    The characters are the highlight of the issue as the villain and her plot are introduced. Cassie is the big winner, with enough personality to fill a room. Her companion Vlad has some fun moments, too, but Vampirella serves only to provide exposition. I enjoy both characters enough to continue, though I'm hoping the story has the vampire doing more. The visuals, however, were terrific noir pieces that wowed. Read Full Review

    This book, to me, is a no brainier in that I am sure that there is a cross section of fansto which both characters appeal. It is good to see that Dynamite, via Aldridge and Lobosco, respect their audienceby producing high quality book. Read Full Review

    Hack/Slash vs. Vampirella #1 is a fun and enjoyable comic that is easy to recommend.

The mysterious elements within this story also leaves reason to return for more, with the interaction between Cassie and Vampirella being simply astonishing. Read Full Review

    On art, Lobosco is also another unknown to me, but again, I was really impressed. Something I've noticed a lot of artists do these days to cut down on time needed to complete a comic is to completely and utterly forget about backgrounds which Lobosco does not. Yes, there are a few panels that don't have any, but for the most part, this comic feels alive and it's not just because of the characters. Read Full Review

    Hack/Slash cs. Vampirella #1 screams formulaic "set-up" issue, but has enough personality to keep me coming for more. Read Full Review

    It's a crossover book; the villain is going to be easily defeated, everyone is going to get their shit in, and that's all this is about. It's just a reminder that these two franchises exist while catering to fans of both properties. Read Full Review
