Talk about getting “a head” of the pack!

Vampirella #37 tackles the on-again/off-again relationship of the Queen of the Night and her mother, Lilith, in a whole new way this time around.

Seems that mighty sword swipe of Vampirella’s did not exactly do the job on Beatrice after all! Now the beheaded … er uh … head of Sister Midnight is making all sorts of demands of Vampirella’s mother, and none of them deal with what position she will be set in the Hall of Archives, lol.

The danger is dread and puts both Lilith and her daughter on the spot, with Vampirella following through on one of the grandest adventures of her long, long life.

Brandon Jerwa weaves a tale of intricate betrayal and ultimate savagery, with not just a little humor both broad and dark. His take on Vampirella is straight forward and our heroine’s rip-roarin’ monster bashing this issue is par excellent!

Speaking of monster bashing and other scenes, the art of Heubert Khan Michael carries the story greatly, with fiery scenes of Hell, breath-taking underwater scenes and panel arrangement that makes each point made by Jerwa pop!

I worry about this magazine with the title of the next adventure ("The Last Vampirella Story"), but I am keeping my fingers crossed. Adventure like this should not be missed!
