Joseph Michael Linsner and Dynamite Entertainment present their first statue collaboration, celebrating DAWN on the cusp of her 30th ANNIVERSARY!

Dawn, the goddess of rebirth, has been one of the most enduring characters in independent comics since her creation by artist, Joseph Michael Linsner, in the late 1980s. While many independent comic characters from the past few decades have slowly drifted into obscurity, Dawn has been a lasting presence with fans who see her strength, intelligence, and charm as an inspiration for what a female comic character SHOULD be.

"I'm very excited about Dynamite's new DAWN statue. Dawn has many different looks, but this may be her most popular outfit. I think it is the one which I have seen cosplayed the most. " - Joseph M. Linsner

With sculpting by RVCKVS International, and continued guidance from her creator, Dynamite has spared no detail in bringing this iconic comic book idol to life.

  • Cast in resin
  • Hand painted
  • 12.25" high (10" figure)
  • 6" at widest point
  • 3.75" diameter base

Pledge your support here on Kickstarter and receive your statues at a reduced price! 

"Dawn's universe is one full of symbols and this statue focuses on one her most iconic -- Lucifer's Halo." - Joseph Michael Linsner

STRETCH GOALS...

  • $8,000 - Dawn statue "Costume Variant" UNLOCKED.
  • $12,000 - 6x9 signed print has been UPGRADED to 8x10 signed print.

Risks and challenges

We've been publishing comic books and developing products for a long time and there is always a chance for issues to arise, but Dynamite has always found a way to produce our products. We've filled several successful Kickstarter campaigns to-date and more are being filled all the time. Our commitment to our fans is what's kept us successful for so long!
