 SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON ANNOUNCEMENT:
SHOUT! FACTORY ADAPTS RED SONJA: QUEEN OF PLAGUES
TO FULL-LENGTH MOTION COMIC FILM

The Acclaimed Comic Book Storyline by Gail Simone & Walter Geovani
Makes its Animated Debut on Blu-Ray and DVD on August 2, 2016



July 22, 2016, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite Entertainment and Red Sonja, LLC, are proud to announce that leading multi-platform entertainment company Shout! Factory has adapted the critically acclaimed Red Sonja: Queen of Plagues storyline written by Gail Simone (Batgirl, Secret Six) and illustrated by Walter Geovani (Vampirella, Witchblade) into a full-length animated feature. Measuring 72 minutes in length and featuring voice acting (including the talented Misty Lee of Ultimate Spider-Man), sound effects, and music, the Red Sonja film transforms the seminal, epic comic book series' artwork into a thrilling experience of motion and sound. The film is available in Blu-Ray and DVD formats on August 2, 2016.

A full trailer of the film can be found at Shout! Factory's official Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aec-pACyayk

In the Red Sonja: Queen of Plagues film, the crimson-tressed heroine intends to pay back a blood debt owed to the one man who has gained her respect... even if it means leading a doomed army to their certain deaths! Who is Dark Annisia, and how has this fearsome warrior accomplished what neither god nor demon has been able to do: force Sonja to her knees in surrender? An epic tale of blood, lust, and vengeance, Queen of Plagues takes the She-Devil with a Sword from the depths of her own grave to the heights of battlefield glory.

Writer Gail Simone says, "Red Sonja's my favorite character, and seeing my words and the dazzling art of Walter Geovani brought to life has been absolutely thrilling. It's just a big, fun, sexy, sweaty epic with the best sword and sorcery character of all time!"

"We were fortunate to work with Gail and Walter as they had an incredible run on Sonja that had incredible critical acclaim," says Nick Barrucci, Publisher and CEO of Dynamite. "That we could work with them to create this movie to reach a larger fan base is incredibly rewarding."

"Queen of Plagues is one of the best books we have ever put out," says Luke Lieberman, President of Red Sonja, LLC. "It is new canon. Gail and Walter did an amazing job, and Shout! Factory brought the pages to life!"

Shannon Kingston, voice actress on the film, says, "This was up there as one of my favorite acting roles! Getting to bring the words of the great Gail Simone to life was an honor and so much fun. Her writing is so relatable, and funny when it's called for! I'm hoping to do the next two books!"

Red Sonja, the She-Devil with a Sword, is a fictional character, based on a high-fantasy swords-and-sorcery heroine created by author Robert E. Howard and adapted to comics by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith in Conan the Barbarian #23 (1973). Her immense popularity led to solo appearances in Marvel Feature (1975) and a self-titled series in 1977. Red Sonja has become the archetypical female warrior of fantasy literature: fierce, capable, and stunningly beautiful. Since 2005, the character has had many successful ongoing series, miniseries, one-shot comics, and crossover appearances through publisher Dynamite Entertainment. The popularity of the character has led to a 1985 live-action feature film (starring Brigitte Nielsen) and appearances on merchandise including statues, busts, barware, t-shirts, and an upcoming video game.

 SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON ANNOUNCEMENT:DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT AND MECHANIST GAMES
TEAM UP FOR HEROES OF SKYREALM COMICS!

Original Comics Tie Into Upcoming Summer 2016 Game Release



July 20, 2016, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce an agreement with Mechanist Games to produce original comics based on their forthcoming Heroes of Skyrealm game.

Coming to iOS and Android devices in Summer 2016, Heroes of Skyrealm blends a core of team-based action RPG gameplay with an addictive towers-and-traps strategic layer, as a ragtag crew of sky pirates, steampunk robots, and arcane warriors fight back against an invading empire from beyond the horizon.

Set several years before the game, the Heroes of Skyrealm comic tells the story of Darius, a young magic user in the spacefaring Unbroken Armada. After a routine mission to Skyrealm goes awry, Darius is thrown into the battle of a lifetime - and uncovers a secret that will change this unfamiliar world forever. Can Darius' powers free him from the den of a pirate queen? Will the ingenious inventor Beth survive the coming war?

The Heroes of Skyrealm comic is a joint creative collaboration between Mechanist and Dynamite, with members of the game's production team working closely with the comic's creative team to ensure it ties in tightly with the game. The story is by game writer Edwin McRae, with scripts being provided by Rik Hoskin, art by Ilaria Gelli, and colors by Aditya Nugraha.

"Going into Heroes of Skyrealm, we knew we needed to recapture the character focus and world-building that helped our other games connect with audiences, while also making sure that it was easy to pick up and play," says Mechanist Games founder David Lindsay. "Comics turned out to be the perfect medium to showcase a new side of Skyrealm, an era before our heroes became the rebels you control in the game."

