Best-Selling author Nancy Collins continues her epic run on Vampirella!

After escaping the Witches Hammer--the Vatican's elite monster-killing squad, lead by Father Nicodemus--Vampirella's new-found ally, the Nosferatu known as Drago, reveals that the only way to lift the curse placed on her by Ethan Shroud that is slowly making her a living vessel for Umbra, Our Lady of Shadows and Bride of the Apocalypse, is for her to drink the blood of certain rare species of vampire. The first stop on their monster world tour is Thailand, where Vampirella must hunt down and kill a horrific creature known as the Krasue--which appears only at night as the head of a beautiful woman--attached to nothing but a heart, a pair of lungs and a mass of entrails!

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Aug 6, 2014

    Dynamite continues to "blow up" their revamp titles with a strong commitment to writers who can capture the essence of previously single dimensional characters and take them to another level. With Vampirella, Nancy A. Collins adds this substance to a character who is more known for her scantily clad wardrobe instead of her ability. I think when things are finally said and done here, that Vampirella will be seen in a wholly different and more respectable light, fighting red one piece or not. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Aug 6, 2014

    Vampirella #3 is exactly the type of comic book I love to review for Unleash The Fanboy. It's smart, to the point and offers just enough darkness to make the threat against our primary considerable. In short: this is one outing that absolutely deserves your attention as it comes highly recommended. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 6, 2014

    Vampirella continues to find its way and seeing our lead character working with Drago is interesting, but I can't quite put my finger on why he feels off. Partially it's likely because he doesn't fit in the classic mold, but there are so many variations that something like this doesn't really bother me. There's an ease in which Vampirella gets into all of this and it's a little unsettling, but it fits with what she's been through and experiencing, which is made all the more interesting by the sweet words that are filling her head. The Krasue storyline is a throwaway one for the most part, but it's executed decently and serves the end goal of being a side quest towards the larger story, so it does what it needs to and gets out of the way. In the end, it just feels like I need to see more of Drago in order to really understand him and what's going on to be comfortable with the storyline. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - Scott Cosby Sep 26, 2014

    This new volume of Vampirella contains vivid detailed artwork by Patrick Berkenkotter. The colors by Jorge Sutil exude the ferocity due a classic dark heroine. The design of the Krause makes this issue memorable, and the use of shadows and colors gives this issue a definite horror-like tone to it. The action depicted is hard-hitting and visually vivid as well! The available covers for this issue are amazing visually for the iconic, scarlet-clad heroine. There are definitely great cover artists on this creative team. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Aug 5, 2014

    Vampirella #3 is a setup from the previous two issues, upping the horror tone and excitement with the story while also promising a lot of potential with future issues given what we have seen here. There are problems here though, like with the previous issues, but there are improvements as well. I'll keep my eye on this title as it continues on into the future. Read Full Review
