    This second issue of Elvira in Monsterland delivers the laughs and whacky plot twists that we have all come to love and know from David Avallone. I really enjoyed some of the meta moments where we saw the movie characters break characters to talk with Elvira. The fun of those kinds of moments never gets old. I mean Karloff in full monster makeup enjoying a cup of Earl Grey Tea just feels so right. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 28, 2023

    Elvira has appeared in A LOT of comics over the course of the past couple of decades. Some artists get her poise and personality. Some dont. The creative team of Avallone, Baal, and Pereyra might be some of the better people to work with the character over the years. The second issue of the current series is silly and weird, but its also perfectly lined up with the love of cinema thats made the character such an enduring pop cultural icon. The next issue will make for an interesting contrast. Elvira seems to have popped up inside An American Werewolf in London (1981). Early 1980s horror? That should be fun... Read Full Review