"This is a new kind of storytelling for us - and it's a big leap to let someone ‘borrow our toys'," continues Lindsay. "But it's been a great thrill to watch the creative team breathe new life into the world, and to make an adventure that really stands on its own."

Dynamite's Director of Business Development Rich Young says, "This is an exciting opportunity to be able to work with Mechanist Games and help them launch this amazing game, and further develop the fantastic world they are creating. This new series will give players a deeper understanding of the game and its world, enhancing the overall experience."

Look for Heroes of Skyrealm - both the game and comics - coming your way this summer! Comics will be available through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital. Players can also unlock the comic from within the game itself! For more information, check Heroesofskyrealm.com and/or Dynamite.com.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON ANNOUNCEMENT:
INTERTWINED, THE KICKSTARTER COMIC SENSATION FROM
FABRICE SAPOLSKY AND FRED PHAM CHUONG, COMES TO DYNAMITE

FAST AS LIGHTNING, A LITTLE BIT FRIGHTENING...
STYLISH KUNG FU NOIR COMICS THAT KICK FROM THE HIP!



July 20, 2016, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite Entertainment, a company known for publishing such legendary characters like The Shadow and Will Eisner's The Spirit, announces today that the first-ever Kung Fu Noir comic, Intertwined, has found a home with the leading publisher of Comic Book Noir!

A murder. A mysterious league of protectors operating in the shadows. A legacy to protect. A city to save from filth, corruption and gangs. A girl who has to pose as a man to protect herself and her heritage. A young Kung Fu student unwillingly caught in the middle in a concrete jungle. Welcome to the world of Intertwined. It's 1971 and for Juan Jin, life is about to become hell! He didn't ask to be a hero. He didn't ask to go to Chinatown. He only wanted to follow the way of Wing Chun, the Kung Fu style he masters brilliantly. But destiny had other plans for him!

"Ten years ago, I came up with the concept for Spider-Man Noir. If Spidey Noir was just a reinvention of Peter Parker in the 1930s, with a social background, Intertwined is a more personal story," says writer Fabrice Sapolsky. "It came to me last year after I spent time in China. It's Noir. It has super-powered individuals. But it also deals with themes that I wanted to talk about for a long time: what it means to be an alien in America, to be different in a society that officially praises the melting pot but fears and sometimes hates differences. And of course, it had to have Kung Fu. I'm a VHS kid. Spent most of my teenage years at the video club watching Hong Kong movies. Every comic book I read and wrote led me to Intertwined. It's entertainment with substance."

"My father taught me Kung Fu and shared his love for Bruce Lee with me," says artist Fred Pham Chuong. "Working on Intertwined is a chance to pay homage to these two great men who are very important to me."

"Fabrice had me at ‘Kung Fu Noir' when he pitched this project," says Dynamite's Director of Business Development, Rich Young. "I'm a fan of both, so it was a no-brainer to set this up at Dynamite. Fred and Fabrice are telling a very cool and gritty story story here!"

"It's no secret that we here at Dynamite love crime noir, especially in comics! From The Shadow to Miss Fury, The Green Hornet to The Spider, we are proud to publish the best the genre has to offer," says Dynamite president and publisher, Nick Barrucci. "Now, we are pleased to publish the first story of its kind, a gritty collage of crime, corruption, and kung fu!"

Fellow creators praise Intertwined:

"Bruce Lee meets Swamp Thing in Intertwined, a tale of mystery, martial arts, and menace. It's masterful!" - David Gallaher (The Only Living Boy, High Moon)
"Intertwined asks the question: if Peter Parker had been a Chinese immigrant, what kind of hero would he have become? Fabrice's love of American popular culture is evident, but here he's re-introducing some diverse elements by referencing Chinese legends and teaming with artist Fred Pham Chuong to lend the book the visual style of martial arts manhua. This comic has the feel of Bruce Lee movies and the 1970s Kung Fu TV show, but with a hard-bitten noir edge. A timely message on cooperation for today's dis-United States." - David Hine (Second Sight, Darkness, Spawn)
"With Intertwined, Sapolsky, Pham Chong, and Lopez manage to capture the thrill of a period 70s Kung Fu tale while putting their own unique, modern spin on the tale. Frederic Pham Chong is an artist to watch; don't miss out on his electrifying debut!" - Mark Sable (Graveyard of Empires)
"An elemental version of Rock, Paper, Scissors... Intertwined spiritually picks up where chopsocky movies of the 1970s and hip-hop of the 1990s left off." - Dean Haspiel (The Red Hook, Billy Dogma)
Intertwined #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' August 2016 Previews catalog, the premiere source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in October. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of Intertwined with their local comic book retailers. Intertwined will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital..

