EXCLUSIVE: First Look At Dynamite's Vampirella #4 and Lord of the Jungle #5

Get a first look at the upcoming titles before they hit stores in April.

If Dynamite Entertainment is experienced in anything, it's in their ability to breathe new life into familiar fictional characters. In two of their most recent series they have done exactly that. Earlier today the publisher provided Comic Vine with an exclusive peek at the upcoming issues of LORD OF THE JUNGLE #5 and VAMPIRELLA VS. DRACULA #4.

In VAMPIRELLA VS. DRACULA writer Joe Harris continues to craft a story that will pit these two vampires against one another. Stuck in the past, Vampirella continues to seek a way out of the past and away from the wrath of the 'Order of the Dragon.' What will happen next?

Not to be outdone, writer Arvid Nelson continues to tackle a completely different genre in his re-telling of the story of Tarzan in LORD OF THE JUNGLE. In the series' fifth issue, Tarzan is still playing hero and Jane continues to feel torn over her love for the "Lord of the Jungle" and her desire to return to her former life. What will become of these two characters?

Check out the cover art to both issues below and let us know if either of these titles will be making it to your pull list. Both books will be available in stores this April, 2012.

DRACULA #432 pages FC • $3.99 • Teen +Written by JOE HARRISArt by IVAN RODRIGUEZCover by JOSEPH MICHAEL LINSNERAs the end of one cycle in his immortal saga draws near, Dracula finds his 19th century 'anchor' which he hopes might stop the repeating narrative he's longed to be free from forever. But he'll have his hands full, no doubt.

Hunted from all sides, she'll have to remind them all that she's a creature of the night all her own... and she's still got one hell of a bite!

Already sold on anything with Vampirella of course but this Lord of the Jungle business is actually looking pretty awesome, I should really start investing in more of Dynamite's books, I always just feel like they're not aimed at people who aren't familiar with the characters but I should try one before making that assumption
