Body

Vampirella #38 has an air of finality to it, albeit hurried up a might more than regular readers might like, and indeed this issue brings this current incarnation of the bloody bombshell to a close.

But I am sure it will not be long before we see covers with a scantily clad female vampire on it. Patience is its own reward …

… Well, except perhaps fior readers really interested in this Vampirella yarn and not just the covers, a number that includes this reader.

Brandon Jerwa has handled Vampirella with a deft hand, but unfortunately it seems he has much story and few pages (even at a 40-count), and this final issue of the series volume not only seems rushed but downright sparse.

Everyone has been waiting for the secrets of our heroine’s returned mom, but the shocks come too fast and furious, the pain that should be a great one is left hanging in staid air. Vampirella deserves better than this.

The craftsman Heubert Khan Michael does his best to follow Jerwa’s fast-paced script, but quiet moments are left out, painful moments the reader has waited for ignored for run-of-the-mill stuffing.

We will miss our blood-sucking trouble-shooter. Hope it is not for long?
