sacredsix Expands Christopher Priest’s Vampirella Universe!

Discover sacredsix, a new ongoing series this May as Christopher Priest expands his take on the wider Vampirella universe.

Enter: a tale of two towns in rural Georgia. One is Ashthorne, an impoverished farming town with a deadly secret. Otherwise known as “Vampire Valley,” most of its citizens are vampires and sundry other ghouls, though not by choice or blood. These once-human victims are now shunned by society in the open but live peacefully and just want to be left alone to live their lives in peace. Meanwhile, the bright and shiny Sacred is a recently “manufactured” community lorded over by staunch conservatives for the express purpose of oppressing and ultimately destroying Ashthorne’s residents. This tension will escalate as the series progresses, and instigate the arrival of the group of heroines…

Priest’s new take on the Draculina character, real name Victory, is joined by fellow Vampi vixens Pantha, Nyx, and the surprise inclusion of fellow conflicted vampire Chastity, of Chaos! fame. Led by Lilith of Drakulon, the Cersei Lannister of space vampires and recruited by her son DRAGO, mayor of Ashthorne. The sixth and final core member will be a surprise… The one and only Vampirella will make some appearances as well. These women will go undercover in the exclusive rarified air of Sacred as students and fight against injustice by night against The Six.

In a thematic mashup of True Blood and Sons of Anarchy, sacredsix is a multifaceted morality play and tale of two cities examining the conflict between human and inhuman, science and magic, agnosticism and faith, war and peace. Good and evil can be found all around, often coexisting. With this cast of complex characters with ever-shifting allegiances, anything can happen.

Christopher Priest is joined by artist Gabriel Ibarra, colorist Mohan and letters from longtime Priest collaborator Willie Schubert.

Jae Lee will be doing interior pages for this series across the first five issues – a special sequence weaved into the main story recounting Pantha’s newly revamped origin story. Pantha is now fully feline by default and can transform into a human woman, rather than vice versa.

A Who’s Who of top cover artists are tagging in for the big debut issue and subsequent ones. Jae Lee leads the pack. One of the hottest cover artists today, Lucio Parrillo, focuses on Chastity, Draculina and Nyx. With fans skyrocketing her career and garnering acclaim for her Vampirella covers, Meghan Hetrick is a natural addition. Rod Reis captures the power and sensuality of these women with a rooftop lineup. While the incredibly talented and versatile José Ladrönn chips in. An incentive cover from Joseph Michael Linsner showcases the women in schoolgirl outfits, and an Icon Incentive remasters definitive Pantha artist Mark Texeira’s cover from Vampirella (2001) #8.

Review: A Million Ways to Die Hard

A Million Ways to Die Hard

As a child who grew up in the 1980s, I often watched television as a means of escape. I would have my Saturday morning cartoons,which provided me, my sister, and my cousins enough fodder to keep us entertained. As I grew older my interest became more grown-up, eventually watching some of the same shows that my parents did. One of those shows was Moonlighting, which was about a private detective agency which solved some interesting cases and starred a then unknown Bruce Willis.

The show was probably one of the most entertaining shows I’ve ever watched and it doubled down on the “opposites attract” plot device that has permeated in so many tv shows. I , like many people never took Willis seriously. That changed when I watched him as John McClane in Die Hard. The movie made him a star and introduced a character which would become iconic. As the movie hits a major milestone, Frank Tieri and Mark Texeira, give us a new story with A Million Ways to Die Hard.

We are taken back to Nakatomi Plaza, 30 years after the fateful events of that first movie for a commemoration of that night and of the re-dedication of the building. Our hero is noticeably absent.  His absence is short lived, as a masked terrorist has taken over the building, promising to kill hostages, giving McClane no choice but to spring into action.

Overall, the graphic novel is a serviceable story which continues the series. It’s one which could be a little longer and could use stronger story development. The story by Tieri is action packed and funny but at times tries too hard to be both. The art by Texeira and Adrian Crossa is rich and elegant. Altogether, it’s a story very much in the spirit of the original but ultimately falls short of what it could have been.

Story: Frank Tieri Art: Mark Texeira and Adrian Crossa
Story: 6.0 Art: 8.0 Overall: 7.5 Recommendation: Read
