Dynamite Entertainment continues the celebration of Vampirella's 50th anniversary with the announcement of a new ongoing series. Vengeance of Vampirella begins in October 2019, featuring the return of prolific Vampirella writer Tom Sniegoski, picking up right where he left off in 1996. Michael Sta. Maria will be handling the artwork for the series.

"If somebody had told me just a few years ago that I'd be able to come back to a character I have great affection for, and pick up with her exactly where I left off 25 years ago, I would've said that it would never happen," said writer Tom Sniegoski. "But here I am, smack dab in the horrific, apocalyptic world that I set up for Vampirella and never got to play in. And I haven't heard the word 'NO' yet, no matter how insane the idea. Just wait until you see Michael Sta. Maria's art, peoples' new favorite Vampirella artist is about to be unleashed! Can you tell I'm excited?"

Vengeance of Vampirella began in 1994, debuting with a cover by Joe Quesada and Jimmy Palmiotti dripping with blood. Sniegoski wrote almost all original Vampirella stories for two and a half years with his epic run concluding with the Death & Destruction limited series, co-written by Christopher Golden and illustrated by Amanda Conner. At long last, Sniegoski returns to the daughter of Drakulon.

This October's Vengeance of Vampirella picks up from that finale, but 25 years later. With Earth's protector against the supernatural felled, humanity lives in ruins, subjugated by monstrosities ruled by Nyx and her Chaos Lords. Vampirella's martyrdom has achieved mythic status among the bands of rebels on the outskirts of society. Everything takes a turn when some think they may be able to resurrect their savior. But she doesn't come back all there at first...

Dynamite Entertainment is rolling out a slew of variant covers for this release including work from Joshua Middleton, Frank Cho, Ben Oliver, and Lucio Parrillo. Joanie Brosas will appear in a cosplay cover too.

"I’m as excited now as I was 25 years ago when my artwork helped relaunch Vampirella and forever attached me to this badass girl from Drakulon.” said classic Vampirella artist Buzz, who is contributing a limited edition incentive cover. “It’s almost kismet that I’ve been invited to celebrate her 50th as I turn 50. We’re both back..with a VENGEANCE!"

"I'm very happy to be part of this book since I'm a huge fan of Vampirella!," said artist Michael Sta. Maria. "My career truly started the day I met Stephen Segovia – who has drawn Vampirella as well. Today he is my mentor, a good friend and a constant inspiration. I hope fans love my Vampi!"

"I could not be happier for Tom to return to Vampirella after all these years. And Tom returns with "a vengeance!". Seriously though, Tom continues to grow as a writer, and this series is just incredible as you'll see to how much he adds to the Vampirella mythos!," said Dynamite CEO and Publisher Nick Barrucci. "And wait until you see Michael Sta. Maria's art - just beautiful!"

As one more treat, Dynamite Entertainment is producing a limited Replica Edition with the original Vengeance of Vampirella #1 cover by Quesada and Palmiotti, including all the editorial and ad pages as well.

Vengeance of Vampirella #1 is set for release in October 2019.
