Dynamite Does Homage Covers to Rob Liefeld in September

This September Dynamite and artist Brent Peeples show respect to one of the industry’s most influential figures with a 5-piece set of variant covers homaging Rob Liefeld‘s famous covers!

Artist Brent Peeples brings maximum effort to these covers that mirror some of the most recognizable covers of all time. Brent and Rob have worked together on the smash-hit Major X and other projects together, so there is respect and admiration in these pieces.

All six of these covers grace Dynamite’s top titles. The Princess of Mars has green martians in her sights, as Dejah Thoris #8 calls back to New Mutants #87Rob’s second issue on the title. Arguably even more iconic is the 98th issue of that series, which Killing Red Sonja #5‘s cast stepping in for a merc with a mouth. Bettie Page #3 reenacts the pivotal next issue that moved toward a huge shift in Liefeld’s career and the industry as a whole. Vampirella/Red Sonja #11 places those two Women of Dynamite into the iconic image of X-Force #1. The blockbuster second and third issues of that record-breaking series are spotlighted with Red Sonja #19 and Vampirella #14.

Dynamite Announces a New Packed Release Schedule for July 1

As summer approaches, Dynamite is heating up as the comic industry roars back with its comeback, and is delivering a scorching haul to fans and retailers for July 1st!

To charge up an otherwise slow week of comics releases, Dynamite is bringing its big guns to brighten up the excitement around returning stories and supporting comic shops. Five of the bestselling and best-reviewed titles will all be out the same week.

The issues are:

  • The Boys: Dear Becky #2
  • Vampirella #10
  • Vengeance of Vampirella #8
  • Red Sonja #16
  • Killing Red Sonja #2

As the second season on Prime is set for an official release date any day now, now is the perfect time for fans to dive into the long-awaited sequel to The Boys with the second issue of Dear Becky. Co-creators Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson return with artist Russ Braun, colorist Tony Aviña, and letterer Simon Bowland. The classic creative team is all back years after they concluded the original juggernaut run and they haven’t missed a step.

Dear Becky

Meanwhile, in Vampirella Christoper Priest‘s intricate saga reaches a climax, as Vampirella falls to her lowest point. Still recovering from a traumatic plane crash and turbulent personal life, she turns to others for help – and one may be the mastermind who has been manipulating all the events to date… With stunning covers from Lucio Parrillo, Guillem March, Fay Dalton, Meghan Hetrick, interior artist Ergün Gündüz, and more, this is an issue not to miss.

In the flagship of the other big Woman of Dynamite, Eisner-nominated scribe Mark Russell continues to spin one of the most acclaimed series in the industry in Red Sonja. Exploring concepts like power, war, and leadership, it has only gotten more enticing moving into its second year with the big war won. What happens next for Sonja the Red?

Across that first year of Russell’s Red Sonja, the titular character lead the rag-tag Hyrkanians against a despotic king. With Red Sonja slaying Dragan the Magnificent in a climactic battle, his surviving son Prince Cyril has vowed revenge on the fiery-haired killer. Alongside co-writer Bryce Ingman and fan-favorite artist Craig Rousseau, Mark Russell chronicles that quest in Killing Red Sonja. Spiced with magic, humor, and more, it’s an indisposable companion to the main series.

Fans looking for a straight shot of classic comic book storytelling with modern sensibilities know that Vengeance of Vampirella is a true hit. Or they better get on it fast! The multitalented Tom Sniegoski, who has written everything from the Punisher, Hellboy, Bone, and dozens of novels, returns to the character he defined for an entire decade. Picking right up where he left off in the 1990s, but incorporating the 25-year absence, this book is comfort food for every longtime fan of the Daughter of Drakulon, and also perfectly approachable for all newcomers.
