Thrills! Chills! Double entendres! Everything that fans expect can be found in Elvira: Mistress of the Dark Vol. 1. Brought to you by writer David Avallone (Bettie Page, Doc Savage, Twilight Zone) and Dave Acosta (Doc Savage), the 104-page trade paperback published by Dynamite Comics also features a cover by artist Joseph Michael Linsner.
In this volume, Elvira has become unstuck in time and crashes Mary Shelley’s monster weekend, launching an epic journey through horror history. Our favorite Queen of the Macabre is also stalked by the most terrifying nightmare to ever walk the Earth.
Played by actress-writer Cassandra Peterson, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark is a fixture in popular American culture. Elvira’s reign as “Queen of Halloween” spans thirty-five years and includes two nationally syndicated television series, two feature films (Elvira, Mistress of the Dark and Elvira’s Haunted Hills), an IMAX movie, and two motion control rides. She has appeared in national ad campaigns for Pepsi and Coors, recorded five music CDs, written four books, and licensed over 400 products including pinball machines, action figures, guitars, three comic book series, beer, wine, soda, perfume, slot machines, and the best-selling female costume of all time.
The collection will be available on Wednesday August 14. Fans can grab their copy at their local comic shop. You can also order online on Dynamite’s website. The Beat has the entire first chapter below ahead of the release.
