    There are a couple of things to love about this series and I don't mean Elvira's assets. The comedic timing coupled with Samu's amazing facial expressions brings the comic to life. You can hear Price and Peterson's voices coming out loud and clear in every panel and with a tonne of variant, exclusive and photo covers there's something for every fan. Read Full Review

    Storywise. This gets off to a brilliant start. The in-jokes are thick and fast and the initial meeting with Elvira and her horror hero was well executed. I can't wait to read the second issue. Read Full Review

    Comical Opinions - Gabriel Hernandez Aug 5, 2021

    ELVIRA MEETS VINCENT PRICE #1 embodies everything you love about Silver-Age Hollywood, B-movie horror. The art is great, the jokes are better, and I had a devil of a good time reading this comic. Read Full Review

    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Aug 3, 2021

    As he has done with his incomparable work on the various Bettie Page arcs, writer David Avallone has expertly captured the cadence and intonation of the real life characters he inserts into his stories, to the degree that one cannot help but hear the inimitible inflections of Vincent Price with every word balloon the character utters. Juan Samu's artwork captures facial expressions adeptly, although the characters frequently look a bit "Mad Magazine" cartoonish, particularly in contrast to the images of Vincent, but not enough to distract from the story. And while this first chapter is by-and-large an amusing and engaging (but nonetheless) setup for the action to come, this reader can't help but wonder why nobody has taken the initiative to license Vincent Price's image to be the host of his own comic book anthology of the macabre. It would seem to be, as they say, a 'no-brainer.' Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 4, 2021

    I never thought I'd get into Elvira comics a few years ago but, like the Bettie Page books that Dynamite puts out, I'm a huge cheerleader of them because they are absolutely fun and delightful. Avallone knows how to work this property in different ways and the addition of Price makes for a really delightful time with the dialogue, in-jokes, and obvious innuendo. Juan Samu's artwork is fantastic here in how they capture both our leads and present the world so that there's a good bit of comical to it but also a kind of sexiness that carries through. Combine that with some great settings and background pieces and it just comes together wonderfully. This is a somewhat standard but strong start to the new storyline that takes us further down Elvira's path, which she's happy to recount in brief along the way. Very recommended. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 4, 2021

    Juan Samu delivers some beautiful art throughout the issue. Not only are the likenesses of the characters well done, but there is a great energy to the imagery that comes through with each page and panel. Read Full Review
