    DYNAMITE UNLEASHES ONE-SHOT FEATURING EVA: DAUGHTER OF THE DRAGON
    The Daughter of Dracula Hunts the Things that Go Bump in the Night



    June 12, 2007, Runnemede, NJ
    - DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT today released images and information announcing the release of their all-new horror/adventure one-shot Eva: Daughter of the Dragon! The series features the further adventures of Eva, the dangerous and beautiful monster hunter who first appeared fighting Dracula in Dynamite's Army of Darkness series issues #5 through #8 (which has been collected in the trade "Ash Versus the Monsters" - please check with your local retailer for a copy). Scheduled for a July release, this one-shot issue is being written by Brandon Jerwa with art by Edgar Salazar, and will be available with covers by Jo (Buffy) Chen and Edgar Salazar, as well as with a special edition foil cover featuring the art of Jo Chen.

    According to Dynamite, "She is beautiful, mysterious, cunning and above all dangerous! She is the daughter of Dracula… and she hunts monsters! She is Eva: Daughter of the Dragon!! What more can you ask for in a heroine. When Eva helped Ash fight Dracula and the Classic Monsters in our Army of Darkness series, we knew right away that this girl had legendary potential! Now, thanks to Brandon Jerwa, who certainly knows how to write sword-swinging action and intrigue through the centuries, and the amazing artistic talents of Edgar Salazar, we are proud to present Eva: Daughter of the Dragon in her very first (and most definitely not last) solo adventure! What this amazing creative team has planned is more than your usual vampire slaying expedition; it's a full-scale monster hunting excursion and just a primer for things to come. This one-shot will lead to bigger and badder and scarier things in the Dynamite Universe featuring Eva: Daughter of the Dragon."

    Writer Brandon Jerwa described the character and plot as, "Eva is the daughter of everyone's favorite bloodsucker, Count…Chocula? Blacula? Duckula? Wait, no. Dracula. Count Dracula. She was raised by monks who tried to keep the truth from her for as long as they could, but we all know how that usually works out. In the Army of Darkness story arc, Eva is a monster-hunter in training when she's sucked forward into present day to face down her old man and his gang of monster followers. My story is set both before and after that little romp, but you absolutely do not have to know anything about the AOD story to enjoy this. I don't disavow her previous appearance at all, but you'll see why we don't have to get hung up on the specifics of it.

    "How do we top Eva facing off against Dracula? By having her fight him again! Seriously, though, there is a threat in this book that actually puts Dracula's top-of-the-heap position into question. This is no team-up between our heroine and her evil dad, though; it's a mutual threat to both of them."

    Additional interviews and Preview Pages will be shown in the upcoming days!
