This is it!  You've gotten to see the Great Beyond, meet the fellow who's running it, and savor the world as we don't know it that feeds into everything!  Now it's time for Vampy to do something that will change... well, everything!  The world will never be the same after this, and that just may not be a good thing!

    Vampirella vol. 4 #5 ends fake Heaven for now but opens the door to some really interesting developments in the year three thousand and something. The whole thing is weird fun that deserves a spot in your collection so by all means go out right now and grab yourself a copy! Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Shaun Barbour Aug 13, 2017

    The writing styles of Paul Cornell are well thought-out through the panels of this installment of our favorite blood sucking female. My only wish is that there was a more constructive way to have taken care of the colorful language than just redacting it. The redaction format of the obvious verbiage became a distraction as it is a solid box in a more loosely formatted comic. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 16, 2017

    But it's just a strange kind of freedom that in a way I'm glad doesn't reset things like it was a dream or a virtual reality trap in the present day. At the same time I still haven't found a reason to be invested in things. I thoroughly enjoyed the zero issue and a lot of the first issue but the series has struggled to give me something really compelling to get invested in withcharacters or story since then. So I'm curious to see where it'll go from here now that the world has changed and we're still in this strange future. It's an interesting take on Vampi but it's also one that makes it clear why a number of fans just aren't connecting with it at all, much like the previous series that ended very early.

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Aug 16, 2017

    His counterpart on art, Broxton has been equally great. All of his characters are a little rough around the edges, but that works for the book. I really enjoy his take on Vampirella as well since he brings a certain coquettishness to our heroine. You know, just by looking at her that she not only has a plan in mind at all times, but knows that she will prevail in the end. It also helps that he is inker and colourist of his own work since it keeps the art consistent throughout, a major plus these days in the comic book world. Read Full Review
