A NEW DIRECTION FOR GOD IS DEAD #2510/18/14 @ 8:12 pm EST
Vampirella gains a new writer this July with Brandon Jerwa! In Brandon's first issue, #21, needs something else here as after here the "after" should start the new sentence. After the startling events of last issue, Vampirella's ready to put everything on the line in an attempt to save one soul and destroy another. Heroes and villains alike are playing toward their own endgame, and the cards are turning with a deadly quickness. We're not kidding when we say that BIG changes are coming, and it all starts here with Part 1 of INQUISITION! Be sure to pick up Vampirella at this great jumping-on point with issue #21!
"I've been a fan of Eric Trautmann's Vampirella since the first issue, and given our ongoing collaboration, this might be one of the easiest handoffs in the history of comics," says writer Brandon Jerwa. "Will my Vampirella book be different? Absolutely. Will I be undoing what has come before? No way. Dynamite has a great franchise here, and I'm going to do my best to turn the amps up to eleven!"
"Eric's told all the stories that he wanted to tell and it's been a great ride. He helped us re-introduce Vampirella and we have been very happy with his stories and we're sorry to see him go," adds Dynamite Entertainment President and Publisher Nick Barrucci. "But Brandon Jerwa has big plans for the series, and it's incredible! I don't want to give too much away but it's a great new direction and fans will be happy."
Brandon Jerwa's comic book career began in 2003, when he submitted a script to Devil's Due Publishing that was accepted, and was eventually published in G.I. Joe: Frontline #11-14. Soon afterwards, he became the main writer on G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero and also wrote several G.I. Joe miniseries. On May 18, 2006, Brandon was featured on episode #24 of the Game Show Network's I've Got a Secret; his secret being that in honor of his work on the G.I. Joe comics, Hasbro used his face as the basis for the G.I. Joe action figure Dragonsky. In 2006 and 2007, Jerwa began writing for Dynamite Entertainment, working on the series Highlander, co-writing the first four issues with Michael Avon Oeming before moving on to a prolific run on Battlestar Galactica. Jerwa and Eric Trautmann collaborated on a project called Wide Awake, which appeared first as a short story in Popgun Vol. 2, then as a Free Comic Book Day special, and then later as a free webcomic. In 2009, the duo pitched an idea for a graphic novel to DC's imprint Vertigo, which was accepted, and soon after Jerwa was contacted about working with DC directly. Jerwa's first work for DC Comics was in September 2009 as the writer of the Inferno co-feature in The Shield, a monthly series that introduced re-imagined versions of the Red Circle Comics superhero characters into the DC Universe.
Brandon Jerwa currently writes Pantha in addition to Vampirella for Dynamite Entertainment!

Peter Milligan, writer of Terminal Hero #3, talks with Jay Spence about his Bad Kittyone-shot, both on sale Oct. 8Peter Milligan: DARK HORSE ENTERTAINMENT TO PRODUCE SYFY ADAPTATION OF DARK MATTER GRAPHIC NOVEL10/17/14 @ 7:34 pm EST
I’m interested in the idea of imaginary friends. Tell me, did you have an imaginary friend when you were young?Jay Spence:
I didn’t have much time to create an imaginary friend growing up with a brother close to my own age but I spent a lot of time creating characters on paper for my own comics just like so many of us comic fans do.PM:
Beneath the more regulation cop drama there’s another story going on here. Could you tell me what is was you were trying to achieve with this story?JS:
When I decided to bring back the Bad Kitty
character I was looking to explore a unique way in forcing her into vigilantism and I had some secondary real-life experience with those who are afflicted with mental illness to inspire how I would write a dedicated cop who literally can’t control herself. That struggle of living as two people without complete control is just an exaggerated example of how some people really live their daily lives. That opposition with herself is what the story and the future of that character is really about.PM:
“Ass-clown”. Really? Do people really say that in America?JS:
I think the REAL question is why aren’t Americans saying it MORE? An “F-bomb” or “A-hole” have their place, but more “colorful” words were actually a conscious choice for the vigilante side of Bad Kitty
. Katherine’s “alter ego” is still very much an immature brat and I felt she would be a lot more familiar with unique and offensive insults while Katherine would rarely curse at all. With two characters sharing the same body, you try to use as many of the writing tools at your disposal to help the reader follow the controlled chaos happening in the story. PM:
Bad Kitty is an interesting character. Any plans to delve deeper into her life and reality?JS:
This book is certainly meant to be her “origin story” and the beginning of a longer journey for Katherine. Her “secret identity” will be a little less secret by the end of this book and, in future stories, Katherine will have to learn how to cope with her new life while trying to maintain the old. Most vigilantes have a mask to divide their crime fighting from their personal life but it gets a lot more complicated when both lives are out in the open.

