Why not give the excellent Ramon Torrents a crack at delineating our vampiress? Esteban Maroto's VAMPI would, no doubt, be fabulous!

Jose Gonzalez managed to create this quality. So did Jose Ortiz and Gonzalo Mayo. Perhaps, sometime in the future, Zesar will also master this most difficult art. The script for "The Wonderworld of Ambergris, Kato and Tonto, Too!" shows that it is possible for our heroine to have adventures that are lighter in tone than usual, without descending into the sort of cheap "yuks" that charprevious acterized some scripts.
And, as of this episode, the series seems to be moving forward to what? Some.
