Dawn / Vampirella 6 Issue Crossover Event Coming in 2014 From Dynamite

Historic Dawn / Vampirella Event Series Features First-Ever Dawn Crossover for 25th Anniversary

Dawn / Vampirella

Dynamite Entertainment announced a first ever Dawn / Vampirella crossover miniseries, with covers by Joseph Michael Linsner, to be released in early 2014.

 

Press Release

Dynamite is proud to announce that the acclaimed Joseph Michael Linsner will, for the first time ever, launch a crossover event sharing the spotlight between his beloved creator-owned heroine Dawn and the comic book horror icon Vampirella.  Dedicated fans of the two femme fatales can enjoy the six-issue Dawn / Vampirella series when it debuts in early 2014, featuring a whimsical script and breathtaking covers by Linsner himself.

In Dawn / Vampirella, a ten-headed demon named Ravana tricks Dawn and Vampirella, snatching them away and holding them hostage.  With the two most beautiful women in all worlds at his mercy, Ravana wishes to select one as a mate to usher in a new age.  Rather than a challenge of physical prowess, the ladies choose a more sophisticated and feminine contest, facing each other instead in a competition of storytelling prowess.  If Dawn wins, the new age will be one of light.  If Vampirella wins, it will be an age of darkness.  Together, they take Ravana to the bloody shores of Drakulon, to post-apocalyptic New York, and to worlds beyond his wildest dreams.  Ultimately, the ladies know that they must join forces to overcome him… but what common ground can be found between Goddess and Vampire?

It’s LIGHTS OUT at DC Comics in October 2013!

Green Lantern Goes LIGHTS OUT

in October!

Green Lantern #24

DC Comics goes LIGHTS OUT in October 2013 in their Green Lantern titles.

 

According to DC Comics, the Lights Out crossover event that begins in October and spans the entire Green Lantern Universe, will change it forever!… Or at least what forever means in comic book terms these days.

Here is the press release from DC and several preview pages from Green Lantern #24 with art by Billy Tan.

 

Press Release

This October, “Lights Out” will span across all of the GREEN LANTERN family titles. And earlier this week, Relic’s Villains Month one-shot hit stores and set the stage for this epic crossover event that will change the Green Lantern universe forever.

“There are seven different colors of the emotional spectrum, each of them represented by their own corps. Green Lanterns wear rings powered by will, Red Lanterns rage, Yellow Lanterns fear, and so on,” GREEN LANTERN writer Robert Venditti explained. “For reasons none of the Lanterns are sure of, the rings have been malfunctioning lately. Enter Relic, a remnant of the universe before ours, who thinks he knows what’s wrong with the rings and has a solution. Unfortunately, ridding the universe of every last Lantern is part of that solution.”

H’EL ON EARTH: An Essay On DC’s Super Crossover

Keeping Up With the Kryptonians:
A Family Reunion?

H'el on Earth crossover promo

I have cable TV. I grew up with cable TV. I watch too much cable TV. And if you watch cable TV like I watch cable TV, you know that some of the better movie channels go through cycles of playing the same shit over and over for weeks on end. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the eyes and ears is the same serving of Meryl Streep sullenly walking through the West Village of New York, or Bruce Willis breaking through glass windows in bare feet bellowing “yippee ka-yay”. Sure I like sitting down for a good film viewing with a bowl of popcorn and some Red Vines, but many times I watch the same movie over a matter of weeks, while getting ready for work, or maybe during the 15 minutes before the Daily Show comes on. It’s the way of our cable subscribing, ADD world.
