So here’s the deal, I am a Vampirella fan. I have been for years and I doubt that will ever change. But after several decades, the stories are starting to blend together. Not to say that I didn’t like Savage Tales: Vampirella #1 but it has some predictable plot points to it.

Cassie Hack and Vampirella in the same comic? Yes, please! First in a five-part series, Hack/Slash vs Vampirella #1 takes place on the Vegas strip with both of these lovely ladies (and Vlad) seeking the same killer.
It’s a match made in Rock ‘n Roll heaven (or is it hell?). Rock gods KISS meet up with one of comicdoms most recognizable characters, Vampirella this June in KISS/Vampirella #1. Set in the mid-1970s, the comic book miniseries explores a reality where rock music is dying off and our heroes and heroine are struggling to keep it alive.
What has happened to all the other bands in Los Angeles? The scene has changed as our fearless foursome return to find so many of their favorite artists mysteriously gone or given up. Knowing that the future of music as we know it is hanging in the balance, the quartet known as KISS seek answers. Luckily, they are joined by a force of good, one that protects humanity from evil every day. She’s more than just another rocker. She’s the one and only Vampirella.

The one thing that sticks out, at least with me, is the sheer number of times this character has been given new origins or has be revamped (no pun intended) over the decades. To be fair though, most don’t deal with the future like Vampirella 2017 #1 does here. She has changed much over the decades, but has always remained a kick ass vampire that takes no crap from anyone.
Below you’ll find the solicitations information and cover artwork for all of Dynamite comic book titles that were released on December 30, 2015. I’m really enjoying the Vampirella storyline with Aliens, or is it the Aliens storyline with Vampirella. Whichever, it’s been fun. I also got my first taste of Warren Ellis writing James Bond. Well done, sir. Well done, indeed.
