Kick Back With Barware Featuring Red Sonja, Vampirella, And Smiley

by Hannah Means Shannon

Dynamite are jumping into the current trend of bringing pop culture icons to pint glasses and bottle openers–as we can see in many Diamond Select items in comic shops–by putting their own twist on it.

They are currently running a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for items featuring Red Sonja, Vampirella, and Smiley from Chaos! Comics.The items include pint glasses and bottle openers as part of this “Barware” line, and are already set to ship in April 2018.

A Red Sonja two-piece pint glass set sports artwork inspired by her appearance in Marvel Feature #4 and, and also by 1977’s Red Sonja #1, both illustrated by Frank Throne.

Two different bottle openers are included in the campaign. Firstly, an official Vampirella bottle opener,  measuring approximately 4.5″ by 2″ in size, and featuring two magnets on the back so that you can hang it on a refrigerator door.

Secondly, the campaign includes a “Smiley the Psychotic Button” bottle opener. Measuring approximately 3.75 inches, the opener will also have a magnet on the back.

Backers who support the Dynamite Barware Kickstarter can choose from rewards including digital comic issues, digital graphic novels, and character busts.

Some rewards include:

  • Digital issues of Red Sonja #1, Vampirella #1, and Chaos #1,
  • Vampirella bottle-opener,
  • Smiley sculpted metal bottle opener,
  • Set of 2 Red Sonja pint glasses,
  • Three digital graphic novels, including Red Sonja Vol. 1, Vampirella Vol. 1, and Chaos! Vol. 1,
  • Arthur Adams Vampirella and Red Sonja busts, and more.
