Dawn, the Goddess of Rebirth, has been one of the most enduring characters in independent comics since her creation by Linsner in the late 1980s. While many independent comic characters have slowly drifted into obscurity, Dawn has continued to inspire fans with her strength, intelligence, and charm!
“We’ve been working with Joe for over 20 years, and our close relationship has led to some great collaborations,” said Dynamite Entertainment CEO/Publisher Nick Barrucci. “Being able to work closely with Joe to create this statue in advance of Dawn’s 30th anniversary was an exciting idea for me, and we’re thrilled about the results. Our designer, Georg Brewer, continues to impress us with the work he does, and he continues to bring our work to the next level. We have no doubt Dawn fans will agree when they see it for themselves.”
“I’m very excited about Dynamite’s new Dawn statue,” said Linsner. “Dawn has many different looks, but this may be her most popular outfit. I think it is the one which I have seen cosplayed the most.”
With original creator Joseph Michael Linsner offering guidance every step of the way, Dynamite has worked closely with Rvckvs International—the talented artists behind the sensational Women of Dynamite Statue series—to bring this iconic comic book goddess to life. The final result shows their incredible attention to detail: from the three tears running from her left eye to the skulls along her famous curves, this is the Dawn millions of fans have loved for nearly three decades.
Backers of Dynamite’s Dawn statue can choose from a treasure trove of rewards specially chosen for fans, including the complete Dawn Vampirella comic collection, the upcoming 2018 Dawn Sketchbook featuring the work of Joseph Michael Linsner (an annual tradition released directly to fans via Kickstarter for the first time), a limited-edition print signed by Linsner, and even a special “Black and White” variant of the statue!
