Westfield: What about Vampirella attracts you to the character?

Kate Leth: A few things – I’ve wished to do something better to the horror spectrum for awhile, as well as I like anything supernatural.

Westfield: She’s sporting a new look in this series. exactly how did that come about?

Westfield: who are a few of the other characters aside from Vampirella that visitors will satisfy in the series?

Leth: We begin with Tristan as well as Coleridge, two terrific characters that Nancy Collins did an fantastic task with, complying with Vampirella to LA. From there we satisfy a pr agent named Juliette Court, a mysterious villain who goes by Slade, as well as a cinema owner, Genevieve, whose past as well as allegiances are murky at best… particularly where Juliette is concerned.

Westfield: You’re working with artist Eman Casallos on the book. What can you state about your collaboration?

Leth: Eman’s fantastic. I couldn’t be happier with all of his art that I’ve seen so far – his action sequences are a few of the very best I’ve ever seen. I like his expressions, although my much-loved bits are the monsters. He encourages me to up the brutality, in addition to the comedy. I’m truly lucky to be working with him.
