August 17, Mt. Laurel, NJ: As the days grow shorter and the cool weather comes, this November Dynamite is gifting fans with two exciting holiday specials featuring Vampirella and Red Sonja.
The She-Devil With a Sword's tale is not to be missed, as the exciting new ongoing writing team of superstar Mirka Andolfo (Sweet Paprika, Mercy) and Luca Blengino present a special story that fits right into their yarn. Rising artist Zulema Lavina (The Little Mermaid) draws the story. Sonja is not usually the type for cheerful festivities, but with her recent "adoption" of the mysterious child Sitha, her usual cold walls have temporarily melted a bit. But will outside forces be able to prod and pillage, putting a pause on the partying?
Writer/artist Will Robson (Fantastic Four) shepherds Vampirella in her holiday escapade. She's being haunted by "The Spirits of Christmas," a clan of hunters with a twisted tradition of tracking down mythical creatures to kill each Christmas Eve. Is Vampi prepared for an evening against the battle-ready manifestations of the Past, Present and Future?
Each issue features three covers. Mirka Andolfo and Will Robson contribute covers to their respective issues. While artist Joseph Michael Linsner and cosplayer Rachel Hollon each have two covers across both specials.
The VAMPIRELLA 2021 HOLIDAY SPECIAL and RED SONJA 2021 HOLIDAY SPECIAL are solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ September 2021 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in November 2021. Comic book fans are encouraged to preorder copies of the issues with their local comic book retailers. They will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, ComicsPlus, and more!
