Book Description

For the first time ever! Collected in this massive trade! Vampirella enters the modern era courtesy of Kurt Busiek. From the 1991 classic limited series "Morning In America" comes Vampirella's resurgence as she prepares to battle a new threat from the Cult Of Chaos in the form of Nathan Shroud and the Unseelie Congress by Kurt Busiek and Louis LaChance. Volume 5 also collects three short stories from the Vampirella Summer Nights Special from 1992 which chronicle some of the key players from Morning In America such as Adam and Pendragon, written once again by Kurt Busiek with art by top talents like Dave Cockrum, James Fry and Richard Howell. These classic stories were originally in black and white but have been re-mastered and re-colored. Also included is Vampirella: Dracula War collecting issues 1-4 of Vampirella's 1993 series, written by Kurt Busiek and Tom Sniegoski with art by Jim Balent and Louis Small Jr. All this and more!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Exactly a Powderkeg from Dynamite... January 18, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
[Vampirella Masters Series, Volume 5 - 2011 - Dynamite Publications] This, for me, was the weakest edition of the Dynamite collections we'll ever see (thankfully), as they were dredging up some old fodder from 1991-92 with the 'Morning in America' story, which originally appeared in B+W and heralded Harris Comics 're-vamping' of this icon. Adding color makes it look even worse though, more comic-like than later editions. The story was sluggish, the artwork the worst I've seen in any Vampi tale, the page layout like something from an early 60's DC comic. It's dated, uninspired and our luscious heroine never looked worse or more sexless (how is this possible?), and had a bad hair day too. In spite of the reemergence of old Warren key players like Pendragon and Adam, it's pretty much a write-off (no pun intended). It's almost 200 pages of convoluted confusion, and too wordy trying to stretch back in Vampi's mythos while moving forward in a 90's timeline, but ends up like being on a treadmill - when all's said and done, we've gone nowhere. Kurt Busiek is just an acceptable writer who seems to constantly be rehashing old characters and villains (the Cult of Chaos, The Crimson Chronicles) from the golden age of Warren Vampirella sagas without really adding much of his own vision, IMO.

Thankfully, this edition's salvaged by the artwork of Jim Balent and Louis Small Jr. in the four-part 'Dracula War' from 1993 and, though it too was penned by Kurt Busiek, the combo of story and art is a vast improvement, and reason enough to bag this if you never read it before. Almost all the Dynamite collections are essential reading for Vampi aficionados, some are downright glorious (read my reviews of all), but this one doesn't offer much bang for your Dynamite buck. 3 stars at best.
