Dawn/Vampirella #1 is the historic crossover series being released from Dynamite this September! Not only is this Dawn's FIRST ever crossover, but this series also celebrates the 25th anniversary of Dawn and the 45th anniversary of Vampirella! And as icing on the cake, this series is written and drawn by Dawn creator Joseph Michael Linsner!

In Dawn/Vampirella #1, our story begins when the silver tongued demon Masodik tricks and kidnaps both Dawn and Vampirella. He tells these two "Bad Girls" they are the most beautiful women in all of the worlds. Their demon host demands a "cat fight" to see who is best suited to his purposes, but the ladies suggest something more feminine -- a storytelling contest. Together they take us to the bloody shores of Draculon, to post-apocalyptic New York and to worlds beyond imagination. Only Ravana knows what rewards and punishment await the winner and the loser in this duel of horror hostesses.

"Fans of good comics should love this book because I am giving it 200 percent," says writer/artist Joseph Michael Linsner. "I've been in the game for 25 years, so I've learned a thing or two. I'll be summoning all of my resources together to make this book rock. It's not going to be the ultimate "bad girl" comic, it's going to be a great comic with something in it for everyone."

"What a privilege it is for Joe (Michael Linsner) to work with us on Dawn's first cross-over ever," adds Dynamite CEO / Publisher Nick Barrucci. "To have that cross-over be with a character as iconic as Vampirella, and for Joe to make time in his schedule to both write and draw the series is just an incredible thrill!"

Dawn/Vampirella #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' July Previews catalog, the premiere source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in September 2014. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of Dawn/Vampirella #1 with their local comic book retailers. Dawn/Vampirella #1 will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.

Here's an early look at the interiors:

Dynamite loves their buxom, scantily clad women.

Maybe they should call it "Dawn and Vampirella: Tits and Boobies".

I know this should be obvious, but Dawn doesn't really have her entire chest exposed, does she? I mean geez, and I thought Power Girl's "boob window" was tacky.

If you are going to have a Hot boobie piece of ass tell horror stories, shouldnt that be done by Elvira?
