Only two years ago the #1 top selling issue of Vampirella arrived at comic book stores to celebrate the character’s 50th anniversary (with sales surpassing 130,000 copies).  This week the seventh Dynamite-era Vampirella-centric comic book series begins as multiple incarnations of Vampirella arise in the all-new Vampiverse Publisher Dynamite again has pulled out all the stops for the character, scheduling several cover variants by a variety of creators.  

Check out a preview below of the first issue and several covers from the first three issues of Vampiverse.

Here is the publisher summary of the series:

A different Vampirella for every thread–for every kind of story–across the Fabric of time and space.  A Vampirella of every conceivable notion born to protect her particular reality… but now something–someone–is killing them and stealing away their precious life energies and growing in power.  It is up to the Vampirella of one of these universes to gather some of her special sisters to stop this growing threat and keep it from destroying the Creator of all things–the Artist–and prevent the unraveling of all reality.

Several creators had a hand in developing Vampirella back in 1969, from monster guru Forrest J. Ackerman to artists Trina Robbins, Tom Sutton, and Frank Frazetta, and editor Archie Goodwin.  The new series will be written by Tom Sniegoski and Jeannine Acheson, with interior artwork by Daniel Maine.  Adam Hughes is providing the main cover, with variants available from Stephen Segovia, Maria Sanapo, Glenn Hetrick, Roberto Castro, Madibek Musabekov and others, plus cosplay editions for each issue and a blank sketch cover.

Here is the preview for Issue #1, followed by several cover variants…
