* Vampires in ''ComicBook/{{Baltimore}}'' are the offspring of the Red Death, who's basically the GodOfEvil. Vampires were once the dominant species on Earth, but as [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve mankind found other gods to worship]] the Red Death and vampires lost their power until they eventually went dormant. That is, until the carnage of World War I reawakened them.

* ComicBook/{{Vampirella}} is a vampire, since she is the daughter of Lilith and needs blood to survive and has many of the typical vampiric powers, including superhuman physical abilities, shapeshifting into a bat, immortality, and a mesmeric stare. She is not prone to the race's traditional weaknesses, such as daylight, holy water, garlic, or crosses. [[DependingOnTheWriter Alternatively, she's a Human Alien from the planet Drakulon where blood is like water.]]
** Becomes a plot point in "Death's Dark Angel" where, being a Drakulonian rather than an Earth vampire, [[spoiler:Vampirella's bite doesn't infect Wade with vampirism but rather kills him.]] We later learn in "... And be a Bride of Chaos" that [[spoiler:the influence of Chaos is the reason why Dracula's brand of vampirism is different from the original Drakulonian.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Various kinds of vampires appear in ''Comicbook/{{Hellboy}}'', from human hybirds bred by the Nazis in the Second World War to bestial ghouls of Mexican folklore. The European vampires fit the ClassicalMovieVampire mould, but they have been in hiding for centuries, waiting for the day when [[WeHaveBecomeComplacent humans forget how to fight them]].

** ''ComicBook/FiendsOfTheEasternFront'': Subverted; the vampires play almost every single vampire trope straight. They drink blood, are hurt by sunlight so they only appear during the night, they sleep in coffins, they can turn into both bats and wolves (as well as mist), they're vulnerable to crosses and garlic, they can't cross water, and can be killed by decapitation, fire, silver bullets, and a stake to the heart. About the only one missing is the vampire invitation.

* Durham Red of 'ComicBook/StrontiumDog'' is immune to diseases and toxins and doesn't age. She has long fangs and uses them to drink blood from people and animals, which she needs to survive. Red's condition is never treated as supernatural, and it isn't. Rather, it is a form of mutation caused by strontium-90 fallout, which happened to cause a condition similar to folkloristic vampirism in her particular case.

* Vampires in ''ComicBook/RequiemVampireKnight'' are the ruling class of the world of Résurrection. As per usual they're aristocratic, pale (mostly), beautiful (sometimes), proud, vulnerable to silver and just plain evil. As per unusual, they're often addicted to a drug called the Black Opium to help them forget their past sins, and they're not immortal but are as susceptible to regression as anyone else in Resurrection; only receiving Dracula's [[FountainOfYouth Dark Kiss]] makes you immune to [[MerlinSickness rejuvenation]], and that's pretty hard to come by. Rebirth as a vampire in Resurrection is reserved for humans who were complete monsters in life.
