VAMPIRELLA, WITCHBLADE TEAM UP

Harris Comics and Top Cow Productions are teaming again October for Vampirella/Witchblade: The Feast #1. This marks the third in a series of team-ups.

Here's how Harris describes the book, which is written by Justin Gray and drawn by Joyce Chin:

"Blood-sucking fiends have NOTHING on the cut-throat world of supermodeling as Vampi and Witchblade get caught up in this sexy, tongue-in-cheek tale. Channeling the raucous fun of a Russ Meyer film, we're sure this book will be one of the most entertaining crossovers of the year!"

"As Paris Hilton would say: 'That's Hot!'" said Harris editorial director Bon Alimagno. "But seriously, the mad mind of Justin Gray strikes again. He's produced a script that'll have our readers shocked and awed.

"And what can I say about Joyce? I'm just speechless. There are few who can draw women this seductive and this intimidating all at once. Just take a look at that cover! The fans are going to love this."

Vampirella/Witchblade: The Feast #1 will have a regular cover drawn by Chin with two variant editions limited to 1,500 copies. They are by Amanda Conner and Tone Rodriguez.

DEAD @ 17 PREQUEL

Viper Comics has announced a Dead @ 17 prequel series to start in November.

The series, Dead @ 17: Protectorate, is written by Alex Hamby, with art by Benjamin Hall.

Here's how Viper describes the series:

"In the war between Heaven and Hell, it is mankind who now has possession of a great weapon. The Book of Bolabogg carries within its flesh bindings the secrets of all creation and possibly the means to destroy the demon himself. When it is discovered in the small quaint town of Darlington Hills, it brings with it an unspeakable evil that will forge the destines of a group of men who may be Earth's last, best hope. Caught in the middle is young Grace True, whose life will forever be changed by an escalating conflict beyond her control.

ANGEL #1 GETS THIRD PRINTING

IDW Publishing has announced that support of Angel: The Curse #1 has necessitated a third printing of the issue.

Although the second printing was never officially announced, a complete sell-out of both the first and second printings have necessitated the third printing. This is the first time in IDW Publishing's history that one of its comic book titles has required a third printing.

Angel: The Curse, the first five-issue Angel mini-series from IDW Publishing, by writer Jeff Mariotte and artist David Messina, finds Angel on the run in a mysterious forest in Romania, searching for the Gypsy clan that cursed him so many years ago. Issue three of the five-issue miniseries will be in stores on August 24.

"While we're much too humble to announce every time one of our books garners a second printing," said Chris Ryall, IDW's editor-in-chief, "the sold-out status of both the first and second printings are a testament to Angel's fanbase, and something we wanted to make known. We also want to make it known that we're happily headed back to press to keep this issue available to anyone who wants to read it."

IDW's additional plans regarding Angel-related projects include the second Angel mini-series, Angel: Old Friends, which kicks off in November. Also due out on August 24 is the first Spike one-shot, Spike: Old Times, written by Peter David.

The third printing of Angel: The Curse #1 is scheduled to be released in mid-September.
