After receiving a threatening invitation to a party at Slade's manor, Vampirella and her coven of friends are forced to walk into an obvious trap. Can they outwit Slade at her own game, or will things get even bloodier?
Eman Casallos continues his rich artistic arsenal by bringing us great imagery through shadows and contrast. Any artist that takes on the task of bringing Vampirella into the modern-day will have to undergo the unfortunate comparisons to Jose Gonzales. I think Casallos does a great job and brings the characters a modern-day sensibility. They feel like they belong in today's world with this creative team and yet fans of the original run (I never read any of the Harris issues so I have nothing to say about them) I believe will enjoy what's happening in this series.

This book is a cynical example of story compression, with set up following recap, affectively not giving the reader a lot of new story for their money. On top of that, whilst I appreciate that clothes don't make the woman, I don't mind admitting that I miss the old outfit. Read Full Review
Vampirella is moving things forward here bit by bit with what it does but I keep feeling like we needed more time establishing Vampi in this area and connecting with the landscape more before going with such a public spectacle. Leth's handle on Vampirella seems pretty good and I like the addition of Juliette to things, but I want more Tristan and Coleridge and a little more darkness to things. The public side of what's going on can be done in some interesting ways and we've seen many interpretations of this character over the years, but Slade just isn't providing a strong enough opponent for Vampirella at this point or for the readers to really find engaging.
