Timed to coincide with the celebration of legendary heroine Barbarella's 55th anniversary, Dynamite Entertainment is pleased to announce that the iconic character's first-ever American comic series, and first new comic series in more than 35 years, is now set to feature the critically-acclaimed artistic stylings of Turkish artist Kenan Yarar (Hilal). Yarar joins writer Mike Carey (X-Men, Lucifer, The Girl with All the Gifts), and longtime Barbarella brand custodian and consulting editor Jean-Marc Lofficier, on the revolutionary new series slated for release this December!



"When I was first told of Dynamite Editor Matt Idelson's Barbarella project, I thought it was fascinating," says artist Kenan Yarar. "Even though Barbarella is unruly, bold, attractive and sexually appealing, she wasn't objectified and she has a strange universe that may lead to countless eccentric worlds. The thing that compelled me to absolutely take part in this project was reading Mike Carey's script. The script was masterful and enjoyable in addition to having a solid philosophy and subtext to be the answer if someone bothered to ask me what kind of a comic book I'd like to work on as an artist. Also, the script demanded costumes, weapons, ships and worlds to be redesigned; the kind of work I delight in. I hope to present the script and Barbarella to Dynamite readers as fine and sophisticated as they truly are."

Kenan Yarar was born in 1970 in Kayseri, Turkey. When he was one-year old, Yarar's family moved to Istanbul where he continued his formal education through high school. At that point, he willingly decided to cease his formal education since it was weary and inadequate for his artistic and penciling skills which were already noticed. Yarar looked at several media to channel his art. Although he got many jobs as a graphic designer and cartoonist, his sequential art tendency was noticed by comic book masters in every newspaper he worked at. Yarar got almost all the support and sequential art training at that era in his life. When he was 21, his comic works started to be published in small magazines. Soon after that his stories and art style caught interest and along with increasing sales trend for monthly and weekly publications he started to regularly create comic work. The most important character created by Yarar is Hilal, a beautiful and rebellious girl with school problems which has the devil stalking her ever in disguise. He also penciled short stories and Tales of Psychosis in which he illustrated dark stories of urban life and urban people dramas and absurdities. Kenan Yarar has been writing and illustrating comic books regularly for the last 25 years. He lives in an apartment which he uses as a home studio and shares it with a crow, a pigeon and a cat.

Created by Jean Claude Forest in 1962, Barbarella was introduced at the heart of the Sexual Revolution, and is forever ingrained in pop culture after Jane Fonda's unforgettable portrayal in the 1968 cult-classic film. She was a key figure in the fertile battleground of French comic books and the struggle for sexual freedom in the medium, and has not appeared in a new series since her last appearance in the legendary science fiction publication, Heavy Metal.

"I'm really excited to be working with Kenan Yarar," says writer Mike Carey. "He's an artist with an exuberant, dazzling, playful style that's perfect for the book - and he's a great collaborator, always coming up with left-field solutions to narrative problems."

"I am delighted with the selection of Kenen Yarar, says Barbarella consulting editor Jean-Marc Lofficier. "His preliminary sketches have shown both a spirit and a style that brings a new life into the character; it is faithful without being imitative."

"The first time I saw Kenan's art, my jaw just dropped," says Matt Idelson, senior editor for Dynamite. "His work is extraordinary, and it straddles an impossibly fine line between the utterly fantastical while staying grounded and keeping you in the story. The level of detail and thought he brings to everything he draws, be it from the real world or the world of the imagination is remarkable. I knew he had to draw the book from that first moment."

"We are extremely proud to not only be the first publisher to bring the iconic character back to print in more than 35 years, but to be the premiere American publisher to have the honor in Barbarella's history," says Dynamite CEO/Publisher Nick Barrucci. "To be able to work together with the incredible talents of Mike Carey, now combined with the artistic brilliance of Kenan Yarar, we're certain we've brought in the perfect team to do her legacy justice. I cannot thank Jean-Marc and the estate enough for bestowing this honor on us."

Dynamite Entertainment first announced the return of Barbarella to comic books in October of 2016, welcoming the sci-fi icon to their stable of strong female heroines alongside Red Sonja, Vampirella, Sheena, Dejah Thoris (of Warlord of Mars), and more. In July 2017, Dynamite Entertainment announced visionary writer Mike Carey would helm the new series, to rave review! In addition to this original comic book stories, Dynamite plans to develop Barbarella in further categories which include potential art books and 3D figurines.

Barbarella will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' October 2017 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in December. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of Barbarella #1 with their local comic book retailers. Barbarella #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.

