June 22 Mt. Laurel, NJ: Jump in on the Virtua Metaverse and check out the two latest Dynamite releases for NFT collectors and fans. Vampirella shines in a jaw-dropping lithograph from the legendary artist Joe Jusko, then meet a multiversal variant of her in The Vamp!
In 1996 our dearly beloved Vampirella was pierced through the heart and killed by her nemesis Nyx. Before her resurrection and relaunch, the fan-favorite Blood Lust series was released. Across two oversized issues, James Robinson delves into the lore of Drakulon. What really makes the story shine though is the beautiful fully painted artwork by Joe Jusko. Beloved for his painted covers on titles like Savage Sword of Conan and the 1992 Marvel Masterpieces trading card set, the treat of full Jusko interior story pages is incredibly rare and Vampirella spoiled fans with it. Now one of the most iconic images from Blood Lust is offered as a limited edition NFT litho.
The multiverse concept is the rage right now, with some of the biggest blockbuster films and much smaller critically acclaimed fare tapping into this endlessly exciting idea. Vampirella is no stranger to the idea, going way back decades to the introduction of the anime and manga inspired Vampi spinoffs. Recently in the hit title Vampiverse, fan-favorite franchise writer Tom Sniegoski and Jeannine Acheson explored countless possible variants of the Daughter of Drakulon. One of the biggest standouts was The Vamp, a pulp inspired femme fatale take on our heroine. Fans were intrigued by her so much that she necessitated her own solo spotlight, and now you can get it as an NFT.
