Dynamite Entertainment Partners with Visionbooks


Dynamite Entertainment is all about special editions and paying homage to their characters. They're doing a little bit of both in partnering with Visionborne on a special edition release of Vampirella: Feary Tales. The series is featured on the Visionbooks platform in a new format that showcases movement and visual effects in every panel of the comic book. Vampirella: Feary Tales celebrates Vampirella's 45th Anniversary with five issues of twisted tales, bizarre bedtime stories and fearsome fables in the tradition of the original Warren magazines, each featuring everyone's favorite sexy, kick-ass vampire-turned-monster hunter.

"It's been really cool to see Vampirella come to life with Visionbooks' technology," says Dynamite Director of Business Development Rich Young. "We are excited to be working with them and think fans of the character will enjoy these comics."

In Feary Tales, Nancy A. Collins, assembled a team of today's most accomplished writers to contribute "twisted tales, bizarre bedtime stories, and fearsome fables" in the tradition of the classic Warren Vampirella magazine publications. The anthology is held together by a unique, cohesive framework which grants freedom of creative storytelling for contributing talents Gail Simone, Stephen R. Bissette, Elmo Eklabuz, Ronilson Freire, Devin Grayson, Jack Jadson, Joe R. Lansdale, Elaine Lee, Stuart Moore, Steve Niles, John Shirley, Denis St. John and Eric Trautmann.

"With our technology, we wanted to bring something new, engaging and dynamic to the world of comics. Thanks to our collaboration with Dynamite, we can push the envelope even further in bringing to life one of the most iconic characters in the comic universe: Vampirella," remarks Visionbooks co-founder, Simone Offredo.
