Ackerman came up with the concept, then underground comix legend and Wonder Woman artist Trina Robbins designed the costume, for a first cover by fantasy painting master Frank Frazetta and an interior story by Ghost Rider artist Tom Sutton.

The depth of her stories really expanded with writer/editor Archie Goodwin (Batman, Iron Manand José González. The two introduced major supporting characters like Adam Van Helsing and Pendragon. González wowed readers with his jaw-dropping art utilizing unparalleled detail and ink washes, pushing the boundaries of the black and white magazine format. His frontispiece illustrations and occasional covers further cemented his legacy as he contributed to nearly every issue of the decades long Warren run.
