In "The Dragon Chariot", the third chapter in "The Accursed" story arc, fresh outbreak of the dreaded 'black rabies'-a plague that turns those who suffer from it into raving homicidal maniacs-sends Vampirella and The Kabal's top field agent, the werewolf Tristan to Athens, Greece, in search of the second Accursed involved in Dr. Faustus' plan to end the world. The evil alchemist's co-conspirator is none other than the legendary sorceress Medea, scorned wife of the hero Jason and granddaughter of the sun-god Helios, who was cursed with immortality by Zeus for murdering her own children. Can Vampirella and her new allies stop Medea before she spreads the contagion throughout the world and uncover the identity of the mysterious source of the cursed blood used to create the murder plague?

    Vampirella #9 is an impressive entry that cuts right to the meat of its arc without sacrificing the nuances of story. To put it simply: this comes highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Vampirella continues to be a pretty fun book overall with what it does, but I keep finding my main complaining coming back to the coloring style of it as it's so dark that, at least through digital versions, it's getting harder and harder to make out certain scenes. The story itself works well and this installment moves things forward well in exploring the outbreaks and those behind it. Vampirella isn't fully in control here with what she's doing as she's mostly being whisked from sequence to sequence, much as Drago did, but we continue to get a solid education about the world she lives in each time and it's establishing a very solid mythology – at least for those opponents that manage to survive their encounter with her.

    In the end it is not even possible to say that this series is already heading in the right direction, as any time that this happens the series has taken a nose dive ion terms of its quality, but at the very least, the creative team managed to put together a fairly entertaining issue this time. It is still an issue built around some fun action scenes based on supernatural violence as opposed to a strong overall story, but if the creative team is able to maintain this level at least the series will be interesting and exciting, if not very deep.

    Even so, I do recommend this title as I have been impressed overall with it from top to bottom. The writing has been sound, the art superb, and the story itself one that is entertaining and educational at the same time. It is well worth the time and investment. Read Full Review
