Vampirella is one of the characters that has been consistently plagued by terrible writing. During the 90s Vampirella was at the forefront of the “Bad Girl” craze that featured female protagonists using their sexuality as a weapon. The story was typically secondary to the artwork, which often featured Vampirella striking a series of cheesecake sexual poses for fanboys to drool over. READ MORE
The latest Vampirella one-shot is a hilariously woven tale that magnificently dives into full-blown spoof territory, as Mark Rahner places Vampi into the farcical world of “Fluffy the Vampire Killer”.

And if you’re a fan of either series, it’s a face-off that’s definitely worth checking out! READ MORE

Vampirella is about as sultry as a vampire can get, even more so than the True Blood stars, and that says a lot. Since Dynamite took the title over a few years back, they’ve been pumping out constant story arcs with the scantily clad femme-vamp.

The series brings Collins into the testy street of New York, where him and Vampirella will show down in a vampire mystery for the ages.

After capping his 70-issue run Witchblade and totally tearing apart the Top Cow universe in Artifacts, writer Ron Marz is now focusing his efforts on spilling buckets of blood in his new horror/martial arts series Shinku with artist Lee Moder from Image Comics.
Shinku is the epic story of one samurai’s war against a clan of vampires, as she tries to eradicate every last blood-sucker on the planet. The solicitations for this book summarized it best with, “If you’re looking for vampires that sparkle … this ain’t it.” Shinku is a vampire story with balls and it brings back the gritty, stomach turning horror that has been missing from other vampire titles on shelves.
Ron sat down with Bloody-Disgusting to discuss the genesis of Shinku, the pitfalls of creator owned titles in today’s market and how the series is the antidote to the current vampire trends happening in comics.
