Dynamite Entertainment has announced writer Max Bemis is taking Vampirella back to the ’90s in a new one-shot arriving in June 2021.
“Vampirella 1992 explores these two sides of 90’s comic fandom, goofy and extreme versus heady, trippy and dark,” said writer Max Bemis. “It’s just as scary as imagining Alan Moore slow-dancing sexily with Rob Liefeld.”
Readers will get to know a group of women who work weekends portraying “bad girls” at comic conventions, video store events and other geek gatherings. But when terrorists attack one of these conventions, the unexpected heroines must take their cosplay to the next level Die Hard-style to save the day.
The character at the center of the story is one particular model who has been through the ups and downs navigating the comics industry and events. A second viewpoint will focus on her through a trippy lens. The only wrinkle is that she mysteriously looks a whole lot like the actual Vampirella we all know and love…
Whether readers love the 1990s or even hate the era, this will be a can’t-miss exploration of comics, fan culture, and of course Vampirella, like no other!
