Ah, the '90s, our strange yet dynamic link between the excess of the '80s and the pretensiousness of the aughts.  A time when heroes were born, died and were reborn (again). Amidst all that creative chaos, the form of comics was torn between the muscle bound proliferation of All Things Pouch and the heady brew offered up by the British  Comics Invasion.

Now, in the long-ago year of 1992, VAMPIRELLA finds herself a vampire trapped between not just two worlds but two genres!  When a "bad girl model" hired to portray Vampy at conventions and signings is plunged into a terrorist incident, she's forced to fac more

    I was really looking forward to this book. I remember buying Vampi back in the day when she was at Harris Publishing and was looking forward to a walk back through yesteryear. Instead, I find a book that doesn't appreciate the fans of the character and to some extant, doesn't appreciate the character herself, in an almost meta-message book that ridicules anyone for a buying a book for anything other than the purest or the self appointed socially acceptable reasons.

    VAMPIRELLA 1992 is intended (I think) to be a satirical sendup of every extreme trope of the 90s, but despite the admirable art execution, becomes a gross parody of itself. Read Full Review

    If I could describe this issue I would say, weird story with a very good art team. Honestly saying I think that Robertos art catchs perfectly what the 90s vibes was and At the same time Ramos's art reminds me of those 80s British artists. Both artists got the weird idea of Bemis. Honestly saying this story is a weird match between 2 completely different spectros. One specific thing that hitted my mind when I was reading the story and them I search about it, Marcos ramos was the same artist of vampirella valentine's issue, we don't have some informations or any descriptions about him besides his deviant account, there I saw he's 23, so he's new at the industry and age! He has a great versatility on style and great narrative. I do love his wo more

    Dreadfully bad. Remember the bad old days of 90's comics? Remember the misogyny? This creative team does.

    I bought this because some of the recent Vampi books have been fun, and my FLCS ordered it thinking I'd want it. Boy was that a mistake. Unless you pine for the days when artists with names like Liefield and Lee couldn't find a female character they couldn't draw with impossible proportions, and a script as contorted, AVOID.

    Review ✍

    Vampirella 1992 is one of the weirdest comics I’ve read in a long time. I am honestly shocked that it got green-lit in the current year, especially in light of the current political climate.

    The book opens with some toxic masculinity and the threat of rape towards a female character. It’s an oddly unsettling start to the book and could have worked if the rest of the book was as serious as the introduction. Sadly, the rest of the comic is all over the place.


    I could dig into plot details but it honestly doesn’t matter. There are some cameo’s from a few other 90’s Bad Girls, presented more
