Horror writer Nancy Collins, of Sunglasses After Dark and Vamps is rebooting the Vampirella series for Dynamite Comics in June, with artist Patrick Berkenkotter.
As the debut “Our Lady of Shadows” story arc begins, supernatural heroine Vampirella is sent by the Vatican to investigate the kidnapping of a little girl by the Cult of Chaos… only to become the centerpiece of a ritual invoking Lady Umbra, the sister-bride of Chaos. Of the fateful repercussions, Collins says, “Vampirella’s life is turned completely upside down, and she finds herself having to team up with the strangest bedfellow imaginable in order to battle both a demonic threat and an elite Vatican hit-squad.”
And it’s all a result of Collins being hired for Gail Simone‘s Red Sonja books. Take a peek.
