    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Jul 5, 2022

    In a climate of Dark Crises, Flashpoint Beyonds, and Shadow Wars, which all claim to be the biggest events, and promise that the DC universe will never be the same, its refreshing to jump into a book like DC vs. Vampires. With issue 7, the book has proven that a simple story, amazing art, colors, and a fun, pulpy concept can mix and form a compelling read. For fans of DC characters or the fun sketches that grace Otto Schmidts social media, DC vs. Vampires is the book for you. Its nice to only have to worry about the continuity of six issues (or eight, depending on your tie-in opinions) instead of an entire decades worth. Read Full Review

    The tie-ins have been hit and miss, but the main series is still top-notch. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 6, 2022

    DC vs. Vampires #7 does an amazing job of launching the latter half of the event but at the same time making it feel like a starting point. For those awaiting the series' return, you'll be happy with the mix of action, drama, and so much more. For those that want to dive in, you can and you'll be sucked into the world. A fantastic start to the epic battle to come. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 5, 2022

    DC vs. Vampires #7 is another great chapter in a series that's more about seeing heroes die, become vampires, and interact in this alternate timeline. This issue has that in spades while building on how the heroes can turn the tide even after they seemingly lost everything. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jul 11, 2022

    I do like how sort of drained and tired Schmidt makes Supergirl look. But I do like how she immediately becomes a leader. And I like how people pause and listen when she arrives. She is a respected hero, even in this group. Meanwhile, the revolution has a captive. A vampire Harley Quin is being experimented on by Professor Pyg. Perhaps she is a key?I wasn't expecting much from this. But the art is dazzling and the dialogue snappy. But the best thing was the feeling of respect people seemed to give Kara.  I really liked that.So what do you think? And should I go out to get the first 6 issues? Read Full Review

    Hopefully at least one of these plans comes to fruition so the vampires have a legit battle on their hands instead of running up the score against a hapless opponent. This was an encouraging issue for a maxi-series thats desperately needed an infusion of suspense. Read Full Review

    With the series ratcheting up the stakes, this is definitely a comic that you can sink your teeth into when all is said and done. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Jr. Jul 5, 2022

    I binge read every issue of DC Vs. Vampires, and issue #7 radically changes the landscape of the series. The first six out of twelve issues may have set up these "dark days of future past, but the second half brings it to life. It is a beautifully designed book, despite the edginess of its apocalyptic makeovers. Coming from someone who thought I, Vampire was one of the most underrated books in the New 52, I think the vampires feel conveniently overpowered but underwritten. There are plenty of questionable choices that I'm still waiting to develop further before criticizing, but for now it is an easy recommendation. Read Full Review

    Yeah, I'm loving this series. I'm loving the suspense of genuinely not knowing how they're getting out of this (if they do). I love the little dramatic moments between heroes and villains (like Kara when she's told Superman is among the horde) plus I love that plot points character motivations aren't hammered into as yet make perfect sense, like Barbara wanting to go after Grayson for mostly personal reasons but disguising it as a pragmatic motive or Harley being experimented by human sueprvillains (and swearing revenge) instead of being captured by vamps.

    Plus the tone, it switches seamlessly from tense and horrific moments (like the ambush), to black comedy (Plastic Man is as hilarious as vampire as he was in life and seeing W more

    Now that is more like it!
    Strong character work, huge plot developments without feeling rushed or skipped over, instead every panel carries with it a strong sense of paranoiac urgency. It's great stuff.

    VAMPIRE world is scary as hell, how is anyone going to get out of this one?

    We go back to this macabre world and this chapter wastes no time in setting the new status quo, atmosphere, stakes (no pun intended) and objectives of our new main characters (who are immediately endearing).

    I love that Green Arrow priorizes saving people, Supergirl's mission is tied to her nature and family (I smell a confrontation down the line) and Barbara's is personal (even if she won't admit it to herself). The issue is smart in concentrating on a relatively small set of characters so as not to spread itself too thin. The vampire superheroes are delightful villains and I love everytime they appear on screen. The series overall has done a very good job keeping the tension of what's going to happen to who.

    Weak transition story, where Tynion and Rosenberg gleefully hang up Batman's body with a hole in his chest (only point of story). What's left ends up in the Bottle City of Kandor to hide and plot. Only interesting character is Doctor Fate who just gets a panel or two. Doctor Fate stands around and of course has the answer but does nothing in Tynion and Rosenberg's story. Obviously they don't know Doctor Fate. Supergirl comes on to whine. Batgirl comes on to vow revenge against Nightwing. Obviously some experiments being done on mass-murderer Harley Quinn somewhere now that she has Luthor's blood; couldn't happen to a more deserving character. Could have been done in a few panels, but you know DC Comics wants yoru $$$ since everything else i more
