Jordie Bellaire Writes Vampirella and Red Sonja a New Ongoing Series!

Dynamite‘s two flagship heroines are teaming up in a new ongoing series starting in September in Vampirella/Red Sonja, written by the multitalented and Eisner-winning Jordie Bellaire with art by Drew Moss.

The story starts in 1969, the genesis of Vampirella – timed perfectly with her 50th Anniversary now being celebrated in 2019. Vampi’s new to Earth and still adapting to our world. She finds herself attracted to the supernatural and paranormal mysteries of the world. When suddenly she runs across a young Red Sonja, plucked out of time and clueless. The two women set forth on an adventure, collaborating as both detectives and warriors to find out what has happened… only for more space-time shenanigans to befall them! Do not expect any cliché misunderstanding fights, these two Women of Dynamite are working together, no holds barred.

Joining Bellaire and Moss are Rebecca Nalty on colors and Becca Carey on letters. The first issue will feature a range of talented cover artists. Terry and Rachel Dodson lead the pack. Julian Totino Tedesco contributes a fun cover. Babs Tarr joins the crew. Jordie herself will color fan-favorite artist Leonardo Romero‘s piece. While interior artist Drew Moss will be doing “Then and Now” covers, depicting his modern style superimposed alongside classic art of the characters such as by Frank Frazetta. Watch out for covers from other huge names on future issues, as creators jump at the opportunity to draw these two characters side by side. 

Vampirella/Red Sonja #1 is slated for release in September 2019.

Review: Shuri Vol. 1 The Search for the Black Panther

Shuri #1

Anyone who has seen the movie Black Panther can’t deny just how important and excellent the movie was. It was a watershed moment. It became the first time since Blade, that comic book fans got a serious film adaptation of a black superhero.  It was also the first time in Marvel Studios history, where it had a primarily black cast. The centerpiece of the story involved a black protagonist and black antagonist. Another important part of the movie is that it didn’t involve until after the end credits any of the other major characters from the MCU to tell its story.

The fact that the movie’s plot was so self-contained is part of what made the movie so good and so unique. One of the best parts of the movie, was the introduction of Shuri, T’Challa’s sister, Princess of Wakanda and possibly the smartest character in the Marvel Universe. As comic book fans know that the character has donned the Black Panther in Deadliest Of The Species, but has not been seen since that epic series. Thanks to the movie, comic book, and movie fans, get to witness her return in Shuri; The Search for Black Panther as she faces the crisis of holding Wakanda together without the Black Panther.

We catch-up with Shuri, as we find out how she beat back Thanos Black Order, as she gained knowledge from her ancestors during her trip to the Djala, a journey which has made her stronger and wiser. As T’Challa leaves for Wakanda’s first space mission, the sovereign duties fall to the Wakandan princess, a role she is not completely sure she can do. Unfortunately, T’Challa, goes missing and a clandestine council takes it upon themselves to ask Shuri to step up and become the Black Panther. A role she is reluctant to take up, as Storm comes to help her, she tries some alternative methods to find him, which leads her to astral project her conscience into Groot. T’Challa’s absence has also caught the attention of “Africa Forever” a collective that represents the communication between Wakanda and the rest of Africa, as an expanding black hole opens up in Timbuktu, which brings Tony Stark to Africa. By book’s end, Shuri has averted trouble, stopped a local villain and finally is ready to become the Black Panther.

Overall, an engaging reintroduction to the character, as this version offers readers a more comprehensive look at one of the Marvel Universe’s most interesting characters. The story by Nnedi Okorafor is enigmatic, complex, and compelling. The art by Leonardo Romero and Jordie Bellaire is alluring and vivid. Altogether, an exciting book which will gain this character, more fans.
