September 13, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite is proud to announce that the upcoming Savage Tales: Winter Special is back with more thrilling tales of Dynamite's biggest stars as well as legends of the pulps.
This December's special will feature two up-and-coming artists and graduates of the prestigious Kubert School, Mariano Benitez Chapo and Hamish Munro-Cook. They’ll be teaming up with fan-favorite writers Scott Bryan Wilson (Pennyworth) and David Avallone (Elvira, Bettie Page) for two of the four tales in this action packed new one-shot that will be debuting with covers by Arthur Suydam, Liam Sharp and Rafael Kayanan.
Savage Tales is back with four tales of brutality, thrills and spills. The party starts with "Devil Juice" by Wilson and artist Max Fuchs (Altered Carbon: One Life One Death) as Vampirella's sister Draculina wants revenge on an enemy demon but has to go through a wall of body builders first.
Wilson then teams with Benitez Chapo for "Crypt Junkies" as Vampirella accompanies a TV crew when they open a 1,000-year-old sarcophagus… with bloody results.
Avallone and Munro-Cook bring us a new story of Captain Gulliver Jones and the savage world of Mars in "His War Chapter II." Then Avallone and artist Eman Casallos (Alice Cooper) take us to the dying world of Barsoom for more adventures with John Carter, Warlord of Mars and his mate Dejah Thoris.

Savage Tales is an anthology series that dates back to the early 1970s when it existed as a black-and-white comic-magazine starring Conan the Barbarian. It was an attempt by Marvel Comics to enter a field dominated by Warren Publishing with their titles Vampirella, Eerie and Creepy. Since 2007 Dynamite has shepherded this legacy title, with full-color sword and sorcery tales of Red Sonja, and then joined by other hit characters. Fans who have collected each variation to date will love to continue building their sets of Arthur Suydam's iconic homage covers.
SAVAGE TALES: WINTER SPECIAL is solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ October 2022 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in December 2022. Comic book fans are encouraged to preorder copies of the issue with their local comic book retailers. It will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, ComicsPlus, and more!
