Synopsis: Amunet reads The Spell of the Final Day, and Amun-Ra returns, bringing death and destruction with him! And everyone’s invited to watch on their favorite streaming service! Can they be stopped? Can the Mistress of the Dark save the world from a pair of ancient gods… armed only with a DVD of an unreleased horror movie from the seventies? Sure, it sounds crazy when you put it like that, but you won’t know just how crazy ‘til you read “Inglorious Bastet,” the thrilling conclusion of Elvira and Vincent Price’s first adventure together…
Picking up the story from the last issue. Amunet has blasted the spirit of Vincent Price into oblivion or has she? Having gotten hold of the Magical Book of the End of All Things. Amunet now plans to quote directly from the book in front of her audience so she can resurrect her husband. Armed only with a copy of an old movie that Vincent Price made back in the 70s. Elvira twigs that the reversal of the spell that Amunet plans to use is quoted in the movie. Armed with this knowledge Elvira races against time to broadcast a copy of ‘Rise of The Ram’. And she is able to broadcast it thanks to some help from the feline Goddess Bastet.
Juan Samuknocks out some brilliant art for this final issue. The sequence in which Bastet fights against Amunet and Amun Ra is brilliant fun. As is the reappearance of Vincent Price. Overall. The art in this book is fantastic and fun for the reader to look at while following the story. Both writer and artist work nicely together here.
Once again David Avallone proves to be a master of pulp storytelling as well as the double entendre. He captures Elvira’s personality brilliantly and pretty much every interaction that she has is brilliantly written. I also really enjoyed how well-written the banter was between Elvira and Vincent Price and would love to see this pairing return for more adventures.
Overall. Brilliant fun.
