Continuing Dynamite’s celebration of Vampirella’s 45th anniversary! Upon learning of Vampirella being marked as a vessel for Lady Umbra, Demon Queen of the Shadows, her contacts in Cestus Dei label her a threat and send an elite hit-squad of monster-killers--the Mallus Maleficarum, aka the Witch-Hammer--lead by the implacable Father Nicodemus, to dispose of her. With her world abruptly turned upside down, Vampirella finds herself unexpectedly allied with the strangest bedfellow imaginable.

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Jul 3, 2014

    Much in the same way that Gail Simone has made relevant Red Sonja again, I believe that Nancy A. Collins is likewise bringing relevance to Vampirella. I give high praise to Dynamite for recognizing the talent of these ladies in putting them both in the right place to make some comic magic. Well done all. Looking forward to seeing how this one will play out. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jul 1, 2014

    Vampirella #2 is exactly the right entry for fans of the supernatural or horror genres. Two issues in and it's apparent that this is a winning concept that will only get more exciting as Chaos, Cestus Dei and Mallus Maleficarum come into play. Recommended. Read Full Review

    The Vampirella team look like they are able to bring our heroine into a whole new arc with little difficulty, the depth of story is intriguing and the art is strong although not stellar. I look forward to seeing where this issue leads and on it's own its still a great read. This however is certainly no jumpig on and should really nearly be read after you have dived in to issue 1.

    This issue definitely increases the interest level and sets the stage for where it's going to go in a clearer way. Read Full Review

    Needless Essentials Online - Stan Ford Jun 28, 2014

    Do I recommend this comic? I do for fans of the more horror-themed Vampire genre and fans of Vampirella. Unfortunately it's riding that fine line that separates good comics from mediocre ones. It can cross that line, but it has to step up in order to get there. Nancy Collins is the right writer for this character, I'm just not certain that this is the right art team for her.

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Jul 4, 2014

    Vampirella #2 is a perfectly fine comic, but doesn't really have much else besides that. Everything about it is perfectly acceptable, but it's not particularly exciting nor memorable. If you are a big fan of the character, this may be for you, but for everyone else who is sort of interested, it's not really recommended. Read Full Review
