    DRACULINA #1 picks up where the Vampirella run and Secret Six left off by putting Draculina on a personal mission to free herself from her shared prison. The art is fantastic, and Priests running admirably recaps Draculinas bizarre status quo heading into a clean and clear story. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Feb 9, 2022

    Its obvious shes the villain of the series, and Katie and Imogen are the heroes.And theres the problem, because other than Marvels Darth Vader comic, or maybe The Joker comic from DC, I cant think of other any book starring a villain thats had a long run.   Villains just dont make good headliners, because if they win, the storys over, and if they keep failing, people lose interest.  Christopher Priest is a great writer, so if anyone can make this book a success its him, but Draculina was the least interesting character in this issue.  I hope he adds more layers to her in the issues to come.

    Geek'd Out - Cameron Kieffer Feb 9, 2022

    While this book seems dependent on familiarity with the writers earlier works in the Vampi-verse, he provides just enough clues and exposition to help new readers kind of figure out whats happening. Fans of Priests signature style–starting off each scene with a new title card–will be glad to know he uses it here, although it doesnt serve much purpose and is frankly more of an annoyance than anything. The dialogue and pacing of the story are handled much better than the style aspects, although the dark humor is sparse enough to seem almost out-of-place with the otherwise serious tone.
