Vampirella's pal gets her own Dynamite comic!
DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT LAUNCHES PANTHA ONGOING SERIES!
STRIKING! FIERCE! SEXY! PANTHA!
March 14th, 2011, Runnemede, NJ - Following the incredible success of Dynamite's Vampirella comics series comes the launch of Pantha in June 2012! First appearing in Vampirella #30, this ally of Vampirella is an ancient Egyptian cursed to live forever by the gods because of a killing spree she went on in ancient times. Dynamite Entertainment proudly presents Pantha #1, which will be written by Brandon Jerwa and drawn by Pow Rodrix, with covers by Mark Texiera and Sean Chen!
In Pantha #1, Pantha stalks the night, driving the forces of Chaos from the shadows and hunting them down like prey! Much more than a feral shapeshifter, Pantha is also an avatar for the Egyptian goddess Sekhmet - and she's going to learn that history can repeat in a violent, terrifying way! Featuring the return of several heroes and villains from the pages of PANTHA and VAMPIRELLA, "Dangerous Game" will be an important cornerstone for the future of Dynamite's epic Vampirella universe! Be sure to pick up Pantha #1 in June 2012!
"Like her good friend VAMPIRELLA, the character of PANTHA has many layers," says writer Brandon Jerwa. "My series is an equal mix of horror, suspense, mysticism, Egyptian mythology, and yes, I'll say it: Superheroic Action. To my mind, this is a comic for people who love comics as an insane, boundless platform for storytelling. You don't have to know anything about Pantha or Vampirella to understand this book, but I'm confident that longtime fans will appreciate some familiar themes and a slew of guest-stars from the vast Vampirella universe."
"Brandon [Jerwa] will be playing a larger role in our Vampirella plans as we take a bite out of 2012," adds Dynamite Editor Joe Rybandt. "Pantha is his first stab at all the action!"
"We waited to launch Pantha because we wanted to give her the same long term planning we have given Vampirella," says Dynamite Entertainment President and Publisher Nick Barrucci. "Writer Brandon Jerwa has presented a great launch pad and long term plan, and Pow Rodrix's art compliments it very well. The "icing on the cake" are beautiful and striking covers by Mark Texiera and Sean Chen. This is a great creative team that will hit this one out of the park!"

SuperginraiX is the biggest sap on The Outhousers' payroll (wait, we get paid?). He reads every issue of every crappy Marvel crossover so you don't have to. Whats worse is that he pays for his books, thus condoning Marvel's behavior. If The Outhouse cared for his well being at all, they'd try and get him into some sort of rehab center. But, alas, none of us even know how to say his name. For a good time, ask Super why Captian America jumped off the Helicarrier in Fear Itself. Super lives in the frozen wastland that is Minnesota with 15% of the state's population living under his roof: a wife he makes wear an Optimus Prime mask, two gremlins, and his mother-in-law.
