Synopsis: A new dimensional shift finds our heroine with sharpened canines, an eye-catching monokini, and a taste for blood…but if that’s what it takes to stop the Great Old Ones from destroying our reality, pour her a Type O plasma on the rocks!

Review: Bettie finds herself in vampire form on planet Vampiron.

The Story

As her quest continues to obtain the four keys and prevent evil demons from taking over her Earth. Bettie Page finds herself in the body of a Vampire and inherits all the traits of enhanced senses and fast reflexes as well as a taste for blood.

Along the way, she bumps into this universes version of Benway. A foe familiar to her from her very first mission.

The Artwork

Julius Ohta gets to have a lot of fun as Bettie is pursued by vampire hunters and even winds up confronting a supernatural enemy for the second time.

The panels of Bettie drinking blood from a stream of it on page four are drawn really well and has a real sense of movement as Bettie cups her hands to bring the blood to her mouth. I also liked the panel on page 10 where we see a surprised Bettie who has just come face to face with this universes version of Benway.

Overall

This comic continues to surprise, entertain and make me smile. Putting Bettie in a world where she is a vampire is a genius idea and I really loved her internal monologue where she is learning about the abilities she has while in this particular body.

I also liked the fact that David Avallone brought back Benway for this issue. He was a great villain from earlier issues and made for an entertaining one in this issue as well.

Overall. A really strong issue, which allows us to see Bettie as a Vampire for the first and hopefully not the last time.
