In the final issue of this ground-breaking mini-series, "The Vampire and the Vigilante", two of the Dynamite Universe's most dangerous female characters must put aside their differences in order to combat a common enemy determined to destroy them. While Jennifer Blood must figure out how to kill legions of the Prince's un-killable Shard Men, Vampirella throws down against fellow-bloodsucker Chastity to decide, once and for all, who is the greatest female vampire-turned-vampire hunter of all time!

    Though I went into this arc without knowing anything about Jennifer Blood, it was something that worked well even if it went into too much background exposition early on. That's part of the point of the spin off series so I can't begrudge it too much because it is trying to introduce readers to more of the characters in Dynamite's stable. I liked this issue overall for what it did since it was mostly action focused, had some decent banter along the way and paired our two leads together in a solid way. Acosta's artwork comes through well, even if the usual heavy hand of dark coloring is used throughout to obscure detail, and giving us a lot of time between Vampi and Chastity feels like a lot of payoff right there. It's a solid installment that brings things to a close while letting you know that it's all really just getting underway in the bigger picture. Read Full Review

    Admittedly, the ending wasn't very surprising except for Chastity's reveal. We know Vampirella and Jennifer Blood finally join up with the other awesome ladies of 'Swords of Sorrow' in the main book. It was just a matter of seeing how and not if they would come out ahead. Yet, it doesn't detract from the exciting action, humor and camraderie from these two very different but equally compelling characters. Read Full Review

    A fun series that is slightly darker in tone with its sister spin offs, lots of action and some light gore make it a good read to kill sometime with. Read Full Review

    Both Vampi and Jennifer have got some hard-core fans, mainly from the previous books. Normally I would say that would be a good thing, but this mini series hasn't done either character any justice. I have recently reviewed Vampirella's own book (go look) and its so much better than this, as is Jennifer Blood's book by Garth Ennis. If you are want to see both characters in a better light go check them out in the own habitat. Read Full Review
