Last month, the Queen of Horror Comics turned forty, but she doesn't look her age! In fact, she's got a new lease on life courtesy of Harris Comics' new series, Vampirella: Second Coming. Writer Phil Hester and artists Daniel Sampere and Al Rio promise a story worthy of the legend. Issue #1 hit the stands last month and was more of a tease than her iconic outfit. I am eager to find out the who, what, and why of this "second coming." It certainly feels as though the character is moving up to the next level. And did I mention that each issue only costs $1.99? At that low price you can easily afford to see for yourself and even buy more than one of the gorgeous variant covers.

I recommend checking out the new series! If you like what you see, there's an easy way to catch up on the last forty years. Harris recently released Vampirella Crimson Chronicles Maximum Volume 1. Over 400 pages of stories beginning with issue #1. At under $20, it is an affordable way to read some great stories featuring fabulous art! My only complaint is that the cover is not the one featured at the top of this post illustrated by Frank Frazetta (no offense to Jim Silke whatsoever).

For a preview of the new series and to see all that has come before, be sure to check out
