Comic book superstar Vampirella made her debut in 1969 as a humble horror comic "hostess," and in the five decades since she has evolved into one of the medium's best known and most beloved characters. To honor her illustrious career and the launch of her latest series, Dynamite is taking a special look back to where this blood-sucking babe got her start with a gorgeous new Facsimile Edition of Vampirella Magazine #1!
This magazine-sized, 64-page celebration of the Daughter of Drakulon's first appearance in print is reproduced using the original printer's film, with every page - including the advertisements - exactly as it appeared half a century ago. At the time of its creation, Warren's sharp-eyed editors assembled the best talents from across the world to write and draw timeless stories, and this first issue features a diverse range of masters, including Neal Adams, Reed Crandall, Tom Sutton, Ernie Colon, Tony Tallarico, and longtime Jack Kirby inker Mike Royer.
The cover for this issue was an instant classic painted by the unequaled master of fantasy art, Frank Frazetta. To celebrate the launch of his granddaughter's Sara Frazetta's new series starring the character he helped make an icon, this special facsimile edition comes adorned with a beautiful new piece of art created as a direct homage to Frazetta's original composition. This unique mosaic artwork by artist MATT DIMASI has never appeared in print before, and it is enhanced on this special edition with special foil accents. No true fan will want to miss this piece of Vampi history!
