Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce two new ways to make the world taste better, courtesy of Chaos! Comics‘s resident bad boy, Smiley, and the She-Devil with a Sword, Red Sonja! The Smiley the Psychotic Button Bottle Opener can pop the top of your favorite alcohol or soda, while the two-piece Red Sonja pint glass set makes a perfect pair of glassware to clink once the beverage is poured!
Smiley the Psychotic Button Bottle Opener
You’ll be grinning maniacally as you pop open your tasty beverages with the fully sculpted bottle opener of Smiley the Psychotic Button! Everyone’s favorite demonic flair from Chaos! Comics is coming to a
kitchen near you, made of sturdy zinc alloy and stainless steel, measuring approximately 3.75 inches tall, and shipping in a full-color box. Plus, a magnet on the back will keep him stuck to your fridge, on full display for your jealous friends and family. Put Smiley’s gnarly teeth to good use and pry open a cold one!
“Evil Ernie’s Smiley pin is one of the all time classic visual forms and the original evil emoticon,” says Georg Brewer, founder of the Brewing Factory. “The look and attitude of Smiley are perfect for our
first bottle opener and realizing the form sculpturally in timeless metal was a match made in heaven… or hell, in this case.”
Women of Dynamite: Red Sonja Pint Glass Two-Piece Set
It’s time to enjoy a tall glass o’ ale (or another preferred beverage, if you’re not a Hyrkanian warrior) with official Women of Dynamite glassware. These two (2) sturdy pint glasses celebrate vintage images
of Red Sonja, as she appeared on the covers to Marvel Feature #4 (1975) and Red Sonja #1 (1977), both as illustrated by acclaimed fantasy artist Frank Thorne! Featuring the ever-classic Red Sonja logo
on the back of each glass, this two-piece set ships in a protective case. Adventure never looked (or tasted) so good!
“As a huge fan of classic characters and comics, I was thirsty for the chance to play in the Dynamite vaults,” says Brewer. “Delivering these images on pint glasses is an exciting way to bring classic art and iconic characters into an everyday part of your life. Starting the barware series with these two faithfully reproduced classic Red Sonja covers will appeal to fans of comics and pop culture alike.”
“With popular brands like Red Sonja, Vampirella, the Chaos Comics characters, and so many more in the Dynamite library, developing 3D merchandise is a natural evolution for one of the industry’s leading comic book publishers,” says Nick Barrucci, Dynamite’s CEO and Publisher. “In the past year, we’ve launched the successful line of Women of Dynamite statues, and our new barware initiative grants longtime comic fans an opportunity to enjoy their favorite characters in colorful and functional ways. Having fun with our favorite comics, that’s something we can all raise a glass to.”
The Smiley the Psychotic Button Bottle Opener retails for $17.99, and the Women of Dynamite: Red Sonja Pint Glass Two-Piece Set retails for $19.99. These barware collectibles will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ July 2016 Previews catalog, the premiere source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in September. Fans are encouraged to reserve their barware
with local comic book retailers in July!
