Miss Fury, one of the most historically influential characters in comics history, returns to Dynamite in a new original graphic novel available only on Indiegogo.


Available right now to preorder, the book is helmed by the multiple Eisner nominated Billy Tucci (Shi, Sgt. Rock) and features the work of artist Maria Laura Sanapo (Red Sonja & Vampirella Meet Betty & Veronica) with colorist Ceci de la Cruz and letterer Mindy Lopkin.

"I’m beyond excited to play a role in bringing back one of the most influential characters in comics history," said writer Billy Tucci. "Miss Fury will battle the Third Reich from the skies over New York to behind enemy lines in occupied France as Marla Drake is charged with capturing and bringing to justice the sadistic Nazi commander of the infamous 'Joy Division.' More importantly, I take it very, very seriously to honor Miss Fury’s creator, June Tarpé Mills, and to bring to light one of the most heinous yet forgotten episodes of the Holocaust."

“I’m proud to continue the legacy of the great woman June Tarpé Mills on this marvelous character Miss Fury," said artist Maria Sanapo. "Her contribution to comics history is immense, with her talent and feminine touch. Each page has been a blast for me and working with Billy is fantastic!”

Miss Fury, real name Marla Drake, dates back to 1941 and holds the esteemed distinction of being the first female hero created by a woman in the medium. Writer and artist June Tarpé Mills chronicled the tales of the original "Cat Woman" for a full decade in newspaper strips, with the character also licensed at the time for a Marvel comic book. Mills and her heroine were more ahead of their time than even their notable first indicates. Mills dropped her first name when signing the strip to disguise her gender. When Marla was depicted wearing a bikini in a 1947 strip, 37 papers dropped the feature in protest.

Tucci and Sanapo continue that legacy of boundary-breaking in this new tale. Titled "Joy Division," the story delves into that eponymous deep dark secret of the Nazi regime. Through the 1940s, several concentration camps featured brothels wherein Jewish women were forced to work as prostitutes for soldiers. This rarely discussed, dark tragedy of history remains starkly relevant today. Miss Fury and her team of Black Furies have discovered this cruel phenomenon and are going to kick some Nazi ass, in an all-female "Inglourious Basterds" style mission. Joy Division actually fits perfectly into a continuity gap in the original storylines, taking place in the summer of 1944. The book also has its blessings from the Mills family.

"This is a story Billy has wanted to tell for years," said Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher. "Some fans may remember it was originally going to be periodicals, but there were scheduling issues. Then Billy wanted to change the format and take it directly to fans, as he's done so successfully with Shi. Billy wanted to bring in Maria, but she was busy working on our fun crossover with Archie Comics, so we pushed this back until she was available. With Ceci and Mindy joining too, everyone has finally been able to get back to this project, and it's become all the more personal and better for it. I can't wait for fans to read this incredible story!"





The original graphic novel will be a complete 100-page story. Three alternate covers by Billy Tucci are available across paperback and hardcover options. Collectors can also get copies signed and remarked by Tucci. There are alternate covers by Sanapo and Asha Kishna. Add-ons include multiple lithograph prints, a trading card set, and a challenge coin. One of the coolest items is a water bottle inspired by the WWII fighter plane "nose art" that featured American icons like Miss Fury. For retailers who love Miss Fury, Billy Tucci, and want to support this, there is a wholesale pledge level. There are bundles to get each cover or to get everything with a sweet customized ammunition box display. And backers can stay tuned for potential stretch goals to be revealed...

The hotly anticipated series Vampirella/Dracula: Unholy is set to continue Christopher Priest's acclaimed tenure on the Drakulonian antiheroine. With January's issue #2, the world-renowned artist Stanley "Artgerm" Lau returns to contribute a breathtaking cover for this steamy couple!

Artgerm returns to the character of Vampirella and this run by Christopher Priest following a trio of sold-out scorching covers he contributed close to the character's 50th anniversary celebration. Each even numbered issue of #2, 4, and 6 on the 2019 relaunch of Vampirella featured one of Artgerm's masterpieces. The first was a scintillating unique take on depicting the character's iconic costume, which has since been brought to the third dimension as a collectible statue bust. The second finally brought a fan-favorite piece originally made in conjunction with Sideshow to the collections of comic book fans. While the final one tapped into Artgerm's rare charcoal abilities and blew everyone away with a memorable blood-soaked acetate cover.

Now he's back with another novel twist on Vampirella's costume in the form of a dress, as well as her dashing new husband, the one and only king of the vampires - Dracula. The variant cover is also available in logo-free "virgin" editions and more.

Artgerm is joined by a squad of superstars for the other covers on this exciting second issue. The others include Shannon Maer, Rose Besch, Lucio Parrillo, and a cosplay cover.



