You Can Have A Page from This Early Amanda Conner Vampirella Comic

When it comes to power couples in comics, it doesn't get much more iconic than Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti. Known for turning Harley Quinn into one of DC's most popular ongoing titles, making Power Girl a breakout comedic hit along with co-writer Justin Gray, the multimedia entertainment company PaperFilms many, many, many successful Kickstarters, and, of course, for long, winding autograph lines at comic book conventions, the married couple are living legends of the medium by anyone's estimation. Now, you can own an early collaboration between the two with this page from Vengeance of Vampirella, which Conner drew and Palmiotti inked from a script by Tom Sniegoski.
