Vampirella assumes the role and obligations of the Drago, joining the Kabala clandestine organization of supernatural creatures. When a strange, rabies-like plague spreads through the slums of Sao Paolo like wildfire, infecting victims with homicidal fury, the Kabal calls upon Vampirella to capture the disease's murderous creator -- one of The Accursed, a human condemned to eternal life for his sins: the fabled Dr. Faustus.

    In this way, VAMPIRELLA is very much like all of us, and that is why 40 years after her creation, VAMPIRELLA is still a very popular title. She may be an alien or a vampire but in many ways she is truly human. Read Full Review

    This issue is a pretty good jumping on point, which Dynamite points out on the absolutely gorgeous cover we get here from Mike Mayhew. After all that has come before, Vampirella steps into a larger world, one that has a lot of background material to catch up on but which helps to really cement the organization and what it's doing. Combining that with an outbreak caused by Faustus keeps it moving well amid all the dialogue and exposition. Read Full Review

    In the end, a fairly intricate story is introduced, and Vampirella joins the Kabal and is off to solve her first case. That the issue ends in somewhat the same way as how it started is a good touch, as it makes the story feel both ongoing and circular. This is a far more serious take on the character than any that I have seen. Numerous reboots have been attempted on Vampirella, but it seems that they invariably end up being taken not seriously enough, paying too much homage to her roots as a cult status sex symbol. If the character is going to survive long term with any publisher, then an approach similar to the one here is needed, where Vampirella is a hero first and a sex symbol second. Read Full Review
