BONUS REVIEW by "Doc" Shaefer


Dang it! I keep hoping for a Vampirella reboot that I can really enjoy. And while the multiple covers are AMAZING by such artists as FranK Cho, Alex Ross, and Nathan Szerdy, I find the story to be nothing new. With the help of an undead guy, a crotchity psychiatrist, and Vampirella's Mom (?), writer Christopher Priest appears to be trying to sort though the multiple origins of Vampirella and truthfully I think he's bitten (pun totally intended!) off more than he can chew. Since the ending of her black and white adventures in the pages of her Warren magaine, so many people have tried to work with this toothy vixen and failed. The problem is that with each new update, the changes might seem clever at the time but quickly become a confussing mess. This is one of those rare cases where a full blown return to basics reboot might be the only way to go.

I give it 6 out of 10 Grahams
