This must-have edition showcases the work of all the fantastic artists who have put pen to paper (or brush to canvas) for the blood-thirsty beauty. The second volume picks up where the original Art of Vampirella: The Dynamite Years left off. The key runs encapsulated within include the fan-favorite 2014 relaunch by horror scribe Nancy A. Collins, the breathtaking Roses for the Dead limited series from Joseph and Kristina Linsner, and the redefining stretches from Kate Leth, Paul Cornell, and Jeremy Whitley.
The all-star cast of artists celebrated in this deluxe hardcover include Terry Dodson, Jenny Frison, Art Adams, Jay Anacleto, Joe Jusko, Mike Mayhew, Joseph Michael Linsner, Philip Tan, Billy Tucci, Chrissie Zullo, Robert Hack, Jimmy Broxton, Stephanie Buscema, Sergio Davila, Johnny Desjardins, David Roach, and countless others!
This is the perfect companion to not just the first volume, but also the Vampirella 50th Anniversary Art Book. All three complement each other and bring fans' art book collection up to the present ongoing Vampirella titles. With a 50 year plus history of employing the greatest artists in comics and fantasy/horror art, these art books belong on the shelves of every fan for a complete archive of each masterpiece through the years.
The ART OF VAMPIRELLA: THE DYNAMITE YEARS VOLUME 2 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ September 2020 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in November 2020.
