And so, all the gods of all the pantheons vowed: everyone with enough power to kill Purgatori is going to, well, kill Purgatori. No, seriously. Evil Ernie kills Purgatori. The Sacred Six kill Purgatori. Lilith kills Puragtori. Huh, that was quick. Guess it’s all over now…
OR IS IT? Obviously not. Someone somewhere would have a trick up her sleeves her outfit had sleeves. Also, for the first time ever: the eon place on Earth Purgatori has never been.

THE GODS HAVE PUT A PRICE ON PURGATORI’S HEAD!
Purgatori’s always pissing somebody off — but this time she may have gone too far! It may have some connection to her growing insanely powerful and probably starting to kill and eat the gods. In fact, that last part for sure. And gods are like potato chips, right? It’s not like she’s going to stop at one. And so, the various pantheons have pooled their not inconsiderable resources to offer up a big prize to whatever psycho manages to kill her. Who wants to try? Hey, who doesn’t?! The creative team behind Vampirella Vs. Purgatori and the recent Purgatori miniseries reunite for the grand third act of this Purgatori saga! Guest-starring Evil Ernie, Vampirella, the Sacred Six… and more!

Murderworld: Avengers #1

Arcade hosts his deadliest game yet in the Murderworld saga

On November 16, Jim Zub and Ray Fawkes put the “murder” back in MURDERWORLD! Teaming up with an exciting lineup of all-star artists, the two writers have penned a pulse-pounding epic that begins later this month in Murderworld: Avengers #1 and comes to a crashing end in March’s Murderworld: Game Over #1! Across five one-shots, readers will witness Arcade at his darkest as he unleashes the full terror of Murderworld on an all-new cast of characters.

Two hundred contestants. One hundred million dollar prize. One winner. And to survive, they’ll have to endure a series of brutal tests in Arcade’s brand-new Murderworld. Arcade’s circus-style contests have been a punchline in the past, but this game is no joke and the body count will rise with each twist and turn. Has Arcade finally found success? Enter Paul Pastor, the extraordinary young documentarian who hopes to expose it all but he can’t do it alone. Luckily, the Black Widow has a personal grudge to settle with the Murderworld mastermind – but how many will die before she can put a stop to this wildly violent scheme??

Zub and Fawkes murderous vision is being brought to pages by Jethro Morales, Farid Karami, Carlos Nieto, Luca Pizzari, Netho Diaz, and more. Each issue features covers by Paco Medina.

Step right up to the deadliest game in the Marvel Universe when Murderworld: Avengers #1 hits stands on November 16! 

Purgatori Must Die in a New Series!

Purgatori is always managing to piss somebody off. The ancient vampire-demoness has lived for thousands of years and accrued many enemies, mortal and beyond. But this time, she may have finally gone too far! Purgatori Must Die debuts this January.

Writer Ray Fawkes continues his chronicling of the character, following Vampirella vs. Purgatori and Purgatori. He’s reunited with artist Alvaro Sarraseca, alongside colorist Salvatore Aiala, and letterer Tom Napolitano.

Recently Purgatori’s control of her own mind and restraint with her power has been slipping. Not only does she suck the blood of her victims, she also absorbs not only any abilities they may have, but also fragments of their memories and personalities. Her patchwork mind has become more and more tangled through the years, and she’s recently embraced this twisted curse. Her latest victims? Gods. Who don’t take too kindly to being hunted and eaten.

The various pantheons have pooled their collective resources to offer up one historic, humongous bounty for the head of Purgatori, no matter which psycho takes it off her. Who would turn this challenge down? This thrilling third act of the Purgatori saga brings together a who’s who of Purgatori’s nemeses and erstwhile allies from across the Chaos! and Dynamite mythos. Fans can look for Vampirella, Evil Ernie, the Sacred Six, and plenty more to crash the party in what is sure to be an action-packed showdown.

To celebrate this climactic crossover spotlight on Purgatori, Dynamite and editor Matt Idelson have pulled together a hunting party of top talents for covers. Collette Turner brings her stunning take on these powerful female characters over from Vampirella: Year One to another legendary vampire. Joseph Michael Linsner‘s sensual portrayals are always beloved by fans. Then two Purgatori regular artists contribute, with Antonio Fuso and Alvaro Sarraseca.
