 DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES DEAL WITH
LIONSGATE TO BRING JOHN WICK TO COMICS

Dynamite Series from Hit Movie to Launch Spring 2017!



December 21, 2016, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite Entertainment announced today that it has made a deal with Lionsgate to publish a comic book series inspired by the studio's popular John Wick feature film.

John Wick introduces a retired hitman thrust back into the underworld following his wife's death and subsequent theft of his 1969 Mustang, as well as the killing of a dog she left to help him cope with her passing. These tragic events lead to John Wick seeking retribution in the darkest depths of the Russian mafia in pursuit of Iosef, the leader of the gang of Wick's assailants. As this pursuit leads him deeper into the Russian crime syndicate, a trail of dead bodies -- including some of his closest friends and allies -- begins to follow behind.

John Wick grossed $86 million dollars at the worldwide box office when it was released in 2014. The highly anticipated sequel John Wick: Chapter Two will be in theaters February 10, 2017.

"John Wick was such an exciting film, mixing martial arts action with snappy dialogue and smart writing," says Dynamite CEO and Publisher, Nick Barrucci. "As the credits rolled, you were left wanting more, and it was obvious that they had the makings of a franchise. We were quick to pursue the opportunity to develop a comic book series, and are thrilled to have been granted the rights to tell all-new stories with the character!"

"A comic series is the perfect vehicle to engage in a different way with fans as well as expand the John Wick universe. We found a great partner in industry leader Dynamite Entertainment who shared our passion and enthusiasm for the franchise," says Sheila Clarke, SVP Global Consumer Products Lionsgate Entertainment.

Dynamite Entertainment will introduce all-new comics starring John Wick in 2017, with details on release date and creative team to be announced in the coming months.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 NANCY DREW AND THE HARDY BOYS: THE BIG LIE
FEATURES AMERICAN ICONS LIKE YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN THEM BEFORE!

An All-New Hardboiled Crime Series Casts Beloved Sleuth
Nancy Drew as a Femme Fatale Alongside the Hardy Brothers



December 20, 2016, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Earlier this year, Dynamite Entertainment further solidified claim to the industry's leading publisher of licensed comics with news of an exclusive arrangement with Simon & Schuster to bring the beloved characters Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys to comics with all-new adventures!

And with the 2017 release of Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys: The Big Lie, they are creating a Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys mystery unlike any other you've ever read...

In this modern take, teenage brothers Frank and Joe Hardy are accused of the murder of their father - a detective in the small resort town of Bayport - and must team up with the femme fatale Nancy Drew to prove their innocence (and find the real guilty party in the process) in a twisting, hardboiled tale, complete with double-crosses, deceit, and dames.

Inspired by new crime classics like Ed Brubaker's Fatale and Darwyn Cooke's Parker series, writer Anthony Del Col (Assassin's Creed, Kill Shakespeare) and artist Werther Dell'Edera (Batman: Detective ComicsHouse of Mystery) bring the iconic teen detectives into the modern age, and redefine noir for a new generation of readers!
Writer Del Col, a big fan of the characters, conceived this unique take years ago and worked to find and secure the license with Dynamite to bring this tale to life.

"I often come up with a lot of bizarre ideas, and two years ago I had this vision of a modern-day noir story with femme fatale Nancy Drew aiding accusing criminals the Hardy Boys," says writer Anthony Del Col. "It was an idea that, upon further thought, actually wasn't that bizarre. And now Werther, Dynamite, and I are using it as a launching pad to examine who these characters really are, and why they're still so beloved."

"We wanted to do a take on the iconic characters the world grew up on unlike any that had come before," says Dynamite Entertainment CEO and Publisher Nick Barrucci. "Anthony Del Col had a true passion for the source material that Werther Dell'Edera was able to bring through perfectly. This series does the characters justice, with a modern take that fits perfectly alongside Dynamite's other popular crime titles!"

Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys: The Big Lie will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' January 2017 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in March. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies with their local comic book retailers. Nancy Drew & The Hardy Boys will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 DYNAMITE LAUNCHES NEW VAMPIRELLA SERIES AT
25-CENT INTRODUCTORY PRICE

Paul Cornell and Jimmy Broxton Series Accessible To All Fans



December 8, 2016, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Next year will see Vampirella heading in a new and very different direction! Vampirella was last spotted in 2016 doing what she does best - defending the world from threats both mystic and evil... but she has not been seen since. Vampirella #0 will answer the questions behind her disappearance! The debut issue retails at 25-cents to allow for fans to read at an introductory price and retailers to confidently stock copies on the shelves. Retailers are also able to qualify for Incentive copies by Joseph Michael Linsner and J. Scott Campbell.

Over a thousand years since she vanished, Vampirella's poised to make her fateful return, but the world that awaits her is unlike anything she might expect - or want to defend! Written by acclaimed comics, novel, and television writer Paul Cornell (Action Comics, Doctor Who) and illustrated by the masterful Jimmy Broxton (Goldtiger, Knight & Squire), it's the start of an adventure for Vampirella unlike any she's had in her long and storied history. Don't miss the train before it leaves the station!

