The Adventures of Luna the Vampire #1
Art and story by Yasmin Sheikh
Let’s judge this book by its cover… Fun art and great colours make up a rather amusing space scene. From the witch taking her snake for a space walk, to Luna herself squished inside a tiny coffin shaped spaceship, this cover let’s you know exactly what you’re in for inside.
Inside we get three short stories of Luna comprising of online shopping for a dress to her uncles Zombiefication, body shaming by her friend and buying a pet. Each tale is very short and have a couple of funny moments. It’s very child friendly and aimed more toward pre teen. The art is consistently with the cover and stays playful throughout. The zombie postman is the best part of the first story, let’s see more of him in future issues.
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.
For the fun factor and as it’s just the first issue I’ll give this one a strong 3 stars.
