This summer, Dynamite Entertainment and Condé Nast will welcome readers back into the know with the launch of theirlatest incarnation of the classic pulp character the Shadow, in The Shadow: Leviathan. Launching in August, the comic-book series will feature writer Si Spurrier (X-Force, X-Men: Legacy, Judge Dredd) and artist Daniel HDR (Superman, Cyborg), who will bring the pulp icon into modern day in a tale full of deadly intrigue, gun-blazing action, and a study of the nature of evil!

For the better part of a century, the Shadow's sinister laughter brought the chill of fear to evil-doers - but in our modern times, the streets of Manhattan have gone largely silent. But he is not forgotten. Not by the people he's saved. Mary Jerez, is one of those people. The Shadow saved her from a horrifying school shooting - Mary knows all too well what evil lurks in the hearts of men. So when a horribly burnt man - incredibly strong and fierce, despite these terrible injuries- arrives under her care as a resident at the hospital - she believes she knows who he is, too. Is this mysterious man actually the Shadow - and with Mary's help, will evil-doers again know what it means to fear his terrible justice?

Writer Si Spurrier says, "For me - and I suspect for most comics creators - The Shadow is an irresistible property. The hat and scarf, the cold eyes and colder laugh, the wisp of cordite and the flourish of a cape: all plucked wholesale from the noir pulps and radio plays of the 1930's. You don't say "no" to a true primogenitor like that. On the taxonomical chart of Western comics he's a common ancestor for a sizeable chunk of the marketplace. Every street vigilante, every masked crime-fighter, every necessary monster: he's in the DNA of them all. A living fossil, a coelacanth or goblin-shark for the comics world, swimming in waters of ice and ink. And like all perfectly engineered things he endures - he flourishes - amidst newer, cockier, less perfect specimens.

Spurrier added, "What I most love about the Shadow is, like all good legends, he tells us even more about the present than the past. In this new story I'm dragging the legend into the modern world, with all its melting-pot problems and changing attitudes. This isn't the world the Shadow was born into, with its pinstripe gangsters and mystic monsters (although we'll be visiting that one too). Instead our main story unravels in a world of corruptions and petty politics, prejudices and hate. A world with a frightening new regime taking control. A world where true power lies not with those who hold the reins, but with those who control the story. How can two guns and a devil's stare fight the 21st Century? I couldn't be prouder to be telling this tale. With the exceptional Daniel HDR by my side, The Shadow: Leviathan is a smart, slick, brutal takedown of today, with nothing less than a living idea holding its finger to the trigger."

Simon Spurrier is a writer of comics, novels and TV. His most recent works include Cry Havoc, Doctor Who, X-Men Legacy, Godshaper, and the Eisner award nominated science-fantasy series, The Spire. His latest prose novels are Contract and A Serpent Uncoiled, while his first digital-only project is the "absurdist-noir" novella Unusual Concentrations.

Artist Daniel HDR says, "My first contact with The Shadow was during my teens, 15-16 years old, when the character was given a new revamp by Howard Chaykin. Also I was aware of the previous incarnations thru old fanzines. The character and everything that surrounds him is an invitation for any artist to play around with graphic storytelling, and I love that possibility! Also, Si's script is challenging and so damn dynamic! I can't wait for people to read the book!"

"We've wanted to work with Si for years, and had not been able to find the right project to match his schedule. In looking to relaunch The Shadow, we wanted a fresh new voice, and we were able to make the schedule work with Si's schedule," says Dynamite CEO and Publisher Nick Barrucci. "Si's story is crisp and takes The Shadow to new depths. And Daniel's (HDR) art is nothing short of magnificent! I cannot wait for fans to read this incredible new series."

"We look forward to building on the success of the Batman Shadow crossover with this new series from Dynamite," said Cathy Hoffman Glosser, Senior Vice President, Licensing at Conde Nast. "Going forward, we will continue to tap into our incredible library of famed Street and Smith characters in new and exciting directions."

The Shadow began its existence in 1930 as a narrative voice on the Street and Smith radio program Detective Story Hour. The audience thrilled to the serialized adventures of this mysterious figure, whose mythos expanded to include Occidental mysticism, hypnotic powers over weak criminal minds, and twin .45 caliber handguns. With a keen intellect and relentless drive, The Shadow hunted criminals without mercy in an era when gumshoe detectives and bootlegging mobsters was a thrilling yet fearsome reality. The character's popularity has endured for over 80 years, bolstered by appearances in radio serials, novels, comic books, films, and more. In recent years, Dynamite published a groundbreaking and well-received Shadow series launched by comic writer Garth Ennis (Preacher), with further tales crafted by Victor Gischler and Chris Roberson. Lamont Cranston's grim alter-ego has also appeared in such related series as The Shadow: Year One, Masks, and The Shadow / Green Hornet: Dark Nights.

