Dynamite Entertainment’s “LEGENDERRY: VAMPIRELLA #1” to debut in Box of DreadBooks/Art/Culture,News Ken W. Hanley
Not too long ago, FANGORIA reported on the impending reboot of the RE-ANIMATOR Comic Series, but it seems that’s Herbert West isn’t the only horror hero being given a second life by Dynamite Comics! Popular horror site Dread Central announced today that they’re partnering to bring the very first issue of Dynamite’s VAMPIRELLA reboot series exclusively to their monthly Box of Dread.
With an exclusive collectible cover illustrated by artist Roberto Castro, Dynamite’s return to Bill Willingham’s VAMPIRELLA universe in LEGENDERRY: VAMPIRELLA #1 will only be available in Dread Central’s Box of Dread. “It’s an honor to have Dynamite Entertainment on board with our Box of Dread initiative,” says Steve Barton of Dread Central, “and we couldn’t think of a finer way to kick off Women in Horror Month than this!”
There’s no denying that LEGENDERRY: VAMPIRELLA #1 definitely sports a gorgeous cover, and will be a sought-after collectible among horror comic fans. However, this writer does wonder if maybe there’s a better way for Dread Central to kick off Women in Horror Month than to put the comic book of a fictional scantily-clad female character inside of their pay subscription box service. I’m sure fictional female characters everywhere will be empowered by their action, but maybe the living, breathing women in the horror genre might want some respect for their oft-exploited work, too.
