She came from a dying world in search of adventure, love...and blood!

The year was 1969. Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon. Over 300,000 music lovers flooded into a farm outside Woodstock, NY for the ultimate concert. The Beatles recorded their final album.

And crashing to Earth aboard a damaged spacecraft was a refugee from the distant planet Drakulon, whose inhabitants had drunk from rivers of blood―until they ultimately ran dry. A lone survivor of a dead planet who discovered that the sustenance she needed in order to live flowed not in rivers but in the veins of the humans of this strange new world. 

A huntress named . . . Vampirella!

In From the Stars...a Vampiress, bestselling author Steven A. Roman examines the Warren Publishing adventures of the queen of the bad girls whose reign has lasted through five decades of published comic books, novels, and magazines, and turns a critical eye toward her sole motion picture appearance—as well as the 1970s movie version that might have been.

Combined with an extensive checklist of her Warren Era appearances and rare behind-the-scenes material, From the Stars is a smorgasblood of information for Vampirella fans!

This book is unofficial and unauthorized. It is not authorized, approved, licensed, or endorsed by Dynamite Entertainment or any of its licensees. Vampirella is a trademark of Dynamite Entertainment.

“This is without a doubt the essential, authoritative reference book for anything related to the Warren-era Vampirella. There are lots of books out there with good information, but none offers such a broad, all-encompassing look at the history of this character.” —Vampirella of Drakulon (news site)

“Not only a fantastic reference guide, but it is also a love letter to the fanged horror heroine. Libraries that specialize in comics should consider including this volume in their collection as well. Highly recommended.”Monster Librarian

“Everything you always wanted to know about Vampirella and then some! I was particularly enthralled reading about Hammer Films’ never-made film version of Vampirella and the big ballyhoo that happened at the 1975 Famous Monsters Convention. Bravo to author Steven A. Roman and Foreword legend Sean Fernald!”—Sam Irvin, director of Elvira’s Haunted Hills and co-executive producer of Gods and Monsters

“Roman clearly has a love for the subject and his writing is conversational in tone, with a bounce to it that makes it very readable…. This is an excellent volume for the Vampirella connoisseur and an education for folks like me, who didn’t know too much and who want to learn.”—Taliesin Meets the Vampires

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
