DC has its Elseworlds and Marvel has its What If?… now Dynamite is jumping into the fray and offering up Altered States, a new line of stories taking familiar characters and putting them in parallel realities. They have announced four titles to kick off this new line.
Altered States: Red Sonja by Brandon Jerwa and Juanan Ramirez is about a red headed museum worker in New York City who soon finds herself fighting for survival in a dystopian-inspired Hyborian wasteland.
- Altered States: Vampirella by Nancy A. Collins and Francesco Manna turn the tables on Ella Normandy after she survives a crash landing to become the sole human on a planet full of Vampires.
- Altered States: The Shadow, by David Avallone and Ivan Rodriguez tells a tale that proves once and more that there are worse things in the world than the evil that lurks within the hearts of men.
- Altered States: Doc Savage, by David Avallone and Dave Acosta explores what happens when the world's most powerful man is turned into a rampaging beast whose very humanity may be lost forever.
Each Altered States story will unfold in a 32 page full-color comic and feature a cover by Billy Tan. With a new issue planned for release every Wednesday in March. Altered States will be solicited in the January Previews catalog.
