En el texto que cierra su versión recopilada, la escritora Elaine Lee desliza razones de género para explicar el feedback que recibió tras publicarse esta miniserie: Odiada o cuestionada por hombres; unánimemente amada por las mujeres.

No obstante, la gran tara de su moderna propuesta vampírica yace en ser predecible, con un guión falto de sorpresas que página a página avanza a un clímax bastante tibio y una resolución que no sorprende. Pocos bonos para una premisa que, dentro de sus propios cli

In the interests of full disclosure I read this because this was left behind by the apartment's former occupant, and I was about to put in the Half Price Books pile. I thought, well give it a read and see if it is worth keeping.

Overall I would call it a fair vampire story. I did like the additions writer Elaine Lee made to vampire mythology, but I feel that she and the artist fell down in differentiating the look and feel of the female vampires (shades of reading CLAMP manga for characters looki

Five biker vampires kill the cut-price Dracula who made them his brides (seriously, he was called Dave) and go Thelma and Louise with teeth across the USA. This was an early Vertigo miniseries, and it shows ("I was wearing a feminist on my belt, as was the fashion at the time"), but in amongst that slightly formalised feverishness there are some smart ideas, not least the women's hunting tactics. And it's always nice to see Will Simpson art, even if he does seem to completely fluff about one fac ...more

Meet Howler, Screech, Whipsnake, Skeeter and Mink -- five dangerously alluring female vampires thundering down America's highways on Harleys (what else?), drunk on freedom and high octane.

After having decided to turn kill their male leader, the Vamps set out on the open road in search of a new life. Having dealt with him they appear to not really have a clue where to go next so they just head west, leaving quite a bloody trial which doesn't go unnoticed by certain people. One of the Vamps seems

Elaine Leen käsikirjoittama ja William Simpsonin piirtämä "Vamps" on Vertigon kustantama minisarja viidestä seksikkäästä naisvampyyrista (onko populaarikulttuurissa edes sijaa muunlaisille?), joita ajavat eteenpäin niin pohjaton jano, kosto kuin halu päästä mahdollisimman kauas heidät aikanaan luoneesta verenimijästä. Sarjakuva on omassa genressään aika keskiverto tapaus, jonka voi kai - näkökulmasta riippuen - lukea joko feministisenä tai seksistisenä kauhutarinana. Simpsonin kädenjälki tuo mie ...more

Aivan loistava, monenlaisia tunteita herättävä sarjakuva. Nainen subjektina vampyyritarinoissa on harvinaisuus, mutta Vampseissa heitä riittää viisin kappalein. Muistan, kuinka monet naiskatsojat harmittelivat Thelman ja Louisen loppua - patriarkaatin vallan haastava nainen ei kuitenkaan pääse rangaistuksetta. Tässä sarjakuvassa kosto jyrää status quon kuus-nolla, vaikka äidinvaistoa ei tapa kuolemakaan. Piirrosjälki harmitti suttuisuudellaan, ja häiritsi lukemista.

I have no idea how I feel about this collection of comics. It is campy in some regards and has traditional vampirisms in other regards. Sometimes the writing is clever, other times it is painfully cliché. While this is no Carmilla, it is actually written by a woman and has some authentic feeling in it – which can perhaps be contributed to the fact that the vamps were inspired by her friends.

So I guess it was entertaining, which is the whole point of writing.

thank god i bought it cheap...waste of time and money.
Vertigo specialises in good off beat stories, so i thought this would be too. But the plot as well as the illustrations are too weak. The characters are not built and u don't feel for them. Should be avoided.

We are swimming in trite vampire shit lately. This has depth and sex and fun. I hope Elaine has other compelling work out there, because she wrote the hell out of this.

Lagorda conrulos pajerota me dijo que lo comprara sólo por el título. Igual estaba bastante barato y pinta interesante, así que ya lo juzgaremos oportunamente.

I like Vertigo but found this tough going. Premise was ok, but disliked the characters, and the story just drifted...
