* ''[[ComicBook/WarlordOfMars Warlord of Mars: Dejah Thoris]]'' has the Vathek, an alien race from the planet Saturn that [[HumanAliens resemble humans very closely]] with [[UndeathlyPallor pale skin]], [[FangsAreEvil sharp fangs]] and [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]]. Despite looking like classic vampires, their condition is caused by a plague that turned them into blood-thirsty monsters and they use the Palidor, another Saturnian race that is immune to their plague, as blood farms. The Vathek are sensitive to sunlight, so they cover their planet with dust that filters it, are capable of forging a mind link with another person by drinking their blood and its implied they can convert others into Vathek, though its never explicitly shown. One Vathek in love with Dejah Thoris, [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe a Red Martian]], offers to turn her into his vampire bride by drinking her blood and giving some of his own, but ultimately refuses.

* Vampires in ''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.

* ''TheWizardOfId'' discussed this trope in the June 2, 2013 (Sunday) strip. Dracula visits the local bar and the others discuss the differences in vampires. Dracula then confesses that's why he doesn't get out much.

* Durham Red of ''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.

* 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.

* The Vampires in Creator/JackChick's "First Bite" are not only capable of getting pregnant (and impregnating others), but also lose their fangs once converted to Christianity. This one does make sense, from point of view of mainstream theology and conventional mythology. Vampirism is either a curse from God, a punishment for sin, or it's a dark blessing from Satan. Sincerely accepting Christ into one's heart would indeed be more than enough to gain absolution of one's sins, and obviously Satan would have to withdraw his blessing from someone who truly and sincerely loved God. This ''might'' be the first and only time Chick [[ShownTheirWork did his homework]].

* Lampshaded in ''TheUnwritten''. Since the comic is all about stories interacting with the real world, when one character gets turned into a vampire, his friends have to run tests to figure out which author's vampire rules are in play.

* Cassidy from ''{{Preacher}}'' is a vulgar, foul-mouthed, grungy character who looks and acts human for almost all intents and purposes. His hair and nails grow, he breathes, he has apparently fathered children (although we never meet any), he has human-temperature skin and bleeds if he's cut. Holy symbols have no effect on him, he casts a reflection and can be photographed, he eats and drinks (and drinks, and drinks...) like a mortal, but needs blood for healing wounds and prolonging his life. He can drink nonhuman blood just fine and prefers getting it from rare steak, and only bites humans if they're trying to kill him. He can't change shape. He doesn't age. Sunlight causes his body to burst into flames but nothing else can kill him, up to and including being shot by the Saint of Killers. Stakes don't kill him, but they hurt, and he has also survived decapitation. He doesn't even have fangs! Despite this, the word "vampire" is never used. The closest the book comes is Cassidy referring to himself as "the V word".
