Following a successful two-week Kickstarter campaign, Dynamite Entertainment has their first game offering with the launch of the new Vampirella tarot cards. To celebrate the artistic history of the horror icon Vampirella, the publisher has put together a fully-functioning tarot card deck that uses the images of the 1969 Vampirella Magazine in a unique collectible.
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 set of 78 Vampirella tarot 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 cards will retail for $19.99 and will be solicited in the August 2017 Previews catalog and slated for release in October 25th.
