Vampirella #31 - Frank Frazetta cover

Vampirella v1 #31 warren magazine cover art by Frank FrazettaVampirella v1 #31, 1974 - The savage yet sensuous Luana the Beast Girl is prominently featured on Frank Frazetta's last cover for the series. Exotic and beautiful, she's accompanied by a pair of jungle cats and a chimpanzee. Interestingly, the more typical Frazetta theme of a weapon-wielding man and timid female are relegated to the background. This painting was originally commissioned for an Italian film. The issue also contains a full color Richard Corben tale. This is number 5 of 5 Vampirella issues with Frazetta art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Frazetta or Vampirella issues.

This particular cover was actually a reuse of one of the two movie poster key art pieces Frazetta did for the movie Luana.
(A comic adaptation of the film is one of the stories in the issue)
