It’s a good week for fans of The Boys and Vampirella. Dynamite Entertainment is offering a few collectibles based on two of their top comics this week.
Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s The Boys has been garnering a lot of buzz since the Amazon Prime Video adaptation of the comic debuted in July. With a second season already in production and omnibuses of the entire run selling like crazy, Dynamite is now offering a Dynamite Dollar Edition of issue #1. The special reprint also gives the publisher the chance to print the debut issue since the company didn’t take on the book until issue #7. While a great jumping on point for new readers, The Boys #1 Dynamite Dollar Edition also features new promo material for all series merchandise and publications so all fans can see what is available for their collection.
Another must-have for fans is The Boys Homelander Collectible Coin. Retailing for $29.99, the coin features the art of co-creator and fan-favorite Darick Robertson. It is also produced using a revolutionary, highest-quality colorization technique on an authentic U.S. John F. Kennedy Half-Dollar, and each is plated in genuine 24-karat gold. In addition, coins come with a full-color Certificate of Authenticity and a protective acrylic coin capsule.
Vampirella fans have had a big year. The character celebrated her 50th anniversary and Dynamite has been churning out new series, reprints, art books, and a slew of collectibles starring the Daughter of Drakulon. Two more items are now ready for purchase.
First, check out Stanley “Artgerm” Lau’s Vampirella collectible coins showcasing the artist’s work from Vampirella #2 and #4. Retailing for $29.99 with an intro price of $19.69 (Vampi’s debut year), the coins are produced featuring the same process as the Homelander coin and also come with a full-color Certificate of Authenticity and a protective acrylic coin capsule.
Finally, look for Joyce Chin’s Vampirella Lithograph for $29.99. The lithograph came about after Chin suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage and broken ankle from a resulting fall on the way to C2E2. The artist was treated at Chicago’s Presence Resurrection Hospital, but the medical costs were exorbitant. Dynamite helped coordinate the lithograph to help Chin raise much-needed funds. Available signed and unsigned, this high quality 11″ x 17″ lithograph beautifully displays her first work on the Daughter of Drakulon, originally a variant cover for Vampirella (2001) #20.
Profits from these limited-edition lithographs will go towards the artist’s fundraising efforts, and anything raised in excess of her needs will go toward the Hero Initiative, the noted not-for-profit organization set up to assist comic creators with health, medical, and quality-of-life assistance.
All of the above collectibles go on sale today, December 11. Stop by Dynamite’s website for info and to order.