Marvel’s Armored Avenger takes off for new adventures this October in IRON MAN #1! The new hard-hitting run will be written by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Spencer Ackerman (Reign of Terror; DC’s Waller vs. Wildstorm) in his exciting Marvel debut. Ackerman will be joined by rising star Julius Ohta (Hellverine, Alien). Following today’s conclusion of Gerry Duggan’s Invincible Iron Man, Tony Stark is back on top after regaining control of his company, armor, and confidence. He’s determined to never hit rock bottom again, so when familiar threats like Roxxon and A.I.M. resurface, they’ll be met by an Iron Man more than willing to fight back, play dirty, and unleash every bit of his intellect to bring them down! When the best of his own technology fails him, Tony will build a brand-new armor unlike any seen in his over 60-year history. Dubbed the “Improvised Iron Man,” fans will see it assembled throughout the series as Tony does what he does best—tinkering and upgrading it to counter anything the world throws at him. The series will also debut a new Iron Monger, complete with a mysteriously-powered new armor… Roxxon and A.I.M. team up to take on Stark Unlimited! But they’re ready for the old Tony Stark. This one? He’s a lot angrier than he used to be. Iron Man is going to war! New armor, old enemies, and unbelievable twists abound in this fresh take on a fury-powered Iron Man! "Winning a Pulitzer is cool and all, but it's not writing for Marvel Comics,” Ackerman shared. “And to write IRON MAN is a very specific dream come true. A lot of comics' best creators have used Iron Man to tell big stories about security and freedom – with a whole lot of super hero action, of course – and I can't wait to build on their legacy." On how his esteemed career in journalism prepared him to take on Tony Stark’s specific complexities, Ackerman added, “In my day job reporting on national security, I've covered the real-life equivalents of the Stark Expo, watched experimental weapons in action, seen their impact on human beings, and tracked the massive wealth they generate for a select few. Tony struggles with challenges – and is sure about to struggle with challenges – that I've covered for years. Only now I can write about them the way I've always wanted to: in a super hero universe!" Check out the main cover by Yasmine Putri and preorder IRON MAN #1 at your local comic shop today.

Dynamite is excited to announce Dynamite Originals, a brand new imprint debuting first on Kickstarter with a heavy-hitting roster of creators taking on the company's flagship character — Vampirella! This new label will feature unique visions and innovative collaborations with the biggest creators in comics of today and tomorrow. It all starts with Vampirella: Black, White & Blood live on Kickstarter now!

This prestige anthology project is a close collaboration with Arancia Studio, known for its juggernaut leader Mirka Andolfo (Sweet Paprika, Mercy, Harley Quinn). Some of the most exciting rising stars of the Italian studio join today's biggest names in American comics on this star-studded special release. The whole book sports a stunning black-and-white palette, with splashes of red to really show off the artwork in these three tantalizing tales. It's the ultimate spotlight on the character and an international team-up of the comics craft.

"I couldn't be more thrilled about this book," said creator Mirka Andolfo. "Vampirella is such an iconic character…I had the pleasure of drawing her before, but this is my first time writing her. And I really hope it's not my last, because I had a lot of fun, also because I was surrounded by phenomenal creators! You're going to see some great things...”

Andolfo's creative and business partner Davide G.G. Caci added, “When, with our friends at Dynamite, we started talking about a Black, White & Blood special for Vampirella, we knew right away that we were on the same page. It was amazing to see how everyone — their team, our team, our editor Davide Morando, and of course, all the creators — were on the same page. At Arancia, we love to create creative bridges, and this special issue is something to be proud of: extraordinary American and European artists and writers teaming up to tell some stories starring a unique character.”

Andolfo leads the way with a fascinating fable with a meta twist. In "Redefining Shadows," she and artist Greta Xella depict the most unlikely team-up for the Daughter of Drakulon. The story spotlights the Daughter of Drakulon as a guardian, her goals of retribution, her dreams, and judgment. Vampirella can be many things depending on the role one views her as within her story. But whoever you choose to be, hope you never become the object of her savage hunt!

In "Undercover" by Tim Seeley (Nightwing, Hack/Slash) and Zulema Scotto Lavina the Drakulonian antiheroine is accused of a series of violent murders. To clear her name, she goes undercover, embedding herself in a gang of vicious vampire hunters. In her quest to track down the mystery killer and protect her own kind, she may discover the culprit could be someone close to her heart.

Last but certainly not least, "The Ballad of Blind Love" features the work of Steve Orlando (Wonder Woman, Midnighter) and Alessandro Amoruso, and depicts a love story like no other. A powerful mob boss is desperately in love with Vampirella and will do anything to win her over. Misinterpreting her character and reactions, he starts bringing increasingly heinous sacrifices to garner her affection. It will take a dark turn when she demands of him the ultimate sacrifice...

Not to be outdone by the stories within, this project demanded a set of jaw-dropping covers by top names to deliver a perfect package to fans. Mirka Andolfo of course contributes one of course for the title she and her team are driving artistically. She's joined by superstars Stjepan Šejic, Jae Lee, and Joseph Michael Linsner. Each of these covers will be available as standard covers, chrome editions, and metal editions, plus fans will have the option to get them signed or CGC graded. And there will be options to get all four covers bundled together for a special collector’s price.
