Vampi! She’s from the planet Drakulon, where EVERYBODY is a vampire, and please don’t ask me too many questions about that because it doesn’t make very much sense. But she’s been an interesting character for decades, now… and has a WEALTH of truly great artists, such as Frank Frazetta, Sanjulian, Gonzalo Mayo, and many others.
Sanjulian was one of Vampi’s best artists, during one of her best periods. The poor girl went through a huge run of truly atrocious comics in the 1990’s, when the “bad girl” craze was so big, and Vampirella fell prey to imbeciles that think “adult” writing means lots of blood and bodies to make it edgy, and artists apparently decided that Vampirella’s costume covered too much of her (?????!!!!) so her costume became little more than a thong. But Sanjulian… ahh… Sanjulian. He was a man (like Frazetta) who could draw a woman in a costume THIS skimpy, and still have her radiate power and class.
A couple Sanjulian versions of the vampire lady.
THE “FAVORITE” LIST SO FAR…
#25: Scarlet Witch
#24: Chance Falconer
——- DOWN BELOW IS JUST A REHASH OF WHY I’M DOING THIS LIST ———
I’ve been thinking about women, lately. Women characters in comics. Women creators in comics. Female characters in literature. And pretty girls riding around on bicycles or walking along the sidewalk, etc, etc. Because of this, I’ve decided to make An Entirely Useless List. Why is it entirely useless? Because it’s my top 25 female characters from comics and literature, and such lists change at whim and at a breakneck pace. It’s IMPOSSIBLE to quantify favorites… the term favorite is far too malleable. A list of my best friends from high school, for instance, would not include anyone with whom I’m currently in contact. Times change. Still… I’m making the list. Why? I suppose I just like thinking about women.