The debut issue of The Shadow features a wide selection of cover variants, providing fans and retailers with the freedom of choice! The cover artwork features the talents of Kenneth Rocafort (Superman, Teen Titans), interior artist Daniel HDR, Aaron Michael Kaluta (The Shadow), Brandon Peterson (Uncanny X-Men), Neal Adams (Batman, X-Men), and Tyler Kirkham (Amazing Spiderman, Strykeforce), respectively. Limited variant editions in "Black & White" and "Virgin Art" formats are also available as retailer incentives for comic shops that support the launch issue by achieving stocking thresholds.



The Shadow #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' June 2017 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in August. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of The Shadow #1 with their local comic book retailers. The Shadow #1 will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, Madefire, and Dark Horse Digital.

Dynamite is celebrating the heat of the summer with two scorching hot limited edition Red Sonja comics by the massively talented artistic power couple of Arthur Adams and Joyce Chin - available on Indiegogo right now!

"Both of us love Red Sonja, so we were really excited to do these covers," said Joyce Chin. "I read tons of Spider-Man comics when I was a kid, so the Spider-Man and Red Sonja was the very first time I saw Red Sonja. I've been lucky enough to draw her several times.

Arthur Adams added, "I've loved Red Sonja since I was, gosh, probably 13 years old or so. I used to buy Frank Thorne Red Sonja comics. His art was so fantastic"

These beautiful covers are completed with the coloring by Peter Steigerwald, known for his fan-favorite pairings with artists like Michael Turner, Joe Benitez, Ivan Reis, and many more. And they're printed over special presentations of the recent smash hit Invincible Red Sonja #1 and the classic Marvel Feature: Red Sonja #2. Each cover is available separately, as a pair, and in three key variations and multiple combo packs. Trade dress, logo-free "virgin" and a black and white option round out the variants for each. Plus ultra-rare metal editions, and of course signed CGC graded copies!

Arthur Adams is by many considered to be one of the greatest comic artists of his era or any. His contributions to such hallmark titles as Uncanny X-Men, Fantastic Four, Hulk, and more were celebrated in fandom as a special occasion every time his name was in the credits box. Indendent work such as Monkeyman & O'Brien brought him to a whole new generation of fans. His style ...

The Mistress of the Dark herself, Elvira, returns to monthly comic books and this time she's joined by fellow horror comedy legend Vincent Price!

The two titans of terror and comedy unite in comics for the very first time as Dynamite Entertainment proudly presents Elvira Meets Vincent Price! The ghost of Price has a mission that only the macabre maven can assist him with. The apocalypse is coming, and it's heading straight to livestreaming for binge-watching! Leave it to a fabled lost film to save the day, if only our horror hostess and spectral companion can find it in time.

Writer David Avallone (Bettie Page, Drawing Blood) returns to capture the timeless voice of Elvira, and taps into his own history and love for Old Hollywood and film to bring Vincent Price along for the ride this time. With over three years and countless issues of experience working right alongside Elvira herself and putting words in her mouth, fans will be happy to see his return. This time he's joined for the first time by artist Juan Samu (Black Panther, Transformers). The cast is rounded out by returning colorist Walter Pereyra and letterer Taylor Esposito.

Avallone shared, "Writing Vincent Price is a gift. On-screen and off, he’s an indelible character and it’s delightful to write in his “voice,” just as it is to write in Elvira’s. He’s charming and elegant and hilarious… and as in real life, a perfect foil for Elvira. I recommend fans Googling their talk show appearances together."

Though this new history-making crossover is perfect to jump right into for Elvira newcomers, Dynamite has released several ...

Barbarella, the sensual siren of space returns for a series of all-new adventures by a dynamic new creative team!

Dynamite is proud to welcome writer Sarah Hoyt for her big debut in comic books with the new series starting in July. The longtime author has written over 34 novels in science fiction, fantasy, mystery and more, including her fan-favorite Darkship Thieves, and garnering Prometheus and Dragon Awards. For this space-faring journey, she's joined by rising star artist Madibek Musabekov (Vampirella vs Purgatori). Colorist Ivan Nunes and letterer Carlos Mangual round out the crew at the controls.

In this exciting new series, Barbarella sets out on a mission filled with danger, duplicity, and a dose of romance as she travels through multiple inventive sci-fi locales. Fans of the character and genre can expect deep dives on questions of class, romance, sexuality, and more in the classic Barbarella style.

"Writing the Barbarella stories was more fun than is probably legal in most states," said writer Sarah Hoyt. "The work of learning a new format was overshadowed by the fun of being able to think big and play with someone else’s no-holds-barred character. I’ve also loved the art I’ve seen so far from Madibek!"

Traveling from planet to planet, the tale starts in Camelot, home to the rich and powerful class seeking escape from a crowded and decaying galactic empire. Intercepting desperate transmissions from the underclass, Barbarella sets off to investigate, unravelling a string of secrets. Along the way she will visit the underwater world of Encantado, the carnival-like Rio, and even more. All painstakingly designed by Musabekov.

On her escapade, Barbarella is joined by two fun new characters that ...

Thanks to fabulous fan support, Dynamite and the creative team are excited to announce the extension of Sonjaversal and a great new jumping-on point!

The ultimate story of Red Sonja multiversal mayhem was originally set as a five issue miniseries. By popular demand, more is to come, starting with issue #6 this July. Writer Christopher Hastings (Unbelievable Gwenpool) and artist Pasquale Qualano (Dejah Thoris) return for an all-new story arc perfect for new readers while continuing the same boundless energy and creativity of the previous issues.

