Dynamite Entertainment Announces 'The Prophecy' - Major Crossover Event

What could possibly bring these characters together? If you guessed the 'end of the world,' you are correct!

Crossover events can be a mixed bag. When done well, they can be a blast. When done too often, we begin to roll our eyes, despite how epic they may sound. With the characters from Dynamite Entertainment, you don't really see too many crossovers. The characters pretty much exist in their own separate universes. To bring them together has to mean something huge is brewing. And that's exactly what it looks like.

Today, Dynamite has announced THE PROPHECY coming in June 2012.

That "..." suggests more info is coming, right? It sure is. Because it's 2012, the Mayan doomsday prophecy is coming to pass and that means the end of the world. Of course the heroes and characters won't just sit back and let it happen. They're going to band together to do something about it. That means we get quite the list of allies.

Vampirella, Red Sonja, Kulan Gath, Dracula, Eva, Herbert West The Reanimator, Alan Quatermain, Athena, Dorian Gray, Purgatory, Pantha and many more choose sides and clash in battles that will decide the fate of the Earth and all of mankind.

Sounds pretty crazy. Who would be best to write this story of the end of the world? How about Ron Marz, with Walter Geovani doing the art and Paul Renaud providing the covers?

== TEASER ==

Here's what Marz had to say:

I've written a fair number of crossover stories over my career, and one of the reasons I keep coming back to them is that they almost always end up being fun. There's something intrinsically comic-booky about a bunch of characters meeting for the first time. One of the attractions of Prophecy when it was offered to me was that we talked about embracing that aspect, the sensibility that a comic can still be fun, with big action moments as well as big characters moments. I'm really looking forward to getting to play with this bunch of characters.

In case you're a little unfamiliar with all the characters, here's a glimpse at some that will be taking part in this series.

Dorian Gray
Red Sonja

THE PROPHECY #1 lands in comic shops this June. Be sure to tell your local comic shop to reserve a copy for you.

Marz did a great job with the Artifacts crossover event so I think he'll do great with this one.
