In the 1980's, after a career-ending injury shatters her (and, really, her mother's) Olympic dreams, 17 year-old Chastity Marks finds an escape in a popular series of vampire novels... but little does she know that the novels conceal a secret underworld of blood, agony, and death - a world that she will be dragged into kicking and screaming. The classic Chaos! Character returns - reimagined, rebooted, and ready for blood! Join fan-favorite scribe MARC ANDREYKO (Batwoman, Torso, Manhunter) and artist Dave Acosta for the blood-curdling adventures of a girl who is most definitely NOT your father's vampire!

    This is the origin of a quickly rising character. You better strap yourselves in, it's going to be a bumpy read. Ferocious fun. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jul 9, 2014

    Chastity #1 is another winning release for this Chaos! relaunch. Whether you're picking up the main title or not the quality contained within this one deserves a spot on your pull-list. Let it be known: this earns its accolades and comes highly recommended. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jul 8, 2014

    Chastity is a book that will take people by surprise, although it really shouldnt. Marc Andreyko did a very good job Manhunter, which was underrated as well. Dave Acosta and Tiago Ribeiro make the story better with their contributions in art and color. This could be an explosive new series for Dynamite, and it has great ingredients to succeed.

    The writing is fantastic. Marc Andreyko writes a pretty convincing 17 year old female. The art by Dave Acosta is detailed, gory, and nightmarish when it needs to be. This is a fantastic horror comic to add to your pile! Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Steven Merced Jul 9, 2014

    For the most part Chastity was a good beginning with a few rough edges but an interesting story none the less. Bringing a character in the same vain as Buffy to a new generation of young female readers is a good approach. But don't let the cover art or the comparisons to Buffy fool you, this is not a bubble gum look into the world of vampires. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - J. Reifler Jul 9, 2014

    If you enjoy a femme fatale fighting vampires with lots of gruesome horror then you'll enjoy Chastisty #1. It promises to be a mature read so be warned. If you like your comics a bit more tame then you might want to stick to Buffy;otherwiseget ready for a trip into the terrifying world of fearless vampire killers. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Jul 6, 2014

    My problem with this comic is the art by Dave Acosta. Its not bad, but its not competent. Chastity is not the most popular comic book character. Chaos Comics is a small publisher Chastity. The Acosta needs an inker to equalize his work. I grow tired of comic book publishers who cut corners by taking unpolished pencils straight to colouring. Inking improves comic book art.

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Jul 8, 2014

    I suppose I haven't really reached much of a conclusion to this review so I'll try and sum up. At the end of the day I found Chastity #1 more fascinating than anything else, I don't actively dislike it or even find it that unpalatable just kind of weird and vaguely interesting. Sad to say probably the most intriguing thing about it was the in story vampire adventure romance series Blood Rose which sounds (and looks) way more interesting and original. Maybe it's that Chastity is just an idea long past its sell buy date as we've had so much with vampires in the 83 years sense Lugosi put on the cape (92 sense Nosferatu) that all the angles have been explored, or at the very least all the vampire slayer angles. If there is still a vampiric new frontier it really isn't here and unless you're really curious or a big fan of Chastity the character I'd give this comic a miss. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Ross Sweeney Jul 8, 2014

    Overall, its a solid reboot of a relatively obscure character, and between this, and the newly released Chaos! #1, it looks like theyre going to be going in some fairly interesting directions. Not necessarily one to rush out and buy now, now, now, but certainly worth a look, and one to keep an eye on going forward. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Eva Ceja Jul 15, 2014

    My thoughts on the reboot? I think is sucked, literally. The original Chastity had depth and courage, one your Priestess can relate to " not only because I actually went to RADA " since I was that girl who ran away from home when I was 17 and obsessed with Anne Rice. It's a shame that Andreyko changed the story to be more "fitting for our tweenie vampire age", yet still in no way is this comic comparable to the beauty of Anne Rice's Interview with a Vampire series. Kudos to Dave Acosta (The Fallen) for the beautiful visuals, but I just can't get past Chastity's otherwise lack of"bite. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jul 11, 2014

    I was looking forward to this one because I didn't really like the story for 90s Chastity. Now I think I'd rather just have that version back because this new one is dreadful. I shouldn't be happy that her and her entire family is dead, but I am. I am. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Jul 11, 2014

    Chastity is getting off to a slow start.  I would have preferred more time spent on the vampire element and less on the boring details of her family life.  Hopefully with that out of the way, the comic can continue on with the girl's new status quo now that she knows vampires are real and are very much interested in the blood coursing through her veins.

    I was pleasantly surprised with this issue! Don't let the chaos of Chaos! prevent you from picking this up. This story really picks up in issue #2 -- great job, Marc!
