[quote]Nancy A. Collins has spent the last twenty years writing novels, short stories, and comic books for fans of the supernatural, paranormal, and fantastical. Her prose works include Sunglasses After Dark, featuring punk vampire slayer Sonja Blue, the YA series Vamps, a collection of Weird Western tales called Dead Man’s Hand, and a collection of Southern Gothic stories entitled Knuckles & Tales. Her comic book work includes Swamp Thing, Jason vs. Leatherface, Machina Jones, and Predator: Hell Come A’Walkin.

Artist Patrick Berkenkotter is a staple of Dynamite Entertainment, having contributed artwork to such titles as Red Sonja, Dark Shadows/Vampirella, Project: Superpowers, and two Dynamite/Marvel crossovers, Avengers/Invaders and The Torch. “I cannot sing Vampirella artist Patrick Berkenkotter’s praises loudly of often enough,” says Collins. “His pencils are spectacular, and he’s able to make her sexy, menacing, and bad-ass all at the same time. I think the fans are going to be pleased with his work when they pick up Vampirella #1, and I hope they take me to heart as well.” "My first exposure to Nancy’s writing was in the pages of Swamp Thing, and I’ve always remembered her run. When Gail (Simone) suggested Nancy to write one of the anniversary stories in Legends of Red Sonja, it was a great reminder of how good of a writer Nancy is. As we were prepping for Vampirella’s relaunch, and were discussing potential writers, Joe (Rybandt, Sr. Editor) commented that since we all liked Nancy’s Red Sonja story, why not approach her.[/quote]

The first stop on their monster world tour is Thailand, where Vampirella must hunt down and kill a horrific creature known as the Krasue–which appears only at night as the head of a beautiful woman–attached to nothing but a heart, a pair of lungs and a mass of entrails![/quote]

In “The Dragon Chariot”, the third chapter in “The Accursed” story arc, fresh outbreak of the dreaded ‘black rabies’—a plague that turns those who suffer from it into raving homicidal maniacs—sends Vampirella and The Kabal’s top field agent, the werewolf Tristan to Athens, Greece, in search of the second Accursed involved in Dr. Faustus’ plan to end the world. The evil alchemist’s co-conspirator is none other than the legendary sorceress Medea, scorned wife of the hero Jason and granddaughter of the sun-god Helios, who was cursed with immortality by Zeus for murdering her own children. Can Vampirella and her new allies stop Medea before she spreads the contagion throughout the world and uncover the identity of the mysterious source of the cursed blood used to create the murder plague?[/quote]
