Official Press Release

Runnemede, NJ – DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT released images and information today regarding the late March release of Xena #8 and the conclusion of the intense Dark Xena storyline from writer John Layman, artist Noah Salonga and colorist Chris Garcia. Xena #8 will be available with covers by Jonathan Lau, Dynamite fan favorite artists Stjepan Sejic and Fabiano (MARVEL ZOMBIES VS. THE ARMY OF DARKNESS) Neves, as well as with another great photo cover!

Dark Xena is the second Xena storyline from writer John Layman and the first for artist Noah Salonga. Taking place prior to the events in Dynamite's first four-issue storyline titled Contest of Pantheons, Dark Xena links the finale of the Xena television show with the all-new Dynamite comic book series. Longtime fans of the television series can recount how Xena was introduced as a brutal villain but changed her evil ways and set out on a quest for redemption that ended when the warrior princess sacrificed her life to right the wrong she had committed many years ago. Dark Xena bridges the gap between the television series and the comic book series by featuring the sacrifices Xena's companions were willing to make for her to return, as well as the consequences of her resurrection.

XENA #8 (JAN073533)- WRITTEN BY JOHN LAYMAN, ART BY NOAH SALONGA; COLORED BY CHRIS GARCIA; COVER ART BY: FABIANO NEVES (25%), JONATHAN LAU (25%), PHOTO (25%) AND STJEPAN SEJIC (25%)

As our story concludes, Xena prepares for her wedding to Ares, as Gabrielle and Joxer make their move to save their friends very soul, all while battling against her new, dark crew. Will they succeed? Or will Xena remain dark at heart and a scourge of the age? Find out in this issue!

What does the future hold for Xena? Stay tuned as Dynamite prepares their next exciting Xena comic book event!
