Gail Simone (Batgirl, Birds of Prey) is scripting a new series for Dynamite Entertainment currently under the working title The Women of Dynamite. The series will be focused around three of the publishers biggest female characters: Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris. Additional female characters from Dynamite's 10-year catalog will be included as well.
"When I first spoke with Nick about working at Dynamite, he graciously offered my choice of a huge list of great characters, and I immediately chose a favorite, Red Sonja." Said Simone. "But that meant leaving behind amazing characters I loved! So doing this big, fun, noisy event book, full of action and fun and drama and sex and villainy, featuring some of the wildest female characters out there, that's just awesome. Getting to work with some of the most talented female writers in the industry only makes it better!"
"After working so closely with Gail on Legends of Red Sonja, I am excited to see where we'll be going next with this epic character crossover," says Molly Mahan, Associate Editor of Dynamite. "The concept of a Women of Dynamite series has been something we've been circling around for a while now, but had to wait for the right concept and creators to come together to make the story as worthwhile as the concept. We are lucky to have Gail as the cornerstone on this project and I know we'll craft something that the fans and comics community will enjoy across demographics."
Simone debuted with Dynamite with the 2013 launch of Red Sonja and is committed to the series through issue 18. And she is contributing to the recently announced Vampirella: Feary Tales mini-series.
Release date and art team for The Women of Dynamite have not been announced at this time.
