    Gunduz's art perfectly complements the tone and style of this story. There is an effective mixture of character and atmosphere that engage the reader visually. I really enjoy the look of this series and this issue particularly. Read Full Review

    Vampirella #5 is undoubtedly an exciting turning point for the series to set new events into motion, but it loses its focus on the titular character in the process. Read Full Review

    With each issue of his run on VAMPIRELLA, writer Christopher Priest has continued to delve into what makes the titular character tick. It's a fine character study, but five issues in, we still have little in the way of narrative, structure, or direction to hold the reader's interest. Read Full Review

    While I continue to wait to see if this twelve-issue storyline makes sense anytime soon and prove itself to be interesting, I'll admit to coming back for more because of the artwork. Gundu's work is pretty great here and I love his designs across the board. We get a good bit of time with Nyx as well and he's got a great look for her that has me wanting a whole lot more. I want to be enthusiastic about this series but Priest's story just hasn't found the target yet when it comes to me. Read Full Review

    Wherever Vampirella is heading, it would be well served by picking up the pace and not spending another issue raising some concepts without any clear purpose or intent. Read Full Review

    You wouldn't think a story about a hot half-naked vampire woman could be so boring, but there you are. Read Full Review
