Back in the 1970s, when Vampirella was a b/w magazine...
...the publisher experimented with doing full-color inserts, resulting in this story becoming the first Vampi tale in color!
This never-reprinted tale appeared in Warren's Vampirella Annual #1 (1972).
Written by J R Cochran and illustrated by Vampi's signature artist Jose Gonzalez, this was a retelling of the girl from Drakulon's origin first told by writer Forrest J Ackerman and artist Tom Sutton in the magazine's premiere issue only three years earlier.
(And you thought Marvel and DC rebooted their continuities quickly!).
Ironically, when this story was re-used (in b/w, not color), it was totally-rewritten, and that version has been reprinted several times since (hence the 2.0 designation for this tale).
Be here next week, when we present another tale of classic comic grrl power!
