    The world of Vampirella is one that often mirrors our own. The occult exists on the outskirts of general knowledge, and the innocents she protects are unaware of her presence. However, for women there is still a more substantial threat: sexual harassment. Many of my female friends have told me horror stories about men--alleged men--pawing them and cat-calling, making lewd suggestions and exhibiting as much class as the average Blind Date contestant. I think I'll show these friends how Vee deals with such embarrassments to gender. Mr. Smith perceptively brings the war between the sexes to the pages of Vampirella and balances out the justice she metes. These louts do not deserve to die, nor should they be ignored. Vee deals with them in a characteristic, take no prisoners way that will leave a grin on your face. How ironic that the most scantily clad super-hero in comic books also happens to be the most liberated. Read Full Review
