Last summer Christopher Priest and Dynamite launched a wildly successful new ongoing Vampirella series, giving fans of the Daughter of Drakulon a fresh perspective on a character celebrating 50 years in comics. This week, the publisher and writer are set to release their spinoff series sacredsix #1, expanding Vampi’s world and offering new plots and adventures for a few other badass ladies in her universe. The roster includes Draculina (Victory), Pantha, Nyx, and Chastity of Chaos! fame. They are led by Lilith of Drakulon, the “Cersei Lannister of space vampires.”
Joining Priest are artists Gabriel Ibarra and Jae Lee. The first issue will also feature covers by Lee, José Ladrönn, Lucio Parrillo, Meghan Hetrick, Rod Reis, Joseph Michael Linsner, and Mark Texeira. Colors are by Mohan and letters by Willie Schubert.
Read the official synopsis here:
Spinning out of the current hit series, VAMPIRELLA!
Four women are lured to rural Georgia as part of a mysterious scheme to defend an impoverished farming town which finds itself under siege by zealots. But this isn’t just any impoverished farming town, and these aren’t just any four women. The all-new Draculina, Pantha, Nyx, and Chastity have been brought together in Ashthorne in an effort to avert all-out war against nearby Sacred,
Georgia. But Ashthorne has a deadly secret, Sacred has a deadly purpose, and lurking in the shadows is Lilith, the immortal sorceress and mother to Vampirella.
Written by Vampirella’s own Christopher Priest, drawn by Gabriel Ibarra in his mainstream debut, and featuring a special contribution by superstar Jae Lee.
