Dynamite is launching their own digital comics store today. The comics will DRM-Free, which makes DRM-free the new (and welcome) trend in digital. And just because they can, they’re launching with some $0.10 comics and 10% of all digital sales for the first month will be donated to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

This year, as part of Dynamite Entertainment’s 10th anniversary, the comic publisher will be rolling out with “Chaos!” line of titles, including a rebirth of the cult classic Purgatori. The first issues goes on sale next month. Through the magic of the interweb, I had a chance to interview Aaron Gillespie, writer for Dynamite’s take on the series, and ask him a few questions regarding the demonic femme fatal:
Dynamite is celebrating it’s 10th anniverasy with a special issue of Army of Darkness, Army of Darkness #1992.1 (after the year the film was released). This is appropriate, given that the Army of Darkness license was what started Dynamite down the path of becoming a publisher. Solicited for November, this is a bit of a “let’s get the […]
Cullen Bunn is really spreading himself around these days. The Sixth Gun at Oni. Magneto and Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe at Marvel. Sinestro at DC. You can add Masks II at Dynamite. Masks, which came out in 2012, was essentially a team-up mini-series for Dynamite’s pulp heroes line. The Shadow, The Spider, Green Hornet, Green Lama, Black Bat, Black Terror, Miss Fury and […]
Dynamite will be starting a new Lone Ranger series in November. Justin Gray will be writing it, which is interesting for a couple reasons. First off, it’s unusual to see Gray’s name without his usual co-writer/co-conspirator, Jimmy Palmiotti. Secondly, Gray (along with Palmiotti) is the longest tenured writer of the western genre in recent memory. His association […]
As you may recall, Dynamite and Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. came to an understanding a little while back and we’re continuing to see the fruits of the agreement. The John Carter franchise has been practically a sub-line for Dynamite with Warlord of Mars, Deja of Mars, Lords of Mars and Warriors of Mars. Now they finally get to […]
by Brandon Schatz One day before the madness of this year’s San Diego Comic Con officially begins, Dynamite has announced their future intentions for Will Eisner’s The Spirit. Most recently, the character has been a tangental part of the DC Comics line, starting with a ongoing originally helmed by Darwyn Cooke in 2006, before moving the […]
Red Sonja, Dejah Thoris and Vampirella are teaming up…but not in the same story unless we’re rely lucky. They’ll be the stars of The Women of Dynamite, an ongoing anthology series being written by Gail Simone. Because Gail likes writing the ladies, and the ladies like Gail writing them. It’s called an “event” series,. so […]
Dynamite is going European in October with the In Search of Lost Dragons art book. It sounds like an art book with a journal/scrapbook motif and a bit of background story surrounding the art. July 14, 2014, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce the October release of In Search of Lost Dragons, […]
Evil Ernie, last seen in Dynamite’s Chaos! mini-series, will be returning in his own series. Ernie was one of the mainstays of the ’90s Chaos comics line and a pretty hot property back before the independent publishers started to consolidate in the late 90s. The team on Evil Ernie will be Tim Seeley (Chaos!, Revival, Hack/Slash, […]
Dynamite’s been doing Sherlock Holmes stories on a fairly regular basis for some time now. And really, given the recent court decision on Holmes being firmly in the public domain, there’s every reason to. The next entry in the Dynamite extension of the Holmes library will find the master detective crossing paths with the magician […]
Educator Christina Blanch had made quite a name for herself with her MOOCs covering gender and social issues in comics. But she’s also a very talented writer, and her Thrillbent series The Damnation of Charlie Wormwood has gotten a lot of positive attention. And this October it’s coming to print, courtesy of Dynamite. With a Franceso Francavilla cover so you know its good.
Comics spinning off from popular fantasy/horror/YA novelists have been a pretty strong category in recent years, and Patricia Briggs is back with a new Mercy Thompson comic from Dynamite, following up on several successful series from the last few years. Thompson is a shapeshifter raised by werewolves, and if that logline appeals to, this is […]
Vampirella is still going strong after 45 years, and say what you will, the lady has some legs. Ba dum ching. Anyway, Dynamite will be published a new anthology series called Faery Tales, run by Nancy Collins and featuring an intriguing line-up of horror and fantasy comics folks, including John Shirley, Joe R. Lansadle, Gail […]
As you know, we’re big Bruce Campbell fans here at Stately Beat Manor, and Bruce was never Brucier than in Army of Darkness. So with Dynamite about to release a collection of The Art of Amy of Darkness—which was their first comic book some 10 (!!!) years ago—you know we’ll want a copy so we can relive artistic reinterpretations of great moments in the history of the One True Bruce, from John Bolton’s classic key art on. Hail to the King, baby.
