Dynamite Entertainment has announced that it is set to mark All Hallow’s Eve this October with a standalone Vampirella story from writer Christopher Priest which serves as a jumping on point for new readers following the writer’s ‘Seduction of the Innocent’ cycle in the pages of Vampirella #0-14.
In the tale, the space-vampire “superhero” Vampirella has her secret identity of Ella Normandy outed on social media. A wide selection of deeply dysfunctional fans surface, as others further judge and debate her presence, and two of these fans claim to be ghosts and seek out Vampi’s help to avenge their murders.
“Having just come off a fairly complex journey in our first arc, I thought, well, now that the innocent has been seduced, let’s pause a minute to catch our breath before launching into the next escalation of our Vampirella saga,” said writer Christopher Priest. “Halloween is the best time for ghost stories, and I’ve personally not read one where Vampi teams up with any, so why not? New reader-friendly, ‘Hypnagogia’ draws us into a ghostly detective plot as Vampi contemplates what’s coming next for her now that she’s become America’s most famous vampire!”
The issue will come with the following covers from artists Lucio Parrillo, Peach Momoko, Butcher Billy and Ergun Gunduz, along with a body paint ‘cosplay’ cover from Intraventus:
Vampirella #15 will go on sale in October 2020.
