Official PR follows, and then a few more of the cards, which is what you wanted to look at in the first place.
Following a thrilling and successful two-week Kickstarter campaign, Dynamite Entertainment is excited to announce the upcoming release of their first game offering with the launch of the new Vampirella Tarot Card Deck! Thanks to more than 150 backers who supported the crowdfunded project, Dynamite Entertainment will now celebrate the vibrant history of the one and only horror icon Vampirella with a fully-functioning Tarot Card Deck that captures the timeless images of the 1969 Vampirella Magazine art in a unique and enjoyable collectible. Slated for release just in time for Halloween on October 25, the Vampirella Tarot Card Deck will be distributed through Diamond Comic Distributors, as well as through a number of game distributors, and local retailers.
Created in 1969, Vampirella has thrived for nearly 50 years delivering classic tales of terror in comics, graphic novels, and magazines. These cover images helped to define the horror comic genre with master illustrators like Frank Frazetta, Sanjulian, Bill Hughes, Jose Gonzalez, Enrich, Esteban Maroto, and Paul Gulacy, along with a host of other legendary contributing artists.
This first game offering from Dynamite Entertainment is a fun and exciting way to immerse yourself in the world of Vampirella. This set of 78 VampirellaTarot cards illustrates the major and minor arcana and comes in a deluxe illustrated box with instructions for divining the future. The cards are built in a beautiful art deco style that embraces the vintage look and feel of the classic Vampirella Magazine covers.
Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite, says, “As we continue to grow the categories that we create for our fans at Dynamite, I’m extremely excited to be introducing our new line of collectible games with a property that has as rich of a history in comics as Vampirella. This first offering captures everything we love about the character including the vibrant art of the classic Vampirella Magazine presented in a novel and entertaining way.”
The Vampirella Tarot Card Deck will retail for $19.99 (SKU: C725130262165, UPC: 725130262165) and will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ August 2017 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in October. Vampirella fans are encouraged to reserve copies of the Vampirella Tarot Card Deck with their local comic book retailers beginning August 1st!
