In FEAST OF SHADOWS, the first in the six-part OUR LADY OF SHADOWS story arc. Vampirella is sent by the Vatican to investigate the kidnapping of a little girl by Ethan Shroud and the Chaos cultists, only to become the centerpiece of a ritual invoking Lady Umbra, the sister-bride of Chaos, that leaves her marked as a living sacrifice to the dark goddess who rules the shadows. VAMPIRELLA is back with a new #1 and returns to her horror roots with Bram Stoker Award-winning author Nancy A. Collins (Swamp Thing, Sunglasses After Dark, Jason vs. Leatherface) and Patrick Berkenkotter (Avengers/Invaders, Red Sonja). Superstar illustrator Terry Dodson will provide the main cover, while a veritable who's who of industry talent will provide variant collectible covers. Be sure to order plenty of copies of Vampirella #1, as it hits comic stores everywhere in June!

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.

The coloring doesn't really work for me.

You know, I'm an unapologetic fan of comic babes and cheesecake, but I cannot get over the fact that that is the most impractical outfit in all of comics. And Power Girl is my favorite female superhero.

If she had another outfit I would more than likely check this book out. But if I buy this, I am going to feel extremely embarrassed buying this. I can only imagine how people would look at me...

That's a ridiculous reason to not pick up a comic.

@nova_prime_: It's not redicullus in the least. I don't want to go to a public place and pick up a comic book with an almost naked girl on the cover and give it to any of the cashiers at the book store, who are almost all females that I go to school with.
