This fall, with the help of fans, Dynamite is prepped to deliver Elvira: The Omega Ma’am, a 48-page comic event created by Elvira and long-running Elvira scribe David Avallone.
This original story finds Elvira waking up from a short coma to discover a deserted Los Angeles. Wandering around with her canine companion, it seems she may be the sole survivor. But The Last Sex Symbol on Earth… is not alone! She must contend with a cult of zombie-like survivors who’ve ingested cleaning products that alter their DNA, as she seeks to find out what happened and where to get a decent cup of coffee. This exclusive comic pulls inspiration from the likes of The Omega Man, The Walking Dead, 28 Days Later, Mad Max and more, and is sure to be a delight for fans of horror, camp, and great stories – as only Elvira can.
Elvira herself shared, “It’s been a blast to craft this story which doubles as a hilarious new adventure for me and touches on so much of the craziness in the world today. Working with the folks at Dynamite, David Avallone, and the rest of the team is always fun… and the fans are going to love it!”
“Dynamite has always given me great creative freedom, and this time Elvira and I really push the limits,” said writer David Avallone. “It’s easily the most provocative thing I’ve ever written, but even with that said, a highly entertaining romp. The Omega Ma’am is a comedy of cataclysm, a satire set in the Pandemic Year, in which our intrepid heroine finds herself dealing with a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles, a horde of infected zombies, and worst of all, the difficulty of obtaining a good cup of coffee when society has collapsed. As always, it is chock full of terrible puns, dirty jokes, and loving homages to classic doomsday film, television, and literature.”
Fans can donate to the Kickstarter campaign and earn rewards like signed comics, Elvira’s Spectral Board and more. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more on The Omega Ma’am.
