Celebrating Vampirella’s 45th anniversary! In FEAST OF SHADOWS, the first in the six-part OUR LADY OF SHADOWS story arc. Vampirella is sent by the Vatican to investigate the kidnapping of a little girl by Ethan Shroud and the Chaos cultists, only to become the centerpiece of a ritual invoking Lady Umbra, the sister-bride of Chaos, that leaves her marked as a living sacrifice to the dark goddess who rules the shadows. VAMPIRELLA is back and returns to her horror roots with Bram Stoker Award-winning author Nancy A. Collins (Swamp Thing, Sunglasses After Dark, Jason vs. Leatherface) and Patrick Berkenkotter (Avengers/Invaders, Red Sonja).

Four months have passed since the events depicted in Dead Beat, Jim Butcher's New York Times-bestselling 7th novel in the Dresden Files series. A war is raging between the vampire forces of the Red Court and the White Council—a war the wizards are losing. So desperate are the Council that they've dragooned the experienced and the outcast to reinforce their thinning ranks of Wardens. One of these draftees is one Harry Dresden, Chicago's only wizard for hire and a guy who's long been looked upon with suspicion by the supernatural authorities. Now, he's one of them, and his first big mission as a Warden is a doozy: take a small team of greenhorns to a frigid town in the middle of nowhere to rescue a handful of mortals who've been targeted by the Red Court. The question is, why exactly are these particular mortals so crucial to the outcome of the war? The answer will come only if Harry can keep them, and his team, alive for one very long night. An all new, original Dresden Files story featuring stunning artwork from Carlos Gomez, and covers by the amazing Stjepan Sejic!

CHAOS!!!! So glad to see these picked up again! I just wish Lady Death was a part of it, being the central character in the universe. Hopefully they do it justice!

Is that Tim Seely any good? I seem to be seeing his name lot in comics lately. Also, thank goodness Vampi is back! Can Miss Fury be far behind?

Some of these series look pretty good...I might have to get into more Dynamite. I already read Red Sonja and enjoy that for the most part.

So many boobs in Dynamite.

Dynamite puts out quality stories- why do they do this umpteen multiple covers stuff? It gluts the back issue bins later, and it ensures that no cover will ever be a classic.

I've just fallen in love with Red Sonja!

Edited by LyraFay

I want to read Red Sonja had it on my wishlist for weeks! Maybe I should order the first trade!

Totally blank cover eh? Well it worked for the Beatles. And a recreation of an old Robot Fighter cover, sweet.

Turok is awesome so far. Pak is great.

@jonny_anonymous: thanks homeboy. I read his hack/slash from 2003. Actually, I shouk d say I'm still trying to power read through it but its good to hear that his work has improved the last 10plus years!

I'm getting chaos, vampi, spektor, blood queen, dejah, six and I'm kinda on and off magnus and twighlight zone. :D

@bladewolf: The 'summaries' are in indented/bold print. Looks like it stands out to me when I look at the page.

That's true, but they're placed irregularly (i.e. not always under the first cover, not always under the last cover). Also, I was mostly making a joke about how many variants there are :)

@cbishop: I agree 100‰ about the no classic covers. Remember when there was only 1 cover per issue? And it was done by the interior artist? And it actually showed what was going on inside instead of being a pinup? Me either...

If someone wants to homage Action #1, Detective #27, Fantastic Four #1, or hell, even New Teen Titans #1, then you have a decent idea what that cover is going to look like. There's even an Action #1 homage in the variant covers shown above. But if someone wants to homage Dynamite's Green Hornet #1, which cover are they going to use for that homage? And would anyone recognize it? Who can agree on a favorite, when there's fifteen different versions of the cover? For Madame Masque #1, which is the classic? The Alex Ross cover? Or the one that's drawn to look like the 1940's? If there's only one cover to choose from, then yeah, it's pass/fail for grabbing the buyer's attention, but the "pass" covers will be remembered, and someday, probably homaged.

I just think Dynamite wastes a lot of money on printing variant covers, as did a few companies before them, and this has trickled into Marvel, DC, and even Archie for crying out loud. Occasionally, I see a variant cover I want and I'll get it, but not because I have to have every cover- just because I liked it. But overall, with Dynamite, I wait for the trades, if anything...that's assuming the story makes it to trade.

I hope this new Vampirella series is better than the last. The last had so much potential in the first 17 issues, then it fell flat and got weird.

@indiecomicsftw: You were wanting to check out Vampirella, new series and new writer. Might be worth a peak=)

Maybe, I still need to finish my Shadow Collection, and I been thinking of picking up, if anything, more Image titles. I need to complete my Street Fighter titles, complete my Ultimates ($100 there), and Angel (the best Vampire ever).

So I am screwed till next year anyway :/ Also contrary to popular belief, I am a Graphic Novel person, I have only a hand full of Comics lol. I like buying Hard Cover Graphic Novels or Omnibuses for a full story.

Wow. Dynamite has a lot of properties I didn't realize it had. I mostly stick with my DC stuff and am struggling to understand what's happening at Marvel too, so I really don't know much of anything about any of the other publishers. My understanding is that most of these properties are classic comics or TV properties that have been around long before the dawn of the Dynamite publisher and have bounced around form publisher to publisher. I'm looking at stuff like Vampirella, John Carter, The Shadow, Red Sonja, Doc Savage, Green Hornet, etc. My next question is- why do characters like Green Hornet, The Shadow, and John Carter not currently have solo ongoing series. And their omission makes me think that there are other properties Dynamite holds that are not represented here. Is that the case?
