Dynamite expanded its Vampirella world with Vampiverse by writers Tom Sniegoski, Jeannine Acheson, and artist Daniel Maine, with variations of the Daughter of Drakulon popping up in countless universes and timelines. The Vamp, a pulpy version of Vampi, was a fan favorite, and now the publisher has a special one-shot hitting this June starring the character.
Read more below:
“The Vamp is a mysterious crime fighter in a 1930s pulp world. Now her full origin will be revealed. Where did she come from? As well as how she established her reputation and became the scourge of all things evil. Even in this world, the infamous Cult of Chaos exists, and she may even have a surprising connection to them…”
Acheson stated, “The Vamp was definitely one of the characters that stood out to us as we wrote the Vampiverse mini-series. She was one of the more ‘fleshed-out’ Vampirellas — taking on a life of her own as soon as she appeared — so Tom and I are really excited to re-visit her in this issue!”
“I’m a huge fan of the pulps (The Shadow, Doc Savage, The Spider) and getting a chance to write a Vampirella with that kind of crazy, over-the-top storytelling is something that I can’t wait to do,” said Sniegoski. “There’s even a talking orangutan butler, for Pete’s sake!”
Look for three covers for the one-shot: one from Jimmy Broxton, known for his pulp stylings and recent risque covers for Dynamite, another by German Garcia, and one starring cosplayer Rachel Hollon. Dynamite is also offering a blank sketch cover.
Vampiverse Presents: The Vamp #1 will be available for preorder in April and is slated for a June release. It will also be available through digital platforms such as Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, ComicsPlus, and more.
