A team-up set up by SWORDS OF SORROW's Gail Simone, featuring the writer that she hand-picked: Nancy A. Collins! Now that the threat of the Pacifica Slasher/Anaheim Ripper has been handled, Vampirella must figure out how to survive in a world without monsters-including where to find her next meal. Meanwhile, Jennifer Blood turns her attention to Los Muertos, a deadly narco gang with a fondness for turning the faces of those who cross them into sporting goods. However, her plans for the gang's leaders are derailed by yet another Jennifer Blood copycat-one who bears a disturbing resemblance to a certain voluptuous vampire.

    This makes me want to read Jennifer Blood's earlier stories. Action, suspense, and a mystery create a dynamic read from Dynamite Comics. Read Full Review

    So far, Swords of Sorrow: Vampirella and Jennifer Blood is my favorite of the tie-in series, as it is better than what many would expect from this event. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 10, 2015

    Though not exactly lighting up the world, the second installment of this pairing is a fun little romp into the seedier side of things. These characters aren't the heroes of the light in a way, operating out front and in a public way, so we get a lot of alone time with each of them as they deal with their respective problems. We do touch a bit on the bigger picture with the swords from time to time, first with Vampirella's mini dream sequence and also with Jennifer's realizing that how she acquired her own sword would make her sound crazy, but right now it's more about the two women working the world and doing what they need to in order to survive. Vampirella's story clicks for me better as I'm more familiar with her and how she operates, but I also like the clear simplicity of Jennifer's actions and the way she operates. It's a solid installment that has me curious to see if there's an expected twist next issue. Read Full Review

    Buccaneer Book Reviews - Cap'n Aldous B. Adder Dec 31, 1969

    The ambitiousness of the series alone is enough to recommend checking out whichever title catches your fancy. That said, this is a mostly well-crafted and definitely well drawn and coloured comic. The first issue was great at cramming in things and this one at going for more open style and together they have been good fun to read " so if you haven't read it at all, definitely check it out. You might find yourself reading the rest of the Swords Of Sorrows before you know it! Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes Jun 9, 2015

    This issue feels like a step backward for the mini series and builds on the fears that I had for the whole Swords of Sorrow crossover, that being there may not have been enough story to fill the various tie-ins. This is a shame as the main story is going about it's business in a strong fashion. Read Full Review
