A dead city in the middle of a world world filled with violent barbarians is the last place Vampirella would expect to find herself, but here she is - and there's no time for introspection, because someone is out for her blood! She may be lost in a kill-or-be-killed world filled with swords and sorcery, but she still knows how to hold her own... and when she finds out who has it in for her, she's going to prove it.

    The story featuring Vampirella is the standout, as it offers audiences the character's signature sense of humor alongside the blood and beasts. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - William Pace May 3, 2018

    This is the Vampirella book I've been waiting for. New story, a yet classic look and feel- just a perfect blending. You couldn't ask for more a true thing of beauty! Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes May 10, 2018

    This book, when compared to the most recent run of Vampi, feels like a return to greatness. Maybe for classic characters there doesn't need to be such a departure from who they are. The more mature themes in the last book, whilst created with good intentions, delivered a censored version that watered down the production, demeaning the meanings somewhat. With this issue, it's back to basics and its done very well. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson May 18, 2018

    Vampirella is not just a horror icon, but a comic book icon. This one-shot written by Erik Burnham is a testament to that storied legacy. Yes, it's more than a little campy, but that's part of the charm with the character. As an added bonus, there's a gorgeous short story included called "Valaka," originally published in Savage Tales: Volume 1 #19 & 20 that works in the same vein as Vampirella. The two complement each other well. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 13, 2018

    Savage Tales: Vampirella is a fun and dumb gorefest set in a fantasy setting that stands out for its entertaining protagonist and her wicked sense of humor. It would probably be better if it kicked the Valaka portion out and lowered the price a dollar, but the comic is still recommendable as is. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth May 15, 2018

    I would also like to mention the backup story real quick. I'm sure Dynamite decided to add this backup reprint to justify the $4.99 price tag, but I just wish they had picked something a little better. Thematically, it is very similar to Vampirella, Valaka has a very similar look, but otherwise, this story really felt like baby's first sword and sorcery tale. Read Full Review
