A zombie apocalypse is about to be unleashed upon the Dynamite Entertainment comic book universe this October with the launch of Die!namite, a new event series from writers Declan Shalvey (Deadpool vs. Old Man Logan) and zombie expert Fred Van Lente (Marvel Zombies) and artists Vincenzo Carratu (Lady Zorro) and Justin Mason (Vengeance of Vampirella), which promises to unite all of Dynamite’s hit characters like never before.
“This project is just fun, fun, fun,” said writer Declan Shalvey. “Getting to play with these icons – and in some cases, ripping them apart – is not quite the entertainment I was expecting to have this year. Pulp gets pulped in the R-rated Hollywood blockbuster of the Dynamite universe.”
“I’m excited to come on board as part of this Die!namite team. I always look forward to returning to the zombie realm,” said writer Fred Van Lente. “In addition to the masked undead, we’re also going to all sorts of new worlds — Barsoom, Draculon — as well as new eras, and encounter terrifying new creatures. As usual, I hope to bring equal measure of scares, gore and fun.”
Uniting all of Dynamite’s hit characters like never before, DIE!NAMITE crosses through time and space with a deadly zombie infection. While Peter Cannon and Tabu fight nefarious criminals and Vampirella flies through space on a Drakulonian ship, each discovers a brewing dark mystery. Soon, these heroes, Red Sonja, Dejah Thoris, Project Superpowers, and more will collide and come together to battle the biggest threat any of them have ever faced. And they aren’t guaranteed to survive the ordeal, in general, or specifically with certain limbs!
Die!namite #1 will go on sale in October 2020.
