Tony Fleecs and Trish Forstner Brings Stray Dogs to Dynamite Variants

We’ve seen crossovers from publishers when it comes to comics but have we seen one that’s just variant covers Dynamite has revealed that artists Tony Fleecs and Trish Forstner will create a trio of exciting covers matching Dynamite’s biggest characters with dogs! The covers will be found on Red Sonja #2Army of Darkness: 1979 #2, and Vampirella #25. The dogs are a riff on the duo’s popular series Stray Dogs published through Image Comics.

Stray Dogs has been a huge hit, with the first issue going up to a whopping five printings to meet demand from retailers and a rabid fanbase. Now they’re bringing that energy to Dynamite’s hits.

Part of the fun of Stray Dogs has been many of the variants paying homage to classic horror films, as it bills itself as a unique take on Lady and the Tramp meets Silence of the Lambs. Or the alternate comparison of The Secret Life of Pets meets Seven, as coined by Brian Michael Bendis. That inventive crossover style and Fleecs’ and Forstner’s beloved artistic portrayal of man’s best friend lead to a left field, but brilliant idea.

Stray Dogs meets the Dynamite Universe in an exciting totally unofficial crossover!

Vampirella’s Wedding Gets Even Bigger with Extra Pages!

Vampirella is getting married to Dracula, and the wedding of the century can hardly be contained to one comic book! Dynamite announces that the history-making Vampirella #25 is expanding with extra pages to properly portray this momentous occasion.

As Christopher Priest nears his ultimate climax of his celebrated run on Vampirella, his ambitious tale needed just a little extra space. With no intention of impeding his groundbreaking narrative, Dynamite is bulking up the final issue of the current series. Vampirella #25 will now be 40 pages, rather than 32. With every single extra page being devoted to the story, up from 20 to 28 pages.

Best of all, this change will not be reflected in any change of price for fans or retailers who have supported the book over the years or are interested in checking it out for this huge event that will set up several exciting developments to come.

Save the date! Vampirella #25 is in stores October 20th and Vampirella will be getting married – not a fake out, a dream, or an imaginary story. Beyond the hearty page count, the celebration is also marked by an all-star squad of top cover artists including Rose Besch, Lucio Parrillo, Zoe Lacchei, Shannon Maer, InHyuk Lee, and more.

Dynamite Does Homage Covers to Rob Liefeld in September

This September Dynamite and artist Brent Peeples show respect to one of the industry’s most influential figures with a 5-piece set of variant covers homaging Rob Liefeld‘s famous covers!

Artist Brent Peeples brings maximum effort to these covers that mirror some of the most recognizable covers of all time. Brent and Rob have worked together on the smash-hit Major X and other projects together, so there is respect and admiration in these pieces.

All six of these covers grace Dynamite’s top titles. The Princess of Mars has green martians in her sights, as Dejah Thoris #8 calls back to New Mutants #87Rob’s second issue on the title. Arguably even more iconic is the 98th issue of that series, which Killing Red Sonja #5‘s cast stepping in for a merc with a mouth. Bettie Page #3 reenacts the pivotal next issue that moved toward a huge shift in Liefeld’s career and the industry as a whole. Vampirella/Red Sonja #11 places those two Women of Dynamite into the iconic image of X-Force #1. The blockbuster second and third issues of that record-breaking series are spotlighted with Red Sonja #19 and Vampirella #14.

Dynamite Celebrates Independence Day with 3 Special Variants

This summer season, Dynamite is bringing the heat with a trio of collectible variant covers celebrating July 4th and American Independence. A diverse international set of creators pay tribute to the American-born medium and characters they love.

Joined by a fun background of apple pies, Bettie Page is herself an American icon of that caliber. Her work in pinup art and as a symbol of beauty and feminity has influenced countless artists within her home nation and around the world. Italian Vincenzo Federici, interior artist for the title, pencils, inks, and colors this fun and flirty cover for the second issue of Karla Pacheco‘s upcoming yarn.

Bettie Page #2 variant

Fellow Italian Alessandro Miracolo portrays the She-Devil With a Sword celebrating the holiday in the shadow of the Washington Monument and dangerously standing atop a stack of fireworks with blade and flag in hand. Don’t try this at home, kids. Irish colorist and series regular Ellie Wright makes sure the red, white and blue pop. It can be argued that the Hyrkanian heroine’s backstory is firmly tied to America, with her creation by Robert E. Howard in stories originally serialized in pulp magazines native to the States. Then expanded by Roy Thomas, who was a student of history and followed in the footsteps of comic and pulp innovators before him. Though always with an international flair, with renowned artists such as Esteban Maroto, Lucio Parrillo, Carlos Gomez, and more.

Red Sonja #18 variant

American artist Justin Mason has Vampirella in an even more dangerous position, straddling a giant explosive with lit sparklers. Though the sweet Uncle Sam style hat makes up for that and we’ll pretend she’s following proper safety precautions. The colors by Kike J. Diaz really bring the background fireworks to life. Similar to Sonja, the Daughter of Drakulon’s creation has a bit of American flavor. James Warren’s black and white magazines were able to dodge the censorship that plagued the comics industry for years. Do you think Drakulon has an independence day?

To charge up an otherwise slow week of comics releases, Dynamite is bringing its big guns to brighten up the excitement around returning stories and supporting comic shops. Five of the bestselling and best-reviewed titles will all be out the same week.

The issues are:

  • The Boys: Dear Becky #2
  • Vampirella #10
  • Vengeance of Vampirella #8

Co-creators Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson return with artist Russ Braun, colorist Tony Aviña, and letterer Simon Bowland. The classic creative team is all back years after they concluded the original juggernaut run and they haven’t missed a step.

Dear Becky

Meanwhile, in Vampirella Christoper Priest‘s intricate saga reaches a climax, as Vampirella falls to her lowest point. Still recovering from a traumatic plane crash and turbulent personal life, she turns to others for help – and one may be the mastermind who has been manipulating all the events to date… With stunning covers from Lucio Parrillo, Guillem March, Fay Dalton, Meghan Hetrick, interior artist Ergün Gündüz, and more, this is an issue not to miss.

In the flagship of the other big Woman of Dynamite, Eisner-nominated scribe Mark Russell continues to spin one of the most acclaimed series in the industry in Red Sonja. Exploring concepts like power, war, and leadership, it has only gotten more enticing moving into its second year with the big war won. What happens next for Sonja the Red?

Across that first year of Russell’s Red Sonja, the titular character lead the rag-tag Hyrkanians against a despotic king. With Red Sonja slaying Dragan the Magnificent in a climactic battle, his surviving son Prince Cyril has vowed revenge on the fiery-haired killer. Alongside co-writer Bryce Ingman and fan-favorite artist Craig Rousseau, Mark Russell chronicles that quest in Killing Red Sonja. Spiced with magic, humor, and more, it’s an indisposable companion to the main series.

Fans looking for a straight shot of classic comic book storytelling with modern sensibilities know that Vengeance of Vampirella is a true hit. Or they better get on it fast! The multitalented Tom Sniegoski, who has written everything from the Punisher, Hellboy, Bone, and dozens of novels, returns to the character he defined for an entire decade. Picking right up where he left off in the 1990s, but incorporating the 25-year absence, this book is comfort food for every longtime fan of the Daughter of Drakulon, and also perfectly approachable for all newcomers.
