VAMPIRELLA SPECIAL - 1977
There were two versions of this Special, a standard
"soft cover" version (what we would call today a "Trade
Paper Back") which retailed at £4.95, and a limited
edition Deluxe Hard Cover which retailed at $12.50.
Only 500 of the limited edition were ever produced and each issue was numbered and signed by José Gonzalez on the inside
of the front cover (there is a scan of my copy's signature below). A particularly rare and collectable item, the signed Hard Cover
is one the most valuable and expensive Vampirella items to buy - especially if it still has the original dust cover.
Cover: José Gonzalez
