VAMPIRELLA STRIKES #1 SELLS OUT!
January 16, 2013, Mt. Laurel, NJ - Vampirella Strikes continues to sell rapidly, thanks to strong retailer and fan support, plus an overwhelmingly positive response from critics! The red hot comic is quickly disappearing from store shelves, even despite its large overprint. Case in point, one particular cover edition of Vampirella Strikes #1 featuring fantastic interior artist Johnny D has sold out at Diamond! Also, the Vampirella Strikes #1 Subscription Special Limited Edition Photo Cover, limited to initial orders, has also sold through its entire print run.
Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce that three other superb cover editions of Vampirella Strikes #1 are still available, including those by the late, great Michael Turner, all-star artist David Finch, and "good girl" legend Milo Manara! And as a reminder, Dynamite has - for the first time ever - made each of the remaining cover editions available for individual order, granting fans and retailers the freedom to pick-and-choose their favorite images!
NOV121051 VAMPIRELLA STRIKES #1 CVR A MICHAEL TURNER $3.99
NOV121052 VAMPIRELLA STRIKES #1 CVR B DAVID FINCH $3.99
NOV121053 VAMPIRELLA STRIKES #1 CVR C MILO MANARA $3.99
Again, these cover variants are still available, but very near to complete sell-out! Retailers and fans should act fast to pick up the Vampirella Strikes #1 while supplies last!
Fan-favorite Vampirella writer Tom Sniegoski has returned to the franchise, launching a new miniseries with a familiar name: Vampirella Strikes! Sniegoski is one of the most successful, beloved writers to ever pen the raven-haired heroine, having previously written multiple Vampirella series (including the long-running Vengeance of Vampirella #1- #25).
Here's the buzz that critics are saying about Vampirella Strikes:
BROKENFRONTIER.COM: "It will take sheer willpower to be able to wait for the second issue, as this story really hit the ground running!"
FANBOYBUZZ.COM: "Visually stunning, the art and tone really shine."
UNLEASHTHEFANBOY.COM: "Vampirella Strikes #1 is an exceptional realization of this storied franchise and after the strength of this outing, I'm excited to see where this goes."
BLOODY-DISGUSTING.COM: "Vampirella Strikes already has the potential to be one of the best storylines that this character has seen in years."
SCIFIPULSE.NET: "This is a story of extreme evil and good with poor little Vampirella in the middle. The art and the coloring are really good, too! I came into this book knowing only who this character was and I left it knowing I want to read more! Thank you, Dynamite, for starting a new reader right in a new year!"
In Vampirella Strikes #1, the first chapter of a six-issue series, Vampirella - fearful that her monstrous nature is taking control - takes solace in some extreme violence in a Boston tavern overrun by demons. Living in a world of growing supernatural threats, our heroine never knows what she will be facing from one moment to the next, but what she finds waiting for her in her Boston Brownstone when she returns from a night of hunting is the most unexpected of all. Angels of Heaven have been sent by God... and they want Vampirella to work for them.
