In a desperate attempt to fight Lady Umbra's growing control over her mind and body, Vampirella and her unlikely new ally, Lord Drago, take a jaunt to the Mediterranean. There, on the Greek island of Lamos, famous for its unspoiled beaches and friendly natives, they search for the most ancient species of vampire in the world: the dreaded lamia of legend. But can Vampirella locate and slay the seductive half-serpent before her heart falls into shadow?

    I can find very little wrong with Vampirella during this run so far. She is bringing it strong with the support of Collins and Berkenkotter providing the detail. This one might be the best one yet for the series. More to come soon. And I am excited about that. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Sep 4, 2014

    Vampirella #4 continues to trek a path that may not be what the average enthusiast expects but the creative team is successfully building something that's worth following. With each passing page this yarn showed a certain level of quality that allows praise as it easily comes highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Sep 8, 2014

    As before, Berkenkotter is the penciller with Dennis Crisostomo on inks, Jorge Sutil on colours and Rob Steen on letters with Terry Dodson turning out another beautiful cover. There are a few panels where Berkenkotter's characterwork suffers because of unlikely body proportions, but in the main, I loved his detailed pencils. And also the fact that he has put in some nice subtle touches such as the Mark of Lilith on Vampirella, which charts her progress in becoming a proper vessel for Umbra. And the colours and inks are both solid all the way through so no complaints there. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 3, 2014

    The Lamia creature is one that certainly works well, especially after the creature we had the last time, as it presents something different and a little more involved with what it does and its origins. The acquiring of the blood and its effects are important parts of the larger storyline that's going on and we get the expected advancement here that gets us to the next stage of what Drago is doing. But the real fun is in watching the kind of dynamic that's growing around these three as they jet about the world in search of these ancient creatures. Drago's one that is definitely not used to spending time with someone with a personality like Vampirella and she obviously gives as good as she takes. There's a lot to like with the pair, and her observations about Coleridge that speaks of something else, and it left me wanting more of this to grow in the coming issues. Read Full Review

    Needless Essentials Online - Stan Ford Sep 2, 2014

    If you do check it out, I recommend picking up the Jenny Frison cover and not the Terry Dodson cover featured above. I don't particularly care for Dodson's work. He seems to have stalled in his obvious influence to Adam Hughes early, pre-Photoshop style. Jenny Frison's cover is very iconic and moody, and doesn't accentuate Vampirella's sexuality like Dodson's does. Read Full Review