"I'm delighted to be writing a Vampirella that takes onboard everything she's been and moves it forward into a new setting, where the gothic meets science fiction," says writer Paul Cornell. "I'm also delighted to be working again with my old friends, the incredibly talented artist Jimmy Broxton, and the incredibly talented editor, Matt Idelson. There's a lyrical, Modesty Blaise feel to Jimmy's art on this. I'm hoping especially to find a female audience. The character's often been regarded as a nostalgia item, cheesecake, and we're building on previous efforts to keep moving away from that to something more interesting. I'm excited to be building a whole new world, I'm loving what Jimmy's art is doing (Barbarella! Hepburn!), and I hope that excitement communicates itself to the reader."

"We wanted to give fans and retailers a low-cost entry into the queen of monster hunters, and this introductory-priced issue allows them to stock up and minimize their risk to a great new series," says Dynamite CEO and publisher, Nick Barrucci. "We have been fortunate to work with so many of the industry's best talents on Vampirella; Paul coming on board to write is another high watermark, and Jimmy's art complements his scripts beautifully. Their take on the character is both fresh and classic, and is sure to please longtime fans and first-time readers alike!"

"This new series definitely harkens back to the earliest days of the character in a lot of ways, while firmly taking Vampirella very, very far forward," says Senior Editor Matt Idelson. "I think this is really going to appeal to both longtime fans of Vampi and those folks who've never before given her stories a try. I'm definitely proud to be a part of this."

Paul Cornell is an English writer of novels, comic books and television, perhaps best known for his work on Doctor Who, dating back to 1990. Since that time, Cornell has written over ten Doctor Who novels, as well as multiple series for both DC and Marvel, as well as the widely celebrated Vertigo series, Saucer Country.

Vampirella is a raven-haired heroine who remains, even after 45 years of publication, one of the comic industry's most well known characters, due in no small part to Dynamite Entertainment. Since Vampirella's very healthy resurgence in 2010, Dynamite has published three volumes of a monthly series, several miniseries and one-shot specials, and crossovers with multimedia brands and comic book peers. The Vampirella franchise is a haven for writers and artists with a penchant for the macabre.

Vampirella #0 will retail for the low introductory price of $.25, and will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' December 2016 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in February 2017. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies with their local comic book retailers. Vampirella will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.

 DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES LICENSE WITH CBS CONSUMER
PRODUCTS TO REVIVE EVERGREEN TELEVISION PROPERTIES


Mighty Mouse and Charmed to Return in All-New Comic Book Series for 2017



October 5, 2016, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite Entertainment and CBS Consumer Products announced today a new license agreement for two classic properties from the rich history of television: the animated legend Mighty Mouse, and the hit 90's series Charmed!

Mighty Mouse returns to comics for the first time in 30 years, just in time for the character's 75th anniversary in 2017! Mighty Mouse was first conceived in 1942 as a parody of another cape and cowl hero introduced a few years earlier, and went on to star in countless animated films for the better part of the next 20 years, finding a new life on Saturday mornings in the 1960's.

"Mighty Mouse is as much a part of American pop culture as the two characters he is inspired by," says Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and publisher. "The original comics and animation entertained generations of fans, and with the popularity of superhero movies, there couldn't be a better time for his return! I am thrilled that Dynamite will be able to bring this timeless hero to a whole new generation of fans."

Charmed premiered critical acclaim and commercial success, and by the end of its eight-season run, had won numerous awards and aired in more than 20 countries. Charmed follows the Halliwell sisters: three witches, each powerful in her own right, but invincible when they come together to summon The Power of Three. Protecting innocents from the underworld's demons, the Halliwell sisters battle evil from their family home in San Francisco.

"Charmed is a perfect fit for Dynamite for a number of reasons," says Dynamite CEO and publisher Nick Barrucci. "We have had tremendous success with cult television properties, and the Halliwell sisters will be right at home. Our plans for these new series are sure to please comics readers and die-hard TV junkies alike!"

Details on Dynamite's upcoming Mighty Mouse and Charmed publishing programs will be released in the coming months.

 DYNAMITE UNVEILS THE SECOND WOMEN OF DYNAMITE BUST
INSPIRED BY THE ARTWORK OF ARTHUR ADAMS!

Vampirella, the Queen of Monster Hunters, Immortalized in Gorgeous Poly-Resin!


October 5, 2016, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Following up on Dynamite's recent announcement of the Women of Dynamite line of busts based on the artwork of legendary illustrator Art Adams (which debuts with Red Sonja next month), Dynamite announces the release of a Vampirella bust in February!

Announcing an all-new Vampirella bust inspired by the artwork of comic book master Art Adams! Dynamite continues to build upon its relationship with creative partner The Brewing Factory and skillful sculptor Jason Smith for this second offering in the bust series, a limited edition poly-resin bust with cast-metal details and a base measuring 3" by 5.5". Packaged in a four-color display box, each of these highly-detailed busts celebrates one of the industry's finest artists!

