Review: Kiss/Vampirella #5 Finale

“All you are is a cover band. Check out what a headliner looks like.” – Vampirella

This issue opens with a bang as Vampirella is in battle with a rock star wannabe who calls her a monster. She assures him that she’s one of the good guys, but he ain’t listening. What fools these mortals be? The hillbilly realizes that he’s got to choose between right and wrong. The redneck reasons that Vampi is a good guy and they go all the way to a Kiss concert. It’s a battle for the soul of rock and roll that our hero’s must win!

The Creative Team:

Sebela continues to rock on as his take on the music industry in the mid-‘70’s is spot on and with nothing to lose the fictional rock band meshes well with the real rock band with a chemistry that might seem like strange ways to some readers but to those who enjoyed both Warren publications and great rock and roll over the ‘70’s it’s a must have issue that has us coming home again. The action heats up as we learn the plans of the thinkers behind the rock and roll traitors. I’m really enjoying this series and it gets better with each issue. Let me go, rock and roll!

Annapaola Martello continues to churn out great stuff in the art department. There’s an awesome scene where Witchkraft is battling demons and they realize that the best way to soothe the savage beast is with the charm of music. (yes, I know this is a paraphrase of a mis-quoted William Congreve saying.) The art creatively splinters into the band playing their instruments. And the feel for raw rock and roll shines forth in the pages to follow. I loved it!

In Conclusion:

This story concludes not with a huge battle scene but with our heroes doing the only logical thing to combat anti-rock forces. I’m not going to give away too much about how the story concludes, suffice to say that I love it loud, want to hear it loud right between the eyes. Loud, I want to hear it loud Don’t want no compromise. **** (8.8 rating.)
