Dark Shadows / Vampirella TP

Dark Shadows/Vampirella, Volume One - Patrick Berkenkotter, Marc Andreyko, Jose Malaga Originally Reviewed At: Mother/Gamer/WriterRating: 4 out of 5 ControllersReview Source: NetGalleyReviewer: MeDark Shadows/Vampirella is the crossover story of two legendary vampires, Vampirella and Barnabas Collins (yes the vampire from that weird Dark Shadows movie with Johnny Depp) who are fangs deep in a gruesome murder mystery. It’s a fast-paced blood splattering thriller binding two unlikely heroes and one crazy goddess-vamp villain. Surprisingly enough, I loved this graphic novel much more than I expected. A threat has awakened and women across New York are being slaughtered right under the cities nose. No one is safe, and it’s even more unfortunate if you happen to be a working woman walking alone at night. Our story beings with Collins and Vampirella on the case, both are seeking out leads on one missing girl in particular – a girl that hold ancient ties to Collins. When the two meet, as expected there’s an all out vampire brawl. Vampirella quickly gets a taste of the ancient and he is equally impressed with her reputation. And once fangs are retracted and blood settles, the two team up along with Quentin Collins and Pantha to uncover the mysterious deaths and stop the evil hell-bent on destroying the city. Overall, I enjoyed the Dark Shadows and Vampirella crossover. It’s a fun, sexy quick-read with plenty of action and nonstop blood spatter to make you laugh out loud and maybe curse a little bit too. If you love violent tales and snappy one-liners, then I’m sure you find this compilation both satisfying and exceptionally entertaining.Recommendation: Due to Extreme Violence, Nudity, and Graphic Content, This Comic is Recommended to Adults 18 and Over
