Waking from what she thought was the void of death, Vampirella finds
herself back on Drakulon, and in the company of her long-time (and
now deceased) lover Adam van Helsing.
Drakulon is revealed as a region of Hell, ruled by Lilith, Vampirella's
mother. Drakulon is dying, it's rivers of blood have run dry and
the land is ravaged by foragers desperate for blood.
Arriving in the now desolate Kubek'en, Vampirella's native city,
Adam and Vampirella are attacked by Lilith's minions who try to
kill Adam and take Vampirella to Lilith. They fail.
There is a link between Lilith and Drakulon, and there is not enough
energy to sustain them both. Vampirella sides with Drakulon.
