As reported here earlier this year at borg.com, Bill Willingham’s successful steampunk/steampulp series is spawning three new series coming in February. Starring Vampirella, Red Sonja, and the team of Green Hornet and Kato–as they all were re-envisioned for the Legenderry universe, these series follow the characters after the events in the seven-issue mini-series that wrapped this summer from Dynamite Comics.
We now have the images of the three main covers for each title, shown above and below. Rarer variants will feature original art black and white versions of some of these covers.
The first to be released is writer David Avallone and artist David Cabrera’s Legenderry: Vampirella. Coming February 4, 2015, the publisher has describes the series as:
A return to Bill Willingham’s fantastical steampulp world of LEGENDERRY! Vampirella comes home from the epic battle in The Principality to find that her Scarlet Club has been closed, and powerful forces within The Big City are conspiring to destroy her… but they quickly learn they’ve pissed off the wrong immortal vampire.
February 11, 2015, Dynamite releases writer Marc Andreyko and artist Aneke’s Legenderry: Red Sonja.
One of the breakout stars of LEGENDERRY gets her own series! After sailing the high seas, Red Sonja returns to the Big City for some R&R, but when she tries to stop a simple kidnapping, she discovers that things ain’t so simple! Red finds herself caught up in an adventure that will take her from the city to the sea to—- well, you’ll find out! And who is that mysterious figure lurking in the shadows? All— well, some anyway, will be revealed in a story that had to be called “The Body Electric”!
Finally on February 18, 2015, Dynamite releases the first issue of Legenderry: Green Hornet, by writer Daryl Gregory and artist Brent Peeples.
From the pages of Bill Willingham’s LEGENDERRY, it’s Green Hornet and Kato, goggles-deep in an all-out steampunk gang war! We’ve got airships! Electric velocipedes! Semi-automatic blunderbusses! Each gang and gang lord is weirder than the last, beginning with the child psychopath who starts the war, the adorable and deadly “Little Lord Homicide.” But who’s pulling the boy’s strings?
And who is on this variant of Green Hornet?
We’ll be previewing each of the series here at borg.com beginning in January. Hey, Dynamite! Need help writing the Six Thousand Dollar Man or Miss Fury spin-off? These aren’t in the cards yet, but would make good additions to the Legenderry universe, and are all properties Dynamite can play with.
