SDCC 2014: Gail Simone Teams up Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris for Dynamite Event Series

San Diego week is upon us, and so are embargoed announcements and pre-exclusives and all those kinds of funny industry terms. Dynamite, as is ever the case, are the company most pre-prepared, and so today sees the announcement of several new comics and stories and stuff. The very first is the news that Gail Simone will be doing a team-up book at the company, pitching Red Sonja, Vampirella, and Dejah Thoris together into a new mission.

As these would be the three bestselling female characters at Dynamite, the company are putting this together as part of their ten-year anniversary celebration. Simone is already writing Red Sonja, but this’ll mark her first time writing the other two (and if you’re wondering who Dejah Thoris is – she’s the female lead from the ‘John Carter’ series). Other Dynamite females will be appearing too.

Called ‘Women of Dynamite’, the event series will be released I think later this year – no artist has been announced yet, and there’s no cover art as such. It’s very much an announcement that there’ll be imminent news at some point further down the line. Molly Mahan will edit the project.
