Over in the Comics Monster forum, Editor Scott Licina has announced Vampirella will be moving from Harris Comics to Fangoria Comics.
Greetings, four-color Children of the Night…..
Yes, the original Bad Girl Bloodsucker has a new crypt to call her own- and I think you’ll all be VERY happy with the results!
I can’t spill much yet, but believe me, this ain’t Roger Daltry’s Vampi! We’re going back to what made VAMPIRELLA a legend, and using legends in the process!
FANGORIA ENTERTAINMENT will ONLY bring you the best in horror, in all it’s many menacing mediums. Vampi is BACK- and believe me she’s getting the star treatment at The True House of Horrors!!!
The new powers-that-be at Fango have loved Vampi since her inception, and worked long and hard to own her. That’s what’s going to make the difference in the end results of ALL the VAMPIRELLA projects and products- passion! That’s what’s made FANGORIA ENTERTAINMENT the horror juggernaut it’s become over the last two years- their love for horror and the brains, talent and means to make it happen.
Harris Comics has yet to make an announcement on their site, and it still seems pretty Vampirella centered at the moment. There is no word on when the transfer will take place, nor did Scott Licina mention anything about when a Fangoria based Vampi title would arrive in stores. My guess is the initial acquisition has occurred, but all the details still need to be worked out. There is currently a couple of images for Vampirella: The Blood Red Queen with a date of April 2007, so we probably won’t see anything until this fall.
I’ll post more when I know more.
