Mark the date on your calendars! Dynamite Entertainment has a bright eyed baby vampire to bring into the world this December. VAMPIRELLA: YEAR ONE #6 is set to feature the first ever appearance of Vampirella's very own baby!
Vampirella made her debut appearance over 50 years ago, back in 1969's Vampirella #1. Both her devilish, blonde-haired sister Draculina and her sometimes cousin/sometimes ally Evily the Witch followed the next issue. The Vampi mythos has grown over the years with more character introductions like her mother Lilith, allies Pendragon, Conrad and Adam Van Helsing, Pantha, and many more. Legendary writer Christopher Priest has even introduced a handful of new characters in his continuing acclaimed tenure on the franchise that started by celebrating that 50th anniversary. Now in the finale of his latest chapter, one of the most exciting additions to the cast will make their debut! But is the child a blessing, or curse?
First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in a baby carriage. But in Vampirella's world, life doesn't always go according to the fairy tales. Her complicated marriage with Matt Ecsed was motivated in part by a goal of preventing a curse that would resurrect and empower the devious Dracula, king of the vampires. In the epic finale of Vampirella / Dracula: Unholy, the Daughter of Drakulon became a widow, and now carries her late husband's child. Then in the hotly anticipated Year One, Priest and artist Ergün Gündüz have been reaching back and expanding on Vampi's earliest days as a rebellious teen on her home planet and what lead her to her adoptive Earth. In moments between these flashbacks, the saga continues with her pregnancy.
Dynamite invites fans to be a part of history and add this major turning point in the tapestry to their collections as Year One concludes with a big bang, before Priest then moves on to the next set of twists and turns in his nearly 50 issue run. But the ultimate question is, just like their departed father before them - is this baby a blessing or a curse for our dear Vampirella?
The image in this release is from Vampirella: Year One #1. Fans will have to stay tuned and pick up the finale for the official unveiling of Vampi's baby.

Jump in with Vampirella on her latest rollercoaster adventure through time and space, as she attempts to thwart an evil sorceress who wants Vampi's own body! Join Jeff Parker and Benjamin Dewey for Vampirella: Mindwarp this September.
The conniving Baroness Gruzal already has her ancient crown that bestows her dreadful powers of sorcery, but she's hungry for more. She wants to live a thousand years, if not more, and everyone's favorite immortal vampiress has what she wants. How will the Daughter of Drakulon escape the clutches of a foe that wants her power, her immortality, and her flesh and blood?
"Getting to work with Ben Dewey on a book again is a rare joy, and then for it to be classic Vampirella puts this over the top for me," said writer Jeff Parker. "Drawing monsters and mystic weirdness is a strength of his, but it's the personality he gives Vampi that really makes this sing. I think readers are going to be pleasantly surprised by the places this story goes. The Baroness is a very forward foe who doesn't hide her obsession with Vampi. Also, we're not forgetting that in addition to being a horror book, Vampirella was also gothic romance back in the day."
Vampirella is busy minding her own business, on a romp through the supernatural-prone New Orleans to tussle with some werewolves and catch some gumbo. Little does she know, a young man named Ren is stalking her, at the behest of Gruzal. When his plan doesn't quite go as expected, he becomes Vampi's begrudging sidekick of sorts, as she attempts to thwart Gruzal. At least until the two find their minds transported back to 1969, Vampirella in her own younger body and Ren in the body of her magician ally Pendragon. Could her boyfriend Adam Van Helsing be too far?
Jeff Parker (Aquaman, Future Quest) and Benjamin Dewey (Namor, The Autumnlands) invite fans to warp alongside them back to Vampirella's classic origin era. As she swaps one of her sleek modern costumes for a Jose Gonzalez inspired classic take. In depicting that, they're joined by a squad of great cover artists. Joseph Michael Linsner and Lesley "Leirix" Li are beloved by Vampi fans. While Dewey contributes a cover as well, alongside Jonathan Case. Cosplayer Katie Baker rounds out the crew.
