Vampirella #8 is in stores from Dynamite tomorrow, and the publisher is celebrating Black History Month in the only way any publisher knows how to celebrate anything… with variant covers! This issue of Vampirella features variants by Denys Cowan, Alitha Martinez, Mark Beachum and Afua Richardson imagining what Vampirella would look like if inspired by African-American women when she was created back in 1969, a concept devised by writer Christopher Priest.
Dynamite has provided Bleeding Cool with an EX-X-XVLUSIVE extended preview, with interior pages you can't see anywhere else (unless you buy the comic, or unless someone copies and pastes our preview pages like we do to theirs, which would ultimately be fair.
Check out the preview and those sweet variants below:
(W) Christopher Preist (A) Giovanni Timpano (CA) Denys Cowan, Alitha Martinez, Mark Beachum, Afua Richardson, Cosplay, Lucio Parrillo, Fay Dalton, Roberto Castro, Meghan Hetrick
Mysterious alien creatures secreted within the mountains of the British Virgin Islands capture Vampirella and transport her home to Drakulon just as Vampi's best bud, Benny the Witch, is about to become a human sacrifice. Will Vampirella give up life on her home world to save yet another human? Will Benny be the guest of honor at a native barbecue?
Also this month: Dynamite Entertainment commemorates the contributions of African American creators of color with a special set of variant covers from some of the industry's top talent!
