The Rundown: Elvira begins to discover that there is something bigger behind Vlad’s plan.
Elvira finds herself in her first non-Dracula movie as she faces off against Frankenstein’s monster. After taking the creature down, Elvira discovers that the monster’s maker is the actual target and confronts Vlad again as he attempts to take the doctor with him.
After losing Doctor Frankenstein and confronting her handler outside of time and space, she lays out the fact that there has to be someone behind the scenes pushing Vlad and travels to the monster sequel to get answers. Answers that will take her to a new, more contemporary horror as Vlad continues to build his monster army.
The Story: Avallone continues to deliver a delightful, fun, funny and entertaining adventure for Elvira in this issue. I love seeing the character using both her analytical and physical skills to hold her own against Vlad and determine that there is more to his plan than anyone else seems to know. The story continues to be fun, engaging, funny and enjoyable. It’s a great love letter to classic horror films and the legacy of them and I look forward to seeing what happens next.
The Art: Baal delivers some fantastic imagery throughout the issue. Not only does the art continue to keep Elvira looking the sexy bombshell she always has been, but it also makes her look capable and skilled in a fight for her life.
