My Comic Shop describes the book, “Published by James Warren, who gave fandom Famous Monsters, Eerie, Creepy, and other great magazines, Vampirella is a horror anthology series that featured stories and art by such genre giants as Richard Corben, Neal Adams, Archie Goodwin, Steve Englehart, Don Glut, Wally Wood, and many, many others.”

They continue, “This first issue includes the following: “Vampirella’s Welcome” by Bill Parente and Frank Frazetta; “Vampirella of Draculon” by Forrest J Ackerman (who had a hand in creating vampi vixen Vampirella) and Tom Sutton; “Death Boat” by Don Glut and Billy Graham; “Two Silver Bullets” by Don Glut and Mike Royer; “Spaced-Out Girls” by Don Glut, Bill Fraccio, and Tony Tallarico; and “Room Full of Changes” by Nicola Cuti and Ernie Colon.”

For collectors, My Comic Shop notes “a commemorative edition of this magazine was published in October 2001. It is very similar to the original, but can be easily identified by the $4.95 cover price (original 1969 edition was 50c cover priced), and an indica noting it as the commemorative edition.”

An original CGC graded 8.5 copy is listed on eBay for $1,900.

A separate listing has a CGC 3.5 copy listed for $1,499.99.
