I can't find my previous Vampirella posts. Apparently we deleted the char tag. :/

Three modern Vampirella covers and two vintage ones. Predictably, the vintage ones are total crack. Warning: Contains cheesecake and weird alien mind control guys.



So... is that an evil turtle in the bottom left? Evil lizard creature?

Mike Mayhew


Bill Sienkiewicz


I really love this piece.



Vampirella has a flail, guys. She needs to have a flail all the time.



I think this may be the greatest thing ever. MUMMIFIED SPACE ALIEN MIND CONTROL GUY. YEAH. I've never read Vampi #65. What is the story here? I MUST KNOW.


PS. I posted something that isn't Pictures for Sad Children. Go me.

PPS. I feel like we need more vintage comics on Scans Daily. Vintage comics week? Vintage crack week? Vintage cheesecake and crack week? WHO IS WITH ME!?

Why does it look like she's beating up Commissioner Gordon in the second to last one? Although it's so prettttyy...

If she's a vampire why does she have a reflection? =P

Remember, she's not a vampire-vampire, she's a space-alien vampire. Half-breed. With photon flippers or somethin'.

I thought she was the daughter of Lilith?

That was her new edgier origin from the 90's. She was an alien for 30 years before Kurt Busiek of all people retconned it as implanted memories.

I feel like the Sienkiewicz one is some kind of visual pun? Because.. Vampires gotta be beheaded?

As long as comics keep referencing paintings I did desperate last-minute studies of for GCSE Art, I may do JUST THAT!

I really should check out Vampirella someday. She seems like a cool character with some good stories to her, but I always used to write her off as porn because of her costume.

In the current series, the costume does show cleavage, but it's positively modest compared to her "classic" outfit.

Vintage can be fun, but I think you need to define "Vintage" a little more?

That's sort of the thing, "Vintage" is a completely non-period specific term.

Even in wine, it really only means "a year's crop" or "season's crop", it doesn't even mean a GOOD season, just a season.

It's like when Isaac Asimov (or possibly Ray Bradbury) was asked to identify "The true Golden Age of science-fiction" and replied "Twelve".

So if we were tasked to pick our favourite story for an age in our lives it might be a challenge, but you see why "Vintage" is a bit tricky to define. :)

I dunno. Same thing the guy from Temple of Doom did with the hearts, I guess. It's roughly the same pose.

Either that or he's an avid juggler.

I might go through my Essentials and post some vintage stuff. I'm on holiday for the first two weeks of April.
