Dan Abnett on Vampirella
« on: 02 November, 2020, 04:00:33 PM »
Maybe old news now, but I just read that current 2000AD MVP Dan Abnett will be writing a forthcoming cosmic-set Vampirella mini-series.
Artwork by erstwhile Art Droid Paul Davidson.

Looks nice.

I saw this but Vampirella, can the mighty Dabnett even take me to that title?

If anyone can can-can, Dan can.

Don't be dismissive of the character Colin - Christopher Priest has been wringing some decent horror fare out of her leotard in the past year or two.

Will be on the look-out for this. The last few years he has become a trusted writer and I will purchase something just because he has written it.
Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

Sorry to report that I won't be reading this past issue 1.

Competent work from DA as always, and nice flowing art from Paul Davidson, but the premise doesn't hold my interest - no idea, or inclination to care, who the large cast of the Z list Justice League are.
