The previous volume of Vampirella really started off well, in my opinion. I liked it and felt like it did a lot of things right. It took the character back to her thematic roots. When I saw a new volume starting and saw all of the various variant covers, I became skeptical. I didn't see the Free Comic Book Day issue, so I have nothing else to go on. However, Dynamite earned a measure of consideration with that last series. I'll give it a shot.
We decided this year not to go with fake stories, but instead cover some of the more odd things that have occurred in comics and toys, in this case, Assistant Editors Month 1984. Hopefully we can explore the concept of comic book history later when time allows. For right now, let's limit ourselves to looking at the month that Marvel Comics went a little off the rails. For our toy coverage go here.
