Hey, Eric! I know you took a fair amount of crap from puerile fanboys about putting Vampirella in an Armani suit, but speaking as a guy in his (ugh) late 40's who collected and read Vampirella magazines from the Warren Era 70s, I LOVED HER IN THE ARMANI SUIT! She looked fantastic!!
What drew me to the Vampi mags in the 70s wasn't the red one piece, but her struggles--both internal and external. Keep in mind this was before Anne Rice, Buffy, Twilight, Underworld, etc., etc., etc. I was into the horror/supernatural genre as a kid and here was comic series where a vampire was the hero. The only other franchise where you saw this was, of course, Dark Shadows. As if making Vampi a sympathetic heroine wasn't enough, Uncle Forry and Trina Robbins made her an alien to boot! Being that I was also a somewhat a sci-fi geek, I got my horror and sci-fi fix in one mag.
So, to wrap this up. I loved your run of Vampirella and was sorry to you see go!
Flash Gordon in the works - Rock on!!!!
Lets hope lots of movie influences abound!
