Eric Trautmann to pen 'Vampirella'

Dynamite Entertainment has unveiled Eric Trautmann as the writer on its Vampirella series.

Illustrated by Wagner Reis, the upcoming book sees the vampiress cross paths with a sinister force while tracking her nemesis Vlad Dracula.

"It's a genuine pleasure to be adding to the 'legend' of Vampirella," said Trautmann. "There's a long roster of talented creators - Forrest Ackerman, Archie Goodwin, Kurt Busiek, Warren Ellis, James Robinson, Grant Morrison to name just a few - have cast a long shadow over Vampirella.

"It's an honour to be able to add to that long, rich history, and add some of my own peculiar brand of weirdness to it all. I think people will be really surprised by Wagner's work; he brings a real sense of realism and danger to the page, and manages to create a sexy, intelligent, dangerous Vampirella."

Vampirella debuted in 1969 as a horror story hostess in Vampirella #1. After being revamped as a protagonist, the character has featured in books by Warren Publishing and Manga as well as several dual company crossovers.

Dynamite's Vampirella #1 arrives in stores in November.
