After being forced to entertain the demon Masodik with wild stories under the threat of death, Vampirella has had more than she can stand.  She begins to suspect that her fellow captive Dawn might know more than she is saying.  Is Dawn hiding some ace up her sleeve, or is she in league with Masodik?  Violence erupts between the two.  The demon is thrilled by this, thinking he is getting a front row seat to the fight of the century.  Blood flies and roses shatter as Dawn and Vampirella come face to face and confront their differences.

    I really wanted to like this series more than I did and I'm not sure if I'm disappointed in it or myself. I grew up adoring Linsner's artwork yet what I see here feels like the style hasn't evolved or grown over the years and is what it was when I first discovered it some twenty-odd years ago. That's not necessarily bad, but I had hoped for something a little more. The series itself is one that I liked but it was difficult if only because there were several Vampirella miniseries and specials running that largely did the same kind of alternate story telling. Dawn provides the hook but even here she comes across as a weak player. In the end the book just feels like it ran an issue too long and didn't have enough to really say to make it compelling. I mostly enjoyed the individual tales but I kept looking for larger meaning where there was none in the end. So it's all a bit hollow here after all the time and waiting involved and invested.
