July 17, Mt. Laurel, NJ: The Vampirella Poster Book allows fans to enjoy some of their favorite covers of the Daughter of Drakulon at an increased size and free of logos.
2019 is the Year of Vampirella, celebrating her big 50th anniversary, and Dynamite has made it their mission to spoil Vampirella fans as much as possible across countless new series, reprints, collectibles and more. One great way to celebrate her indelible impact on the comics landscape is a showcase of 24 of the greatest Vampirella covers ever! All at a beautiful 12 by 16 inches poster size on heavy cardstock paper, easily removed from the book that can alternately serve as an art book. Tack up your favorites, give some to your fellow Vampi fans or line an entire Vampirella room with them!
The artists spotlighted in the poster book include Frank Cho, Alex Ross, Joe Jusko, Adam Hughes, Stanley "Artgerm" Lau, Fay Dalton, Guillem March, Derrick Chew, Tyler Kirkham, Warren Louw, Joshua Middleton, Gabriele Dell'Otto, Joseph Michael Linsner, Billy Tucci, Terry Dodson, Jenny Frison, J. Scott Campbell, Lucio Parrillo, Jee-Hyung Lee, Milo Manara, Adam Hughes, Art Adams and Jay Anacleto. A truly unparalleled assembly of talent!
"As both a publisher and a fan, we've been beyond blessed to have some of the greatest cover artists of all time contribute pieces to the Vampirella legacy!," said Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher. "Picking just one image from each artist and even narrowing the list down to 24 artists - when we originally planned for 20 - was incredibly difficult. We hope fans will appreciate our selections and who knows, there are plenty of covers left..."
The Vampirella Poster Book will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ August 2019 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in October 2019. Comic book fans are encouraged to preorder copies with their local comic book retailers.
