Comic Cover Of The Week: The Shape Of Elvira #1


Warning: Astonishing Alliteration and Ironic Innuendo Ahoy…

“It’s raining Elvira’s, hallelujah, it’s raining Elvira’s…” Ah, okay, it isn’t actually raining Elvira (unfortunately!) but this is literally the second Comic Cover Of The Week in a row dedicated to our ferociously favourite, tenaciously teasing tantalising temptress – Elvira: Mistress Of The Dark!

That’s right fellow fans of fantastic fiction, Cassandra Peterson’s awesome alter ego – voluptuous vamp Elvira is back in a brand new mini-series brought to by the dynamically detonating – Dynamite Comics! with this brand spanking new series (as you may have surmised from the title) poking (good-natured) fun at Guillermo Del Toro’s recent hit movie – The Shape Of Water.


“The Mistress Of The Dark lands the leading role in a touching art film about human/gill monster romance (!?) but there’s something decidedly fishy about her co-star. Is there an Oscar in her future, or is the director Billy Bullworth interested in spawning something more than an Academy Award winning movie?”

Competing compellingly with Elvira’s previous mini-series, the saucy and spooky Shape Of Elvira also boasts a cavalcade compendium of cleavage clad comic-book covers that reaches a combustible crescendo with no less than eight extraordinary variant covers!!


The first issue of Elvira’s newest astonishing adventure is available at your local comic-book emporium right now! If you’re a fan of Cassandra Peterson’s raunchy, racy, ribald and generally risque alter-ego then dive right on in, and tell her Precinct1313 sent you (oh, and could you get her phone number for me whilst you’re there!?)

  3. I have some good news for you, as it seems you can’t get enough Elvira. This miniseries is a stand-alone four part story… BUT the Elvira: Mistress of the Dark series continues as well! TWO count them TWO, one might say a pair, of Elvira series. And Dynamite just asked me to write a solicit for issue 10, so I think you’ve got new Elvira coming your way for at least five more months…

    • Hi there! thanks so much for visiting the Precinct and reading my Elvira review, I am honoured Sir. 🙂 And yes fantastic news indeed, love me some Elvira, so more is always welcome. Your first issue was fantastic, looking forward to next months with much anticipation!


  4. Lovely post. Ahh, so hard to choose a favourite cover from the ones you highlighted, as they’re all so good. I think the bath tub and tentacle one wins it for me.
