Alice Cooper #6
Brandon Jerwa (w) Nacho Tenorio (a) David Mack (c)
“LIFE AND DEATH OF THE PARTY” – Alice Cooper, the Nightmare Lord, has reclaimed the seat of power in his own dark realm. It’s time to celebrate with a full-on tour of the weird dreamworld that our hero calls home…but there’s something sinister lurking in the shadows. Who is Doubting Thomas, and what does he want with Alice? It’s a done-in-one tale of terror!
Joseph Michael Linsner (w/a/c)
Dawn and Vampirella start to understand that all the world is a stage as they tell stories while plotting their escape from the demon Masodik. Dawn tells the tale of a young girl who trades her innocence for a greater understanding of the cosmos, and Vampirella tells the story of a girl from a planet where the rivers run red with blood.

Who knows how to celebrate ten years of Dynamite publishing better than the She-Devil with a Sword herself, RED SONJA? And she’s invited some serious barbarian bards to help! Past and present Sonja scribes GAIL SIMONE (current monthly writer), LUKE LIEBERMAN (the man behind Queen Sonja), MIKE OEMING (the first scribe of Red Sonja’s tenure at Dynamite), ERIC TRAUTMANN (who swept Sonja across the many Hyborian kingdoms), and ROY THOMAS (the man who started it all) pair up with beloved artists for this phenomenal five-story, supersized anthology, celebrating Red Sonja and her many roles and sojourns throughout the Hyborian Age!
Vampirella: Feary Tales #5
Nancy A. Collins, Steve Niles (w) Jack Jadson, Eman Casallos (a) Jay Anacleto, Joyce Chin, David Roach (c)
Final Issue! Vampirella is shocked when she meets the pun-happy Storyteller face-to-face, only to end up hip-deep in alligators in Steve Niles’ swamp-monster retelling of “The Frog Prince”. Then, in Nancy A. Collins’ twisted take on “Sleeping Beauty”, a major character from the original Warren run is reintroduced when Vampirella finally discovers the true identity of her mysterious doppelganger and learns about her hidden connection to the enchanted book she is trapped inside in a weird and wicked resolution that ties in with the on-going monthly title—provided Vampi can escape a castle full of walking dead that have awoken from their centuries-long slumber with a royal appetite…
