In July 1969, the world was first introduced to Vampirella. 50 years later, she doesn’t look a day older!!!! Now, to celebrate her gold anniversary, Dynamite is launching a brand-new, ongoing series featuring the talents of Christopher Priest (Black Panther, Deathstroke, Quantum & Woody, Justice League) and European star/American star-in-the-making, Ergün Gündüz (Tales of the Great War, Taxi Tales)! You’ll experience the first, mysterious taste of things to come in Vampirella Free Comic Book Day #0, and the story continues here!!!
It’s new comic book day tomorrow! What’s everyone excited for? What do you plan on getting? Sound off in the comments below! While you think about that, here’s some comic news and reviews from around the web in our morning roundup.
Vampirella is flying high for her big 50th anniversary! Dynamite has announced that the upcoming Vampirella #1 has blasted through expectations and is a massive success with an initial print run of over 130,000 copies! The issue is by writer Christopher Priest, artist Ergün Gündüz and a range of top tier cover artists fronted by Frank Cho.
This historic number includes all orders through Diamond, specialty retailers, and creator exclusive covers. This incredible sales number is the highest for a full price comic in Dynamite’s storied 15-year history. Furthermore, 130 thousand copies is higher than all recorded paid circulation numbers for the original Vampirella magazine – making this possibly also the best selling Vampirella comic book of all time!
Dynamite is confident in this blockbuster new series and made the first issue returnable for retailers, which is also continuing for the second issue to allow retailers to order aggressively with minimal risk and maximum reward. Retailers can order without worry and be prepared to serve the needs of Vampirella diehards who go back 50 years themselves as well as the growing crowd of new fans!
Dynamite’s team is already working hard to continue this success through the year and moving forward. Vampirella #2 features an eye-popping main cover from Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, perhaps the biggest artist in the industry today. Then the next issue is spearheaded by the iconic J. Scott Campbell. Each issue features additional covers from talented artists as well as top cosplay models.
Initial orders for Vampirella #2 are due this Thursday June 27.
As 2019 rolls on with Vampirella’s 50th Gold Anniversary, Dynamite gives fans even more reason to celebrate! A blockbuster new ongoing series written by Christopher Priest, another ongoing featuring Vampirella with Red Sonja by Jordie Bellaire, reprints and collections of new and classic stories, statues, posters and more! The perfect item to continue this cavalcade is enamel pins! The fast selling Vampirella Tarot Deck was only the beginning!
Following the success of Dynamite’s first tarot set, Vampirella fans can now display their twin passions for Vampi and tarot with this premium set of enamel pins. One incredible image was selected from each of the five suits (Trump, Cups, Swords, Pentacles and Wands) and reproduced for these 1.5″ diameter pins. The perfect addition to fans’ growing collections of Dynamite enamel pins!
The Vampirella Premium Tarot Enamel Pin Setis slated for release in October 2019.

CONTAINS: ISSUES 1-5 + BONUS CONTENT!
The encounter that was destined to happen! When an alien scout ship crashes on Mars, Dejah Thoris must risk reigniting war with the Green Martians and becoming dinner for the white apes. But the stakes are raised so much higher when the ship is revealed to carry Vampirella, who is on a desperate mission of survival-one that might end before it truly begins!
Dynamite‘s two flagship heroines are teaming up in a new ongoing series starting in September in Vampirella/Red Sonja, written by the multitalented and Eisner-winning Jordie Bellaire with art by Drew Moss.
The story starts in 1969, the genesis of Vampirella – timed perfectly with her 50th Anniversary now being celebrated in 2019. Vampi’s new to Earth and still adapting to our world. She finds herself attracted to the supernatural and paranormal mysteries of the world. When suddenly she runs across a young Red Sonja, plucked out of time and clueless. The two women set forth on an adventure, collaborating as both detectives and warriors to find out what has happened… only for more space-time shenanigans to befall them! Do not expect any cliché misunderstanding fights, these two Women of Dynamite are working together, no holds barred.
Joining Bellaire and Moss are Rebecca Nalty on colors and Becca Carey on letters. The first issue will feature a range of talented cover artists. Terry and Rachel Dodson lead the pack. Julian Totino Tedesco contributes a fun cover. Babs Tarr joins the crew. Jordie herself will color fan-favorite artist Leonardo Romero‘s piece. While interior artist Drew Moss will be doing “Then and Now” covers, depicting his modern style superimposed alongside classic art of the characters such as by Frank Frazetta. Watch out for covers from other huge names on future issues, as creators jump at the opportunity to draw these two characters side by side.
Vampirella/Red Sonja #1 is slated for release in September 2019.
Vampirella is back in all her glory! The heroine returns to an ongoing series to debut on her 50th Gold Anniversary in July 2019! Written by the one and only Christopher Priest, with art by Ergün Gündüz and a legion of jaw dropping covers by Frank Cho, Alex Ross, Guillem March, Joe Jusko, Adam Hughes and more! Fans are clearly excited because initial numbers are indicating the debut will be an extraordinary success for Dynamite!
Current orders project a print run in excess of 60,000 right out the gate! Making it not only the most successful Vampirella comic of the modern era, but also one of the top books for July, with the #1 issue in stores on July 17th – the 50th Anniversary of Vampirella herself!
Dynamite can also confirm that writer Christopher Priest will be on the title for a full year and counting. Alongside the rest of his creative team, the Eisner-nominated auteur is brewing a legendary run in the making. Balancing his trademark serious take on superhero/genre concepts with a deep respect for the character and her history.
Vampirella’s success will continue through 2019, especially once everyone gets the chance to bite into the full first issue. Sensational cover artist Stanley “Artgerm” Lau contributes the primary cover to the second issue, followed by the iconic J. Scott Campbell on #3, and continued cosplay covers from top models and influencers. Even more stunning and surprising covers await fans and collectors, including the final professional work of a legend, to be announced… While the fall will bring additional comics and merchandise that will appeal to longtime diehards and the wave of new Vampi fans.
