Humans have begun to colonize Mars, but something ancient and sinister got there first.  Now Vampirella is faced with a mystery only she can solve, and the bloody realization that some monsters should never be awakened.

Writer Corinna Bechko says, "I've loved Alien since I first saw it as a kid on a crummy old TV in a well-lit room and got scared half to death anyway.  Now that I have the chance to add a little corner to that universe I couldn't be happier.  And pitting such an implacable horror against Vampirella?  That's a meeting that definitely produces very fertile story-telling ground.  The Alien franchise has always thrived with strong women in the lead.  Smart, self-assured Vampirella is a joy to write for, even when she may have met her match."
