will feature two up-and-coming artists and graduates of the prestigious Kubert School, Mariano Benitez Chapo and Hamish Munro-Cook. They’ll be teaming up with fan-favorite writers Scott Bryan Wilson and David Avallone for two of the four tales in this action packed new one-shot that will be debuting with covers by Arthur Suydam, Liam Sharp, and Rafael Kayanan.

Savage Tales is back with four tales of brutality, thrills and spills. The party starts with “Devil Juice” by Wilson and artist Max Fuchs as Vampirella’s sister Draculina wants revenge on an enemy demon but has to go through a wall of body builders first. Wilson then teams with Benitez Chapo for “Crypt Junkies” as Vampirella accompanies a TV crew when they open a 1,000-year-old sarcophagus… with bloody results. Avallone and Munro-Cook bring us a new story of Captain Gulliver Jones and the savage world of Mars in “His War Chapter II.” Then Avallone and artist Eman Casallos take us to the dying world of Barsoom for more adventures with John Carter, Warlord of Mars and his mate Dejah Thoris.

Savage Tales: Winter Special warms up shelves this December 2022.

Elvira Tries to Escape the Multiverse of Movies!

Elvira and Dynamite Entertainment invite fans to visit “Horrorland” with her this May, as the macabre maven jumps between versions of horror masterpieces and hopefully lives to tell the tale!

In her previous critically acclaimed comic book series, the Mistress of the Dark got to hang out with the ghost of her dearly beloved old friend Vincent Price. Therein, she discovered how sometimes the legends of film can come right into our world, and perhaps vice versa. In the final issue, Vincent revealed that each movie creates its own pocket dimension… and Elvira joined him on a quest into one such realm to rescue a “final girl” scream queen being held hostage by her obsessive director.

Now, in this new universe-spanning odyssey, Elvira is herself trapped in this Multiverse of Movies. She will careen from classic to classic, faced by killers, monsters, and more, as she tries to find her way home. Off the bat in the first issue, she finds herself stalked by a hotel clerk who’s positively psycho! Can she survive the wrath of a serial killer and get to the next part of her journey, or is it all just a Hitchcock-tease?

Writer David Avallone returns once more, as Dynamite’s modern day shepherd for the voice of Elvira. He closely collaborates with the Mistress of the Dark herself, to ensure that fans new and old can truly hear each line in her captivating and iconic voice. This time they are joined by artist Silvia Califano.

Califano contributes covers to the series, as do returning fan-favorites Dave Acosta and John Royle. Plus, of course photos featuring the titular queen of scares herself.

Elvira in Horrorland #1 debuts in May 2022.

Moonstone Books Kickstarts a Kolchak: The Night Stalker 50th Anniversary Graphic Novel

On Tuesday, January 11, 1972, Kolchak: The Night Stalker terrified and delighted audiences on ABC. The TV movie — written by horror legend Richard Matheson and based on an unpublished novel by Jeff Rice — was the highest-rated TV movie in U.S. history. It subsequently spawned both a second TV movie, The Night Stalker, and a cult TV series that ran for just one season, but inspired a generation of storytellers, notably including X-Files creator Chris Carter. 

Moonstone Books is celebrating this pop culture milestone with a Kickstarter campaign for Kolchak: The Night Stalker 50th Anniversary Graphic Novel, edited by James Aquilone. This all-new, 100+ page, full-color graphic novel will feature 10 startling stories chronicling the life of monster-hunting reporter Carl Kolchak. The stories are written by such master storytellers as David Avallone, Rodney Barnes, James Chambers, Nancy Collins, Peter David, Kim Newman, Jonathan Maberry, Richard Christian Matheson, Tim Waggoner, and Aquilone, and illustrated by such amazing artists as Jonathan Marks Barravecchia, Marco Finnegan, Warwick Johnson-Cadwell, Paul McCaffrey, Clara Meath, Julius Ohta, Tom Rogers, J.K. Woodward, and Colton Worley. It features covers by Colton Worley, Jerry Ordway and J.K. Woodward as well as lettering by Thomas Napolitano, coloring by Zac Atkinson, and text design by Shawn T. King.

Kolchak: The Night Stalker 50th Anniversary Graphic Novel also includes an introduction by Richard Christian Matheson, the bestselling horror author/screenwriter/producer and son of The Night Strangler writer Richard Matheson, an essay on the 50th anniversary by Mark Dawidziak, the author of The Nightstalker Companion, and a retrospective of Moonstone Book’s Kolchak publication history by publisher Joe Gentile.

The Kolchak: The Night Stalker 50th Anniversary Graphic Novel Anthology will be available in limited-edition softcover and hardcover editions, both with variant covers. In addition Moonstone Books is creating a special 40-page standalone comic for the Kickstarter, featuring the story “Satanic Panic ’88,” written by James Aquilone and illustrated by Colton Worley, and featuring a cover by Dan Brereton.
