July 15, Mt. Laurel, NJ:
Dynamite proudly announces a statue bust reproducing Stanley "Artgerm" Lau’s not-yet-released, yet already classic cover for Vampirella
This 7.5 inches tall high quality resin bust is Dynamite's most unique rendering of Vampi to date. Artgerm's haunting cover has been expertly translated to the third dimension by veteran sculptor Steve Kiwus. To then be meticulously hand-painted, right down to the heroine's bloody "outfit."
Dynamite already knew that anything Artgerm tackled would turn out spectacular, but the entire team jumped out of their shoes when they saw his latest sultry yet fierce take on the Daughter of Drakulon. When fans went wild following its reveal, everyone knew it just had to be brought off the page and onto the shelf! The pose and scale of the image was perfect for a bust. With the added bed of detailed three-dimensional skulls for a base, it turned out even better than expected! More detailed photos from the produced piece will be shared closer to release.
"It has been a wonderful experience working with Dynamite and contributing my first comic cover to Vampirella’s legacy. It’s even more exciting to see my art come to life with this bust format statue, which is a first for me," said artist Stanley "Artgerm" Lau. "For all Vampirella fans out there, I hope the statue will be a great addition to your collection and a reminder of how much you love this beautiful and deadly lady."
The bust is priced at only $89.99, allowing even more fans of both Artgerm and Vampirella to pick up this exceptionally striking collectible.
Not only is Dynamite releasing this collectible statue - there is also a new Artgerm Vampirella cover! This October's issue 4 will have a main cover by the superstar himself. Available as well in premium virgin and limited foil variations!
Hailing from Hong Kong, Stanley "Artgerm" Lau works in multiple roles across entertainment. With his Imaginary Friends Studios partners, Artgerm has worked with Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Dynamite Entertainment, Capcom, Square Enix and more on major products. Befitting his professional training and East-meets-West Hong Konger background, his style mixes elements of anime, video games and American comic books. His meteorically-rising fan base is spread all around the world and online.
