Dynamite Entertainment is ready to celebrate Vampirella’s 50th anniversary, and it has hired Gail Simone to pen an exclusive tale available now in Playboy’s Spring 2019 Freedom of Speech issue.
Joining Simone on the story is artist Joyce Chin, colorist Addison Duke, and letterer Taylor Esposito.
Vampi protects a couple of professional cosplayers from crazed cannibal peers. Cosplay, cannibalism and no kink-shaming! Fans of the Daughter of Drakulon will not want to miss this story.
“Vampirella is the original monster girl of comics. It’s always a joy to tell stories with her, looking good and being bad,” said writer Gail Simone. “There were two major enticements to do this story; one was to work with the wonderful Joyce again, who draws sexy evil like few can, and the other was to be part of that amazing legacy Playboy has had with comics and cartoons. The publisher was a known fan of the medium, wanted to BE a cartoonist at one time and provided a platform for the brilliant work of people like Harvey Kurtzman, Gahan Wilson and so many more. It’s fun to bring Vampirella into that mix!
The Playboy issue is available now, and Dynamite will release Vampirella #0 on Free Comic Book Day.
