Dynamite Entertainment has announced that Christopher Priest’s acclaimed expansion of the Vampirella mythos is set to continue this coming February as the Daughter of Drakulon’s sister Draculina takes centre stage in her very own spinoff series from Priest and artist Michael Sta. Maria (Vengeance of Vampirella).
“The book is about one child and two destinies,” said writer Christopher Priest. “It is a metaphor for life: the road not traveled. Every day each of us make choices that lead to varying consequences which affect our reality. That is what we are seeing here: Lilith’s choices splitting reality and the consequences that brings.”
With her appearance following right after her sister Vampirella with the second issue of the original magazine, Draculina has appeared in sporadic, yet memorable roles since through the years. That all changes this February, as critically acclaimed and history making writer Christopher Priest (Black Panther, Deathstroke) and franchise favorite Michael Sta. Maria (Vengeance of Vampirella) spin her off into her own series that fans of the franchise and newcomers alike will not want to pass up.
As seen in Priest’s Vampirella and Sacred Six sagas, now also continued in Vampirella/Dracula: Unholy, the original Draculina was a surprise reveal for longtime readers. Now she finds herself “attached” to the new character of homeless, preteen vamp-groupie Katie, with their souls linked a la a twisted Shazam. With her new presence on Earth, Draculina is going by the alias “River East” and playing the part of a high-profile socialite celebrity. All while her machinations of an evil agenda of retribution near its kickoff.
Will these two unique and headstrong women, one young and one much, much older, be able to both survive through Draculina’s devilish plans, and will their connection reveal truths to each other?
Draculina #1 will go on sale in February 2022.
