Vampirella Sales Figures

Circulation as Reported in Publishers' Statements of Ownership
Filed with the United States Postal Service

Vampirella was a black-and-white horror comics anthology title, like its sister publications at Warren PublishingCreepy and Eerie. The sultry titular character starred in the main story of each issue and served as the host for the other features.

Warren declared bankruptcy shortly after the final issue of Vampirella, and Harris Publications acquired the rights to the title, publishing several comics series and mini-series as well as reprints of the original Warren material.

Dynamite Entertainment acquired the rights to Vampirella in early 2010 and launched a number of reprint volumes, as well as new stories. Some direct-market only information on these later series is available in the monthly reports.
