Filming begins on Elvira's gill monster romance, and she has some questions about her scaly paramour. Why doesn't he ever speak? Why is he never out of makeup? The Mistress of the Dark discovers that "Love Means Never Having to Say You're Soggy", in the second ridiculous issue of this special four-part miniseries.

    While the publishing schedule irks me since there's such a gap between issues, the reality is that you can drop into an issue of this series and it'll be fun. David Avallone makes it enjoyable if you have the basic idea down but a lot of that is baked into an Elvira book to begin with. The second issue gets filming underway and it's a lot of fun to watch unfold and try and put the pieces together with the bigger picture that's being crafted. Strukan's artwork is on point with all of this and I love the way it handles moving between the behind the scenes pieces to film and then to the surreal dream sequence that brings us both Aquaman and Little Mermaid for our leading lady to deal with. It's worth it just for that alone. Read Full Review

    The Shape of Elvira serves as a parody in the way that spoof films haven't been able to do in years. This isn't the Epic Movie or Date Movie version of The Shape of Water. Instead, it's a new story that plays with some of the weirder aspects of that film, with a horror and pop culture icon paving the way with a sly grin. In short, it's just plain fun. Read Full Review
