- Full Description
From her very first appearance as drawn by Frank Frazetta on the cover of Vampirella #1, she's inspired hundreds of artists to put their own take on this sexy lady. One of the most iconic and seductive comic book characters ever created. From over 40 years of her appearances, here is art by Frazetta, Jose Gonzalez, Amanda Conner, John Bolton, J. Scott Campbell, Adam Hughes (he gets his own chapter), Mike Mignola, Joe Jusko (also his own chapter), Jim Silke, Joseph Michael Linsner, Dave Stevens, and dozens more. Entirely in full color and very impressive.
And there is commentary on how they create their work, but Davide Barzi, Joe Jusko, Amanda Conner, and writers Kurt Busiek and Alan Moore! Bruce Timm's entire story, Lust for Life is included here, and writer Busiek provides Summer Nights: A Vampirella History.
"Vampirella was so hot I used to buy every comic I could get my hands on. The fact she didn't exist didn't bother me because we have these quintessential female images in our mind..." --James Cameron, Director of Avatar, Titanic, Aliens and Terminator.
"Vampirella's the original bad girl in the same way Superman is the original superhero. She was taking down vampires while Blade was barely a concept-sketch." --Mark Miller, creator of Wanted and Kick-Ass.
Includes dozens of magazine covers, a lovely display of Jose Gonzalez Contents Page drawings (and boy, are these hot), the unique photography covers that feature Vampi models for a time, including actress Barbara Leigh.
