Vampirella, one of the most recognizable comic book characters ever published, was created in 1969 and has thrived for close to five decades, consistently delivering classic tales of terror in comics, graphic novels, and magazines. Vampirella found her new home in March of 2010 when Dynamite Entertainment acquired the rights to the character from Harris Comics, and she has since appeared in a number of successful on-going series with the publisher.
Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite, says, “As we continue to grow the categories that we create for our fans at Dynamite, I’m extremely excited to be introducing our new line of collectible games with a property that has as rich of a history in comics as Vampirella. This first offering captures everything we love about the character including the vibrant art of the classic Vampirella Magazine presented in a novel and entertaining way.”
