For example, for the #1 in Brazil and Argentina, you can see they added a bra to cover Vampirella’s breasts so it wouldn’t be so revealing. USA Brazil Argentina Another modification can be observed here, on the original # the girl on cover didn’t wear the Vampirella costume, but on the copy from Spain, it’s there. Foreign publishers tended to alter artwork for their own reasons. Whether it be for censorship, like the example above, or editorial reasons like in Spain to the right.
