In "The Silver Tongue & The Golden Rose," Vampirella and Dawn - captured by the nefarious demon Masodik - must spin one beguiling tale after another in order to stay alive. Dawn blurs the lines of myth and fantasy by telling the tale of a ruined city plagued by a silver-tongued Gorgon who guards a golden rose. After their father is viciously killed by the Gorgon, two sisters set out to slay it and discover its enchanted secret.

    While I'm definitely a fan of both characters, and of the man behind this production, the title is one that just feels a little uncertain at this point. There have been a lot of alternate Vampirella stories in the last year or so through a number of forms and I'm not sure the audience really needed another one, which is what this series is slowly shaping up to be unless things change in the next issue or two. The tale we get here that puts the leading ladies as sisters in competition for power has its moments and I liked what I saw of the post-apocalyptic world as it had a very 80's feeling to it. But it works in a rather simple way to tell its tale and it doesn't really engage you in a strong way because you know it's a time-buying story, even if a story from an alternate world that may exist in a sense.

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Nov 22, 2014

    Dynamite released two Vampirella titles during this week. This one and one called Feary Tales. After reading both, I have to say that Dawn/Vampirella succeeds everywhere that Feary Tales fails in trying to do. Where Feary Tales tries to be fun and entertaining, it tanks. Dawn/Vampirella on the other hand, lays it on perfectly making for a great and interesting read that will keep your attention and might actually entertain you as well. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Nov 20, 2014

    Dawn/Vampirella #2 may not re-write the rules of the crossover, but it maintains the integrity of both franchises while still managing to be entertaining. And because of that this comic proves itself and comes recommended. Read Full Review
