Fearful that her monstrous nature is taking control, Vampirella takes solace in some extreme violence, and conversation, all topped off with a nice glass of Merlot, in a Boston tavern overrun by the demonic in the first part of this six issue story.  Living in a world of growing supernatural threats, Vampirella never knows what she will be facing from one moment to the next, but what she finds waiting for her in her Boston Brownstone when she returns from a night of hunting is the most unexpected of all.  Angels of Heaven sent by God . . . and they want Vampirella to work for them.

    The last time I read a new Vampirella book it was a black and white magazine in the 1980′s. I picked up this book because I made a New Year's resolution I'd try one new book every week. Who knew I'd hit gold coming out of the gate? This is a story of extreme evil and good with poor little Vampirella in the middle. The art and the coloring are really good, too! I came into this book knowing only who this character was and I left it knowing I want to read more! Thank you, Dyanmite, for starting a new reader right in a new year! Read Full Review

    The art from Johnny Desjardins is fairly typical of what Dynamite puts out. There’s nothing inherently wrong with the art - it just doesn’t pop off the page. Desjardins does have a great way with gore, and he seems to really shine when drawing decaying demons. The rest of the art is fine, as it does the job of telling the story, but with something this interesting I expect the art to rival the story. Read Full Review

    The first issue of "Vampirella Strikes" is the shift in direction that "Vampirella" has desperately needed for some time. Although the first issue was mainly an introduction to the characters and major plot points, "Vampirella Strikes" already has the potential to be one of the best storylines that this character has seen in years.

    I really hope the book gets better honestly I do. I have been a huge Vampirella fan for years but what we get here is an entirely uninspired first outing. At least give us back Vampirellas trademark skimpy outfit. That may make it easier to tolerate the narrative they have packaged. Vampirella books have never been the most innovative or interesting but they were solid stories. They combined action, horror and eye candy in a winning formula. Here all we get are played out tropes and story that feels like its the pilot of the CWs next young adult supernatural/action drama. Read Full Review
