BOOM! Studios is proud to announce A SPARK WITHIN THE FORGE: AN EMBER IN THE ASHES GRAPHIC NOVEL, an official prequel to the New York Times bestselling series of novels from creator Sabaa Tahir, writer Nicole Andelfinger (Dragon Prince: Bloodmoon Huntress), artist Sonia Liao (The Curie Society), colorist Kieran Quigley, and letterer Mike Fiorentino. A SPARK WITHIN THE FORGE will be the second graphic novel in a three volume prequel series that will explore the pasts of beloved An Ember in the Ashes series characters.

Before they were torn asunder, Laia lived happily and quietly with her Nan, Pop, and brother Darin within the Scholar district of Martial-ruled Serra. Although Laia is afraid to venture outside her home due to the heavy Martial presence, Darin loves to explore all parts of their home city… even those that are forbidden.

A chance encounter with famed swordsmith Spiro Teluman, who sees in Darin a talent for forging weapons, leads him down a path that pulls him away from his family but towards hope for his people. Meanwhile, Laia is forced to take her brother’s place accompanying Pop to combat a dangerous illness spreading quickly through Serra. When Laia discovers a surprising cure, will she brave exposure and the heavily-patrolled streets so she can save the city and someone she loves?

Sabaa Tahir is the author of the An Ember in the Ashes series. She grew up in California's Mojave Desert at her family's eighteen-room motel. There, she spent her time devouring fantasy novels, raiding her brother's comic book stash, and playing guitar badly. She began writing while working nights as a newspaper editor. She likes thunderous indie rock, garish socks and all things nerd.

“A SPARK WITHIN THE FORGE illuminates the histories of some of EMBER's most beloved characters--Laia, Darin and Spiro Teluman. The story was one I'd thought of long ago when filling out these characters' histories. I never thought I'd get a chance to return to it, or to do a deep dive to figure out exactly how I wanted it to play out. Doing so, and working again with Nicole Andelfinger and Sonia Liao as well as the BOOM! team, has been such a treat,” said Tahir.

Nicole Andelfinger was crafting stories back when jelly shoes were cool. Since then, she's only continued to dwell in the realms of magic, monsters, and myth. When not changing her hair color or writing comics for some of her favorite franchises--such as Jim Henson’s Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, Regular Show, Rugrats, Steven Universe and more--she works a day job best described as 'emails'. She lives with her absolutely, most decidedly perfect cat in Los Angeles.

Sonia Liao is a comic book artist based in Westford, Massachusetts. After graduating from MICA with her BFA in Illustration, she completed an internship at Fablevision and began life as a freelance artist. She's done work for publishers such as BOOM! Studios, Sourcebook Fire, Red 5 Comics, and Global Tinker.

“I'm super excited to bring to life even more of An Ember in the Ashes' world and characters in a second graphic novel. The streets of Serra are as detailed and rife with history as the Martials' camps in the rainforest. Laia and Darin's stories are intertwined yet separate: two points of view that complement each other as much as they oppose one another. I hope the readers enjoy their story as much as I did when drawing them onto the page,” said Liao.

A SPARK WITHIN THE FORGE: AN EMBER IN THE ASHES GRAPHIC NOVEL is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ award-winning Archaia imprint, home to inspiring graphic novels such as Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut, Ryan North, and Albert Monteys; The Sacrifice of Darkness by Roxane Gay, Tracy Lynne-Oliver, and Rebecca Kirby; Big Black: Stand at Attica by Frank “Big Black” Smith, Jared Reinmuth, and Améziane, We Served the People by Emei Burell, New World by David Jesus Vignolli, About Betty’s Boob by Vero Cazot and Julie Rocheleau, and the upcoming Eighty Days by A.C. Esguerra, Better Angels: A Kate Warne Adventure by Jeff Jensen and George Schall, and The Short While by Jeremy Sorese, as well as licensed series including Lev Grossman’s The Magicians, Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, and Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: Coronation.

Print copies of A SPARK WITHIN THE FORGE: AN EMBER IN THE ASHES GRAPHIC NOVEL will be available for sale February 2022. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and Kindle.

Vampirella's 50th anniversary series goes out with a bang, with smashing sales for its issue #25 finale and the Daughter of Drakulon's hotly anticipated wedding to Dracula! Plus, the solo series debut of Vampi's nemesis Nyx kicks off strong!

