    I still have no idea what's going on with Vampirella but I do find myself intrigued by it. Paul Cornell has some really engaging works out there that I've read and I've found over time that they tend to read a bit better in compiled form for me, though some of the more dense works are easier to enjoy in monthly form. With Vampirella, the ideas are disconnected and intriguing at this point and I'm hopeful we'll get something really meaty to latch onto soon to start connecting with while exploring more of it when it comes to how this world came to be. I really enjoyed the zero and first issues and this one expands things a bit more but felt like it was a little too caught up in the wacky action when it needed a touch more grounding. I want more of this Vampi, however, as I'm completely smitten with this incarnation of her. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jeremy Daw May 20, 2017

    This title continues to intrigue, entertain and disturb in more or less equal measure. The plot is rollicking along nicely and the art is generally very impressive. The pseudo-60s vibe is distinctly British, too. At times the book is extraordinarily reminiscent of Alan Moore-era Captain Britain and there is nothing whatsoever wrong with that. The insertion of a revamped Vampirella into a dystopian future is a great idea and, at the moment, it appears as if Cornell and Broxton are fully prepared to take advantage of the creative opportunities that collision of character and setting provides. In short, this is good stuff. Roll on, issue 3! Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Levi Remington Apr 12, 2017

    Emotionally barren, lacking in excitement, and struggling artistically, Vampirella continues its everlasting stumble through mediocrity in issue #2 of Dynamite's 2017 relaunch. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Apr 14, 2017

    Vampirella may have jumped to a bold new world, but the character has lost her edge. She's not the fierce and sexy heroine she once was. Instead, she's a gal about town that occasionally gets into a fight or two. It's a Sex and the City version of Vampirella. Read Full Review

    One of the toughest questions a series can ask itself, and the most important too, is what genre is it? Vampirella traditionally is a horror adventure series that has staggered into action from time to time. The thing that made Vampirella the groundbreaking horror character that stands with top figures like Swamp Thing, Andrew Bennet, and Ghost Rider is the cutting edge of the series lead. Vampirella was always pushing bounds, whether it was dressing in skimpy clothing or being a leading lady in the 70's. Over the years she's continued to go big. Since Dynamite purchased the character, they haven't done any of that. Rather, Vampirella has hit a rut. Domesticated horror, sexuality that meshes with the 21st century's on views. What the book has become is a classic genre book turned into a slice of life mixed with tame action storytelling.
