After her confrontation with Lady Demon, Hel has a clearer picture of how she lost control of the underworld, and realizes the only way to regain her power is to return to her realm in secrecy by using one of the hidden paths that ancient mortals once used to find their way to the other side. The only problem is that there are more obstacles on the road to the underworld than there used to be, and they’re all deadly. Can Hel make it back to the underworld in one piece, or might the personification of death actually be destroyed in the attempt?

Draculina’s Family Reunion From Hell in… Blood Simple!

Draculina: Blood Simple, a new series starring Vampirella’s devilish sister and her teenaged better half is coming up this February. Writer Christopher Priest, artist Michael Sta. Maria, and colorist Ivan Nunes return for their follow up to 2021’s breakout Draculina title for a family brawl worthy of “VampireMania!”

Just as Draculina, Vampirella’s evil sister, has begun to acquire a grudging acceptance of Vampirette (her preteen alter-ego otherwise known as Katie), another sibling appears. This mysterious new character is drawn out by the reemergence of the demon Belial, who fathered a legion of demons with Vampirella’s mother Lilith. Levi (short for “Leviathan”) is a powerful half-sea creature with his father’s temper and his sister’s sense of evil mischief – and like Draculina, he wants Belial dead!

Vampirette has fully embraced the demon Belial, who is now retired and living quietly in Beverly Hills, as her beloved “Uncle Gio.” The siblings Draculina and Levi’s provocations threaten to reignite Belial’s evil fury, to the delight of their mother Lilith, whom Belial saved from certain death but whom she nonetheless despises. Lilith further stirs the cauldron by engineering a confrontation between Draculina and her new protégé, Victory, the new Draculina, which inevitably draws Vampirella into this sprawling family squabble as well! Set the table and warm up the oven for the family reunion from hell and one of the most expansive rosters in any Vampirella title ever!

Draculina first appeared in the pages of Vampirella #2 from Warren Publishing back in November of 1969. The character made her biggest return splash at Dynamite in 2021 in the year long companion series Sacred Six by Christopher Priest and company. Recently, Draculina starred in her first ever solo series from Priest and Sta. Maria that sets up the connection between her and her younger counterpart, Katie/Vampirette. Which now catches fans right up to this new title, but it can be jumped right into by newcomers too!

For Draculina’s grand return and this epic crossover series, a who’s who of top artists are doing variant covers. Jay Anacleto takes charge with a haunting, blood-soaked take on the antiheroine. Vampi franchise greats Joseph Michael Linsner, Rafael Kayanan, Zoe Lacchei, Lucio Parrillo, and cosplayer Rachel Hollon also join the throwdown.
