In July 1969, the world was first introduced to Vampirella. 50 years later, she doesn’t look a day older!!!! Now, to celebrate her gold anniversary, Dynamite is launching a brand-new, ongoing series featuring the talents of Christopher Priest (Black Panther, Deathstroke, Quantum & Woody, Justice League) and European star/American star-in-the-making, Ergün Gündüz (Tales of the Great War, Taxi Tales)! You’ll experience the first, mysterious taste of things to come in Vampirella Free Comic Book Day #0, and the story continues here!!!

I don’t know if I like this book, precisely, but it’s kind of fascinating. I like the dialogue (which is pure unadulteraed Priest) and the art, while stilted, is unnerving enough to work for the tale of an alien vampire who wears a slingshot bikini. I *think* I like it.Matthew's Thoughts
New volume, new origin story. While trying to be new reader friendly, it feels like this issue is spinning its wheels way too much. And the art… I understand it is a style, but it looks like clipart vector graphics presented on the page. It isn’t to my liking, but I’m sure there are readers who will love it.Stephen's Thoughts
