* 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.

* 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 HumanAlien from the planet Drakulon where blood is like water.]]

* ''[[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.
