What do you get when you put two werewolves, a telepath, a vampire from space, and a demonically-charged horror queen in the basement of a mansion filled with monsters? You get the fifth issue of Vampirella, that's what - the epic conclusion to our first arc!

    The first arc wraps up well with some appropriately scary visuals. This shows the famous heroine at her best, taking out a foe with glee. Read Full Review

    This first arc works to set the new status quo for Vampirella.  Writer Kate Leth takes the character on a journey that modernizes her and sets her up in a new locale that's rife with possibilities.  By the end of this issue, the last thing anyone should care about is her new costume (which I still say looks great and makes perfect sense).  Instead, they should be focused on where Vampirella is going next.  I'm more excited to be reading this book than I have ever been and not just because I can now read it in public without feeling a little bit embarrassed.  Move over, Buffy.  There's a new monster hunter in town.

    The opening arc of the third volume comes to a close and we have a one-off issue next time, though weirdly enough the Dynamite site is listing that as issue six of six, making me wonder what's going on after that. Kate Leth has a lot of good stuff to work with when it comes to this property and I like her take on it, but the opening arc just didn't click for me. I really like Casallos' take on the characters with the artwork and as much as I love the quirky covers it feels like they set the wrong mood going into it since it's so different. I'm still surprised how much I enjoy this character after having problems connecting with her years ago but I'm definitely glad to be enjoying it now. And hopefully Kate Leth gets to really dig into her some more and bring some new things to light with the character. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - John Patterson Jul 9, 2016

    The writing is otherwise solid though, and Kate Leth does a great job (even if it's not necessarily to my taste) of keeping the story tight and fast paced. The action sequences are well written and Eman Casallos' artwork is on point, giving colour and depth to the book. It just doesn't feel like the Vampirella I know and love. Read Full Review
