The campaign features many special reward options for collectors. Including glow-in-the-dark cards! As well as ways to focus on a favorite character such as Evil Ernie, Chastity or Purgatori – or all three. Rare puzzle card sets are available as well. For the comic fans and as an affordable add-on, Dynamite is also offering two critically acclaimed Chaos! graphic novels as well as surprise boxes of single issues mixed with other Dynamite classics. The to-the-point titled Chaos is the perfect entry point to the world for those wanting to dive right in. The 2014 miniseries event relaunched the wider world of Chaos! under the Dynamite banner. Written by Chaos! superfan Tim Seeley (Nightwing, Hack/Slash) and drawn by today’s master of flirty demons, Mirka Andolfo (Mercy, Catwoman), fans welcomed the exciting revival. While the perfect companion is Tim and brother Steve Seeley’s deep dive into the sick, rotted brain of Evil Ernie, the nightmarish centerpiece of Chaos!
The seeds of the Chaos! universe go all the way back to the creation of Ernie in 1991 by Brian Pulido and Steven Hughes. A couple of years later and the burgeoning Chaos! Comics was founded, becoming one of the hottest names in the competitive 1990s comics industry. Their unique concept of essentially taking a shared superhero world, but filling it with vicious, reprehensible, and straight-up evil characters with a horror and metal lens stood them out against the usual spandex. Artwork from legends like Steven Hughes and Ed Benes had fans biting their nails but unable to look away. That legacy continues today, in these sketch cards and beyond.
