Prophecy preview looks GREAT with Sherlock Holmes and Vampirella
Sherlock Holmes, Red Sonja and Vampirella! This is going to be Comic Book Heaven.
I hope they add in The Lone Ranger, Zorro and Tarzan. This is what I want to read.
Issue 1 was very very good. I hope they have a scene of Sherlock Holmes meeting Vampirella.
To be fair, any moron who would, against all odds, really manage to botch a story with that many established characters would deserve to be tarred, feathered and thrown out of comic society
I hope the xover is at least half as good as "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen". But you're obviously right, the potential lies in the interaction. If Ye Great Shokoshu would have been called to script a meeting between Vampi and Sherlock, he would have scripted it probably as follows:
Sherlock: "Oh my god! You are a vampiress!"
Vampi: "Elementary, my dear Sherlock. Did you observe the little blood traces at my eyeteeth?"
Sherlock: "That too, but the dead giveaway was a crimson excuse of a clothing that only a creature from hell would dare to wear in public!"
Watson: Look Holmes...a whore!
Holmes: Watson, you judge too quickly, her bearing suggests otherwise but we must be on guard.
