L.A. Is a strange town on the best of days, but in the summer of 1974, the City of Angels feels especially demonic. As temperatures soar and wildfires burn, all sorts of strange creatures are drawn to town, including Vampirella. While Vampi goes out and hunts down monsters all across La La Land - defending humanity from evil - she's also killing it every night on stage as a member of the all-girl rock group Witchkraft - defending rock 'n' roll from a dying scene.

    This is a good issue overall, that has an interesting concept but is a slow builder. If you are new to KISS or Vampirella this is a good issue to ease you into both comic franchises. The art is great. Read Full Review

    This is a good first issue that doesn't pander to fans of both Vampirella and KISS but gives them good character interaction and development. Read Full Review

    KISS and Vampirella are two very cool things, and Annapaola Martello and Valentina Pinto establish this through art that is both dark and campy. Chris Sebela excels at writing both properties separately although his transitions are a little jarring. The theme of rock becoming unpopular in the early 70s because of disco or the Altamont tragedy or Nixon or whatever excuse you want to put here grounds Kiss/Vampirella #1 so it doesnt devolve into a generic end of the world in L.A. story.

    KISS/Vampirella #1 is a great issue to kick off the series. Vampi fans, you're going to love this take on her character. We don't see all too much of KISS just yet, but I'm hoping that changes really soon. The concept of throwing rock and roll into the mix of storytelling is a great one, and I can't wait for more!
