    This was a really fun issue that managed to reference a great many of Kubrick's movies including 2001 A Space Odyssey, Eyes Wide Shut, A Clockwork Orange, and more. But most of the jokes and humor come from how many of Jack Nicholson's movies get referenced throughout the book. I particularly enjoyed how Avallone made use of the classic "You Need Me on that Wall speech from 'A Few Good Men', which is perhaps one of my favorite movies to come out of the 1990s.

    Califano beautifully captures the character of Elvira and her personality in the issue. The details in the panels are brilliantly done. I love the look and feel of this issue a lot. Read Full Review

    ELVIRA IN HORRORLAND #2 is a heck of a lot of fun, especially if youre a cinephile. The jokes and film references can be overwhelming in spots, but the jokes are witty, the art is delightful, and everything around the story centers on 4th-Wall-Breaking fun. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 29, 2022

    This series continues to delight in its execution of playing with familiar films and the director's behind them. It's upfront about what it wants to be but it delivers in spades with the wordplay and reworkings to make it all happen without there being any legal issues behind it. Which is what makes it so much fun because it's handling it all so masterfully while still making sure that Elvira is at the forefront and having a terrifying blast in the midst of it all. It's got a solid script with great lines and some fantastic artwork that knows how to adapt what's come before but giving it its own playful twist at times, especially in the character designs. The first two issues are fun and while there is a bigger story unfolding here, I could just go on with this style and approach for quite some time yet to come. Read Full Review

    To put it bluntly, it's a very weird issue that doesn't seem to conform to any real rules, but for movie buffs, it's a ton of fun even if it does feel a bit like a narrative disaster. The art is also really kind of fun, though just a little inconsistent. Read Full Review
