Vampirella, seen here in her now synonymously iconic pose, firm, authoritative stance and commanding gaze, is perhaps the most memorable of Vampirella’s appearances. First designed by José González in 1969 and later in September 1972’s Super Special Issue, one of the many collected annuals of Vampirella, the work also marked the introduction of Carol de Haro as the real life model for Vampirella, appearing on covers and in comic strips throughout the 70’s. Now, taking the striking image that José González is best known for, X PLUS has created the pose in immaculate detail, from the individual strands of hair and subtle musculature, to the signature vampire bat perched atop Vampirella’s outstretched, delicate hand. As a welcome embellishment, Vampirella has an entirely new, but particularly thematic base to stand upon. A mound of bones and skulls rest at her feet. Upon closer inspection, fans may notice that these aren’t human skulls, but ones belonging to fellow vampires, with the telltale hint of fangs on each.
