Crossover Cover: Vampirella Halloween Special 2013
Vampirella, Dracula, and Eva join forces to battle a coven of witches seeking to resurrect an Elder God. Eva learned about the witches’ plans via a prophecy in a copy of the Necronomicon. The Dracula seen here is a “soul-clone” of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and has encountered Vampi many times before. Eva, Daughter of Dracula, has previously encountered the likes of Ash Williams, the Darkness, and slasher hunters Cassie Hack and Vlad. Vampi, Eva, and Dracula first joined forces in the miniseries Prophecy. In both stories, Dracula denied being Eva’s father. Most likely, she was fathered by a different soul-clone than Vampi’s old foe. The Necronomicon, written by Abdul Alhazred, recurs throughout the Cthulhu Mythos of H.P. Lovecraft.
