Today’s Assignment: Vampirella

I had a very interesting experience reading the latest Vampirella story from Dynamite Entertainment today. I find the character very complicated, in that I appreciate the sensuality and sexuality of the character, but I also think she looks kind of ridiculous and is impossible to believe as a serious actor in her own world. She’s a tough nut to crack, as on the one hand, I enjoy the sensationalism and encourage women to feel empowered about their sexuality in general, but Vampirella’s sexiness seems so secondary to her power and character. . . I think there’s something fun and sexy, and even potentially awesome, in this character, but that it’s still off the mark somehow.  Anyway, here’s a link to my thoughts on Part I of She Sells Sanctuary
