VAMPIRELLA was originally a comic book vampire super-heroine created by Forrest J Ackerman and comic book artist Trina Robbins in September 1969 for Warren Publishing's black-and-white horror-comics magazine Vampirella #1 and continued until issue #112 (March 1983). Vampirella was the sister magazine to Warren's horror anthologies Creepy and Eerie. Like those magazines' respective mascots, Uncle Creepy and Cousin Eerie, Vampirella hosted horror stories, though unlike them, she would also star in her own story, which would headline each issue. 

By 1970 writer-editor Archie Goodwin developed the character from a token horror-story hostesses (in which capacity she remained until issue #8) and into the leading character of the title.
