In July 1969, the world was first introduced to Vampirella. 50 years later, she doesn't look a day older!!!! Now, to celebrate her gold anniversaryersary, Dynamite is launching a brand-new, ongoing series featuring the talents of Christopher Priest (Black Panther, Deathstroke, Quantum & Woody, Justice League) and European star/American star-in-the-making, Ergün Gündüz (Tales of the Great War, Taxi Tales)! You'll experience the first, mysterious taste of things to come in Vampirella Free Comic Book Day #0, and the story continues here!!!

I know NOTHING about Vampirella. Nothing.
Ok, I know the outfit. You caught me.
Besides that, nothing.
OK! Jeez! I know she's been around since before I started reading comics, which means we're in the 70's at least, which means she has a long and storied history. Fine.
So what I do know is that this is a MAJOR push by Dynamite to have a book that is viable for new readers to come in and not feel lost in that long and storied history. It's better written than drawn, but not at all drawn badly. Look for a really sweet splash page while you're flipping through it. Christopher Priest has written a story that will leave you wanting to read the next issue...what else could you ask for in a comic?
I'd give this a 7.5 if I could, but you have to round up, right?
I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
