    Looking at it as a niche comic for a limited target audience, it is highly effective. Read Full Review

    If you like out there stories where the sky is the limit on imagination, pick up The Adventures of Luna the Vampire. While this series may not appeal to everyone, its a great addition to the sea of issues coming out today. Its a break from the traditional serial format of comics and makes for a great break or lunchtime read. This series could also be great for kids. Even with witches, zombies, and vampires, nothing is too over the top or graphic and kids may get a kick out of the strange plots and characters. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Jan 12, 2016

    Luna the Vampire #1 is a humorous adventure chronicling some of Luna's everyday activities while also providing a clear, cultural critique of how Luna and her friends react to certain situations in addition to how her friends interact with her. The artwork is a tad too cartoony for my taste, but serves the humor and tone of the book. Yasmin Sheikh did a great job of exaggerating facial features to convey emotion as well as foreshadowing her punch lines. It was good. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steven Phillips Jan 13, 2016

    Skipping breathlessly from panel to panel, The Adventures of Luna the Vampire #1 is almost a trifle, but an enjoyably goofy one. Nothing about it will stick with you for much longer than it takes to finish reading. Read Full Review

    Sometimes it's nice to pick a book and have a little giggle, even if it's meant for younger readers, what's the harm of feeling childish every now and then. This is fun and well worth a look, if you have a little monster of your own that enjoys comics then this would be great a shared reading activity for you both. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Jan 12, 2016

    Dont get me wrong though, this isnt a bad comic, and what Sheikh does she does very well, with bright, lively colours and eye-catching characters; its just that there are a lot of other similar all-ages titles out there that are either sharper written or better illustrated (or both), and while Luna isnt without her occasional moments of charm, there just doesnt seem to be enough of a hook here totruly reel readers in.

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Jan 18, 2016

    At the risk of coming off as a bit of a Grinch, The Adventures of Luna the Vampire takes a lot of work to love. The nonsensical stories and the simple conclusions will alienate large chunks of the audience, and the very specific form will mean that it will only appeal to a small section of the rest. Then again, the Grinch came around in the end, and maybe Luna the Vampire just needs to give us more to sink our teeth into. Read Full Review
