Elvira Mistress of the Dark Spring One-Shot

Story by Scott Bryan Wilson, Fernando Ruiz, and Dan Parent
Art by Fernando Ruiz and Dan Parent
Color by Valentina Pinto and Brittany Pezzillo
Letters by Taylor Esposito

Elvira is a unique “property” to work with. Because Elvia, the trademark, is synonymous with Elvia the character. Elvira, the character, is synonymous with Cassandra Peterson, the actress who created the persona as the host of Elvira’s Movie Macabre. In an era of recasts and reboots, there will never be another Elvira. She was the star, not Cassandra Peterson.

The Story: I must say I am not a Kiss fan so I wasn’t looking forward to reading this book, that being said the members of KISS aren’t actually in this issue except a quick appearance toward the end. The name”Kiss: The End” to me has a bit of unfortunate innuendo that I don’t think the creators were intending...