Thanks to all of the creators involved, the support of fans, and confidence of retailers, Vampirella #25 jumped from the 20,000 copies mark up to 60,000 following FOC, aka "Final Order Cutoff." While Nyx saw similar leaps from the 11,000 range up to 30,000.

Dynamite is confident in the continued success of Vampirella story after it hits the stands, especially in anticipation of its continuation in the new title Vampirella/Dracula: Unholy this winter, and fans tracing backward after trying that title. In light of this, the final print run for the issue has been decided on 75,000 to make sure every existing fan of the character and newcomers won't miss out on this historic release.

It's not a fake out, not an imaginary story, the iconic vampiress is tying the knot following all the critically acclaimed storytelling crafted by writer Christopher Priest and a crew of artists including Ergün Gündüz, Giovanni Timpano, Julius Ohta, Willie Schubert, and a who's who of killer cover artists.

Fans of the Vampirella mythos have been tuning into the tales of Nyx for over 25 years as well. Born from Chaos - literally - she's been a thorn in Vampirella's side ever since. Nyx even killed Vampirella in the iconic Death & Destruction in 1996! Now for the first time, she's breaking out into her own title like many other beloved antiheroes in comics' past.

Chicago's resident professional wizard is back and ready for action in an all-new graphic novel set in the official Dresden Files continuity and exclusive to Dynamite, releasing in February.

Dresden Files creator Jim Butcher is back with his sixth original graphic novel, co-written by Mark Powers. They're joined by returning artist Joe Cooper (Bloodshot) and fan-favorite cover artist of the prose novel series, Chris McGrath.

Harry Dresden finds himself now working for the one and only Bigfoot. Three hard to find short stories are reimagined and interwoven with additional wholly new material to come together into a thrilling new tale. Readers of the saga of Dresden will not want to miss this essential chapter in the character's ongoing saga.

"Bigfoot hasn't gotten nearly enough attention since we stopped trying to find him every season on Animal Planet, and I feel that needs correcting post haste," said writer Jim Butcher. "As I've often said before, I mostly see the Dresden Files in my head as drawn animation, and I deeply enjoy seeing my often-ridiculous imagination coalesce into imagery that other people can enjoy too!"

Jim Butcher is the New York Times bestselling author and creator of the Dresden Files franchise. The Dresden books have sold millions of copies combined, as well as translated to graphic novels, roleplaying games, and a 2007 television series. To date there are 17 novels in the universe, plus assorted short stories.

Dresden Files: Bigfoot features 120 pages of full color graphic novel storytelling for $24.99 in hardcover format. Collectors can also opt for a limited edition signed by Jim Butcher himself.

Welcome to Hell... Sonja. The fan-favorite breakout star of the mythos boundary-blasting Sonjaversal is breaking out in a fiery hot new title ready to warm up fans this winter!

She's the Queen of Damnation, lording over the fire-scorched pits of eternal hunger and suffering. But Hell Sonja has had enough of all this boring evil. She's binding together lost souls, other Red Sonja's of the multiverse, and will scour time and space to find the most wicked to feed to her endless realm's churning maw. For those desperate enough and beset by evil, when no one else can help, perhaps Hell Sonja will be their surprising savior!

Writer Christopher Hastings (Unbelievable Gwenpool, Deadpool) and artist Pasquale Qualano (Dejah Thoris) reunite to chronicle the tales of the latest breakout star in the Red Sonja mythos. She's now set up a multiversal bounty hunting operation, assembling teams of Sonja's to accost the most dangerous villains across the multiverse. Each issue will feature a new world and villain to be taken on. In addition to the title-star, the series also includes Blue Sonja, Moon Sonja, Gold Sonja, and of course the beloved classic Red Sonja.

"It's the A-Team meets Hellraiser across a span of wildly different fantasy and sci-fi worlds, care of an elite squad of multiversal Red Sonja alternates," said writer Christopher Hastings. "Easily the most metal thing I've ever worked on."

Beyond the beautiful, action-packed interiors by Qualano, colorist Kike J. Diaz, the series is fronted by a talented team of cover artists. Dynamite depictions of demons would be incomplete without the incomparable Lucio Parrillo. Other fan-favorites answering Hell Sonja's call include Jae Lee, Junggeun Yoon, and Joseph Michael Linsner. Last but certainly not least, fan-favorite Gracie the Cosplay ...

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 ...
