I read Camilla in high school when I was obsessed with the genre. Unfortunately for Camilla, the world wasn’t ready for sexploitation and so many think of comic book heroine Vampirella as the first female vampire (making the common mistake of confusing vamps with vampires), especially since the film industry busted out buxomy female vampires (often with bosoms exposed) in the years that followed.
