Chastity Solo Series Coming from Dynamite Entertainment
In an effort to find every last cool thing that we forgot about in comics, Dynamite Entertainment is set to expand the relaunch of Chaos! Comics with the return of another character. Beginning in July 2014, Chastity is back and ready for blood. Written by Marc Andreyko and illustrated by Dave Acosta, the comic picks up with 17 year old Chastity Marks prematurely ending her Olympic career due to injury and escapes in a popular series of vampire novels. Unbeknownst to her, the books conceal a secret underworld of blood, agony, and death that she's about to be dragged into.
"Chastity has been a blast to write and update for the post-Twilight, romantic, warm fuzzy view of bloodsuckers," says Chastity writer Marc Andreyko, "As Chas and the readers will soon discover: be careful what you wish for. Her adventures will uncover the true faces of supernatural evil as she tries to find a world, any world, in which she belongs."
"Marc has taken the current conventions of vampires and vampire fiction and spun them into a new backstory for Chastity in a way that is a perfect and seamless blend of the old and new." says Joseph Rybandt, Dynamite Senior Editor.
I will admit that I have no knowledge of Chastity but I'm interested as to what Dynamite will do with the Chaos! Comics line as a whole. This sounds like a fun book, especially with the current landscape of vampires in pop culture.
Chastity #1 will be available on July 9th, 2014 featuring covers by Emanuela Lupacchino and Tim Seeley, with a shared retailer cover by José Luis.
