Paris is the city of love? Not anymore… not since Jaime Sommers, the Bionic Woman, came to town hot on the trail of the Mission, a collection of insanely high-priced surgeons who’ve been murdering OSI’s bionic prototypes in order to provide new life for billionaire patients. But while the Bionic Woman is hunting the Mission, their #1 hunter is after her! Can Jaime pick up the pieces of her past while protecting her life in the present, or will the city of love turn its back, and its bullets, on the Bionic Woman? Acclaimed writer Paul Tobin brings you a tale of baguettes, bullets, and bionic badass!

With Vampirella trapped in Dracula’s shifting past, Jack Halloran, is left to deal with the machinations of his modern-day incarnation, the mysterious and deadly Dragunsun. But when changes to the eternal narrative first chronicled by Bram Stoker ripple through the present, each of the characters affected, in all the timelines they cross, must adjust, adapt and reorient themselves if they wish to see the story through until the end, much less survive the effects. And when the strange and mystical “Order of the Dragon” make their presence known, everyone learns this is all neither an accident, nor a game.

No one’s gotten under Vampirella’s skin quite like Pantha! Part goddess, part killer, totally dangerous,and undeniably seductive…

Pantha is many things, but never an easy target. Yet the madmen who relentlessly pursue her think otherwise. To them she is prey, just another beautiful trophy to claim as their own. But beauty is only skin deep. Beneath the surface there’s a hunger they can not hope to escape, for as they soon discover, this cat’s bite is far from gentle…

This volume features Vampirella vs. Pantha, by Mark Millar and Mark Texeira, and more hard-to-find stories from Vampirella by David Conway, Steven Grant, John Smith and Dan Jolley.

It’s the very best of Pantha, all in one place!
