May 11, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Available only on Indiegogo right now, Dynamite's deluxe 600 page behemoth of Elvira's long lost 1990s comic book tales is ending soon!
Stuffed with over 26 (26.666 to be exact!) issues of the long running beloved title originally published by Claypool Comics, the first omnibus volume includes stories from top creators like Kurt Busiek, Paul Dini, Richard Howell, Dave Cockrum, Mary Jo Duffy, and many more.
The stories within this ghastly tome are filled with the patented mix of campy horror and comedy that has endeared fans to Elvira for 40 years and counting. She tangles up with all manner of macabre monsters, Hollywood shenanigans, and satirizes the pop culture and even comics of the era like Todd McFarlane's smash hit Spawn. Each writer and artist brings their own flavor to the table, for an endless buffet of fun.
The Indiegogo campaign comes to a close at the Witching Hour, right around midnight on Thursday May 13. The campaign has been a massive success so far, with over 720 fans already pledging their support and reserving their copies. To reward these early adopters and dedicated collectors, Dynamite has already unlocked five stretch goals and there are more to come! These extra goodies are not scheduled to be available following the end of the campaign.
Every backer of the Indiegogo will be getting a sweet bookmark to mark their entry into the "Bloodcurdling Book Club." It will come in handy to save one's place in the middle of all the amazing tales collected in the titanic tome. Anyone going for the hardcover edition of the book will now be receiving a limited edition dust jacket featuring the Mistress of the Dark. Fans are also getting a trading card, a sticker, and a mini print. Could there be more to come..? Of course there will, check the campaign for the latest $66,666 stretch goal!
