In the Newsarama article, Vampirella's not in her costume the first issue? Vampirella is her costume. I want to see a Warrenesque Vampirella.
I don't want to read a Politically Correct Vampirella.
It's things like this that make me decide whether to buy one issue or buy all 4 variant covers.
The writing sounds interesting but a PC costume might dull it.
I have to disagree, however, at the notion that Vampirella is nothing more than a costume, and if she is, then that's not really a book I want to read (and I'm willing to bet that I'm not alone in that belief).
In all honesty, (and strictly in my opinion) a gorgeous, statuesque woman in an immaculately tailored Armani suit kicking ass is far more alluring and powerful, which is the goal here. It has nothing to do with "political correctness," I assure you. No one came to me and said, "Oh, you have to do this, because we're worried people might be offended."
I asked for the "costume" change because, in the context of the story I'm trying to tell, a "costume" doesn't make sense; there's a harder, more realistic tone I'm hoping to strike, so actual clothing makes more sense than going into battle in a costume.
Your own mileage may (and probably does) vary, but Dynamite will certainly be making the Warren material available to you, so you can still get "your" Vampirella.
Always remember, Murphy was an optimist

I'm definitely interested in seeing the direction they really take this. Sounds intriguing so far
