    The narrative fully embraces (pun intended) the concept that Elvira is far more than just a goth version of the male gaze, but a sex-positive figure who refuses to be just an object and happens to have an interest in the macabre. Read Full Review

    I'm really looking forward to seeing what Avallone and Acosta come up with for the next issue. Hopefully Elvira will meet someone that actually knows a thing or two about how to fight vampires. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 12, 2018

    The second issue of the series sadly took a bit longer to get here than I would have liked but the property is one where they can mostly manage it in standalone issue form with connective tissue bringing it across. This one feels a bit more decompressed in a way since it's not doing the heavy lifting of the setup that the first one did so everything is spread out a bit more than before and it's a mild readjustment to get used to that. David Avallone continues to have a blast here bring Elvira to life as he captures her personality so well while Dave Acosta just breathes so much life into every panel that it's a delight to read several times by just looking at all the little details of each page. Very recommended. Read Full Review

    Dave Acosta's art is amazing. I really enjoyed how the art complemented the story so well and Avallone was able to give Acosta some great action to draw, especially the carriage chase and the flaming whip. Consistently fun. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given Sep 12, 2018

    The two Daves have given us another worthy female lead in this mistress of the dark. It's similar to Vampirella but not quite as serious. For those who love Vampirella but crave something more. this will fulfill your fantasies. If you're a big fan of Elvira, to begin with, this comic book won't disappoint you. If you've seen every episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and still crave more, give this comic a shot, you can file them next to your Dark Horse collection. A fun comic worthy of its namesake. *** (8.3 rating) Read Full Review
