Vampirella vs. Dracula!

Vampirella #4 arrives in comic shops February 2011 from Dynamite Entertainment!



November 24, 2010, Runnemede, NJ - Vampirella #1 is in stores today, and we want to thank our fans and retail partners for helping to make Vampirella #1 a success in advance orders and we hope that fans agree when they purchase issue #1! Shipping in February is Vampirella #4, available for advance orders in this week's Previews Magazine!  Vampirella's pursuit of Dracula has revealed a cult of vampires, worshippers of an ancient evil, one so vast and terrible that  even the Lord of the Vampires  respects - and perhaps fears - it. As the world stands between eternal chaos and an endless army of blood-drinking horrors, Vampirella, plagued with nightmare visions of her past and of possible future, may finally have met her match.  Make sure you let your local retailer know to reserve a copy so that you can be ensured a copy of Vampirella #4 this February!

"At this point, I'm really hoping to push the action and general weirdness to new heights," says writer Eric Trautmann.  "Not only do we see Vampirella face-to-face with Dracula, at last, but we also get to see a huge battle -- guns blazing, hearts being staked, faces being kicked, and as much blood and thunder as I can pack into 22 pages.  That's been a large part of the fun: crafting something so vile and nasty that even Dracula is worried about it."

Vampirella debuted in 1969 in a black & white magazine titled simply VAMPIRELLA. With a stunning cover by legendary artist, Frank Frazetta, Vampirella #1 quickly made publishing history with its depiction of a vampire heroine, and its success prompted comics giants DC and Marvel to launch horror titles of their own.  Vampirella appeared in this magazine format throughout the 1970's.  Many of these classic stories were illustrated by the legendary artist Jose Gonzalez and have remained quite popular with comics fans to the present day. After a brief publishing hiatus, Vampirella returned in 1992 and quickly regained her reigning status as the queen of all female comics characters!  In continuous publication since her early 90s comeback, Vampirella has been written by top talents including Alan Moore, Mark Millar, Grant Morrison, James Robinson, Jeph Loeb, Warren Ellis, and illustrated by fan favorite artists such as Joe Quesada, J. Scott Campbell, Michael Turner, Jae Lee, Adam Hughes, Mark Texeira, Joe Jusko, Arthur Suydam, and many more!  A Vampirella feature film premiered on Showtime Networks in 1996, and the character continues to appear on numerous items of licensed merchandise.  Earlier this year, Dynamite Entertainment acquired the Vampirella property from Harris Publications.  Vampirella is now a part of Dynamite's thriving comic book line-up, which will propel Vampirella to new heights just as we did with Green Hornet, The Lone Ranger, Zorro, Red Sonja and more.
