Review: Vampirella #0
Beginning a new and VERY different direction! Vampirella was last spotted in 2016 doing what she does best-defending the world from threats both mystic and evil. She hasn’t been seen since. Now, over a thousand years later, she’s poised to make her fateful return, but the world that awaits her is unlike anything she might expect-or want to defend! It’s the start of an adventure for Vampirella unlike any she’s had in her long and storied history. Don’t miss the train before it leaves the station!
It’s a new beginning in the fourth volume for the classic horror-centric heroine Vampirella. The world has changed a lot since she last stepped out of the darkness. While not much is revealed as to what the state of the world is. It does make one curious to find out. Writer Paul Cornell does a great job as far as that.
The art by Jimmy Broxton is dark, almost mysterious in nature. It all comes together to reveal very little about the world or the prophecy that foretells her awakening. The clothing the characters wear does suggest it takes place at some point in the future. But a lot remains to be seen and I can’t wait to find out.
