    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jun 5, 2014

    Vampirella #1 is a return to form with just enough of a change to sell this character to both seasoned and new audience members. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    If the second and then the third issues stay like this, then I'm sure that this series is going to be a long one! Read Full Review

    Vampirella #1 is highly recommended to horror fans and readers looking for a new, great female character to get into. Vampirella has been around a long time but that doesn't stop this from being an easy to follow relaunch. It's an exciting new era for Vampirella with a great team leading the way. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 4, 2014

    I've always wanted to be into Vampirella more than I've been able to. There's a great kind of beauty to it with the way the character is designed, the settings she generally thrives in and the overall nature of the material. But the stories I end up trying usually come across as not quite as deep and rich as they should be in my mind, making me wish she was more of a novel character rather than comics. With Nancy A. Collins at the helm, we get the start of something that could be fun and interesting with the right kind of hooks, but it's still missing a certain something to really draw me, a long time comics reader, into the character. And it's even harder I suspect for a new reader. But there are some great bits to the first issue here that has me curious to see where it's going to go as the character feels like with a few issues under the belt, she'll be in good hands with Collins and Berkenkotter.

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Jun 5, 2014

    This issue strikes a very dark and supernatural tone that horror fans should feel very comfortable with. Longtime readers should appreciate the story found here though readers giving this #1 a chance won't find much in the way of explaining who Vampirella is or why she fights the good fight.

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Jun 5, 2014

    While the crux of the issue has already been spoiled by the advance solicitation promoting the book, Vampirella is off to a big new start with this relaunch.  She's out on her own, working against a group of evil cultists and possibly the church itself to get out with her life.  Vampirella belongs at the forefront of horror comics, and Nancy A. Collins could be the one to take her there. Read Full Review

    It's a shame, as Vampi is a comic I want to enjoy, but this is just average. Here's hoping it picks up. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Jun 9, 2014

    In the end, there just isn't anything new in "Vampirella" #1. The plot is recycled, even if Collins tries her best to give it a slightly new spin, and Vampirella is so devoid of any specific personality or skills that -- despite her eye catching looks -- she could be subbed out with any noir detective, horror hero or dark superhero.

    Comics Bulletin - Lisa Wu Jun 10, 2014

    At least, some of the panels will bring loyal Vampirella fans to hold up the issue to their faces for a look-see. Who doesn't like to see a sexy vampire left in bondage and branded? This only leads one to wonder which sexual fetish Collins will throw in next. Collins and Berkenkotter can forgo the prescribed self-flagellation if their intent was to be horrifically campy. Until Vampirella returns as the bad-ass we all want to see, this vampire vixen should be left alone with Sookie at Merllotte's with a bottle of True Blood. Read Full Review

    Great artwork and writing. Started out a bit slow with a lot of dialogue but pulled together for a great first issue. Will be interesting to see where it goes from here!
