Vampirella Comics Magazine

Current Status
In Season

We gave it a B-

Most red-blooded fanboys don’t need much of an excuse to ogle a book featuring Vampirella. The high concept here is that this new ”magazine” gives you both actual comics and comics coverage. While the Vampi strips are well worth savoring, such shoulda-been-meaty reads — like an interview with comics guru Alan Moore — feel bemusingly dull and ponderous. More’s the pity, because VCM’s basic idea — to be a literate forum for horror comics fans — is a good one. Here’s hoping it ultimately finds its footing as a publication we’ll actually want to read with both hands.
