Vengeance Of Vampirella Issue 17 Review

The opening text sums up this story perfectly:

“For the past 25 years, humanity has been barely holding on – the playthings and slaves of a multitude of supernatural monstrosities – led by Mistress Nyx and the Chaos Lord – that have made the earth their own.

Now, a small band of survivors combs the ruins in hopes of finding their savior, or finally sealing their very doom.”

Literal chills reading that…

So, the stage is set and the things cannot get any grimmer our bizarre group of heroes have armed themselves to the teeth and are going to make one final play to save the world. What could go wrong?

When people tell me, comics are for kids I tell them to read books like this. Yes, there is the violence and gore that is obviously for older readers, but there is so much more. Vengeance of Vampirella deals with the concepts of chaos and order, our fates in the bigger universe and betrayal. These are not tiny little subjects, but it does this with a mixture of finesse and some pretty quippy dialogue too.

As with the last issue the art if spectacular Kewber Baal has done a fantastic job bringing this to life and his work is only improved with the addition of colors by Omi Remalante JR.

I do think these types of end of the world stories have been told before, but this is a very fresh take and one I think anyone could easily enjoy.
