1st app.- Vampirella (1969 B&W mag.)
Vampirella is a sexy female vampire born on Drakulon. In this dark realm of Hell, blood flowed like water in huge rivers and Vampirella depended on this blood for sustenance. When Vampi came to Earth, she was forced to drink the blood of humans to survive.
Once on Earth, Vampirella was given a sacred mission – to rid the Earth of all vampires, the evil offspring of her own mother Lilith! In this quest, she has faced off against a number of powerful enemies, including the Blood Red Queen, Hemorrhage and even the legendary Dracula himself!
In a quest to discover her true origins, Vampirella discovered she is the first of a new breed of vampire, evolved for the new millennium. She
is without any of the traditional weaknesses of vampires – immune to sunlight, garlic, religious icons, or even holy water. Although Vampirella does possess supernatural strength, speed, and ferocity, her greatest power lies in her iconic beauty and irresistible sensuality.
Vampirella debuted in 1969 in a black & white magazine titled simply VAMPIRELLA. With a stunning new cover by the legendary Frank Frazetta, Vampirella #1 quickly made publishing history. Vampirella appeared in this magazine format throughout the 1970s. Many of these classic stories were illustrated by the legendary artist Jose Gonzalez and have remained quite popular to the present day. After a brief publishing hiatus, Vampirella returned in 1992 in a blockbuster new color comic book format. She quickly regained her reigning status as the queen of all female characters! Since the early 90s, Vampirella has appeared in a new color issue each and every month, written and illustrated by top artistic talents worthy of Vampirella's rich legacy! Every issue of Vampirella is a good point to start reading, with a "Story So Far" recap to bring new readers up to speed.
