DYNAMITE Announces A 5 Week Event Featuring Li’l RED SONJA, Li’l BATTLESTAR GALACTICA And More
Ahead of this weekend’s New York Comic Con, Dynamite has announced they are getting in on the Li’l action. After hits like IDW’s KISS Kids and Dark Horse’s Itty Bitty Hellboy, Dynamite will launch a five week long series seeing the release of Li’l Red Sonja, Li’l Evil Ernie, Li’l Battlestar Galactica, Li’l Vampi, and Li’l Bionic Kids.
The event will kick off this January and will feature playful, all-ages one-shots featuring some of the publisher’s biggest characters. Eisner winning writer Roger Langridge, Art Baltazar, and Franco will join authors Jim Zub, Brandon Jerwa, and Eric Trautmann for the stories. Every issue will also include a two-page activity sheet. There will be two covers to choose from: a regular interlocking edition from Art Baltazar and a subscribers-only cover by Agnes Garbowska. The descriptions for each of the special issues follow (click any cover to expand):
