    One thought on “Vampirella Volume 1: Crown of Worms”

    1. The strong prey on the weak, isn't that right?How does it feel to be the prey, children?If you're one of my friends, you're probably looking at that cover and thinking "Christopher, what are you reading? Couldn't you find something more sexist to read? /s" To which my reply would be "uhm of course I could. Did you forget we're on the internet?" But that cover isn't how Vampirella actually looks in this series. Instead, we get this: The old school non-there outfit does make an appearance, but I'd [...]

    2. Vampirella is a vampire that hunts other vampires and is always hot on the trail of her old nemesis Vlad Dracula. As she tracks a new army of vampires, what she presumes is a sickness is in fact a new threat to vampires that is looking for a host. She holds the key to stopping this takeover but must battle her own demons before she can make things right.I'm not familiar with the Vampirella storylines and as this was a reboot of an old series I feel I'm missing out on a lot of back story. That be [...]

    3. It's been a long time since I read Vampirella. I tried back in my teenage years because of out of control hormones and Millar and Morrison having a stab at the vampire princess. It was good, but a second dip into older material felt almost at odds what the two Scots had done, and made their run seem like it was good thanks to the calibre of the writers.This is the start of Dynamite's attempt to reinvent the character, although the plot seems very much a continuation of previous series.There's no [...]

    4. What a ride! I loved everything about this. I'm sorry but it's going to be kind of hard to be objective about this, so I'm not even going to try. I love comics and I love stories about vampires, and when you combine the two it's hard to come up with something that I don't like.It's my first time reading something with Vampirella and I have no idea why it took me so long. Actually I think there is only one other comic series that I've read with vampires, American Vampire, Vol. 1. I've read some m [...]

    5. Changing one retro for another Trautmann's Vampirella is a blood and angst protagonist that has little to do with the classic Vampirella's classic camp. The bad girl attitude that Dynamite's take here has seems to retro-90s view to "up-date" Vampirella. It's action filled but the characterization is lacking.

    6. Crown of Worms is the first attempt by Dynamite to introduce the character to modern audiences in 2010. It's not the most current Vampirella (Hollywood Horror) adaptation, which I've read and will review the graphic novel coming out in November, but it does give an idea what Dynamite thought were the fundamentals of the character. Specifically, the idea Vampirella was really-really angry all the time. With more than a passing familiarity with the character, I should note Vampirella is tradition [...]

    7. I've had limited exposure to Vampirella aside from the odd single issue comic here and there, as a result, I wasn't sure what to expect from the 2011 series iteration by Dynamite. Volume 1 of the series, Crown of Worm, comprises the first 7 issues and is chock full of fight scenes and reads more like an action based story rather than the pulp-horror story the character lends herself to. The story picks up Vampirella as a hero well entrenched in her quest for vengeance following the presumed deat [...]

    8. I must say that I have never read series which would like this much with each cover. Every single cover (including variants) have Vampirella in her swimsuits ? Yet there is no almost no panels that she is in her swimsuit (except for end and her visions ?). I like new Vampirella Blade-style gear. It looks functional and I like functional :DStory is OK nothing spacial but art is nice and I like the combination of worms, apocalypse and vampires.

    9. Used to read Vampirella back in my youthful days. With Unlimited letting me take a look at a recent incarnation (well as in 2011 recent), I thought I'd see how her character is doing these days. The story arc was a good one for 6 issues, with 1 standalone at the end. Not bad. Good art. Maybe I was just being nostalgic for the good old Vampi magazine days.

    10. Sweet DreamsThis was an amazing storyline. Evil older than creation and a special key to dream it. I recommend this to anyone looking for a great graphic novel with great art work and awesome stories.

    11. Entertaining, but repetitive There isn't anything terribly groundbreaking here, but the art was attractive. Always like a woman-powered storyline, even if I was left to wonder how V is able to keep that red bandage "dress/bikini?" together.

