Elvira returns to a new comic book mini-series in May as Dynamite Entertainment releases Elvira in Monsterland.
Vlad the Impaler, aka the OG Dracula, is back! In fact, he’s raiding the Multiverse of Movies introduced in Elvira’s last adventure to recruit a massive monster army for his nefarious purposes. Only one woman can stop him. And her name is… Vampirella! But she’s busy in her own books, so it’s up to the one and only Mistress of the Dark to stop Vlad’s evil plan!
Elvira was last seen stumbling through the Multiverse of Movies, bopping around with no particular plans other than getting the heck home. Naturally, it’s hard for the most famous horror hostess of all time to not interfere with some of the classics, to tangle with psycho killers and cross paths with deadly aliens… so she ran afoul of the space-time cops at Novazone Express… but they let her go with a warning. Now, her arch-enemy Vlad the Impaler is the one rampaging through the movie dimensions, causing chaos… and Novazone Express enlists her to find out why… and stop him!
In the opening issue, “It’s a Vlad, Vlad, Vlad, Vlad World” the eponymous arch-villain has called upon a near-endless roster of fellow vampires to help in his marauding schemes. Fans of horror, the supernatural, and film history will want to grab their magnifying glasses and play a who’s who identifying all the various famous and influential alternate depictions of the blood-sucking baddies. Without spoiling some of the most fun surprises and cameos, future chapters could feature the likes of reanimated Frankenstein-esque monsters, wolfmen, and werewolves, maybe a mummy or two, and more!
Elvira in Monsterland is written by David Avallone with art by Kewber Baal, and is scheduled to arrive in May 2023.
