    Un Cómic Más

    This story arc closes in style with dialogues made for geeks with a lot of respect and humor.

    Kewer manages to highlight Elvira’s sensuality in each of her panels, as well as her mischief, and in the same way recreates it with hypnotizing accuracy. The sequences in this installment are epic battles that pay tribute to Crisis of Infinite Earths and Secret Invasion.

    SciFiPulse

    David Avallone delivers a knockout punch of fun with an issue that goes a little meta with Elvira telling him how to write the story by insisting that there should be no flashbacks. Add to that the two parody versions of Marvel and DC’s iconic Superhero teams and you are in for one hell of a fun finale.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: Avallone brings this story to an action packed, hilarious conclusion filled with great action and adventure. I love the humor of this series and how the references work perfectly as narrative device and satire. Elvira continues to be a fantastic and fun character and everything that Avallone does with her in this series is awesome. I also love the self-insert he delivers in the story and how it skewers a common and often annoying trope in modern media. A fantastically fun, inventive and engaging story from start to finish.

    The Art: Baal delivers some beautiful art throughout the issue. Not only are the visuals fun and beautifully detailed, but they deliver some genuinely funny visual gags that made me laugh out loud.

    You Don't Read Comics

    Elvira seems to have made a very successful leap from her long-running 1990s indie comics series to a very steady contemporary run with Dynamite Comics. Having survived another series, Elvira will take on the xenophobic mind of a twisted little racist guy who just happened to write some very phenomenal and hugely influential horror as Elvira meets H.P. Lovecraft. The current page-and-panel adventures of Elvira continue to feel like a natural progression for the Mistress of the Dark as she continues a longstanding relationship with the comics page.

    Comical Opinions

    ELVIRA IN MONSTERLAND #5 ends the monstrously fun adventure with a flashback, heroes to the rescue, and a battle to end all battles. Avallone’s pop culture magnum opus is a monster movie fans dream, and Kewber Baal’s art is fantastic.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Elvira in Monsterland #5 ends the miniseries with action and a LOT of meta jokes, serving as a parody of the huge blockbuster superhero films of Disney and Warner Brothers. This issue didn’t have me laughing out loud like the previous issues have, but it’s still a fun ride and sets up things nicely for the next miniseries.
