    I've been a Vampirella fan since the 70's with the old B & W magazines. Any chance I get to buy Vampirella I take, when I say you need to pick up this book I'm dead serious. It's edge of your seat good"until that last page when I see "Next Issue"" I screamed like Luke Skywalker in The Empire Strikes Back, That's how much I wanted to keep reading! Read Full Review

    But it is a book Im interested in reading, a story that makes me chuckle at its gross bits more than once (although for the love of God, Dynamite. Who do you think is reading this book that you need to black out the swear words?), and gives me a developing relationship between two women that turns the table on my expectations immediately. Thats a pretty cool thing all by itself. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Dec 1, 2017

    'Vampirella' #8 is a good entry for new readers who want to jump into a crazy cool dystopian horror dark comedy. Traditional Vampirella fans may be shocked and a little taken aback by this version of their favorite vampire but once they settle into the groove created by Whitley, there's a lot of fun to be had. Dynamite isn't afraid to reinvent their most popular characters from time to time and what Whitley and Belanger have done is propelled Vampirella in a wild new direction. You have to read it to believe it. Get it now! Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 29, 2017

    Jeremy Whitley almost lost me here with what happened to Vicki but the save has me hopeful and it at least gives me more time with the kind of utterly delightful banter between her and Vampirella. This book tries to cover a lot that's actually a little and it feels a little too drawn out and exposition heavy when it should have been a bit more streamlined. But it conveyed who Vampi is at this point and what she's dealing with and that has me curious to see more of her evolution. Andy Belanger still feels like the secret weapon here as I just love his presentation of Vampirella but there's some great fun with the biker gang that we get here with the poses and facial expressions that just make me grin far, far, too much. I'm still kind of on the fence here to a degree as this is really uncharted territory but that could have some really great payoff if given the chance. Read Full Review
