So…once upon a time, a suburban housewife spent her nights as a mobster-murdering assassin, named JENNIFER BLOOD. Then she died…or did she? Because in the cozy cul-de-sacs of Bountiful, Utah, a noticeable number of normal people have gone missing. And by “normal,” we mean “mobsters under witness protection.” And by “missing,” we mean killed by someone that looks, sounds, and murders a lot like JENNIFER BLOOD…
By FRED VAN LENTE (Wolverine) and VINCENZO FEDERICI (Red Sonja)!

Don’t live the rest of your life like a schnook! Jennifer Blood is back in her own series full of booze, bullets and big action!
Once upon a time, Jennifer Blood was just like any other suburban housewife – except that she took vengeance to the streets, cleaning up the criminals connected to her past. Now she’s dead, or so it seems. That nail in the coffin doesn’t seem so conclusive when suddenly people start dropping like flies in the quiet cul-de-sacs of the town of Bountiful, Utah. When Bountiful just so happens to be an undercover town completely full of mobsters, Blood’s possible return could start a whole war! Who will end up as the apex predator in this concentrated pond of criminality?
Writer Fred Van Lente tackles this new tale, following Jennifer’s guest appearance in the smash hit DIE!namite Lives. He’s joined by Italian artistic maestro Vincenzo Federici. The creative team has had fun researching and comparing notes to make sure the Italian slang of the mobsters strives for authenticity.
The neatly trimmed lawns and white picket fences of Bountiful are no less a facade than Jennifer Blood’s old secret identity. Behind each window is a grizzled, semi-retired mafioso, but when neighbors start dying, they turn to new character and legendary assassin Giulietta Romeo to hunt down the suspected killer. In this showdown of femme fatales, with wiseguys in the middle, will Jennifer Blood live to tell the tale?
Fellow Italian Lucio Parrillo delivers a stunning lead cover for the first issue. Rising star creators Lesley “Leirix” Li and Junggeun Yoon turn in gorgeous variants, showcasing Jennifer’s expansive arsenal. Dynamite fan-favorite Joseph Michael Linsner and cosplayer Rachel Hollon round out the treats for fans.

Sabrina sets off on her own to unravel both the secrets behind Radka and Ren’s transformations and the mystery of an apparent supernatural serial killer plaguing Greendale, she finds her two mysteries may in fact be connected… and she doesn’t like the answers. Feeling like she has nowhere to turn, Sabrina finds herself confiding in Ren and further complicating her already messy love triangle of a life.
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.
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.
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?
Bettie Page is back and better than ever, with a new alternate history twist making her a true Hollywood star in the making – and suspect to a murder!
Writer Karla Pacheco brings her kickass skill and sensibilities to another iconic babe, building up a new yarn for Bettie that’s part pulp noir, part pin-up, stylized yet realistic. She’s joined by Italian artist Vincenzo Federici, who’s drawn the “Dark Angel” before. Rounding out the team are colorist Rebecca Nalty and letterer Becca Carey.
In this series, Bettie has moved from New York to Hollywood sometime around 1954. She’s transitioned into more minor acting working, with theater success and bit parts in B-movies. Though she’s still challenged navigating the sticky swamp of producers, perps, pumps, and pushers who call La La Land home and want a piece of the pie – and Bettie. The question is – does Bettie Page find trouble, or does trouble find her? Signing on for a supporting role in a “tastefully sensual” fantasy film set on an idyllic tropical island, she’s wrapped up in a new environment and colorful cast of characters. Until someone is murdered and a massive storm hits!
For such an iconic woman, a crop of all-star artists are contributing covers! Junggeun Yoon leads the pack, joined by Kano and of course the legendary Joseph Michael Linsner. Riki Le Cotey marks a first with a cosplay cover. The real-life Bettie herself is featured on two photo cover variants, one nice and one naughty. Plus a slick homage to Frank Miller from Stephen Mooney.
