A team-up set up by SWORDS OF SORROW's Gail Simone, featuring the writer that she hand-picked: Nancy A. Collins! Vampirella travels to Southern California to hunt down a supernatural serial killer known as the Pacifica Slasher, only to find herself transported to an alternate reality where there's no such things as vampires, demons, and magic. But, as the most dangerous woman in the world, vigilante Jennifer Blood knows, that doesn't mean monsters don't exist. Does the weirdly shaped sword presented to her by the mysterious being called The Courier hold the key to returning Vampirella to her own universe? Or will she be forced to live and die in L.A.?

    This issue is light on current story and heavy on backstory, but that is okay, especially if it comes back around as this four-issue mini-series continues. Read Full Review

    Passable but nothing exceptional. I suppose that phrase can be said for this entire mini-series tie-in comic so far.If you are curious about the characters and reading the main storyline this might be worth a quick look. Howeverif you are expecting amazing artwork or a story that will have any lasting impact beyond the pages I'd skip this issue. You might be better served sticking with the main storyline and checking these ladies in their own individual series. I want to read something more than a recap back story of the characters! I'll probably give this tie-in at least a second look to see what happens next but if the pace isn't picked up dramatically I'm done reading anySwords of Sorrowtie-in stories. Read Full Review

    “Swords of Sorrow: Vampirella and Jennifer Blood” #1 is a decent start that's enjoyable with some flaws. There's quite a bit of potential here with Collins writing the series and once the story really gets rolling, I think this will shape up into something very memorable. Read Full Review

    With the exception of the visuals, this is a good book. Sadly, art is key to a comic, and this book will flounder unless the illustrations improve. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes May 19, 2015

    As a tie-in the book does it's job, setting the scene for the two heroines to meet whilst also alluding to the big bad of the main title. I have to say, there appears to be a glitch in the book which annoyed me, but doesn't distract from the story. Let me know if you spot it. I think there is enough about the book to grab the attention of fans of both characters and at only four issues, isn't a major hit on the wallet. That said, this is only one of the multitudes of titles set to tie into the main story, so be prepared. Read Full Review
