Welcome to Stoker, Maine, the most normal, boring town in the world. Or is it? There are sea serpents roaming the docks, a mummy in the town hall. And a gaggle of ghouls and goblins just devoured the breakfast cereal aisle at the local Shop-O-Mart. Who is behind this monstrous rampage? And can it be stopped? When there are spooks afoot and arcane mysteries to be solved, it's time for Vampirella-teen scourge of the supernatural-to crack the case! And if that isn't enough, each Li'l book comes with a two-page activity sheet and a "Pantha" comic strip by Brandon and Orion Jerwa and Agnes Garbowska!

    You have to respect a publisher's attempt to make a comic accessible to all age of readers, even more so when it's a really great story. Li'L Vampi delivers on all fronts. If you've been enjoying a lot of the more off-kilter all-ages comics out there lately, this is definitely one you need to pick up. Read Full Review

    LI'L VAMPI is a ton of fun. Sure, there's some folks out there who don't like the "li'l-cizing" of their favorite characters, but those folks just don't know how to have a good time. Dynamite has something special here, and this is something I'd love to see as a mini-series or on-going, as long as Agnes Garbowski is attached. Pick this up for yourself of you kid, they'll have a ton of fun with it. Overall, I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    Strong work from all parties is unfortunately undermined by bad layout decisions which prevent each of the stories from performing at their highest level. Still, I'd happily ingest more "Li'l Vampi," especially with cartoonist Garbowska at the helm. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - David McIntyre Jan 8, 2014

    Naturally Vampirella has received a massive overhaul to her costume in the transition to all-ages material, covering up her modesty to a level that is palatable given the context but it's the fact that this is necessary that really speaks to the crux of the problem with this book. While it's clear that all involved have done their best to create a solid kid-friendly comicbook it struggles to get out from under the hyper-sexed blood-soaked shadow of it's source material, leaving it's only place as that of a quirky what-if issue for fans of the main series. Perhaps you won't have as much of a problem with this one-shot as I did and more power to you if you didn't but unfortunately I can't find it within me to give this book a higher score than I did.
