The Sea Witch Debuts in Frank Frazetta's Death Dealer #5 [Preview]

Opus Comics has provided Bleeding Cool with a preview of Frank Frazetta's Death Dealer #5, the latest installment of the publisher's Frazetta-verse. The one-and-done story in Death Dealer #5 kicks off Opus's "showrunner" model for the book, in which, like a television show, regular series writer Mitch Iverson writes the main story arcs and oversees other writers creating additional stories. Torunn Grønbekk writes Death Dealer #5, which will introduce The Sea Witch, with art by Diego Galindo. Iverson will be back for issue #7 after another story in #6 by Michael Moreci and Diego Yapur.

"The intention was always to use these issues to explore and expand some different corners of the Frazetta-verse," said Iverson of the method. "But as time went on, it became apparent they were all part of the wider story we were trying to tell, so it made sense to take more of a showrunner approach and work with the writers to ensure we were all on the same page."

See the solicits and preview below. Final order cutoff is Monday, August 15th.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy claims that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Unfortunately, nobody can tell when the comics industry has reached its "darkest days" because it somehow keeps finding new lows to sink to. No matter! Jude Terror stands vigilant, bringing the snarkiest of comic book and pro wrestling clickbait to the undeserving readers of Bleeding Cool.
