June 25, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Two titans of terror collide in Dynamite's latest spooky comic book series, ELVIRA MEETS VINCENT PRICE! For super fans of the two icons, Dynamite, Elvira herself, Vincent's daughter Victoria Price, and artist Juan Samu have all teamed up to present a stunning limited edition variant cover of the first issue, and it's only available on Indiegogo right now!
"Vincent was the consummate horror icon, who was beloved by millions of fans. And, yours truly was the biggest fan of them all!," said the Mistress of the Dark herself. "Back when this Mistress was just a 'Miss,' Vincent introduced me to the wacky world of Hollywood horror. His films and television shows were essential viewing for late night creature feature fanatics."
Victoria Price added, "My father loved Elvira. His face always lit up when she was around. And he felt a true kindred spirit, through the love of all things scary. He was an icon of the horror genre for decades, and I think he was happy that Elvira was picking up the mantle he had worked so hard to develop over the years. So many generations of fans looked to Vincent as the friendly face of frights and all things Halloween, and Elvira carried on that tradition."
In preparing to draw the series, interior artist Juan Samu developed several sketches and portrayals of his two titular leads to hone his craft and get approval for the likeness and portrayals. The whole team was so impressed with one of these images, featuring both horror legends relaxed together around a couch, that it had to head over to colorist Walter Pereyra for the full treatment. And that brings us to this limited time campaign!
Fans and collectors can get this collectible comic in multiple variations. The standard edition is exactly as one would expect, while a "virgin" variation strips away the logos, and a third version pulls back most of the color to showcase Juan Samu's original drawing. Combo packs allow collectors to get all of them. While metal covers, CGC graded copies, and even a limited number signed by both Elvira and Victoria Price are also available! Those ultra-rare signatures are only available in this Indiegogo extravaganza!
