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.
