Our story begins when the silver tongued demon Masodik tricks and kidnaps both Dawn and Vampirella, written and drawn by Dawn creator Joseph Michael Linsner! He tells them that they are the 2 most beautiful women in all of the worlds, these two 'Bad Girls'. Their demon host demands a cat fight to see who is best suited to his purposes, but the ladies suggest something more feminine -- a storytelling contest. Together they take us to the bloody shores of Draculon, to post-apocalyptic New York and to worlds beyond imagination. Only Ravana knows what rewards and punishment await the winner and the loser in this duel of horror hostesses.

    By nesting problems and puzzles in the layers of his writing, Linsner is creating a greater depth in his story, and inspiring the readers not only to keep up with the action/horror story, but to understand the subtext and symbolism as well.This is a thought-provoking story that works on multiple levels.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Sep 10, 2014

    Dawn/Vampirella #1 is something I didn't expect to enjoy but I did. I was instantly sucked into the narrative by the charm of the book as some winning personalities complimented a plot, that may have been slightly predictable, but managed to be entertaining. In other words this comic happens to come recommended. Read Full Review

    I've got far too many years distant since the last time I read a Dawn book but I've always had an affection for the character and what she brought to the table when she first came out with Linsners style. The pairing of the two leads is one that certainly falls under the "obvious" category and there looks to be a pretty big scale story going on when it comes to this particular demon and what he's capable of and what it is he wants. Putting these two women together provides for some solid strength and strength of character to work with and it'll be interesting to see if it can capitalize on it. This installment is all setup and basic introductions with a tease of what's to come. Linsner captures both of the characters looks and appeal well and delves into their character decently enough, but it's what comes next that will determine if they're going to be interesting to see going through the story as opposed to just being interesting to look at.

    As for me"Hell yeah"I liked it. But of course, I like the B movie thing and this reminds me of something that I would have watched at an old school drive in. It has that drive in classic feel to it. It is fun and frisky, and I am curious now to see the outcome. Let's see what you ladies have. And for you Joseph Michael Linsner, let's see what you have too. Bring it on, codpieces and all. Read Full Review

    I've read a lot of books like this one. I mean, Dawn has been around for a while and Vampirella has been around forever. But, Dynamite really picked the right guy to tell this story, and I'm hoping it runs on longer than Vampirella's v-neck. The marriage of these two characters is perfect and well overdue. If you need some hotness in this week's reads, jump on this title now before everyone else does. Happy reading! Read Full Review

    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Sep 10, 2014

    It's all a bit simplistic, and I'm sure the actual ending is going to be different from the McGuffin we're initially shown (the world of off-panel actions being one of infinite possibilities). If you're jonesing for a long-standing Dawn fix, then you'll want to pick this up. If you're more of a Vampirella fan, she's a bit off-character and shoehorned into the plot for obvious marketability. Read Full Review

    Geekality - Gregory Thompson Sep 9, 2014

    I recommend the Dawn/Vampirella crossover for fans of either character and the art of Joseph Michael Linsner. For some comic book lovers, youll find yourself forcing through the story at times. The cliffhanger at the end was a nice touch, but Im not sure how nice it will make you want to continue into issue two. Read Full Review

    Wow. I don't really know what to say about this comic " well, I do, but it's not nice. The cover page should give ample clues as to what you are about to read, but it gets worse. Read Full Review
