The Crimson Chronicles, that foul bible of blood, foretells the coming of Chaos, the Destroyer and his servants on earth. Since her earliest days, Vampirella has stood between that vicious cult and their Mad God's plans. But when an ancient prophecy of doom is uncovered and a new push to resurrect the foulest demons from the pit is revealed, it's clear Vampirella won't be able to take them on alone. Enter THE SCARLET LEGION, assembled to keep the dark things at bay and protect this world from the evils which lie beyond. The only question is, will they see Vampirella as friend... or foe?

    Malaga gives Vampirella realistic elegance and beefs her up to lend verisimilitude to her battle prowess. No wispy waisted waif is she. Vampirella is a fully developed woman who appears to have worked out at the gym. Technically this choice isn't necessary since Vampirella possesses preternatural strength, but I think the more full-blooded model sells Vampirella better. Read Full Review

    Maybe this comic wasn't meant for me, and rather a diehard Vampirella fan. But I'd like to think that every comic is someone's first, and that should be doubly true if it's issue one. But, that is not this case for Vampirella and the Scarlet Legion #1, which receives 2.5 Stars, out of 5. Read Full Review

    "Vampirella and the Scarlet Legion" is an interesting comic in parts, but doesn't feel like anything astoundingly creative. It has the air of average about it when anyone doing a Vampirella tale either needs to make it insane and metal and awesome, or they need to pack up and go home. Dynamite loves to get a character and then flood the market with content for that character, but they need to enforce quality control instead. Not that this comic is bad in any way, it's not terrible, but it's not giving much of a reason to be noticed. Read Full Review
