Vampirella and Red Sonja Celebrate Valentine’s Day With Specials

Though it seems far away, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. In 2022, Vampirella and Red Sonja are observing the occasion in their own special one-shot titles. A range of talented creators, including breakout cover artist Sozomaika, are set to tell lovestruck and romantic tales of two of Dynamite’s biggest stars. Each Valentine’s Special features a stunning Sozomaika take on the two powerful and beautiful heroines. Superstar Lesley “Leirix” Li also contributes a cover to each, and model Rachel Hollon swaps her outfit for the pair of cosplay covers.

Rising writer Chuck Brown, of the Eisner-nominated hit Bitter Root, leads the charge on Red Sonja’s romantic escapades. In a magical land far from Hyrkania, she’s temporarily developed supernatural abilities to manipulate fire. In “Burning Love,” she must venture into this land where powerful warlords possess ice powers, and one among them has literally exchanged their heart and soul for power. Can Sonja take down this formidable force?

Love is no easy emotion and drive to navigate as a mere mortal. Let alone as a superpowered, alien, vampire woman such as Vampirella of Drakulon. Fans will join writer and colorist Dearbhla Kelly, among others, this February for a trek through love, hate, and their complicated combinations, in Vampi’s Valentine’s Special.

The Vampirella Valentine’s Special 2022 and Red Sonja Valentin’s Special 2022 are slated for release in February 2022.

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…

Mirka Andolfo’s Red Sonja #1 Goes Back to Press

Following the news of Red Sonja #1 being completely sold out at the distributor level, Dynamite has announced a second printing of the smash hit issue by Mirka Andolfo!

Rushing back to press to meet demand, Red Sonja #1 Second Printing (Diamond code: JUL218026) will feature on Final Order Cutoff the weekend of September 13. Right alongside the second issue’s final orders, then the two will conveniently release together October 6.

Due to the tight timeline and limited paper available, the second print will not have a new cover, and is limited to 2,000 copies. However, the new printing features a cool blue logo treatment to differentiate it from the first printing. This rewards fans for being early adopters, as well as makes it a fun variant for new readers and collectors to add to their run.

Retailers and fans will be excited to learn that Red Sonja #2 also features some exciting variants available this weekend at FOC. Two new covers have been added, and are fully “open order” for retailers, requiring no order thresholds. Logo-free “virgin” editions and more are available as incentives.

Captivating cartoonist Tony Fleecs lends a hand for a Red Sonja cover like no other. Singaporean superstar Lesley “Leirix” Li also turns in another stunner, quickly becoming a Dynamite fan-favorite.

The second issue by writers Mirka Andolfo and Luca Blengino, artist Giuseppe Cafaro, colorist Chiara Di Francia, and letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou ramps up the “Mother” arc Sonja injured and relying more on her new companion Sitha – first appearing in issue #1. As their bond grows and they learn more about each other’s pasts, their journey becomes all the more dangerous.

Red Sonja #1 Second Printing and Red Sonja #2 are both on FOC September 13 for an in stores release of October 6. Retailers and readers can place their final orders for these books and all their exciting covers.

Sheena Queen of the Jungle Swings Into New Series!

The Queen of the Jungle is swinging back into comics this fall in a brand new series! One of comics’ most historic heroines returns in a bold new take by writer Stephen Mooney that seeks to answer the question – in a very different kind of jungle, the urban one – is Sheena still queen? Mooney is reunited with his Bettie Page collaborator Jethro Morales, as they’ve honed their chemistry together alongside colorist Dinei Ribero.

In a tale evoking such action-packed and incisive films as Jurassic Park, Predator, and The Hunger Games, Sheena is drafted by a conglomerate eager to rehabilitate its image with a haven for endangered flora and fauna in a state-of-the-art combination research center and destination resort — the Bio-Dome!. But on the eve of the grand opening, all communication with staff and the first lucky park visitors has broken off. Inside and outside of the Bio-Dome, Sheena faces obstacles both new and old, including deceit, manipulation, and a deadly creature like nothing she has ever encountered. What she discovers will change her entire world — and her place in it.

That lasting legacy is celebrated with a diverse range of artists contributing to the series beyond the core creative team. Readers and collectors can enjoy covers by Lucio Parrillo, Rose Besch, Arthur Suydam, Joseph Michael Linsner, Carla Cohen, Stephen Mooney, Lesley “Leirix” Li, and even cosplay by Rachel Hollon.

Sheena Queen of the Jungle #1 is slated for release in November 2021

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.
