Dynamite Entertainment has announced that Vampirella will throw down with Dracula in 2011 in the pages of Vampirella #4 by Eric Trautmann.
Vampirella’s pursuit of Dracula has revealed a cult of vampires, worshippers of an ancient evil, one so vast and terrible that even the Lord of the Vampires respects – and perhaps fears – it. As the world stands between eternal chaos and an endless army of blood-drinking horrors, Vampirella, plagued with nightmare visions of her past and of possible future, may finally have met her match.
“At this point, I’m really hoping to push the action and general weirdness to new heights,” says writer Eric Trautmann. “Not only do we see Vampirella face-to-face with Dracula, at last, but we also get to see a huge battle — guns blazing, hearts being staked, faces being kicked, and as much blood and thunder as I can pack into 22 pages. That’s been a large part of the fun: crafting something so vile and nasty that even Dracula is worried about it.”
Vampirella #4 arrives in stores in February.
