Though it looks like the (allegedly) retired crooks of Bountiful, Utah can run their dirt right under the nose of the Feds without any repercussions, everyone has to serve somebody. When the FBI comes to town demanding answers about the recent rash of murders, even the mob bosses of Bountiful have to snap to attention–but if corrupt Feds think their badges and warrants will keep them safe from the vengeance of Jennifer Blood…they’re about to learn how wrong they are!

Jennifer Blood (Vol. 2) #4

Die!namite Lived, Now It Never Dies!

Dynamite‘s galaxy-spanning zombie crossover featuring countless characters returns with a hotly anticipated third arc this March in Die!namite Never Dies! Even more undead mayhem rises from the grave in this new series by returning writer Fred Van Lente, artist Vincenzo Carratù, colorist Kike J. Diaz, and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou. The creative team infects with loads of flesh-ripping action and even more fun introductions to the world.

Evil (Red) Sonja, Vampirella, Pantha and their crew have beaten back the undead horde from Earth in Die!namite Lives. But what if there is a new army of zombies on Mars that are ready to start a massive invasion? Yet they may need to preemptively invade Mars themselves. But perhaps the heroes will be aided by a new ally…

Deep in a lost valley, one man has his hands full with zombie dinosaurs wreaking havoc in his lands. Hear that cry in the jungle? That’s right, Tarzan, the Lord of the Jungle has joined the fray. But everything gets flipped on its head when Lord Greystoke suddenly finds himself transported to Barsoom. As the beloved creations of Edgar Rice Burroughs come face to face, amid chaos.

The main cover for the first issue is a fun classic film poster inspired piece by superstar creative duo Tony Fleecs and Trish Forstner, of Stray Dogs fame. Returning cover artists and zombie experts Lucio Parrillo, Arthur Suydam, and Joseph Michael Linsner also contribute.

Jennifer Blood’s “Blood Debt” Comes Due in March 2022

Jennifer Blood has survived one of her deadliest battles against organized crime yet, and starting this March with Jennifer Blood #6, the “Blood Debt” is due.

The Garth Ennis-created Jennifer Blood is a fan-favorite antiheroine with a mission to crack down on organized crime by any means necessary, and a secret identity unlike any other. In her latest return to comic book shelves, writer Fred Van Lente and artist Vincenzo Federici have led the character through a thrilling bloodbath of a critically acclaimed first arc. In the first five issues, she battled against undercover mob bosses in the town of Bountiful, as well as another hitwoman nemesis that could match her abilities.

Starting with issue #6 this March, Jennifer finds herself limping into a secret health clinic specializing in serving criminals. The head surgeon is surprised to find one of the most wanted women in the underground laying sedated on his operating table. But another experienced, yet terminally ill hitman has other plans for Blood. He’s written up a bucket list of all kinds of gangsters and crooks who have wronged him through the years. Jennifer Blood is the perfect accomplice in checking off the list, as this unlikely pair careen toward a final showdown in the city of sin, Las Vegas.

Vigilante comics cover artist icon Tim Bradstreet is jumping on to the series with this issue. His contributions to both the Punisher and previous Jennifer Blood comics are beloved by fans of the genre. He’s joined by Joseph Michael Linsner, cosplayer Rachel Hollon, and more.

So…once upon a time, a suburban housewife spent her nights as a mobster-murdering assassin, named JENNIFER BLOOD. Then she died…or did she? Because in the cozy cul-de-sacs of Bountiful, Utah, a noticeable number of normal people have gone missing. And by “normal,” we mean “mobsters under witness protection.” And by “missing,” we mean killed by someone that looks, sounds, and murders a lot like JENNIFER BLOOD…

Jennifer Blood Takes on a Whole Town of Mobsters!

Don’t live the rest of your life like a schnook! Jennifer Blood is back in her own series full of booze, bullets and big action!

Once upon a time, Jennifer Blood was just like any other suburban housewife – except that she took vengeance to the streets, cleaning up the criminals connected to her past. Now she’s dead, or so it seems. That nail in the coffin doesn’t seem so conclusive when suddenly people start dropping like flies in the quiet cul-de-sacs of the town of Bountiful, Utah. When Bountiful just so happens to be an undercover town completely full of mobsters, Blood’s possible return could start a whole war! Who will end up as the apex predator in this concentrated pond of criminality?

Writer Fred Van Lente tackles this new tale, following Jennifer’s guest appearance in the smash hit DIE!namite Lives. He’s joined by Italian artistic maestro Vincenzo Federici. The creative team has had fun researching and comparing notes to make sure the Italian slang of the mobsters strives for authenticity.

The neatly trimmed lawns and white picket fences of Bountiful are no less a facade than Jennifer Blood’s old secret identity. Behind each window is a grizzled, semi-retired mafioso, but when neighbors start dying, they turn to new character and legendary assassin Giulietta Romeo to hunt down the suspected killer. In this showdown of femme fatales, with wiseguys in the middle, will Jennifer Blood live to tell the tale?

Fellow Italian Lucio Parrillo delivers a stunning lead cover for the first issue. Rising star creators Lesley “Leirix” Li and Junggeun Yoon turn in gorgeous variants, showcasing Jennifer’s expansive arsenal. Dynamite fan-favorite Joseph Michael Linsner and cosplayer Rachel Hollon round out the treats for fans.

Jennifer Blood #1 will be out in October 2021.
