    Dave Acostas art is always amazing. He makes Elvira look gorgeous, but also adds some great details in her expressions that signify her intellect and charm. Both the foreground action and backgrounds look vibrant and beautiful. Read Full Review

    Elvira is a hoot. While her show was never something I connected with the character she plays is idea in this kind of form to really take it to a whole different level and explore it with. The humor works very well and the referential side is a delight with the way it has some pretty deep cuts. Avallone keeps things moving well but shifts gears at the end, which was definitely needed after four issues of familiar structure, while Dave Acosta simply does some great work with fantastic designs, details, and care. Combine that with Covalt's color work and this is just exciting to read. Read Full Review

    I do like that the original set up of the chapters is twisting in on itself in Elvira Mistress of the Dark #4. Variations on a theme are more interesting, and now we've reached yet another layer of bad guy. I think the number of jokes has ticked up again, and they're downright clever. It's a good, solid issue. Read Full Review

    Slows down from the previous issue, but I'm sure Avallone is setting up for a great finish. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jan 28, 2019

    As much as I've grown to love horror, it's just as much fun to poke fun at it on occasion. Elvira: Mistress of the Dark pays tribute to the classics, while also sticking it's tongue out at some of the silliest aspects of the horror genre. It's a fast-paced, humorous book starring a macabre icon. What's not to love? Read Full Review

    During the late 80's s Elvira was all at once a sex symbol and the epitome of spooky, fun, and the 'Elvira Mistress of the Dark' film is the embodiment of that fact. So if you like the movie you'll love the comic Read Full Review
