Fun series!

Elvira: Mistress Of The Dark #1 - David Avallone

I got the first three issues in a Humble Bundle, and so far this has been fun!   Elvira's coffin turns into a time travel machine and she visits horror authors throughout time.  But it's all not just fun-time shennanigans in the past: she's also being stalked by someone determined to have her. 

 

Mary Shelley is up first, and the culture shock of present-meets-past is done in a tongue-in-cheek style, pairing up with a little meta of having Elvira speak directly to the audience, aware she's in a comic. 

 

It's clever, and all the more fun for not taking itself seriously at all.   It doesn't pretend to be anything but an Eivira comic: it's B-grade entertainment, aware of it, and in fact it revels in its status.  Then again, it would come off as stiff, or even petty, if it wasn't - or worse yet tried to act as if it were more than it were. 

 

I'd definitely suggest this for a horror fan, although it's equal parts comedy and not all that violent or gory for those who want that in their horror.   (I do, sometimes.   And sometimes I'm not in a horror mood at all.   And I can certainly appreciate lighter horror, both in violent/gore content or in tone, so I do have a range that I enjoy.)
