DEBUT ISSUE!  From the team that brought you the seismic VAMPIRELLA VS. PURGATORI series comes the solo follow-up for the demon of dark humor!  Purgatori's really living the vampire demon life. She's got Lilith's nasty mind worm eating her willpower. She's going bug-nuts crazy. And now, there are a bunch of witches targeting her with their weird body-snatching schemes. Clearly, it's time for some quiet introspection and careful planning, right?  Get ready for bloody mayhem instead!

    PURGATORI (VOL. 2) #1 positions the demon vampire as a damaged demi-god trying to make peace with herself and the world. Fawkes expertly takes a not-necessarily-good main protagonist and sets up a heros journey readers can get behind with stellar efficiency. And the art team has taken significantly improved strides from the last Purgatori mini-series. Read Full Review

    This is a fascinating lead in issue. The use of time is just as interesting. We see the result of the fight in the first page and the rest up to the very end is a flashback. This issue leaves a lot of questions that need to be answered and I look forward to those answers. Read Full Review

    The Vampirella/Purgatori miniseries did a lot of the heavy lifting of getting me to like Purgatori so I'm definitely keen to see where all of this goes. I like the character and concept that we get here and the stinger bit at the end definitely makes me want to see more of what the real plan is here. Read Full Review

    This new Purgatori arc is loaded with mystery, sensuality, and violence using touchstones of previous pop culture successes but not going to far with those influences so as not to be classified as an original work that will leave readers questioning what will come next as they reach the last page. With Purgatori here in this brand new number one, "Witches Get Stitches" is the new benchmark on how to win over crowds both familiar and brand new to the Dynamite imprint . Read Full Review