    12. Quick readAlways a fan favorite and this has a great selection of artwork. Definitely worth the read. And take some time to enjoy the art.

    13. Cool comicInteresting with a good amount of cool gory scenes and action. Awesome art! Various other comic book artists contributions for multiple vampirella s.

    14. Vampirella: Corona de gusanos, supone el regreso del mito de los 60, la vampira de curvilínea figura, deslenguada, guerrera y sensual.Vampirella y sus historias han sufrido varias modificaciones a lo largo de los años, pero la mayor de todas fue el arco argumental en el que convertían Drakulón (su planeta de origen desde los inicios) en humo, un recuerdo falso implantado en la mente de la chupasangres. Esa fue una de las sorpresas que cabreó a más fans, granjeándose la desaprobación de l [...]

    15. The first thing I have to say - Vampirella spends the majority of this collection dressed more conservatively (aside from the covers), which is a bit of a relief. She's still a powerful character with charm and style, but it's more about her attitude than her attributes. And considering who she's battling, that's where the focus belongs. Instead of vampires, Vampirella spends most of the collection battling children of the Worm, a creature that looks a bit like it stepped out of Dune (albeit onl [...]

    16. Can't keep a good vamp downI first read Vampirella back when I was a teenager and if memory serves me I still have some put up somewhere. This new incarnation of Vampirella is as good as the old. The only thing different is it is in color. The earlier ones were black and white magazines to be able to have a scantily clad main character, they were not comics according to the comic code. The story line in this graphic novel was great as Vampirella was still putting down vamps and looking to end th [...]

    17. Bring back the VampVampirella is so much more than the iconic red outfit. This story makes her plight against her kind noble but at the same time this barely scratches any surface layer. Her covers are still drawn only for the male gaze and she ends up in a battle for her mind in that bathing suit. She could be so much more, but in this collection she's nothing more that a flesh wound.

    18. The book is good if you have been reading Vampirella for years, unlike a first timer like me. I am only familiar with Vampi, from those fantastic art from various artists contributing to the cover. This book actually got eye candy art from artists from Joe Mad to J Scott Campbell. The pacing of the story was kinda confusing, how did new supporting character became comfortable with the new change of her life within 4 pages? why was Vlad Dracula no so badass against a big threat? so many questions [...]

    19. She's back with a vengeance Always liked Vampie, glad she's back fighting the good fight. She's stronger with other powers so taking on a nest is no surprise as she hunts the big bad himself, Dacula. But there are other forces working against her. This is one battle she can't afford to lose. With the help of a young girl whose life she saves, Vampire might stand a chance. Really good!

    20. Comics being somewhat short in nature, very easily being completed within one sitting even in omnibus collected editions. I was unable to completely finish this task. Perhaps it can be explained by my growing disinterest in vampires. Certainly not in female protagonists. Just couldn't care less about this world.

    21. Weak art and story does not quite pass musterThe art and story are very generic. it's a generic character but this is a particularly uninteresting version. If you like lots of boobs there are some cool alt covers ;)

    22. Brings back memories I remember reading the original V stories. Loved them. While this one is fun's a rehash of other stories. Try "Lost Girl", the TV show.ry much same story line, along with "Buffy" and "Angeĺ.

    23. This really was just OK. I wasn't particularly impressed with either writing or art.For the heck of it, I'll read volume 2 in a minute.

    24. How wrong can Vampirella be treated?Well, apparently pretty wrongly.But the cover gallery at the end of this book was nice.

    25. Good book to startIts an excellent book to jump into the vampirella series. Sofia was actually one of the best highlights especially in the end.

    26. Basically, is Blade with tits. Its nice to have a golden age heroin back in a new series. And the series are worth reading if you like sexy femme fatales kicking some vampiric ass.

    27. VampyAs a long time Vampirella fan I came into this with pretty high expectations, needless to say this new take on Vampy did not disappoint one bit.
