Monster of the Day #1540

Vampira’s punk phase was solely an attempt to get back at…at, uh, her…dammit, I just can’t think of a punchline.

  • Instead of crying uncle she’s gonna make him cry for his mummy.

    I’m surprised none of these Italian horror comics ever made it over the pond and got translated. I mean, stuff like Asterix and the Smurfs did, and sometimes I think Americans buy more manga than the Japanese do. So why not these?

    She’s wasting her time. You can’t get blood from a turnip, either.

  • Gamera977

    Hmmm, I thought she was putting the Vulcan Nerve Pinch on the mummy at first…. Vampire Nerve Pinch???

    The Italian-Egyptian International Wrestling Federation is so fake.

  • bgbear_rnh

    I won’t tell. Mums the word.

  • Jee whiz, thanks. I’d hate to have everyone on this site learn how badly I botched it.

  • Rock Baker

    Maybe they’re just not very good, impressive covers aside?

  • bgbear_rnh

    It seems to be just smut since the rough translation I think at the top is “we give you more” and at the bottom is “forbidden to minors”.

    And her suit…kinda like Vampira, with some 60’s space cloths vibe there. Notice the ‘tail fins’ at the hips and shoulders?

    Vampira. Vampirella. That’s the thing I can’t stomach about Santa Carla, all the damn vampires.

  • Ken_Begg

    Oh, yeah, a lot of these are just straight out pornographic, and sometimes with monsters. Think Japanese tentacle porn and you wouldn’t be too far off.

    Judging by what I’ve seen of late in the graphic novel section of my local bookstore, being awful is no bar to being published in the comics world. Check out DC’s thankfully canceled ‘Wacky Raceland’ for one example.

  • The Rev.

    Although I didn’t read it, I did read a review on another board from someone who did. It sounded absolutely atrocious, even worse that that garbage “Powerpuff Girls” reboot.

  • Rock Baker

    It’s one of those businesses where a lot of it seems to be who you know, not what your actual abilities are. And of course, in addition to knowing the right guy, there’s a lot of towing the party line. If your political thinking is in the ‘correct’ place, you can get away with whatever dreck you want to put out there. Independent publishers are a bit more inclined to trying to put out better product, but they usually lack the resources of the majors.

    May I know the address for this review? The few I’ve read were delighted with the thing. Be a welcome change to read a review by someone who has better taste.

  • Marsden

    This is one of those singing battles on that The Voice show, isn’t it. Adam will probably steal the vampire.

  • Rodford Smith

    That hairstyle reminds me of _Werewolf of London_.
