Dynamite Entertainment is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Vampirella this July with a brand new ongoing series for the iconic comic book character, and the publisher has announced a bumper 130,000 copy print run for Vampirella #1, making it the largest debut title in the publisher’s history.
“We cannot express enough how appreciative we are for the support from fans, retailers as well as support from retailers outside of the direct market and talent who have created covers for their own sales,” said Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher. “We knew we had a great creative team on this title with the incredible Christopher Priest being complemented by the lush art of Ergün Gündüz, and breathtaking covers to match. The 50th Anniversary will only happen once, so everything had to be perfect. Everyone from the creative team, editorial and sales & marketing worked hard together at all levels to make this a success. It’s incredibly gratifying to get such a welcoming response back.”
