    A good debut issue that has the heroine on the hunt for something. Worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Feb 3, 2015

    Although at times the steampunk elements are a little overdone, this is equally a time and place where Vampirella feels at home, maybe even more so than the modern day setting where she is presently based. The feel here is a Bram Stoker style of steampunk, lighter on the pseudo-science and heavier on the occult. It is a good fit, and the story benefits from it as does the main character. The end result is maybe not amazing, but it is a solid read with some fun moments and a solid story and concept to hold it together. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Feb 3, 2015

    Legenderry: Vampirella #1 delivers an intriguing premise, with some intense action. It also manages to build on Williamson's Legenderry brand perfectly, as though the plot could have fallen into any genre class, it certainly felt like the same world. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Aaron Halverson Feb 4, 2015

    I liked the story, I like the character, I liked the setting and the art is good too. It's solid but I don't know if I'd recommend it to non-Vampirella fans. Or even non-Steampunk fans. If you like Vampirella you'll find enough here to keep your interest. If you like Steampunk you might find enough here to get you past the Vampirella aspect. If you are neither then I don't really know what's here for you. There's not a whole lot of groundbreaking. There's so little groundbreaking, in fact, that it has been classified as none. There is none groundbreaking in this" as decreed" by the US Groundbreaking Federation. So it won't blow you mind unless you're already on the hook for a different reason. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 4, 2015

    I have no real clue what the Legenderry material is all about, but I'd for some reason figured that a new miniseries set in the world might provide a little context to introduce new readers to it, which would them potentially draw them in to read the other materials as well. While I like the designs here and the costuming as the steampunk world has some really creative aspects to it, the story is a muddled mess that doesn't provide any context or really introduce us to anything. It's the kind of book that expects and demands that you know what's going on and just run right through it rather than being introduced to this particular world. I'd hoped, as a Vampirella fan, to get a look at her in a different setting, but it needed more for me to be able to make heads or tales of it. As it stands, it doesn't really endear me to trying anything further at all in the Legenderry world with how it plays out here. Read Full Review

    Project-Nerd - Matt Carter Feb 4, 2015

    Placing legacy characters like Vampirella (who debuted in 1969 for Warren Publishing) in an unfamiliar era or setting in order to revitalize their image and popularity level is nothing new. When it works, the result is a fresh and exciting take on an aging character that can really make for some good comics. When it doesn't, the result is a trite time-waster, and there's already plenty of that on the shelves. Legenderry: Vampirella is an unfortunate example of the latter rather than the former.
