After last issue's bloody ending, Chastity struggles to live! But, even if she survives, will she be human, vampire, or something else entirely?

The trail of terror leads to a cruise liner off the coast of Barcelona, but nothing makes sense to Sam and Paladin, who must take another step into the darkness around the mysterious and deadly group. But first, Sam will have to seek the help of a powerful friend—one of the only friends he still has. What started as a simple favor is quickly turning into a global battle for the operative who thought he was out of the game!

To the victors belong the spoils: thus has it always been for the savage nomads of the Dothraki. But when Daenerys finds that the spoils include helpless women, she intercedes— triggering angry dissension between Khal Drogo and his men. Drogo’s word is law . . . yet the strange ways of his Targaryen bride undercut his authority. Now wounded, Drogo is weaker still. Yet help comes from an unexpected quarter: among the rescued women, a healer steps forward, eager to repay her debt.

Best-Selling author Nancy Collins continues her epic run on Vampirella! After escaping the Witches Hammer--the Vatican's elite monster-killing squad, lead by Father Nicodemus--Vampirella's new-found ally, the Nosferatu known as Drago, reveals that the only way to lift the curse placed on her by Ethan Shroud that is slowly making her a living vessel for Umbra, Our Lady of Shadows and Bride of the Apocalypse, is for her to drink the blood of certain rare species of vampire. The first stop on their monster world tour is Thailand, where Vampirella must hunt down and kill a horrific creature known as the Krasue--which appears only at night as the head of a beautiful woman--attached to nothing but a heart, a pair of lungs and a mass of entrails!

As much a fan as I am of the big boobs, that second BloodQueen cover is just awful with the overly large boobs that goes from sexy to just honestly, gross. But maybe its not the size, but just the lousy artist.

As for boobs, why not just make a nude version of the comics? Chastity has several scenes were they could have nudity. Not that I am saying to put it in, just that I just hate the creative teams "teasing" nudity. I mean, she is naked, while the other two have clothing on. Either show or go. She could just as easily be wearing the outfit she is dieing in, or her traditional "costume."

Vampirra, again, so heavily sexual, might as well go all the way & show nudity. I mean, you can clearly see her nips when she is getting out of the car.

GOT, again, people who know the show, which I have not yet watched, would kind of expect nudity.

Although, I'd much rather the inside art be of better quality. Each one is kinda crappy. I mean, there is a reason I'd never buy any of these.

Chastity and Vampirella...regardless of the polarizing views will be on my pull list...

I dropped Chastity and Vampirella, but I am keeping Blood Queen. So far, the depiction of the main character has been pretty strong, without getting into heavy cheese-cake. Personally, I thought Vampirella had gotten just a bit better in terms of cheese cakeness as compared to the last issue but I've had to trim my comics list and her and Chastity and the whole Chaos line had to go. Maybe when things become less porny (and the money situation gets better), I might give them another chance.
