It's full-throttle throwback action, courtesy of superstar writer Dan Abnett (Avengers, Warhammer) and red-hot artist Pasquale Qualano (DC Vs. Vampires)! Vampirella and her trusty sidekick Dyna Might have become superheroes, and are assigned to save a world that looks strangely similar to 1940s Earth, rife with crime and corruption, and two-fisted superheroes who don't take kindly to meddling from interdimensional vampire aliens! Can Vampirella survive an onslaught of conflict from villains and heroes alike, all while solving a murder mystery and keeping her precocious sidekick alive?

    Comical Opinions - Gabriel Hernandez May 24, 2023

    VAMPIRELLA VS. THE SUPERPOWERS #1 is a practically perfect mashup of horror, sci-fi, detective noir, and spy thriller all rolled into one. Abnett's complex plot works on multiple levels, the character work is outstanding, and the cliffhanger ends on a high note. That said, the art is good but not great and suffers from a lack of depth/polish. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 25, 2023

    Abnett is trying to do A LOT with the series. Vampirella is quite present on the page, but shes lost in so much worldbuilding. Abnett has many other characters to introduce. They all make it to the page with enough presence to register a very complex world. Given the right amount of time, Abnett should make them all as interesting as they deserve to be. Hopefully, he can do so without pulling Vampirella too far out of the center of the panel. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles May 24, 2023

    Final ThoughtsVampirella Versus The Superpowers #1 is a slightly better than average kickoff to the miniseries. Vampirella is as fun as always and her interactions with everyone around her (including The Project) are fun to read. The S Division officers seem very clich though, and I found their scenes made the issue drag a bit. Hopefully, they will improve in future issues. Read Full Review

    Vampirella vs. The Superpowers is overstuffed and struggles to cohere, but there's sufficient promise for those who find themselves intrigued to return. I'll count myself amongst those readers for issue #2 next month. Read Full Review
