We already know how ferocious a warrior the She-Devil with a Sword is. Vampirella/Red Sonja #9 shows us how even deadlier Red Sonja is when she becomes a vampire.
Dynamite Entertainment‘s Vampirella/Red Sonja series has convinced me that this comic book publisher’s two most popular characters are made for each other. I’ve been a fan of Red Sonja since I was a kid. Then I fell in love with Vampirella when I reviewed Vengeance of Vampirella #8, which was the first Vampirella comic I read.
So what happens when you turn a She-Devil into a vampire? Spoilers ahead.
Not only that, but also James Bond #6 features one of the classic Bond villains, Mr. Big, whom Yaphet Kotto played in the 1973 Bond film “Live and Let Die”. Incidentally, this was the first movie to star the late Roger Moore as Bond.

While you might be rooting for the Lords of Order against the Lords of Chaos, one thing we learn from Vengeance of Vampirella #9 is that they are sore losers.
It turns out that the Lords of Order have a secret weapon. A failsafe. A last resort. Because they are afraid that they might eventually lose to the relentless forces of Chaos. So they have made sure that if Order loses, all creation will be destroyed.
Late to the party, but I finally finished Season 1 of “Doom Patrol” and the first three episodes of Season 2. And I absolutely love this TV show.
Even though I’m a comic book geek, I wasn’t really familiar with this team of misfits from DC Comics. I only read a few issues from Grant Morrison’s run, which I liked, but that was it.
In a way, I’m glad I don’t really know the comic book incarnations of these characters. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them with fresh eyes, without a lot of comic book baggage. Though I do recognize some Easter eggs. Plus the Morrison run influenced the show, after all, though it has reimagined these characters and created a fascinating world of its own.
I will only tackle Season 1 in this column piece, and will try to minimize the spoilers. If you haven’t seen the show, I advise you to just get through the first episode or two. You definitely have to get used to the absurdity and dark humor. “Doom Patrol” is a batshit crazy series that will defy your expectations of what a superhero show should be. And I absolutely love it because of this.
In fact, Vampirella‘s resident genius Christopher Priest is also the writer, so you know this will be an excellent series. And that you should prepare to have your mind blown.
This first issue features the all-new Draculina, Pantha, Nyx, and Chastity being lured to rural Georgia to the town of Ashthorne. Can they avert an all-out war against nearby Sacred, Georgia? Should they?
