    Horror, humor, and shocking visuals make this a Vampirella for the ages. Add nuns with guns into this book and it becomes epic. You ain't read Vampirella until you've read this book! Recommended. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 22, 2019

    Ergun Gunduz delivers some amazing art in this issue. The characters look amazing and the tonal shift in the art between Vampirellas late night activities to her sessions is fantastic. Read Full Review

    While I wait to see what the intent is here I'm at least enjoying what we get from Gundu as his artwork is strong, especially with the color design. There's a great cohesiveness to it and I love all the angles and viewing placement that we get which feels like it's not what we normally get, especially for a character like Vampi. Read Full Review

    Full of gore and pathos, this issue continues the fascinating deconstruction of everyone's favorite bombshell space vampire. Read Full Review

    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Aug 20, 2019

    All good scenes, but none of them belonging to the same story. But maybe it's meant to be inconsistent. Maybe that's the clue that the overarching story is trying to reveal -- that it's all a dream or some mental prison, and we'll look back at this from the first issue forward and smack our heads over how obvious it should have been. But for now, it remains an attractive nuisance -- beautiful to look at, but makes you scratch your head hard enough to leave scars. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - David DeCorte Aug 22, 2019

    The first half of VAMPIRELLA #2 feels a bit like we're spinning our narrative wheels, but not moving in any particular direction. The book's second half redeems it somewhat, but the real story and stakes are yet to show up. Read Full Review

    There's a lot of potential for a solid and cohesive story, but nothing seems to connect in a way that makes sense just yet. Read Full Review

    "Vampirella" #2 is a study in how adult themes are not the only elements of a great comic book. Read Full Review

    The opening issue was good, but in places the dialogue between Vampirella and her psychiatrist became a little confusing. The art too, was a little inconsistent. Neither of these concerns exist in the second issue. Issue 2 of Vampirella by Christopher Priest and Ergun Gunduz is a strong story, making Vampirella a "serious" character with an interesting story to tell.

    I'm pleased with my decision to buy into this series, which was based on Christopher Priest as a writer, and the now notorious interview where he rightly put Chris Arrant in his place.

    It's been a minute since I reviewed Vampirella #1. I liked the first issue but wasn't exactly blow away by anything in it. I wouldn't have made the purchase at all but did so to stand in solidarity with Christopher Priest who had come under vicious attack from mainstream comic journalists looking for another scalp in the culture war.

    This issue gives a better impression of what the series will be about and is also framed around Vampirella's ongoing therapy sessions with Dr. Chary. The rest of the comic details what she's been up to during the past year. The book also introduces allies and a couple of new enemies.

    Vampirella feeds on drug dealers before encountering a group of Satanic Nuns and Werewolves. The bo more
