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.

At the same time, Elvira has a long history in comics. But I’ve never had the chance to really read them until now. I opened this one-shot not being sure what to expect. I won’t lie when I say it took a bit to wrap my head around things...

Written by: Amy Chu

Art by: Edu Menna

Colors by: Jorge Sutil

Letters by: Troy Peteri

Synopsis:  What lies beyond our world? Is there a heaven? Is there a hell? When a young man finds himself on the wrong side of life, he encounters Death itself and is set on a quest to seek out his errant demon offspring in an attempt to make his way back to the world of the living! But there is much peril on the way and the only ones who can help him are KISS! – Comixology

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.

Peter Cannon Thunderbolt #1

WRITER: Kieron Gillen

ARTIST:  Caspar Wijngaard

COLORIST:  Mary Safro

LETTERER:  Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou

SYNOPSIS – His level of genius is matched only by his heroics, and in humanity’s darkest hour, he’s the hero they need the most—alas, poor humanity. Peter Cannon—the man known as Thunderbolt—is only too happy to leave civilization to face its end.

THE STORY: So this books starts out with a group of superheroes pleading with Thunderbolt to help with an alien invasion and the book ends in a classic comic book twist when finding out who is behind the invasion. The writing throughout, I found to be ok but there was no explanation of what exactly is going on and where this thunderbolt character is coming from...
