Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!
Scientists are being discovered, ripped to shreds and with their trousers round their ankles.
Vampirella suspects Pantha and tracks her down to the Zoo. It turns out that Pantha was
a captive of the Danse Macabre and abused by the scientists there before she escaped, and
is now getting her revenge.
Vampirella and Pantha fight, and Vampirella convinces her to spare the last scientist.
However when Pantha and Vampirella leave, the scientist realises that he is still locked
in a cage with real panthers ...
I'm sure there must be some kind of love affair between Mark Texeira and Pantha. That is
the only thing that would explain the passion and heart that goes into every page of the
Stunning art - take it as read! Adult themes and story from Mark Millar make this a comic
book for those of a stout constitution.
Vampirella mentions that she and Pantha have met before in Gotham City - a reference to
the Vampirella/ Catwoman cross over - yet she and Pantha were
best buddies for many years in the Warren era. Perhaps their friendship was another false
memory imparted by the Cult of Chaos ...
TRIVIA: It is mentioned that Pantha is not a woman who turns into a cat, rather
she is an immortal cat that turns into a woman.