"We recently announced the expansion of our collectible business to include this beautiful new line of busts," says Dynamite CEO and publisher, Nick Barrucci. "Art Adams is truly a living legend and it was an honor to work with him on some of our most iconic covers. To see his vision of Red Sonja and Vampirella come to life in three dimensions is more gratifying than I can even describe. I guess you will have to see for yourself when you unpack your very own for the first time!"

"Art Adams' illustration style has a unique physicality and real sculptural quality to it, making it a natural for a line of busts," says Georg Brewer, founder of The Brewing Factory. "Sculptor Jason Smith has done a great job using Art's cover art as a jumping off point for this series which capture the dynamic spirit of the illustrations."

The Women of Dynamite limited edition Vampirella bust will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' December 2016 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in February 2017, priced at $89.99. Comic book fans and collectors are encouraged to reserve their limited edition bust with their local comic book retailers.

 BETTIE PAGE RETURNS TO COMICS FROM DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT!
The Legendary "Queen of Pinups" will Grace the
Printed Comic Page for the First Time in 20 Years!



October 5, 2016, Mt. Laurel, NJ: The coming year will see the return of another female icon, one whose jet black bangs haven't graced the pages of comics in far too long: Bettie Page! This marks only the second time in history that Ms. Page has appeared in officially licensed comic books, following the short-lived series Bettie Page Comics in 1996-97.

The Pinup Queen has certainly long been a staple in the comic book world, dating back to the 1980's when Dave Stevens based the Rocketeer's girlfriend "Betty" off of the iconic leading lady. Subsequently, Ms. Page was seen in the anthology series from Black Cat Comics, a limited pinup series, and lastly in Dark Horse's Bettie Page Comics written and illustrated by Jim Silke.

"Bettie Page set the world on fire in the 1950s, and her influence still burns throughout American culture today!" says Dynamite CEO and Publisher, Nick Barrucci. "Think about the vintage fashion craze, those instantly recognizable and ever-popular bangs, the pinup queen tattoos that are so playfully taboo! In our own industry, Bettie's striking look and wild spirit has taken shape in the pages of Rocketeer, in Watchmen, in the artwork of Joe Shuster, in the Batman villainess Poison Ivy, in DC Bombshells. We're proud to contribute to the enduring legacy of one of the 20th century's most unforgettable performers, and can't wait to deliver new four-color adventures to her loyal fans."

Dynamite Entertainment will continue to roll out news on their upcoming Bettie Page publishing program, as well as additional licensed merchandise categories, in the coming months.

 BILL WILLINGHAM AND ARTIST CEZAR REZAK TAKE THE CHARACTERS OF
EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS ON THEIR GREATEST ADVENTURE!

Creators Tell the Most Ambitious ERB Adventure to Date!



October 5, 2016, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Comics luminary Bill Willingham (Fables, Legenderry) dips his toes and his pen into the rich world of Edgar Rice Burroughs with news of an all-new limited series featuring Tarzan, Korak, James Carter, Dejah Thoris, and more: The Greatest Adventure! Previous Warlord of Mars artist Cezar Rezak joins Willingham on the planet-hopping series grand enough to have come from the mind of Burroughs himself!

A crash landing reveals a secret plot by a mysterious cabal of scientists to weaponize Jason Gridley's famous wave, turning it into a disintegration ray that can bypass distance, on a galactic scale, to destroy a single person, or even an entire world at a time. Gridley seeks the help of Tarzan and Jane to stop these villainous adventurers from finding the final piece needed to fulfill their devious end. When Tarzan puts the word out to assemble a crew to man Jason Gridley's Martian Flying Ship, the galaxy's greatest fighters and adventurers come together to stop this evil plan.

"Here we are with my chance, at long last, to play in the very fields that Burroughs created, and to marry my two loves of comic book and prose fiction in doing it," says Bill Willingham. "One comic series couldn't possibly contain everything I've loved and discovered in his books. The Greatest Adventure contains everything I love that I could fit into a single series, including his most popular characters, as well as many obscure ones, which are nevertheless beloved to me."

"Bill Willingham is a master of weaving together characters to tell a masterful story, pulling together multiple worlds and timelines," says Dynamite CEO and publisher, Nick Barrucci. "To have him tackle John Carter and the other characters of literary master Edgar Rice Burroughs with the help of Cezar Rezak is truly a matchup that every comics fan should be as excited to read as I am! This truly may be the ‘Greatest Adventure' yet!"

Bill Willingham is the American writer whose career can be traced back to the 1980's breakout series Elementals, and has since included notable work for DC's Vertigo imprint, including a 13-year run on the critically acclaimed Fables, bringing together notable characters from fairytales and folklore. Willingham's previous work for Dynamite includes the steampunk crossover, Legenderry, featuring some of the company's most well-known characters.

Cezar Rezak has drawn multiple series for Dynamite, including Battlestar Galactica, Warlord of Mars, and Dejah Thoris.

The Greatest Adventure will premier in 2017, with further details to be announced in the coming months.