VAMPIRELLA/DRACULA: UNHOLY #2 is solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ November 2021 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in January 2022. Comic book fans are encouraged to ...

Dynamite celebrates 30 years of Chaos! this December with an exciting new take on Evil Ernie courtesy of writer Scott Lobdell (Uncanny X-Men, Red Hood) and artist Ariel Medel (Xena)!


Ernest Gleckman is a good kid, coming up on his college graduation. The only asterisk is the rock band he leads each weekend. He may have a bit of a bad boy streak, but nothing like where life is about to take him! One night Ernest is mortally wounded, but barely scrapes by alive. Only now he must pay back his new "lease" on life as an avatar for a mysterious death cult. He must assume the role of... Evil Ernie!

"What happens when you take the most evil entity in all of creation....and bond him with the nicest guy in the world?," Scott Lobdell wanted to know. "I saw this EVIL ERNIE series as a way to explore not only the effect of Ernie's unadulterated evil on an innocent college student... but would Ernie react to having to reside in a vessel of pure innocence in order to achieve his goal. We've all come to accept that power corrupts and absolutely power corrupts absolutely. Is it possible absolute goodness can eradicate evil once and for all?"

"Also, I have to say, I am so excited about working with Ariel on EVIL ERNIE. I've gotten to work with a lot of superstars over the years... and I'm telling you he's destined to become one!"

Ernest and Ernie are polar opposites, as the young man learns as his new alter ego leans into cruelty and sadism as he tortures and murders his targets. As he balances the already ...

Christopher Priest's Vampirella saga continues this holiday season with the now married Daughter of Drakulon traveling to Dracula's castle to cheat fate in a new event limited series, Vampirella/Dracula: Unholy. But can love conquer evil?

Fans who check out Vampirella #25 will get to witness the biggest comic book wedding of the year. The story is directly picked up in the pages of this new series, but the backstory behind these monumental events goes back much longer. At the same time, the new series will be perfectly approachable for readers who haven't read a page of Vampirella in their lives.

Legendary writer Christopher Priest (Black Panther, Deathstroke) is joined in this series by bloodthirsty up and coming artist Donny Hadiwidjaja (Barbarella), colorist Mohan, and letterer Willie Schubert.

“We’ve kept Dracula off the board, from day one, because I’d planned to do this,” Priest laughed. “One of my first requests to Dynamite - ‘No Drac for the first year, please.’ When we bring Dracula into our series, we need that to be an event. I realize how over-used a claim it is but, trust me, you’re in for the trippiest love triangle/murder mystery in Dracula history, as well as an all-new vision for the classic character. It’s really tough to hype this book without blowing major plot twists. Donny and I are having a real blast with this.”

This is a Dracula story like no other. Defeated at the hands of a jealous lover, the genetic code of the Lord of Evil has been preserved within a deadly virus and passed on through generations to a young boy hunted by zealots ...

The partnership with Dynamite launched a limited-edition range of fan-favourite comic NFT Lithographs and is now expanding into NFT comics and graphic novels with Dynamite’s ground-breaking series, THE BOYS.

Following the news of RED SONJA #1 being completely sold out at the distributor level, and due to retailer and fan demand, Dynamite announces a second printing of the smash hit issue by superstar Mirka Andolfo (Sweet Paprika, Mercy)!
Rushing back to press to meet demand, Red Sonja #1 Second Printing (Diamond code: JUL218026) will feature on Final Order Cutoff the weekend of September 13. Right alongside the second issue's final orders, then the two will conveniently release together October 6.

Due to the tight timeline and limited paper available, the second print will not have a new cover, and is limited to 2,000 copies. However, the new printing features a cool blue logo treatment to differentiate it from the first printing. This rewards fans for being early adopters, as well as makes it a fun variant for new readers and collectors to add to their run.

Retailers and fans will be excited to learn that Red Sonja #2 also features some exciting variants available this weekend at FOC. Two new covers have been added, and are fully "open order" for retailers, requiring no order thresholds. Logo-free "virgin" editions and more are available as incentives.

Captivating cartoonist Tony Fleecs lends a hand for a Red Sonja cover like no other. His relationship with Dynamite goes back years to his pivotal role in establishing the Lil' Dynamite designs for several characters, as well as work on properties like Rainbow Brite and Animal Jam. The Dynamite team have been huge fans of his hit independent series Stray Dogs and thought it would be neat to have him depict Dynamite's biggest characters alongside some dogs!

Singaporean superstar Lesley "Leirix" Li also turns in another stunner, quickly becoming a Dynamite fan-favorite following her covers ...
