Halloween! It's that special time of year when children get their first basic lesson in the cornerstone of Socialism. . . Redistribution of Wealth! I have a giant bowl of candy. Those who have less candy than me come to collect a portion of my candy under the threat of punishment if I do not comply. This continues until I have no more candy.
But enough of THAT. We're here to talk about Halloween comics!
I'm going to come clean right off the top here. I've never bought a Vampirella comic on purpose. The 3 or 4 I have in my collection (including the comic at hand) have come to me by way of buying packs of comics where there's 10 random comics for $5 and they're sealed up so you can only see the top and bottom comic.
Most comic stores have these deals, so I assume you know what I'm talking about. . .it's the true definition of Longbox Junk because it's a total random spin of the wheel on what you're getting beyond those two comics you can see.
Vampirella is a character that's been around for a long time. There are a LOT of Vampirella comics out there. I've never bought a Vampirella comic on purpose because it's pretty obvious that they exist for one reason and one reason only. . ..
I've flipped through plenty of Vampirella comics on the shelf and I find it hard to believe that anyone actually buys Vampirella for the stories any more than when guys protest that they read Playboy for the articles.
THAT SAID. . .
My opinion of Vampirella is based on an extremely low actual exposure to Vampirella. And so I decided that since I'm having Halloween comic fun and I HAPPEN to have a Halloween Special starring Vampirella, why not give her a chance and actually read one of her stories for once and see if I'm judging these comics unfairly. . .
Let's do this!
