Multiple Eisner Award-winning writer Bill Willingham (Fables, Robin) turns his hand to the Daughter of Drakulon for the first time ever this September with Dynamite Entertainment’s Vampirella: Trial of the Soul standalone one-shot.
“I always found Vampirella so intriguing and I’ve always had a crush on vampires so this one-shot for me will be definitely a great chance to test my skills with this classic character,” said artist Giuseppe Cafaro. “Plus, with Bill at the script, I’m sure that this will be an amazing journey! I always loved what he did with Fables and the Sandman Universe! Can’t wait to show fans what we are doing!”
This extra-length special tale asks the question, “Does Vampirella have a soul?” New character Prester John has made it his mission to determine this and enact judgment on her. If she passes the test, she will be spared. If not, he must destroy her. No matter how charming he finds her…
Beyond the titular question of her soul, is Vampirella friend or foe to the forces of Heaven? Is Prester John a “villain” or something much more complicated, just as fans’ favorite vampiri? And if either survives their encounter, when could they meet again?
