In 1969 an iconic image of a mysterious female and the backdrop of an alien moon popped up on America's newsstands and forever became the fantasy of millions of young adult males! Dynamite Entertainment is celebrating these classic images of the original Vampirella series by presenting fans with The Art of Vampirella: The Warren Covers, which features every image to grace the cover of the Vampirella magazine from issue #1 through #112 and the 1972 Annual.

Vampirella is a captivating and iconic character in the world of comics, known for her striking appearance, fierce attitude, and supernatural abilities. Created by writer Forrest J Ackerman and artist Trina Robbins, Vampirella made her debut in 1969 and has since become one of the most recognizable and enduring female characters in the industry.

With her alluring yet dangerous allure, Vampirella defies traditional portrayals of vampires. She is a powerful and independent protagonist, embodying strength, intelligence, and sensuality. Her iconic costume, featuring a revealing red swimsuit and a dramatic cape, has become synonymous with her character and has been both celebrated and critiqued for its boldness.

Vampirella's impact on comics is profound and far-reaching. She played a significant role in breaking gender stereotypes and challenging the male-dominated comic book industry. As one of the first prominent female characters in horror comics, she paved the way for a new era of strong, complex, and empowered women in the medium.

Vampirella's popularity has transcended the confines of comic books, spawning a dedicated fanbase and inspiring numerous adaptations in other media. She has appeared in television series, films, and video games, further solidifying her cultural significance. Her influence can be seen in the subsequent creation of other strong female comic book characters, who have been empowered to explore themes of horror, fantasy, and sexuality.

Vampirella's enduring legacy lies in her ability to captivate audiences with her dark allure and multifaceted personality. She continues to be a symbol of empowerment, representing the strength and agency of women in the comic book industry. With her distinctive style, supernatural abilities, and fearless attitude, Vampirella has left an indelible mark on comics, inspiring both creators and readers to embrace diverse and powerful female characters.

Showcased in their purest form, every image presented in this volume will be without logos and cover type. This is the first time anywhere that fans can see how the original works of art looked before any design elements were placed over them. Featuring the art of Frank Frazetta, Sanjulian, Enrich, and Ken Kelly, along with photo covers of the beautiful Barbara Leigh in the alluring guise of Vampirella, this is sure to be one of the hottest collectibles in Vampirella history!
