Video game consultancy powerhouse The Powell Group today announced that the PlayStation® store now offers themes for Red Sonja and Vampirella, intellectual properties published as comic books and graphic novels by Dynamite Entertainment. The PlayStation store has just added these exciting new PlayStation 4 (PS4) themes to their offerings, following the success of Red Sonja and Vampirella themes offered for the PlayStation3 (PS3). Red Sonja and Vampirella are long-standing comic book properties that have each been recently rebooted to wide acclaim. Vampirella is a raven-haired heroine who remains, even after 45 years of publication, one of the comic industry's leading ladies, due in no small part to Dynamite Entertainment's stewardship of the character. Since Vampirella's very healthy resurgence in 2010, Dynamite has published two volumes of a monthly series, several miniseries and one-shot specials, and crossovers with multimedia brands and comic book peers. The Vampirella franchise is a haven for writers and artists with a penchant for the macabre.
Red Sonja, known also as "The She-Devil with a Sword," is renowned as fantasy fiction's most prominent female character, formerly a swashbuckling ally of the Robert E. Howard character, Conan. Her early adventures in the Marvel Feature comic book series led to a successful ongoing Red Sonja solo series, a celebrated run of comics from 1976 through 1979. Dynamite Entertainment acquired the Red Sonja license in 2005 as their second-ever published title, arriving on newsstands to critical acclaim and a very receptive audience. Dynamite has since published over one hundred Red Sonja comic books, including crossovers with popular characters including Conan, Dejah Thoris (of Warlord of Mars), Vampirella, Spider-Man, and more.
