Added DiffLines:

* DependingOnTheArtist: Vampirella's outfit is sometimes drawn as a one-piece, form-fitting swimsuit with a massive CleavageWindow and [[SexyBack open back]], but other times as a tiny, physics-defying strip of fabric that pretty much only covers her nipples and crotch. Her body type also fluctuates between voluptuous and muscular, and some artists give her a very youthful, almost teenage appearance while others draw her as a grown woman.

* UnnecessaryMakeover: Vampirella's already skimpy costume became even more so and they relied more on her MsFanservice qualities versus actual character.

Added DiffLines:

* CrapsackWorld: More like a Crapsack Universe since the conflict of OrderVersusChaos has filled the world with supernatural monsters which prey on humans. "Good" guys exist but even they tend to be DarkIsNotEvil types and KnightTemplar heroes at best.


Added DiffLines:

* LovecraftLite: Vampirella is a character who exists in a world filled with countless evil gods, eldritch abominations, supernatural horrors, and sci-fi creatures of the night. The gods of order and balance aren't much better either. Vampirella, however, will kick all of their ass.

Added DiffLines:

* HotterAndSexier: Despite already being one of the most provocatively dressed stars in comic books, Harris Comics began the process of making her costume more and more like "Dental Floss" as Trina Robbins said. Doubles as an UnnecessaryMakeover.

* KudzuPlot: After the relatively straightforward plots of the first twenty issues, the series gradually started returning older elements of the series without bothering to explain where they came from or who they were. It climaxed with Vampirella journeying 100 years to the future with a cameo by the WesternAnimation/TheJetsons (!) in order to have an apocalyptic battle with Professor Quartermass and her adult son who is King of Hell. Oh and all from the perspective of her NiceGuy stalker Thomas Criswell with the help of a gigantic talking rabbit.

Later, her license was acquired by Creator/DynamiteComics who put out a DarkerAndEdgier version for 2010 which lasted 38 issues only to reboot the character with author Nancy Collins. Dynamite's 1st volume (Vampirella's fourth) continued Vampirella's original continuity before a ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths''-style event which resulted in Vampirella being banished to a new reality where she had a LighterAndSofter existence. They have since released a third volume (Vampirella's fifth) which debuted her under a new more conservative costume. Dynamite Entertainment has also re-released the original Warren comics in archive editions.

Vampirella was created in 1969 by Forrest J. Ackerman and Trina Robbins for Warren Publishing's black and white horror anthology magazine of the same name.

In her first tale, Vampirella was an inhabitant of the planet Drakulon, which had blood instead of water, which gave rise to a race of vampiric HumanAliens. After arriving on Earth, Vampi devoted herself to fighting evil of all kinds, as well as falling in love with one Adam Van Helsing while trying to avoid the stake of his father Conrad. 112 Issues would be published of Vampirella Magazine, which would print its last in 1983.

The series was revived in TheNineties by Harris Publications. This resulted in Vampirella's origin being changed to becoming the daughter of Lilith who had been brainwashed into believing she was an alien from Drakulon. They would publish 46 issues of Vampirella across two volumes with the last years marked by a large number of crossovers.

Later, her license was acquired by Creator/DynamiteComics who put out a DarkerAndEdgier version for 2010 which lasted 38 issues only to reboot the character with author Nancy Collins before starting the series over with a new costume under Kate Leth. The first series continued Vampirella's original continuity before a ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths''-style event which resulted in Vampirella being banished to a new reality where she had a LighterAndSofter existence.
