Get ready to party - Vampi style! With one hundred issues stacked high since Dynamite's launch of Vampirella in 2010, it's time for a giant-sized spectacular. To commemorate the occasion, we welcome the best Vampirella writers - past, present, and even future - to contribute short stories, guaranteed to send chills up your spine and quicken your pulse.  Featuring Nancy A. Collins (who launched the current ongoing series with her bold new take), Eric Trautmann (who kicked off the Dynamite era), Brandon Jerwa (who expanded the mythology in over 20 issues), Mark Rahner (who spoofed pop horror culture with several one-shot specials), and Tim Seeley (the architect of Chaos who debuts his first-ever Vampi work here)!

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jan 21, 2015

    We've got a lot of different Vampirella books out in the last few months and it does feel like a bit much, but they all work towards their own goals. This special is a good one to have as it celebrates the general volume of material produced since 2010 and it brings in some of those that helped usher it along, those who are working on it now and some first timers as well to provide their own stamp on the property. Vampirella is an odd property in general, especially since it holds onto its origins in different ways to this day, but in the end what we get is a really fun anthology book by some solid creative teams that don't duplicate their efforts at all and instead provide a diverse look at a very fun character.

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Jan 18, 2015

    Although this comic is celebrating 100 issues of Vampirella, it's pretty new-reader friendly. Anyone can jump in and get a good introduction to the character and what she's about. She's a smart, sassy vampire hunting vampire that may be from another planet. What more do you really need? Read Full Review

    If you like horror, comics, good stories, amazing art, or any combination of the four, pick up Vampirella #100 and, if you can, try to read it at night (give yourself ample light so you don’t strain your eyes). I’ve come to find that horror comics are the most fun when the ghosts and ghoulies can actually get you. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - Scott Cosby Apr 9, 2015

    Overall, Vampirella #100 is a diverse collection of five stories, each offering a distinct take on the character, but nothing really sets this apart as celebratory despite its 48 page length. The writing and artwork are top-notch and there are four vivid covers available for this issue. One positive aspect concerning this issue, its a good jumping on point for new readers of Vampirella!

    Nerds On The Rocks - Dan Crotty Jan 22, 2015

    It's a fun centennial celebration for our blood sucking heroine that Vampi-virgins may want to check out and die-hard fans won't want to miss. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jan 15, 2015

    Overall, "Vampirella" #100 is a diverse collection of stories, each offering a distinct take on Vampirella, but nothing really sets this apart as celebratory or distinguishable despite its extra length. There's some good stuff and some mediocre stuff, the former thankfully outweighing the latter, but nothing in this comic is as spectacular as a one-hundredth issue of a comic book icon deserves. "Vampirella" #100 is a nice slideshow, but readers should expect nothing but a dynamic documentary. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori-Griffith Jan 21, 2015

    The reality is, theres a million ways to make a powerful female character sexy, or even sexual, without making her into an object, but Im not sure the bulk of these creators are getting that. Vampirella grew out of an era of storytelling that embraced female sexuality, often in really interesting powerful ways. One only has to look to Barbarella or Rocky Horror Picture Show to imagine how much stronger a character she could be if given a chance. And THAT would be something to celebrate. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Jan 22, 2015

    Once all is said and done, I think that Vampirella #100 captures the many faces that lurk above the traditional "in your face" look of our lady. She has a rich history that is portrayed decently enough. Though not all of the stories are exactly great, there is enough here to allow entertainment for the reader and it is a nice piece for the die-hard fans of the character as well as new readers who might be looking to see what this dark-haired lady with the skimpy costume is all about.
