With issue four of Frank Frazetta's Death Dealer delayed slightly until August 31 (due to the arrival of new life in artist Stefano Martino's home), publisher Opus is now heavily promoting issue five and beyond.
While the fourth issue will tie up the first story arc, the following issue is a standalone that introduces another of Frank Frazetta's creations to this comic book universe: The Sea Witch.
The Sea Witch. Worshiped by some, feared by others, respected by all. She rarely meddles in the affairs of men, but the pleas of a young boy and arrival of a mysterious presence lure the Sea Witch from beneath the ocean. And vengeance is hers. A special one-shot by Torunn Grønbekk (Jane Foster & the Mighty Thor) and Diego Galindo (Stranger Things)!This issue, which sees original writer Mitch Iverson taking a supervisory 'showrunner' role on the title, is currently on course to arrive on September 7.

The arrival of The Sea Witch will be followed by another one-shot, introducing The Sorcerer, then Iverson returns to writing duties with a new story arc beginning in issue seven.
A collection of the first issues of this spectacular series will be released in November as Frank Frazetta's Death Dealer Volume One.

However, as well as introducing The Sea Witch and The Sorcerer to the world of Death Dealer, Opus is expanding the FrazettaVerse into space in November with pulp sci-fi action from Frank Frazetta's Dawn Attack, by Doctor Who's Jody Houser and Eric Campbell with Diego Yapur on art.
