BLOODSHOT #1 SCALES THE SEPTEMBER SALES CHART10/22/19 @ 6:10 pm EST
Lucio Parrillo's long history with Dynamite is showcased for fans in new deluxe art book!
Today Lucio Parrillo is one of the most in demand and acclaimed cover artists in the comics industry. Long before this was universally acknowledged, Dynamite recognized Parrillo's masterful painting abilities and worked with him on countless covers for the biggest titles. The Dynamite Art of Lucio Parrillo
is a deluxe hardcover art book reprinting these pieces on oversized high quality paper without logos or other distractions so fans can marvel at the work. It's just one step away from seeing the paintings in person!
"I have been working with Dynamite for over 10 years and have made so many covers of Red Sonja, Vampirella and many other important characters," said Lucio Parrillo. "I grew artistically studying the artists of the past and frequenting the museums of Paris, Rome and Florence. My style blends 19th century classics with a modern twist. Traditional painting techniques are more rare in today's market, with so many going digital, and I think that is a part of what attracts my fans to me."
Parrillo is recognized as one of Red Sonja's greatest cover artists, depicting her throughout her storied barbarian life. He's painted the fiery heroine's early and later life, including the covers of almost every issue of the Queen Sonja series. Parrillo has also crafted countless covers for everyone's favorite Drakulonian, Vampirella! His often dark compositions stick in the minds of collectors. Just as at home in pulpy jungles and Martian sand, Parrillo has also added to the legacy of Edgar Rice Burroughs's creations John Carter, Dejah Thoris and Tarzan. Plus even more covers of zombies, pirates and the Chaos! Comics crew!
Add it all together and that's 200 pages of amazing sci-fi and fantasy images as well as beautiful women and horrific beasts! Over 150 covers to feast your eyes upon and a selection of process and preliminary pieces of art curated by Parrillo himself! Collectors can also check out signed editions and even ones with one-of-a-kind remarks from Lucio!
"It's been an absolute pleasure to work with Lucio on so many projects to this day," said Nick Barrucci, Dynamite Publisher and CEO. "He truly ranks up there as one of the great cover artists of this era or any, and each new piece never disappoints. We're incredibly proud to have contributed to his soaring career and knew this was the perfect time to assemble a dedicated spotlight for his work!"
Fans can catch Lucio Parrillo's latest masterpieces for Dynamite in Red Sonja: Birth of the She-Devil, Death-Defying 'Devil and the just announced Vengeance of Vampirella! The Dynamite Art of Lucio Parrillo
will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ August 2019 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in November 2019 in time for the holidays! Comic book fans are encouraged to preorder copies with their local comic book retailers.

VAULT ANNOUNCES 'VAGRANT QUEEN: A PLANET CALLED DOOM' SERIES10/22/19 @ 5:55 pm EST
It's an amazing time to be a Bloodshot fan, isn't it?
As the thrilling trailer for Vin Diesel's Bloodshot introduces the world to the stellar superhero, Valiant Entertainment is incredibly proud to announce that BLOODSHOT #1 made the top 40 comics in September! The action-packed debut issue earned the 38th spot and is the only comic from a non-premier publisher to make the top 50 sales in September.
This achievement would not have been possible without Valiant's phenomenal retailer partners, the incredibly passionate Valiant fans, coverage from the hardworking comics press, and, of course, the brilliant creators behind BLOODSHOT #1: Writer Tim Seeley, artist Brett Booth, colorist Andrew Dalhouse, inker Adelso Corona, letterer Dave Sharpe, and cover artists Declan Shalvey, Dave Johnson, Hannah Templer, Jonboy Meyers, and Tim Sale with Brennan Wagner. None of this would be possible without the supersoldier's spectacular co-creators: Kevin VanHook, Don Perlin and Bob Layton.
The explosive BLOODSHOT #2 goes on sale October 30th.

Vault Comics is thrilled to announce VAGRANT QUEEN: A PLANET CALLED DOOM, a brand new VAGRANT QUEEN mini-series that will hit store shelves in January 2020. MARVEL TV TOPPER JEPH LOEB TO EXIT10/22/19 @ 5:49 pm EST
Written by Eisner and GLAAD award-nominated Mags Visaggio, drawn by Jason Smith, colored by Harry Saxon, lettered by Zakk Samm, and designed by Tim Daniel, VAGRANT QUEEN: A PLANET CALLED DOOM picks up where the first series concluded; however, it serves as a perfect jumping on point for new readers who want to hop on board this epic sci-fi journey.
VAGRANT QUEEN is the story of former child queen Elida who was driven from her throne at age ten and forced to wander the galaxy, evading the revolutionary forces that wanted her dead. When an old frenemy claims to know the whereabouts of Elida’s long-lost mother, she is forced to return to her former kingdom and stage a rescue.
In 2020, VAGRANT QUEEN will debut as a TV show from SYFY, produced by Blue Ice Pictures, staring Adriyan Rae, Tom Rozon and Paul du Toit. The TV show was created and developed by Jem Garrard, and based on the VAGRANT QUEEN comic by Visaggio and Smith.
VAGRANT QUEEN: A PLANET CALLED DOOM #1 hits stores in January 2020, and will have a B cover variant drawn by Nathan Gooden and Tim Daniel.

THR'BLACK LIGHTNING': "THE BOOK OF OCCUPATION: CHAPTER FOUR" PROMO10/22/19 @ 5:43 pm EST
reports that Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb is out at the comic book powerhouse after a nearly decade-long run.
The site reports Loeb has been working on a transition plan to exit the company and is expected to formally announce his departure by Thanksgiving. THR notes that Loeb — who steered Marvel into live-action scripted TV originals with ABC's Agents of SHIELD
— had been prepping to leave well before the Oct. 15 news that Kevin Feige had been elevated to Marvel's chief creative officer.
Marvel declined to comment.
With his promotion, Feige — who has overseen Marvel's multibillion-dollar box office dominance — now oversees the creative direction of the company's content creation, including publishing, film, TV and animation. As part of the consolidation, Loeb's Marvel TV and the animation-focused Marvel Family Entertainment have also moved under Feige's Marvel Studios banner. That officially knocks down the wall that had existed between Marvel's film and TV units.
