makes his first foray into the world of Chaos! Comics
and for Dynamite Entertainment
in the new series, Evil Ernie: Godeater
. The new series puts Ernie in a role he’s never had to play before… hero. Cover art by Lucio Parillo
.BYRON BREWER: First, Justin, Evil Ernie: Godeater #1 is your Dynamite Entertainment debut, congratulations! How does it feel to be working for the publisher?JUSTIN JORDAN:
Good! So far the experience has been really rad, which I expect to continue. Everyone seems really happy with how everything has turned out.BB: I have thought of Evil Ernie in many iterations, but never as the savior of mankind (or whatever its equivalent in the Chaos Universe). Tell us how this concept originated.JJ:
One of the tricks about writing a character like Evil Ernie is that he is not the good guy. In his original Brian Pulido incarnation, he was a genocidal maniac. The current iteration is more sympathetic than that, but still a long way from a hero.So I thought it’d be interesting to put him in a position where he IS the hero, and that he has to fight (actually literally) on the side of the angels.BB: Without giving too much away (unless you want to, lol), what can you tell readers about the “Godeater”?JJ:
Basically, a long time ago, heaven and hell teamed up to stop something that had devoured almost all the gods. Now it’s loose, and they really don’t have another plan to stop it.The Godeater itself is exactly what it says on the package – it eats gods, and grows stronger with each one.BB: What threat might this entity or entities pose to the Chaos Universe, and what other Chaos creations might we be seeing in this story as it unfolds?JJ:
The Godeater is a threat to literally everything. It will consume the universe and go looking for others if it can. And the trick they used to stop it once is not one that will work again. That’s a problem.For this one, we’re sticking strictly to the Ernie cast of characrers.BB: Everything else in comicdom has tie-ins this summer. Will there be any Chaos limited series/one shots connected to the Godeater storyline?JJ:
Nope, although what happens here will likely affect the universe as a whole. The end changes the status quo quite a lot.BB: Elephant in the room: What role, if any, does our pal Smiley play in this saga?JJ:
Smiley is there! Giving mostly pretty bad advice and running color commentary.BB: Did artists Colton Worley or Cezar Razek do any design work for the book? What makes them ideal artists for this extraordinary Ernie story?JJ:
Well, they’re super rad artists. And Colton designed the Godeater and Ernie’s new (old) look.BB: Tell us some other projects you might be working on now.JJ:
All sort of stuff, most of which I can’t talk about. I’ve got a new arc of my comic Spread starting in July, as well as a new book, Sombra, from BOOM! Sombra is basically Heart of Darkness in Cartel, Mexico, and I’m super excited about it.

Super sales are ending and continuing, and ComiXology is full of energy with the industry getting back to full steam!
First of all, check out the first new release from Dynamite in a while, with RED SONJA #15 available now! Critically acclaimed writer Mark Russell continues to weave this witty grounded yet action packed tale of Sonja the Red, now dealing with being Queen of Hyrkania in "peacetime" in Year Two. The art by Bob Q balances impressive action and cartooning for a classic, timeless style. Reviews have been great, so check it out!
Our Sci-Fi sale ends tonight! 13 thrilling graphic novels are deep discounted, as well as all their respective single issues. Below are some of the standouts included, but click here to browse the full sale!

You'll find all the below books across these two spectacular sales. All of these are whipsmart tales that pushed against the boundaries of comics and continue to inspire readers and creators today. Though we warn that they do employ mature subject matter.

We're joining together with Lucio Parrillo to debut a limited edition variant cover for Vampirella, available right now only on Indiegogo. Parrillo stands in rare air as one of the hottest cover artists today, and he's going on over a decade of close collaboration with us at Dynamite. Even more sweet items are available as rewards to fans who support Lucio's latest.
Tell all your comic collecting friends about the new campaign! They won't want to miss out on this hot variant either. You can click here to share the campaign on Twitter now.
"Vampirella is one of my favorite characters that I love to paint," said Lucio Parrillo. "Because of the situation in the world with the Coronavirus, we need your support more than ever. Thank you very much for your support!"
This highly collectible variant cover is available with or without logo "trade dress," as a black and white variant, in bundles, and with options signed and/or remarked by the legend himself. To truly marvel at the details in his brushstrokes, fans can add on a high-quality lithograph. Printed on #100 Euro Silk White stock at 18 by 24 inches, all it's missing is a frame to be the perfect focal piece of a fan's Vampirella collection.

This absolutely beautiful portrayal of Red Sonja by the legendary Frank Cho and colorist Sabine Rich is winding down. The campaign on Kickstarter to get this limited edition variant cover ends tonight at 3 AM EST. Head to the page now and don't miss out on this true gem!
Share the campaign with all your comic-loving friends to push this through the roof. Let's see if we can get to 500 strong! Frank Cho is renowned as one of the greatest comic book artists of his era, or any. Starting with his work on Liberty Meadows, he was acclaimed for both his emotive cartooning and ability to convey a story. As well as his beautiful depiction of women of course. Through the years he has drawn such titles as Wolverine, Hulk, Avengers, and more. Today he is considered one of the cream of the crop cover artists. He's worked with Dynamite extensively along the way, and each time he draws Red Sonja, Vampirella, Dejah Thoris or any number of other characters, he improves upon the last. His intricately detailed inking style is often perfectly complemented by colorist Sabine Rich.
What do you think of his latest? Add it to your collection today!
