VAMPIRELLA update

Amanda Conner coming back to title

By Rob Allstetter     September 13, 2002

Amanda Conner returns as new regular cover artist of Harris Comics' VAMPIRELLA beginning with #15.


Conner's association with the title character goes back into the late 1990s when she illustrated, along with her regular inker Jimmy Palmiotti, a series of stories written by the likes of Warren Ellis (VAMPIRELLA LIVES), Grant Morrison and Mark Millar (VAMPIRELLA: ASCENDING EVIL) and Christopher Golden and Tom Sniegoski (VAMPIRELLA: DEATH AND DESTRUCTION).


"It's a pleasure to have Amanda back to being associated with Vampirella," says editor Maureen McTigue. "Her artistic style can match and bring forth the sexiness, humor, horror, or kinetic action that turns up in the book."


Conner's covers will be the regular version of each book. The monthly title will continue to have limited alternate covers by a variety of artists.


VAMPIRELLA #15 begins a new story arc, "The Pack," written by Jay Faerber and illustrated by Matthew Clark and Ron Randall. Alternate cover artists are Tony Harris (#15), Karl Waller (#16), Matthew Clark (#17), and Nelson DeCastro (#18).


"The Pack" will be a four-issue story arc starting in November. The story dwells on the supernatural and takes Vampirella on a twisting ride cross country. Vampirella investigates a series of murders in the Pacific Northwest. She finds herself on the wrong end of the law, but is able to pull in an ally. Discovering a frightening truth, Vampirella heads east, and tracks this new horror through the New York City subway.


"The Pack' is unlike anything I've ever written," Faerber says. "It's an odd mix of horror and crime, and features Vampirella taking on a pack of werewolves who are making life hell for campers in the Pacific Northwest. Helping (or hindering, depending on your point of view) Vampirella is a sly police detective who doesn't realize the true nature of the killings he's investigating."
