This is as per the Blood Lust Deluxe Hard
Cover book which collected Blood Lust Books 1 and 2, and an
Epilogue not originally used in the original series.
A stunning and pivotal part of Vampirella's history, Blood Lust
was flogged to death in 1997, with the Deluxe Hard Cover of 1978
providing and extra bit to the tale.
On the negative side, the Deluxe Hard Covers were so expensive
it put them out of reach of many Vampirella fans, so they didn't
get to read the story in one volume and have the added Epilogue.
By finally releasing Blood Lust as a relatively reasonably priced
Trade Paperback, Harris has enabled a wider fan base to read the
whole story in one hit.
As a back up to the story there is a "Directors Cut"
article which covers how Joe Jusko worked from the script and thumbnailed,
drafted and then painted some sample pages.
Perhaps the real gem of this book is James Robinson's complete
script for Book II. It is fascinating to see just how detailed a
brief is provided for the artist to follow,and how closely the artist
depicts the written directions.
