PANTHA #1 SELLS-OUT AT DYNAMITE! GOING TO A SECOND PRINTING!
June 18h, 2011, Runnemede, NJ - Dynamite proudly announces Pantha #1 is sold-out and is going back to a second printing. Written by Brandon Jerwa and drawn by Pow Rodrix, with covers by Mark Texiera and Sean Chen! First appearing in Vampirella #30, Pantha is an ally of Vampirella is an ancient Egyptian cursed to live forever by the gods because of a killing spree she had gone on in ancient times.
In Pantha #1, Pantha stalks the night, driving the forces of Chaos from the shadows and hunting them down like prey! Much more than a feral shapeshifter, Pantha is also an avatar for the Egyptian goddess Sekhmet – and she’s going to learn that history can repeat in a violent, terrifying way! Featuring the return of several heroes and villains from the pages of PANTHA and VAMPIRELLA, “Dangerous Game” will be an important cornerstone for the future of Dynamite’s epic Vampirella universe!
“When I found out that Pantha #1 sold it, it was a very pleasant surprise,” says Pantha writer Brandon Jerwa. ”We tried to give this book its own identity, separate from VAMPIRELLA but still in the same universe. Hopefully, we’ve achieved that.”
“I am so proud of the sell-out of Pantha #1, as we endeavored to give her the same long term planning we have given Vampirella,” says Dynamite Entertainment President and Publisher Nick Barrucci. “All of the hard work from Brandon, Pow! and our team has paid off, and our fans will continue to be thrilled as more issues come out!”
