A team-up set up by SWORDS OF SORROW’s Gail Simone, featuring the writer that she hand-picked: Nancy A. Collins! Now that the threat of the Pacifica Slasher/Anaheim Ripper has been handled, Vampirella must figure out how to survive in a world without monsters—including where to find her next meal. Meanwhile, Jennifer Blood turns her attention to Los Muertos, a deadly narco gang with a fondness for turning the faces of those who cross them into sporting goods. However, her plans for the gang’s leaders are derailed by yet another Jennifer Blood copycat—one who bears a disturbing resemblance to a certain voluptuous vampire.

The Women Take Over for Swords of Sorrow

Dynamite Entertainment has announced the May 2015 launch of Swords of Sorrow, the genre-spanning crossover event featuring an all-star line-up of female authors, headlined by Gail Simone.  Debuting with a core Swords of Sorrow series by Simone, the crossover continues throughout May with tie-in titles including the Swords of Sorrow: Vampirella / Jennifer Blood miniseries written by Nancy A. Collins; the Swords of Sorrow: Chaos special by Mairghread Scott; and the Swords of Sorrow: Masquerade / Kato special by G. Willow Wilson and Erica Schultz. Subsequent months will debut related projects by additional female authors, including Leah Moore, Marguerite Bennett, Emma Beeby, and Mikki Kendall. The crossover event brings together Dynamite’s wide roster of female characters, including the iconic Red Sonja, Dejah Thoris (of the popular Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Warlord of Mars franchise), and Vampirella.

Simone’s core Swords of Sorrow story serves as the starting point for a new universe of pulp adventure. Illustrated by Sergio Davila, the series features the supernatural heroine Vampirella, Martian princess Dejah Thoris, crimson-tressed swordswoman Red Sonja, martial artist Kato (from filmmaker Kevin Smith’s reboot of The Green Hornet), primal warrior Jungle Girl, and many more. Drawn from a dozen worlds and eras to face off against a legendary evil that threatens their homelands, Dynamite’s fiercest females must overcome their differences to harness the power of mystical blades — the eponymous Swords of Sorrow — in final conflict.

Swords of Sorrow #1 features a variety of cover editions, including a Main cover by industry superstar J. Scott Campbell; variants by Jenny Frison, Emanuela Lupacchino; a subscription edition by Robert Hack available to fans placing preorders with their local retailers; and incentive editions by Joyce Chin, Tula Lotay, Nei Ruffino, Cedric Poulat.  Swords of Sorrow: Vampirella / Jennifer Blood #1 and the Swords of Sorrow: Masquerade / Kato special both feature covers by Billy Tan, while the Swords of Sorrow: Chaos special spotlights Joyce Chin.
