Earlier this year “THE BOYS” publisher Dynamite announced that it had acquired the rights to cult classic character “VAMPIRELLA”. Well since then details on the move have been pretty slim, but today the publisher released the first information on their plans for the character since the acquisition, including the naming of the writer that will pen the new series this November. Read on for all the details!
“Dynamite Entertainment is pleased to introduce Vampirella to a new audience of readers! Vampirella’s back and is hot on the trail of her nemesis, Vlad Dracula. It’s a darker world for Vampirella, and something even more sinister than vampires lurks in the shadows, something that even Dracula himself has cause to fear. Vampirella is all that stands between us . . . . . . .and the end of the world! Vampirella #1 is written by Eric Trautmann (Action Comics co-written with Greg Rucka), illustrated by Wagner Reis and will arrive at comic shops this November.
“It’s a genuine pleasure to be adding to the ‘legend’ of Vampirella,” says writer Eric Trautmann. “There’s a long roster of talented creators – Forrest Ackerman, Archie Goodwin, Kurt Busiek, Warren Ellis, James Robinson, Grant Morrison to name just a few – have cast a long shadow over Vampirella. It’s an honor to be able to add to that long, rich history, and add some of my own peculiar brand of weirdness to it all. I think people will be really surprised by Wagner’s work; he brings a real sense of realism and danger to the page, and manages to create a sexy, intelligent, dangerous Vampirella. Dynamite has been very welcoming, and the experience of working with them has been tremendous fun, and hopefully that translates to the printed page.”
“Eric’s a talented writer who we’re proud to be working with, after first catching our eye while working with Greg Rucka on Action Comics,” adds Dynamite President Nick Barrucci. “Dynamite Entertainment is incredibly proud of Eric’s vision for Vampirella and we ask fans to join us on what will surely be a fun ride! We’re extremely proud to show one of the premiere covers to Vampirella #1 with art by J. Scott Campbell and colorist Nei Ruffino! In the next few days, we will be showing more cover art from Vampirella as well as fantastic interior pages!”
