June 14, Mt. Laurel, NJ: The streets of New York City run red as a mysterious organization strangles its systems, urging Masquerade and the Scarlet Sisters to unite once more, in a thrilling one-shot coming this September from writer Alex Segura.
A cult-like force has infested their city, taking control of both criminal and political power, and the Scarlet Sisters are called upon to solve this twisted puzzle. Joined by their red threads and shared thirst for justice, Masquerade, Lady Satan, and the Woman in Red form a deadly trio of crimefighters and detectives. When one of their own allies is murdered, the case gets all the more muddled.
Acclaimed author Alex Segura is no stranger to noir and crime tradition, from his hit independent comic The Black Ghost, to the recently released novel Secret Identity, which inventively blends mystery with fictional tales of the comic book industry. For Scarlet Sisters, he's joined by rising artist Emiliana Pinna (Red Sonja) for his Dynamite debut.
"I've known [editor] Nate Cosby forever - since we both started in comics - and I've always wanted to work with him. His books always feature great characters, strong creative voices, and a level of quality I appreciate. When he asked me about pitching a one-shot in the Dynamite universe featuring the Scarlet Sisters, I was intrigued. Emiliana and I have crafted a street-level, character-driven crime tale that will hopefully leave readers intrigued and eager for more."
To match the trio of heroines, three additional brilliant artists have joined the case with their covers. Lesley "Leirix" Li, Joseph Michael Linsner, and the rising star Jacob Edgar each lend their hand.
