Pantha is held captive in the clutches of Blackwood Munition who aim to steal the powers of Sekhmet (Egyptian god of healing, destruction, and war) from Pantra in order to weaponize it for their own nefarious schemes.

Will Pantra awaken from the sedatives just in time to survive what the Blackwood Munition have in store for her? Ta-Nakht grows stronger in his power, will Pantha be able to stop his plans from coming to fruition? Who are the Mortalists and what role do they play in the events at play?

Tom Sniegoski and Jeannine Acheson kick off this issue with a ton of action immediately. The pacing of the story is fast and swift, moving at a rapid-fire pace that wastes no time providing story and action, and there is a ton of action that occurs throughout the book. What I appreciate about this book is that it’s a ton of show, don’t tell, allowing the reader to have the ability to see what’s occurring within the book without insulting the intelligence of the reader. The narration complements the art without being redundant, while also accompanying the visual work in tandem. What makes the story so enjoyable is how action-packed it is without dragging the story out to a point that it doesn’t propel the story forward, everything that occurs throughout the book drives the story forward, retaining interest for where the story goes next.

Igor Lima provides layouts that are action-packed and serviceable to the story. Adriano Augusto contributes colors to Lima’s linework, adding vibrance to the art and cinematic visuals that give the book the visual energy that’s worthwhile to read through. Dezi Sienty letters the book and brings the art and story together appropriately and as cohesive as possible. This is a fun, action-packed book that is packed to the brim with conflict and skirmishes from beginning to end. If you’re looking for more from the world of Vampirella, and if you’re a fan of Sacred Six, then this is worth checking out and adding to your pull list for new comic book day.
