Dynamite Entertainment has announced three new books in the Dynamite Art Edition line. The books are Vampirella Art Edition with art by Jose Gonzalez, Battlestar Galactica Art Edition with art by Walter Simonson and the third with the incredible long name – Edgar Rice Burroughs’ John Carter: Warlord of Mars – The Marvel Years Art Edition with art by Gil Kane, Carmine Infantino, Dave Cockrum and more.
Jose Gonzalez’s Vampirella Art Edition comes from Warren Publishing’s Vampirella Magazine in the 1970s, and represents ten complete stories including “Resurrection of Papa Voudou” (as written by Archie Goodwin), “The Blood Queen of Bayou Parish” (Steve Englehart), “An Eye for an Eye” (Bill DuBay), “Spawn of the Star Beast” (Rich Margopoulos), and more.
Walter Simonson’s Battlestar Galactica Art Edition commemorates the Battlestar Galactica comic book series, published by Marvel Comics from 1979 to 1981. While Simonson himself assumes writing chores in many of the Art Edition contents, contributing writers also include Steven Grant, Roger McKenzie, and Bill Mantlo.
The John Carter: Warlord of Mars – The Marvel Years Art Edition is the product of a recent and comprehensive licensing agreement between Dynamite Entertainment and Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc.. This Art Edition collects artwork from Gil Kane, Rudy Nebres, Bernie Wrightson, Alan Weiss, Ernie Chan, Sal Buscema, Larry Hama, Ernie Colon, Carmine Infantino, Dave Cockrum, Alex Nino, George Perez, John Byrne, Bob McCleod, Ricardo Villagran, and Mike Vosburg. The cover artwork and interior pages are drawn from throughout the 1977-1979 run of John Carter: Warlord of Mars originally published by Marvel Comics.
The Dynamite Art Editions will be available through Diamond Comic Distributors‘ Previews catalog.