Dynamite Entertainment is proud to commemorate the eye-catching and thought-provoking covers of The Boys, the bestselling comic book series that spanned over 90 issues, in an all-new oversized hardcover, The Art of The Boys: The Complete Covers by Darick Robertson. This 208-page collection will showcase series co-creator Robertson's finished cover artwork from the ongoing series, plus three spin-off miniseries, Herogasm,Highland Laddie, and Butcher, Baker, Candlestickmaker. In addition to never-before-seen bonus contents like the superstar creator's pencil sketches, a brand new cover image, and artist commentary, The Art of The Boys includes a cover gallery featuring alternate covers by Jim Lee, Dave Gibbons, Howard Chaykin, David Lloyd, and John Cassaday, as well as an afterword by film producer Adam McKay (Anchorman, Talladega Nights). Scheduled for release in December, this high-end art book will make the perfect holiday gift for fans of this highly regarded comic series.
"Dynamite has put together a great collection featuring all the cover art from The Boys, presenting alternate version, early drafts, sketches, and more into a cool hardcover collection," says Robertson. "I'm proud of this book as I really enjoyed my collaboration with (Garth) Ennis while creating these covers, and am pleased to show The Boys fans a peek behind the curtain as to what went into creating these covers. I think this will be a very unique collection and a must-have for any fan of The Boys series."
In addition to The Art of The Boys hardcover edition, Dynamite will make two collectible editions also available, each featuring a personal touch from the superstar artist. A Signed Edition, limited to only 250 copies, will feature Darick Robertson's autograph in the front of the book. Also, a Remarked Edition will feature a character illustration and signature from Robertson; this especially rare edition is limited to only 100 copies in existence.
The Boys, a monumentally successful comic book series co-created by Garth Ennis (Preacher,Punisher) and Darick Robertson (Wolverine, Transmetropolitan), introduced a world where superheroes may stand as pinnacles of justice... but when they abuse their power and authority, who brings justice to the superheroes? The answer: The Boys do. Billy Butcher, Wee Hughie, Mother's Milk, The Frenchman, and The Female comprise the tough-as-nails crew that keep the "supes" in line - protecting mankind from some truly deranged superheroes.
"We simply couldn't let our ten year anniversary end without tipping our hats to the series that, even after all this time, is still beloved by so many fans," says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite. "The Boys was a runaway hit that served as a cornerstone of our company throughout its run. Darick Robertson's cover artwork, with its powerful imagery and uncompromising attitude, made it the can't-miss item on comic shop racks everywhere. It's high time we celebrate his vast body of work on this seminal Mature Readers title!"
Darick Robertson is an American artist best known for his work as a comic book illustrator. Highly prolific, Robertson has illustrated hundreds of comics in his twenty-plus years in the industry. His body of work ranges from science fiction characters of his own creation to headlining on renowned classic characters from Marvel and DC Comics (Wolverine, Punisher, New Warriors, etc.). Robertson is best known as the co-creator and illustrator of the satirical comicsTransmetropolitan and The Boys.
The Art of The Boys: The Complete Covers by Darick Robertson is currently solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' October Previews catalog, the premiere source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in December. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of The Art of The Boys with their local comic book retailers.
