Dynamite Entertainment is bringing Vampirella back in November, and they’ve tapped Eric Trautmann to write the tale of Vampirella on the trail of Vlad Dracula.

“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.”

The interior art is by Wagner Reis, though you’ll want to take the jump to see the J. Scott Campbell cover.

Vampirella debuted in 1969 in a black & white magazine titled simply VAMPIRELLA. With a stunning cover by legendary artist, Frank Frazetta, Vampirella #1 quickly made publishing history with its depiction of a vampire heroine, and its success prompted comics giants DC and Marvel to launch horror titles of their own.

    J. Scott certainly draws a pretty picture there but why does she have a bloody nose?

    Also, I hope this is a reboot so that I could possibly get interested in the title from scratch.

    About time, I need my monthly Vampi fix. Hope it stays strictly supernatural/mystery though, that is where she fits best. Dynamite usually get good cover artists, just hope the interior artists are up to scratch though.
