Is Elvira no more? Passed on? Ceased to be? Pushing up the daisies? Comic publisher Dynamite Entertainment is going to celebrate the Mistress of the Dark’s upcoming fortieth anniversary by answering just that question.

Dynamite’s IndieGoGo page describes the “supersized anniversary issue” from the creative team of writer David Avallone and artist Silvia Califano as “a throwback to the classic whodunnit horror stories of the past.

The synopsis reads, “Elvira’s wake is a star-studded mad monster party, as every boy and ghoul show up to swap their favorite memories of the dearly departed.

A new IndieGoGo started today towards a new Elvira limited comic issue entitled The Death of Elvira has already been fully funded four times over, so fans will soon be able to sink their teeth into this Landmark comics project featuring their favorite Queen of Screams.

Potential investors in the comic can opt into a variety of packages that feature perks and limited editions, including a six-pack of each variant cover, sets of trading cards, and photos signed by Elvira herself, Cassandra Peterson.