With the opening story blasting open the metaphorical toy chest and introducing an endless expanse of Sonja's battling for the fate of the universe, now the team will drill down and focus on select Sonja's in a more episodic format.

Making her moody debut in this issue is Noir Sonja! She's on the trail of someone making a huge splash in the criminal underworld - only problem is that they're dead. Actually, she has more problems, as a whole new onslaught of alternate Sonja's throw off her investigation.

"I love to play with genre, and this arc is going to be all about mashing up Red Sonja's sword and sorcery with noir, then gothic horror, then space opera, and 80s action movies. It's a blast," said writer Christopher Hastings.

Fans can stay tuned for full explorations of even more wildly unique takes on the She-Devil With a Sword!

A top tier team of cover artists bring their own multiverse-esque appeal to the title with the diverse stylings of Lucio Parrillo, Joseph Michael Linsner, Jae Lee, Junggeun Yoon, and of course Dynamite's fan-favorite cosplay covers.

One of the oldest and most iconic couples in genre fiction reunite once more this summer in Dejah Thoris vs. John Carter of Mars by sci-fi superstar Dan Abnett!


Kicking off this July from Dynamite, Abnett (Guardians of the Galaxy, Aquaman) opens a new chapter in the storied history of Barsoom and its charismatic couple. Serving as a perfect jumping-on point for new and returning fans, while also continuing threads from Abnett's previous tales, the love of Dejah Thoris and John Carter will be tested by a grave new threat and cataclysmic planet-wide war.

"Now that John Carter has returned, is he still the legendary hero they all respect?," said writer Dan Abnett. "And are he and his beloved Dejah still working to the same ends? It's a tale of swords, sorcery, space gods and true love, an interplanetary romance in the true sense of both those words."

Barsoom has been in crisis, wracked by freak weather seemingly signifying a coming ice age. Matching turbulence has cropped up as conflict between the planet's many tribes and nations. The Earth-born hero of John Carter was missing. With Dejah Thoris and the help of her allies, stability has been established (for now) and John has been found, only for the true foes to take center stage in this new story.

The Longborn, ancient "space gods" of immense and mysterious power wildly outmatch the citizens of Barsoom. They may even be the original architects of all life in the Solar System, shaping the red planet in their image. Back to reclaim their creations to wipe the slate clean and start over, it is up to Dejah, John, and their allies to take on their biggest threat yet.

Artist Alessandro Miracolo joins the adventuring ...

The most prestigious Red Sonja comic book ever debuts this July to heat up the summer! Red Sonja: Black, White, Red showcases today's top talents and longtime legends with unforgettable and experimental tales!

The premiere issue has stories by Kurt Busiek with Benjamin Dewey, Amanda Deibert with Cat Staggs, as well as Mark Russell with Bob Q!


In the first issue, the legendary Kurt Busiek (Astro City, Marvels) returns to the Hyborean Age for his first ever Red Sonja story. Alongside frequent collaborator Benjamin Dewey (King in Black: Namor, The Autumnlands), the duo take readers to the Mountains of Night, a foreboding haunt that calls Sonja to it, in search of a precious artifact.

“I’ve gotten to roam around in the Hyborean Age before, and even wrote Kulan Gath in Avengers. But the one part of those classic comics that I never got to write was Red Sonja," said writer Kurt Busiek. "So it’s great to have a chance to correct that, and do a full-on Sonja story, where we can showcase what makes her great — her quick wits, her anger and her unique way of dealing with the world’s rough edges.

Vampirella returns to the (in)famous '90s in a meta tale from acclaimed writer Max Bemis (Moon Knight, Savage) that delves into the celebrated and critiqued comics of the era as well as fandom itself!

The 1990s were one of the most exciting yet controversial eras in comic books. A time of bravado, excess, pouches, and cyborg assassins. But also heady and at times pretentious fantasy books usually written by Englishmen. As a reader at the time, Max Bemis was drawn to both types of books at the historic Golden Apple Comics in Los Angeles. Including his discovery of Vampirella, who somehow straddled the middle with explosive action stories, bad girl covers, and top tier creators like Grant Morrison, Mark Millar, and others.

Vampirella 1992 is a one-shot special that interweaves and melds those two styles, through the artistic stylings of Roberto Castro (Turok) and Marcos Ramos. For the covers, Castro is joined by fan-favorite Mike Krome and a cosplay variant.

"Vampirella 1992 explores these two sides of 90's comic fandom, goofy and extreme versus heady, trippy and dark," said writer Max Bemis. "It's just as scary as imagining Alan Moore slow-dancing sexily with Rob Liefeld."

Readers will get to know a group of women who work weekends portraying "bad girls" at comic conventions, video store events and other geek gatherings. But when terrorists attack one of these conventions, the unexpected heroines must take their cosplay to the next level Die Hard-style to save the day.

The character at the center of the story is one particular model who has been through the ups and downs navigating the comics industry and events. A second viewpoint will ...
