Rob The Wrecker 05/17/2012 Reviews

Still reeling from seeing Dark Shadows in theaters? Are you anxiously awaiting the announcement of a sequel? While I can’t make any promises on that front, I can help stay your appetite by telling you about Dynamite Entertainment’s Dark Shadows/Vampirella! Coming this August from the creative team of Marc Andreyko and Patrick Berkenkotter, Dark Shadows/Vampirella will bring the two iconic vampires together in New York City, each investigating their own mystery. Will they solve them before they kill each other? Who knows? For more information see the press release below!





Vampirella/ Dark ShadowsMay 16th, 2011, Runnemede, NJ – This coming August, Vampirella and Barnabas Collins meet for the first time EVER in Dark Shadows/Vampirella #1! Written by the acclaimed Marc (Manhunter) Andreyko and drawn by Patrick Berkenkotter, with a cover by Fabiano Neves, this will be a cross-over to remember! Be sure to pick up Dark Shadows/Vampirella #1 this coming August!


In Dark Shadows/Vampirella #1, when the disappearance of a family friend brings Barnabas Collins to New York, he is ill-prepared for the seedy underworld of clubs that awaits him! And Vampirella’s quest to find the “Big Apple Butcher” sends her on a collision course with the vampire of Collinsport! Will Vampirella and Barnabas uncover the shocking identity of this madman before they kill each another?


“Barnabas Collins and Vampirella are two classic characters in vampire lore, so getting the chance to pen their first meeting is a blast,” says writer Marc Andreyko. “I remember watching Dark Shadows reruns and sneaking peeks at the Vampirella magazines when I was just a wee lad, so getting to do this book seems like fate! And I’m not going easy on Barnabas or Vampi in this series, either! They are going to be put through a gauntlet of terror before this book is through!”

Jim Pierson, spokesman for Dark Shadows rights owner Dan Curtis Productions, adds, “It’s fun to further expand the reach of Dark Shadows and hopefully expose the classic characters to new fans who might just be discovering Barnabas with the new Johnny Depp movie.”


“Cross-overs get a bad rap when they’re not done right, or they feel forced,” adds Dynamite editor Joe Rybandt. “But this one felt like a natural the moment we had the idea. The setting, the characters, the bad guys…the whole thing has come together so naturally, and Marc and Patrick are the perfect pair to make it happen.”

    As long as it's Dark Shadows and not whatever it was Tim Burton puked up I'll be on board. Dynamite has been treating the Dark Shadows mythos with a very high level of respect making it one of my favorite reads every month!
