Vampirella Adds Collectible Coins to Birthday Extravaganza!
Coming from Dynamite in October!
July 16, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Vampirella has dominated the comic book page, and now sets her sights on collectible coins! Dynamite is releasing two coins, and each features a stunning artistic take on Vampirella by top artists Stanley “Artgerm” Lau and Lucio Parrillo!
Dynamite’s limited edition coins use an innovative colorization technique over top a base of authentic US John F. Kennedy Half-Dollars plated in real 24-karat gold. Packaged with a full-color Certificate of Authenticity and within an acrylic capsule to protect the coin, this currency is in fact legally able to buy a newspaper or bag of chips – but you won’t want to do that!
The coin featuring superstar Lucio Parrillo takes its design from Vampirella (2010) #15, with a classic image of Vampi staring down a skull. One of the hottest artists in comics and pop culture illustration today, Artgerm, has his image originating from Vampirella (2019) #2!
The recommended retail price of these coins are $29.99 each. Though to celebrate Vampirella’s big 50th anniversary Dynamite is offering them at a special introductory price of $19.69, denoting the year of Vampi’s iconic creation and first appearance.
“In our 15 year history, Dynamite has always strived to offer fans not only the highest quality comic books, but also collectibles of all types,” said Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher. “Fans were excited about the Red Sonja coins we offered recently, so we knew had to bring our other flagship heroine to this category, with all of the Vampirella hype around Christopher Priest’s series, the Vampirella/Red Sonja ongoing and the just announced Vengeance of Vampirella revival.”
The Vampirella Lucio Parrillo Collectible Coin and Vampirella Artgerm Collectible Coin will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ July 2019 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in September 2019.https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/vampirella-adds-collectible-coins-to-birthday-extravaganza/https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Vampirella-600x257.pnghttps://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Vampirella-150x64.pngNewsbirthday,coins,collectible,extravaganza,Vampirella
