Official Press Release
Dark Horse proudly announces a vinyl rendition of Roman Dirge’s Lenore that would make Poe proud!
The Cute Little Dead Girl gets BIG in 2008 when Dark Horse Deluxe releases an 8″ vinyl figure that will surely melt little black hearts everywhere. Lenore is the brainchild of artist/magician/Eisner-nominated comics creator Roman Dirge. Named after a sonnet to a dead girl by literary luminary Edgar Allan Poe, Lenore has been celebrated as the “it’ girl for the doom generation since just before the turn of the new millennium. She has been featured in her own best-selling comics and graphic novel series (Slave Labor Graphics), and a line of merchandise, including a Zippo lighter, PVC set, journal, and stationery set all by Dark Horse Deluxe. Dark Horse is planning to release a second Lenore PVC set in spring of 2008.
“I think this is the best Lenore toy ever!” Roman Dirge remarked as the prototype was displayed for the first time at the recent Comic-Con International in San Diego; “I really like it!”
The Lenore vinyl figure and the new Lenore PVC set will be spreading their dark cheer in retail establishments starting February 6, 2008-just in time for Valentine’s Day! Lenore comes in a full color window box with a retail price of just $24.99. The PVC set will retail for $19.99, and will feature Lenore in her bunny suit, Taxidermy, and Spam Witch!
