Later, her license was acquired by Creator/DynamiteComics, who put out a DarkerAndEdgier version for 2010. This series lasted 38 issues, only for the character to be given a reboot by author Nancy Collins. Dynamite's second volume (Vampirella's fourth) continued Vampirella's original continuity before a ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths''-style event resulted in her being banished to a new reality where she had a LighterAndSofter existence. Dynamite's third volume (Vampirella's fifth), which began in 2016, debuted her under a new more conservative costume. A fourth volume, (Vampirella's sixth) will launch in 2017 and appears to have ditched said conservative costume.

* BittersweetEnding: The Vampirella Monthly ended its run on with a costly victory for the good guys: [[spoiler:Vampirella and Pantha manage to stop Dr. Midwinter's ritual to become immortal by sacrificing countless souls to ComicBook/LadyDeath, but Dixie Fattoni is murdered by him and dies in Vee's arms. Her soul is taken to the afterlife by Lady Death while Vampirella grieves her death (as well as her other loved ones) in despair]].


Added DiffLines:

* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Strictly played for the lulz in "Stake Out". One SF bar buddy tells the other how they defeated the gruesome alien plant vampire (maybe [[ShaggyDogStory he made all up]]). The vampire can't be killed with a (wooden) stake. [[spoiler: So the heroes kill him with a [[IncrediblyLamePun steak]].]] (At this point of the story, intergalactic policemen storm the bar. Probably it's the MontyPython "This is silly!" police.)

* BadGirlComic: Perhaps the TropeMaker. The genre of scantily clad female anti-heroes fighting evil didn't really take off until TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks, but Vampirella debuted in 1969. That said, [[UnbuiltTrope her original incarnation was more of a campy space adventure heroine]], with her becoming more of a DarkActionGirl ''after'' her revival in the 1990s.

* SupernaturallyYoungParent: Lilith and her descendants don't age beyond adulthood since they're either demons or demon-lite (vampires). In the Dynamite series there's a dinner scene where Lilith, her daughter Vampirella and son-in-law Adam Van Helsing, and her grandson Lukas Van Helsing are in the same room together. They all appear 30-something.

They all appear 30-something. Though in Lukas's case TimeTravel was also involved, and Adam, while being a normal human, was technically dead at that point.
