    If Vampironica keeps up the pace, it could end up being one of the most satisfying books of the year. Read Full Review

    The overall kooky story reminds me of Buffy or Evil Dead. This is a fantastic addition to Archie Comics' horror line and if you have not already I highly recommend picking up from issue 1. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nathan Koffler Sep 5, 2018

    It is a relief that I feel like we are finally getting the Vampironica that I wanted so badly before the series came out. It may have taken two issues of what was disappointing to me personally, but here we are, a great new addition to the Archie Horror comics line. This issue has both everything that I want from a vampire comic and an Archie comic: enjoyable characters, terrifying monsters, relatable situations, a dash of humor, and amazing tropey one-liners.

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Sep 8, 2018

    Usually, a delay in a series hurts the story, but it did not affectVampironica #3 that much. It seems the delay issues might be solved, as we have change-up in artists coming for issue #4. The dynamic between Veronica and Dilton continues to be a surprisingly wonderful highlight of the series. The development of vampire-Veronica is also tons of fun. Greg and Megan Smallwood have hit a nice tone in Vampironica,a serious yet “campy” feel that makes it a great read. As always, Greg Smallwood's art is stellar and a joy to look at. His art helps the story flow tremendously well. It will be interesting to see if the change-up in artists affects the series going forward. For now, do yourself a favor and pick up Vampironica!

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 6, 2018

    There's a lot to like with Vampironica and reading the first three issues together definitely pulls it all together well. Greg and Megan Smallwood are definitely capturing the right tone with what they're doing here as I love all the detail in the backgrounds while also simply loving the character designs aspects of it. Simply put, everything's coming together beautifully and it's just a whole heck of a lot of fun. I just wish it was actually coming out monthly. That's the only downside to this book and it seems baked into too many Archie properties for my taste. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Sep 5, 2018

    Vampironica #3 took some time to get around to, but four months didn't change what is so awesome about the world of Archie's take on vampires. They do not pull punches with the horror, the terror, or exactly what makes the introduction of vampirism in any form, a cause for alarm. Read Full Review

    The Riverdale gang in different horror roles is as entertaining as it is original. This is a title you need to dig up at your local comic shop. Read Full Review

    I won't lie, I dig the series. Similarly to DC's Gotham Academy, it manages to combine lighthearted, youthful energy, with darker undertones and more serious story, which combined make the run enjoyable to basically any audiences. Sure, it can be cheesy and most definitely shouldn't be taken too seriously, but that's what I find charmful about these books. Even as a devoted horror connaisseur, who could be considered a purist of sorts, I'm sold. Especially now, when the cast of main characters actively involved in the story expanded by 100%.
