No story at all in this comic book, at least, no Vampirella story.
There are a series of interviews (and lots of photos) about the 2001 Vampirella Model Competition.
A breakdown of the day they did the casting call is followed by a piece on how the final
twelve would be whittled down via the fans voting for their favourite Vampirella online.
There are interviews with the models who made it to the final four (Dawn Olivieri, Kimberly
Mann, Jill Nicolini and Maria di Angelis).
The interview with the winner, Maria di Angelis,
takes up half the book and has many stunning photos.
Sorry, Maria. I didn't vote for you. Mind you the model I voted for didn't even make it
into the top four (before you ask, after much soul searching I voted for Kim Wayman).
However, I have to say that I think that Maria became one of the best Vampirella models
I think this was great idea to find a new cover model, and a great way to build up the
hype for the new 2001 Monthly series.
