Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce that Wizard Magazine THE Guide to Comics is bringing back the comic previews in the pages of their magazine – and Dynamite will be featured back-to-back in upcoming issues (issues 206 and 207: GOLD)! Best of all, comic book fans and retailers will be able to review the previews to both BLACK TERROR #1 and THE DEATH DEFYING ‘DEVIL #1 a full week before the books go on sale!
“Pre-order activity on The Black Terror has been very strong, and the initial response to the Death Defying ‘Devil has been incredible. To help add to the “dynamite” buzz, we wanted to take an extra step to encourage sell through in comic book shops across the country,” explained Dynamite President Nick Barrucci. “By partnering up with Wizard to present these two previews, back-to-back in October and November, we’re confident that fans checking them out will rush out the next week to pick up these debut issues! We encourage fans to pick up Wizard #206 in stores October 29th and Wizard #207: GOLD in stores November 26th for the special 5 page preview of each series launch. Both Previews will hit a full week before the in store date to help fans who read Wizard increase their awareness of Black Terror #1 and the Death Defying ‘Devil #1, and to help retailers have increased sell through.”
“The opportunity to deliver consecutive comic previews on highly-anticipated debuts like The Black Terror and Death Defying Devil has us thrilled,” said Wizard Senior VP/Operations Joe Yanarella. “Spinning out of the pages of Alex Ross and Jim Krueger’s ultra-successful Project Superpowers, we’re sure these two books will be the next two great offerings from Dynamite. And there’s no better way to bring that excitement to the fans than showing them exclusive pages from both #1 issues.”

That excitement over upcoming comic books will spill right over into Wizard’s Gold and Platinum issues.
“With all of the exciting comics coming in 2009, we needed an extra issue of Wizard to do it justice,” added Yanarella.
The Wizard Platinum issue will feature an inside look at over 100 comics and feature multiple comic previews, including a look at the 2009 offerings from the Dynamite roster of talent including Alex Ross, John Cassaday, Frank Cho, Garth Ennis, Jae Lee, Marc Guggenheim and more.
And Dynamite is only getting warmed up with these two previews. Wizard #207: PLATINUM, the 2009 Preview issue shipping December 10th will also have a 5 page feature on what’s coming up from Dynamite in 2009. Come one, come all, the coming of the superpowers is upon us!
