It’s a baby for Vampirella in Vampirella: Year One #6

Vampirella: Year One #6

Mark the date on your calendars! Dynamite Entertainment has a bright eyed baby vampire to bring into the world this December. Vampirella: Year One #6 is set to feature the first ever appearance of Vampirella’s very own baby!

Vampirella made her debut appearance over 50 years ago, back in 1969’s Vampirella #1. Both her devilish, blonde-haired sister Draculina and her sometimes cousin/sometimes ally Evily the Witch followed the next issue. The Vampi mythos has grown over the years with more character introductions like her mother Lilith, allies Pendragon, Conrad and Adam Van Helsing, Pantha, and many more. Legendary writer Christopher Priest has even introduced a handful of new characters in his continuing acclaimed tenure on the franchise that started by celebrating that 50th anniversary. Now in the finale of his latest chapter, one of the most exciting additions to the cast will make their debut! But is the child a blessing, or curse?

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in a baby carriage. But in Vampirella’s world, life doesn’t always go according to the fairy tales. Her complicated marriage with Matt Ecsed was motivated in part by a goal of preventing a curse that would resurrect and empower the devious Dracula, king of the vampires. In the epic finale of Vampirella / Dracula: Unholy, the Daughter of Drakulon became a widow, and now carries her late husband’s child. Then in the hotly anticipated Year One, Priest and artist Ergün Gündüz have been reaching back and expanding on Vampi’s earliest days as a rebellious teen on her home planet and what lead her to her adoptive Earth. In moments between these flashbacks, the saga continues with her pregnancy.

Dynamite invites fans to be a part of history and add this major turning point in the tapestry to their collections as Year One concludes with a big bang, before Priest then moves on to the next set of twists and turns in his nearly 50 issue run. But the ultimate question is, just like their departed father before them – is this baby a blessing or a curse for our dear Vampirella?
