Vampirella is still trapped in a mysterious dimension filled with twisted versions of classic children's stories. According to an unseen entity called The Storyteller, Vampirella's only hope of returning to her own world is if she lives out each chapter in the book of "Feary Tales" until she reaches the end. Vampirella finds herself cast as "Snow White" in a macabre re-imagining of the classic Betty Boop cartoon, written by Eisner & Jack Kirby award-winner Stephen R. Bissette (Saga of the Swamp Thing, Tyrant, Taboo) and Denis St. John (Monster Pie, Monsters & Girls: Amelia). Then Gail Simone (Red Sonja, Women of Dynamite, Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Secret Six) provides a fresh take on an old fishwife's tale when she sends Vampirella to a "Thirsty, Thirsty Town" in the Old West to find out whether or not Sailor Jim and his mermaid bride, Nala, really are living 'happily ever after'.

    The second round of fairy tales for Vampirella to be involved in works well as they're both quite different and the larger structure with the Storyteller lightly offers a clue or two about what's going on. The initial story is a fun one as we get a Snow White adaptation that puts Lilith in a great spot to watch and just a lot of fun as mother and daughter go at it in the only way they seem to know. The second story puts Vampirella in a very different situation than normal and works the mystery in a simple way, but does it in a very engaging manner because of the location, the scripting and the artwork itself. It builds itself into a really great horror piece as it reveals each of the small moments, all while giving us our title character in a situation that's fresh and new for her, or at least for me. Enough so that I could stand a miniseries of her doing things in this form. Read Full Review

    I understand that Dynamite wanted to have something light hearted and fun to throw into the revamp of Vampirella, but Feary Tales just isn't the one. I would recommend the other Vampirella release this week, Dawn/Vampirella #2, way over this one. Unlike this one, that particular title captures a fresh and fun feel and delivers much morethan these little perversions. Do yourself a big favor and steer clear of Feary Tales. Give Joseph Micheal Linsner's take on the vampire queen instead. Read Full Review
