SDCC 2018: DYNAMITE DROPS FIVE HALLOWEEN SPECIALS

We've been getting a peek into what comic publishers have in store for our favorite holiday, Halloween. It's included a number of cool looking specials and covers. Dynamite Entertainment is getting in on the fun with five one-shot stand-alone issues from some of their top series including Vampirella, Red Sonja, Bettie Page, Elvira, and Army of Darkness. Each Halloween Special will clock in at 40 pages.

“Halloween and comic books go hand in hand.  Everyone loves a good scary story in late October and we’ve always wanted to do a big program for all our major characters,” said Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. “This is a great chance for readers to get five great stories for themselves or to give to their friends for the holiday.”
 
“Dynamite is very excited to be presenting these titles for Halloween this year. The talent involved is absolutely incredible and bring unique voices to each story," said Dynamite Entertainment editor and interior artist Anthony Marques. "To have legendary writers such as Tom Defalco and Scott Lobdell involved is a testament to Dynamite’s relentless pursuit of bringing top-tier talent into the company to help create stories that will leave fans excited and wanting more."
