New York Comic Con News -- Dynamite Entertainment announced the creator behind their new Pumpkinhead series, as well as a Dejah Thoris series and statue, in advance of New York Comic Con.

Horror maestro Cullen Bunn (Deadpool, Monsters Unleashed) will be writing Pumpkinhead, which is based on MGM’s landmark 1980s horror film franchise about a monstrous demon that ekes out revenge on teenagers in rural Appalachia. Dynamite has yet to announce the artist or further plot details on the series, which will debut in February. Kelley Jones is one of the cover artists.

Dejah Thoris
Amy Chu (Red Sonja, Poison Ivy) is taking the Princess of Mars on new adventures in a series that will debut in January. Pasquale Qualano (She Hulk, DC Comics Bombshells) is the interior artist on the series, with covers by Jay Anacleto (Dejah Thoris and the Green Men of Mars), Sergio Davila (Conan: The Slayer), and J. Scott Campbell (Gen 13, Danger Girl). Set before the events of Edgar Rice Burroughs’s A Princess of Mars, the series will send the Red Martian princess on a scientific expedition to save her dying planet.

Dejah Thoris #0 will have a special introductory price of 25 cents. Dynamite used a similar pricing structure for the relaunch of Sheena (see “Preview: 'Sheena' #0 (Plus #1 Covers)”).

J. Scott Campbell’s artwork is the inspiration for the Dejah Thoris Diorama Statue. Steve Kiwis of Rvckvs International sculpted the statue based on Campbell’s cover artwork for Warlord of Mars #1 (2010). The 8.75” high cold-cast resin statue will be in stores in January.

These announcements come in addition to today's revelation that Dynamite is also reviving Charlie's Angels (see "'Charlie's Angels' Reunite").
