Vampirella #1 sells out!

From a news update over at the Dynamite Entertainment website...





The iconic Vampirella is an incredible success at Dynamite Entertainment!

January 7, 2011, Runnemede, NJ - Dynamite Entertainment is pleased to announce that Vampirella #1 has sold out at Diamond!  There are no plans for a second printing at this time (although copies may still be available at your local retailer), but the Vampirella #1 Tim Sale cover (OCT108115E) is still available for re-order!


"I couldn't be happier of the response to Vampirella," says writer Eric Trautmann. "Approaching such an established and beloved character -- particularly with an eye towards creating stories that are both familiar but also take some chances -- is a daunting proposition, so I'm quite pleased that people are responding to it. Stick around; it's going to get a lot crazier!"


"WOW!  All of Dynamite's hard work has paid off with the sell-out of Vampirella #1," says Dynamite President Nick Barrucci. "We hoped for this, and it feels great having achieved a sell-out of the regular covers.  Fortunately we have the Tim Sale covers (OCT108115E) still available."


"Vampirella #1 is our strongest selling independent debut of 2010," says VP of Purchasing of Midtown Comics Gahl Buslov. "It has been outselling many of the recent Marvel and DC #1 titles of the last couple months, even surpassing the sales of the seemingly unsurpassable Boys!"


Look at some of the great reviews we have gotten for Vampirella #1!


  • "Eric Trautmann and Wagner Reiss succeed in putting their mark on Vampirella, creating a new world and a new tone for the original comic book bad girl." —Newsarama

  • "Vampirella promises to be a terrific addition to Dynamite! Eric Trautmann respects the character and Wagner Reis with Inlight Studios recreates the baddest heroic vampire of them all." — Comics Bulletin

"Vampirella #1 is a strong, accessible debut with some real mood and character to it — I just hope it's going to get as outrageous as I've understood the character to be." — Comic Vine
