HASH(0x8f7ca960) out of 5 stars Vampi and Barnabas: after 40 years, a boyhood fantasy team-up comes true 22 Jun. 2013
By Albert Tapia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This trade paperback collects the 5 issues in the Dynamite mini-series published last year. I have always been a big fan of both "Dark Shadows" and "Vampirella" (especially during her Warren years, 1969-83). As a kid in the 70s, I often fantasized about Barnabas and Vampi meeting, preferably in a Warren story illustrated by THE master Vampirella artist, the late Jose Gonzalez. Now, 40 years later, the meeting occurs, in a solid but unremarkable color comic, written by Marc Andreyko and illustrated by Patrick Berkenkotter (issues 1-2) and Jose Malaga (issues 3-5), colored by Thiago Dal Bello, lettered by Troy Peteri, and individual covers by Fabiano Neves. The story itself uses the fundamental basics of super-hero meetings, about what you could have expected to see in Marvel Team-Up in the 70s. The plot encompasses not only Barnabas and Vampi, but also their friends Quentin Collins and Pantha, and the story's antagonists are Countess Elizabeth Bathory and Jack the Ripper. A series of bloody murders and abductions brings Barnabas and Quentin to New York City, where they encounter Vampirella and Pantha, also in pursuit of the evil-doers. I was hoping for some romantic sparks between Vampirella and Barnabas, but instead the author matched up Pantha and Quentin, which led to some nice flirtatious interplay between the she-cat and werewolf. (By the way, throughout this story, Pantha and Quentin have a tendency to wind up naked, a peculiar occupational hazard.) The artwork looks rough to me. I much prefer the clear lines of the 60s and 70s. Never mind Warren; even the art in Gold Key's "Dark Shadows" comics looked more appealing and realistic to me. But I admit I'm an old man, and today's comics aficianados might beg to differ. The artists at least often attempt to make Barnabas look like Jonathan Frid, but Quentin looks nothing like David Selby, more like George Maharis in TV's "Route 66." However, in the final, splash panel of part 2, Berkenkotter does make Werewolf Quentin look like his TV image. Personality-wise, Barnabas is portrayed as formal and staid, a fish out of water in the Big City, in contrast with the streetwise Vampirella and uninhibited Pantha, and even the earthy Quentin (perhaps another reason why Pantha is attracted to her fellow shape-shifter). Barnabas and Vampi's respective arch-enemies make cameo appearances, but I won't spoil it. I would rate this as a fast, fun read, sexy and violent in most of the right places. It's certainly not a masterpiece, and not what I had envisioned all those years ago when I was growing up, but it's still a worthy addition to one's Dark Shadows and/or Vampirella collection(s).

HASH(0x90e87ee8) out of 5 stars Insult to the original series 1 Jun. 2013
By Andreas Petofi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a fan of the original series, the idea of Barnabas teaming up with a sleaze like Vampirella, would've been unimaginable.
