As the summer heats up, Dynamite Entertainment has announced that Elvira, the legendary Mistress of the Dark is busting out with a brand-new comic book tale for her fiendish fans in Elvira: The Wrath of Con.
“If you’re like me, and I know you are exactly like me (wink), you’re missing the wonderfully wacky world of San Diego Comic Con this summer,” said Elvira. “I mean where else can you go dressed like this and feel normal. So since conventions are still DOA, I’m bringing the show to you, my sweeet darlings!”
“I’ve been a regular at San Diego Comic Con since 1989… (I was, um, five years old, let’s say…) and it’s always a big part of my summer,” added writer David Avallone. “Missing it two years in a row has been a bummer, and this comic felt like a great way to honor the wonderful experience we’re all missing, and poke a little affectionate fun at it as well. San Diego aside, I hope this story will be a delight for anyone who’s ever gone to any convention… even for anyone who’s ever been a devoted fan of anything. Fans make everything we do possible, and I get to wake up every morning and do this dream job — writing comic books — purely from their support and generosity. So this one is for them.”
“We’ve all missed Comic Cons, but now you can get a taste of the madness with none other than Elvira as your escort,” said artist David Acosta. “I’m so happy to team up with David, Walter, Taylor, and of course Cassandra, once again, in a direct sequel to last year’s Omega Ma’am.. Drawing that project was a dream come true for me, and now, we will deliver the mother of all sequels with Wrath of Con! ”
Haven’t you always wanted to go to Comic Con with Elvira? Well, with her “Diabolical Double D” creative partners of writer David Avallone (Bettie Page, Drawing Blood) and artist Dave Acosta (Dragon), she’s whipped up a fun-filled original story to get everyone through this summer sans San Diego!
In her new story, Elvira is the Guest of Horror at the “San Diego Popculturama” convention. The only problem is, an army of angry maniacs want her head on a platter! In a tale featuring cosplay, celebrity, back issue hunting, and… ritual cult murder – THE WRATH OF CON is not to be missed!
The 48-page comic is available to order now via Kickstarter.
