EXCLUSIVE: Dynamite Offers Free Issue of 'Vampi,' Announces Vampi Omnibus

Read the first issue of the 'Vampi' omnibus due in stores this December here first.

Dynamite Entertainment has announced that this December they will be releasing a 'Vampi' omnibus and to commemorate the release of the collection, Dynamite has given Comic Vine fans an opportunity to read the entire first issue of Vampi for free here first.

The series, which started out as a re-imagining of the popular Dynamite character 'Vampirella' grew to become a unique character of her own. A cross of dystopian sci-fi and the supernatural heavily influenced by Japanese manga, 'Vampi' is a far cry from the traditional 'Vampirella' series. The omnibus will feature the first 18 issues of 'Vampi' as well as the the Vampirella Manga 2099 and Vampi 1/2. The omnibus collects over 430 pages featuring work from David Conway and Kevin Lau. If you loved Vampi, or if you want a very different interpretation of Vampirella, then this might be something you want to add to your holiday wish list.

Huzzah! You gotta love Vampi. She has been thoroughly missed.

How did I miss this in the solicits?! Thanks for the heads-up Bab's and bookmarked.

Wow! That actually wasn't terrible. A tad generic, but I'm kinda a sucker for the whole "reluctant vampire" shtick.

Also, that made me really wanna watch Aeon Flux for some reason. ;)

The covers and majority of the art for Vampi were really great but the stories really fell flat for me when they were published. Guess I am being picky but it is still a great take on the character of Vampirella.

I feel the exact same way. Great reimagining of themes from Vampirella but the stories themselves were just so/so to me.

@RedheadedAtrocitus: Yup. A case of a great concept and great art but low end ideas for stories and writing. Not that I mind "fluff" but they weren't fluff, they were--I don't know--just not to my liking. Still, it'd be great if Vampi had her own series yet again but done a bit better. One can hope.
