Vampirella #10

Okay, I've never been much of a horror comic reader in general nor a Vampirella fan in particular. That said, when a comic chooses to celebrate one of my favorite cosplayers with a variant cover I'm all-in to show some support. Way to go Joanie!

For those, like me, a little unsure what they are stepping into, writer Jeremy Whitley does a good job setting the stage for the dystopian future where our heroic vampire now lives and offering a backstory for Pantha who plays a major role in the current plotline. It seems the future is a pretty screwed up shitstorm where no one can die and old friends want you dead.

The former goddess, now cursed bloodthirsty immortal, blames Vampirella for not stopping her descent into madness and apparently is willing to take out centuries of aggression on her former friend including throwing the vampire and her bae into gladiatorial combat. Let's just say things don't go so well for our heroine. If you aren't already a fan there's not much here to grab your interest (other than Joanie's cover). For fans.
