The Vampirella fanbase never fails to impress! The Jose Gonzalez statue was funded in less than 24 hours! As a way to thank everyone who has supported the campaign, Dynamite has their first stretch goals to announce. There's still plenty of time to preorder your statue and other goodies.
For the first stretch goal, once the campaign passes $21,000 all backers of the campaign will receive a digital copy of the Vampirella: Feary Tales graphic novel. This anthology title replicates the feel of the original Warren magazine in its heyday, with a bounty of Vampi tales in each issue. The series was created to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Vampirella, and now here we are 5 years later! Fan favorite horror and comics writer Nancy A. Collins leads the pack, as this miniseries serves as a perfect companion to her run on the 2014 ongoing series. Also contributing stories to Feary Tales are Gail Simone (Red Sonja, Wonder Woman), Joe R. Lansdale (Bubba Ho-Tep, Jonah Hex), Steve Bissette (Swamp Thing), Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), and Devin Grayson (Batman, Nightwing).
In other graphic novel greatness, the painstakingly restored and remastered deluxe hardcover Vampirella Archives are available in multiple reward tiers, with statues sold separately. A starter set of the first 5 volumes includes all the prime era of Jose Gonzalez, such as his collaborations with the legendary writer/editor Archie Goodwin (Batman, Iron Man) and the introduction of most major supporting characters. Beyond the gorgeous Gonzalez Vampi within, also included are countless timeless tales from some of the greatest comic writers and artists in history. Greats including Neal Adams, Barry Windsor-Smith, Wally Wood, Reed Crandall, Doug Moench, Len Wein, Frank Brunner, Dave Cockrum, Mike Ploog, Sam Glanzman, Esteban Maroto, and the list goes on! That's just in those first five volumes. Other reward tiers offer the entire 15 volume set -- with over 5,000 pages of top tier comics storytelling!
And don't forget about the star of the show! The 1/6 scale, foot tall resin Vampirella statue modeled on Jose Gonzalez's character-defining illustration. Sculpted by Steve Kiwus and ready to make its home in your collection!
