Dynamite has announced that they are launching a Kickstarter campaign that will take them in a new direction by creating a Vampirella Tarot Card Deck which they describe as being both “stylish and functional”.
The deck is expected to ship in October and this represents Dynamite’s first “collectible game”. The artwork and spirit of Vampirella will be captured in a 78-card “art deco inspired” deck that is geared toward a “vintage look” as seen on classic Vampirella Magazine covers.
The Vampirella Tarot Deck Kickstarter campaign will run between today, May 31st, and the morning of June 15th.
Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite, says:
As we continue to grow the categories that we create for our fans at Dynamite, I’m extremely excited to be introducing our new line of collectible games with a property that has as rich of a history in comics as Vampirella. This first offering captures everything we love about the character including the vibrant art of the classic Vampirella Magazine presented in a novel and entertaining way.
The deck will be packaged in a unique Kickstarter-exclusive illustrated box and these Vampirella Tarot Cards will feature the artwork of Frank Frazetta, Enrich, Esteban Maroto, and Paul Gulacy. The complete box set of these major and minor arcana tarot cards comes with detailed instructions.