Comics Enamel 4-Pin Set! The announcement of these fashionable and frightening pieces of flair arrives in tandem with the company's expansion of their collectible Women of Dynamite statue line to include Red Sonja "Diamond Eye", Dejah Thoris "Diamond Eye", and Jungle Girl "Black & White" statue variants, each one limited to only 99 statues of its kind in the world.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON ANNOUNCEMENT:
DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES THE LATEST HARDCOVER
COLLECTION IN JIM BUTCHER'S
THE DRESDEN FILES
GRAPHIC NOVEL SERIES: WILD CARD

An Original Story Set Within The Dresden Files' Official Continuity,
Exclusive to the Graphic Novel Format



July 20, 2016, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files saga continues in Wild Card, an original and in-continuity graphic novel by Jim Butcher, co-writer Mark Powers, and artist Carlos Gomez, featuring a story set after the bestselling novel White Night and graphic novel Down Town! Previously available only as single issues of a comic book series, the Wild Card storyline is now collected for the first time in Regular and Limited Signed Edition hardcover formats (priced at $24.99 and $39.99, respectively), with cover artwork by Stjepan Sejic (Switch).

From the back cover description of this upcoming hardcover collection: "A bizarre double murder draws the interest of Chicago's only wizard-for-hire. But as Harry Dresden begins his investigation, the clues lead to troubling conclusions about the possible perpetrator, and set him on a path that will place him in the middle of a conflict between the city's three most powerful factions -- a conflict that could engulf all of Chicago!"

"Wild Card is basically Harry Dresden vs. the Joker, more or less, although in this case, he's called Puck. ‘Cause Puck is an awful person, he really is, in The Dresden Files. He doesn't run around being cool; he's terrible... and fun," says Jim Butcher.

"Our ongoing partnership with author Jim Butcher on his Dresden Files series continues to be well received by his fiction audience and comics fans alike," says Dynamite CEO and Publisher, Nick Barrucci. "When we got the script for Wild Card, its twists and turns were every bit as unpredictable as someone whose hand includes its namesake playing card. You can tell that Wild Card is some of the most fun he has had writing stories for comics so far!"

Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files: Wild Card hardcover will be distributed to booksellers like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, and Indigo, via Dynamite's partnership with Diamond Book Distributors. For comic book specialty stores, Wild Card will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' August 2016 Previews catalog, corresponding to release in October. Fans are encouraged to reserve copies with their local comic book retailers or bookstores. The Dresden Files: Wild Card will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.

 SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON ANNOUNCEMENT:
F84 GAMES, DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT, AND RED SONJA, LLC
TEAM UP TO CREATE THE LONG-AWAITED VIDEO GAME
BASED ON ICONIC RED SONJA COMIC BOOK SERIES

Comic Book Writer Extraordinaire Gail Simone
to Develop the In-Game Narrative



July 19, 2016, North Hollywood, CA: F84 Games (www.f84games.com), Dynamite Entertainment, and Red Sonja, LLC are pleased to announce an exciting new partnership that will see Red Sonja, the She-Devil with a Sword, brought to life as a playable character in a dedicated, action-packed, and narrative-driven game. Sharing the news in lead up to Comic-Con International expo, Red Sonja fans will be happy to hear that the multi-format game will be ready for release this upcoming winter 2016/2017.

The stunning new game will be based on the acclaimed comic book published by Dynamite Entertainment, with the series' award-winning writer Gail Simone also confirmed to spearhead the plotlines, characters, and world. Collaborating with F84 Games, Simone's take on the fearless warrior of Hyrkania will present an authentic and seamless continuation of her stories - putting fans straight into an interactive video game version of the Red Sonja comic books.

"There're two things I love in this world without question, and those things are video games and Red Sonja," says Gail Simone. "Gaming is such a huge part of my life, it's what I do for relaxation, socialization, and inspiration, and my game and console collection is a terrifying sight to behold. Mixing my favorite character, the She-Devil With A Sword, with my life-long love of games is a dream come true. We plan on making this a bloody, sexy, funny good time, full of brutal swordplay, cackling villains, and horrendous monsters, all seen through Sonja's trademark wit. I cannot wait."

"Red Sonja is the kind of character you want to walk a mile in her boots; it is the perfect franchise to turn into a video game," said Luke Lieberman, President of Red Sonja, LLC. "We've waited for the perfect partnership and believe Jeff Hardy and F84 Games have a phenomenal vision for the game. Once Gail agreed to be the dungeon master for this adventure, I knew we had something special on our hands."

"We have had great commercial and critical success with Gail Simone's run on Red Sonja and her involvement helps bring that energy and excitement to the game. It's gratifying to work with F84 Games to create such a fantastic game. Fans of Red Sonja will truly be in awe with what we have planned for them," said Nick Barrucci, Publisher and CEO of Dynamite Entertainment. "From the mythology, to Sonja's characteristics and fight style, to the minute details of the Hyrkanian villages - the game will really be a truly immersive experience."

"We're thrilled to be crafting this new Red Sonja experience in partnership with Luke and Dynamite," commented Jeff Hardy, CEO of F84 Games. "The upcoming game will be a great way to bring new fans into the universe. With Gail Simone's poweful narrative, we feel the game will be truly engaging and bring the authentic Red Sonja quality that fans have come to expect."
