Official Press Release
Dynamite is proud to unveil Joe Madureira’s all-new, all-sexy, all-awesome cover for the debut of their upcoming Vampirella ongoing series (scheduled for a November release) by writer Eric Trautmann and art by Wagner Reis.
One of his first projects following his top-selling tour on The Ultimates 3 (with acclaimed writer Jeph Loeb) from Marvel, artist Joe Madureira is joining Dynamite Entertainment for THE FIRST TIME for the debut of their new Vampirella, and handling colors on his cover is none other than Aron Lusen! The fan-favorite artist, known for his work on Uncanny X-Men from Marvel and his highly acclaimed Battle Chasers series from Cliffhanger, will be joining a talented gallery of cover artists (Alex Ross, J. Scott Campbell, and Jelena Kevic-Djurdjevic) for the debut Dynamite’s premiere of Vampirella… the series comic fans can’t wait to sink their teeth into.
Dynamite Entertainment is pleased to introduce Vampirella to a new audience of readers, and she’s back and is hot on the trail of her greatest nemesis, Vlad Dracula. It’s a darker world for Vampirella, and something even more sinister than vampires lurks in the shadows, something that even Dracula fears! Vampirella #1 is written by Eric Trautmann (Action Comics co-written with Greg Rucka), illustrated by Wagner Reis and will arrive at comic shops this November.
