April 22nd, 2014, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Originally introduced from Matt Wagner’s legendary Zorro Rides once again series, comes woman Zorro #1 this July from Dynamite Entertainment!  The series is written by Alex De Campi, working with Dynamite for the very first time.  woman Zorro #1 is drawn by Rey Villegas as well as has a lovely cover by Joseph Michael Linsner. other cover incentives include a Steampunk cover by Sergio Fernandez Davila as well as a special retailer shared special variant cover by Joseph Cooper!

“I’m thrilled to be able to handle woman Zorro,” states writer Alex De Campi.  “She’s such a clean slate, having only appeared in three problems of the primary Zorro book, as well as as a youngster who grew up devouring swashbuckling experience stories, being able to have my own woman heroine with a sword is like a dream come true.  For those that don’t understand much about her, she’s a Spanish gal whose household was killed by soldiers and, burning with vengeance, she decides she will become… a fox (Zorro means “fox” in Spanish).  Unlike the noble, never-kills-if-he-can-help-it Zorro, woman Zorro is a bit more bloodthirsty.  We’re joining her in exile up the coastline of California, where she is cultivating roses… as well as forgiveness.”

In the new series, woman Zorro is called back to Alta California to recuperate a sacred Indian war axe, stolen by mercenary soldiers.  only she can stop an all-out war across the ranchos, as well as more deaths like the one that consumed her family…if she can stay on the mission.  When an chance for ultimate vengeance provides itself, can she ignore it?  will the raging terminate that drives woman Zorro take in her… as well as all of Alta California with it?  What complies with is a violent, attractive tale of intrigue as well as swashbuckling as the female Fox must utilize all her wits as well as skills to get herself out of trouble.

De Campi expands upon the premise, “A wicked Spanish countess is buying up the regional ranchos as well as has hired German mercenaries to wipe out native peoples so she can have a vast cattle ranch.  The evil countess has even tried to get her hands on Zorro’s estates, so he must go back to Spain to try to stop her.  however before he leaves, he recruits woman Zorro to pick up her sword as well as mask when more, as well as take back the important Indian artifact that would ideally avert war between the Spanish settlers as well as the Indians.”

“I’ve wished to work with Alex De Campi for rather a while,” adds Dynamite CEO / publisher Nick Barrucci. “Lady Zorro is a new character with endless possibilities, as well as there’s no much better writer than Alex to spearhead woman Zorro into the future!”

Alex De Campi is an acclaimed comic book writer, understood for such titles as her 2006 Eisner Award-nominated miniseries Smoke, her manga series Kat & Mouse, as well as her celebrated, most recent work, Grindhouse: Doors open at Midnight.  She adds, “I’m going to give the woman Zorro story many of the aspects that fans like in my Grindhouse books — sexiness, violence, as well as impressively gory deaths — in addition to my penchant for extremely original, interesting set-piece action sequences.  Swords, corsets, cleavage, dismemberment.  What’s not to like?  I always feel a great deal of books on the shelves tease with attractive covers, as well as then the insides are a bit of a letdown.  This book, we will deliver.  I provide you my word!”
