Harris Comics, publisher of Vampirella, is proud to announce that it will ship 20,000 copies of Vampirella: Second Coming #1 to direct market comic book stores. The issue arrives on September 10. The extremely strong showing positions the comic as a possible Top 100 comic book and makes it the most shipped Vampirella comic book since 2001. Harris Comics would like to remind fans and retailers that the comic is still available for advance reorder using the codes below. With the Second Coming knocking on the door of the Top 100, additional re-orders can put it over the top.

The combination of a buck-the-trend $1.99 price, four spectacular covers and a decorated and talented creative team have propelled Vampirella: Second Coming to becoming one of the most successful independent comic books of 2009. The issue kicks off a game changing Vampirella miniseries that will redefine the character for the 21st Century. The miniseries also marks Vampirella’s 40th Anniversary.

Written by Eisner Award nominee Phil Hester (The Darkness) with art by red-hot newcomer Daniel Sampere, the Second Coming will fundamentally alter Vampirella, her universe and her stories forever. Here is the provocative solicitation in this month’s Previews:

“Vampirella is not real. Like Marilyn Monroe and Bettie Page she’s a cultural phenomenon now woven into society’s DNA, a symbol of sensuality and power. So thinks a group of women who become increasingly and inexplicably fascinated with her, getting Vampi tattoos, researching her story and seeking each other out to celebrate her. But as a virus ravages Washington, possessing any man it comes across and liberating their darkest desires, these women feel a call from something… or someone… to battle this new threat. Who is doing this to them? Is Vampirella real after all?”

Vampirella: The Second Coming #1 is 20 pages of full color story with no interior ads. It features covers by best selling artist Arthur Suydam (Marvel Zombies), fan favorites Joe Jusko (Tomb Raider) and Ryan Stegman (Grimm’s Fairy Tales) and the final Vampirella cover by the legendary Jose Gonzalez.


All four covers can be ordered with the following codes:

Vampirella: The Second Coming #1 Suydam Edition JUL09 0648

Vampirella: The Second Coming #1 Gonzalez Edition JUL09 0649

Vampirella: The Second Coming #1 Stegman Edition JUL09 0650

Vampirella: The Second Coming #1 Jusko Edition JUL09 0651

A special retailer incentive is also offered: for every forty copies ordered retailers can also order one Arthur Suydam Museum Edition.

Vampirella is published by Harris Comics. Celebrating her 40th Anniversary in 2009, Vampirella still stands as a universally recognized icon of horror comics and culture. Fans can follow her exploits online at Vampirella.com, at Facebook.com/Vampirella and on Twitter, @realvampirella.
