Ever wondered how it would be if outer space was populated by monsters? LOOK NO FURTHER! As this is the AMAZING everyday life of Luna the Vampire. Jam packed with awesome adventures, crazy faces, zombie postmen, AND SPACE. By the power of the giant floating god heads, don’t miss out!

Sometimes I don’t feel like reading a book, so I read a comic instead! This time my choice fell upon Luna the Vampire, which seems to have a quirky artstyle. Upon opening the book I already figured out I was right: Every page was filled with the quirky artstyle that had tempted me to buy this comic!

The story is quite simple: You follow Luna the Vampire in her silly adventures. The humor is more on the adult side, which I quite like! I was fully prepared to have a more child-like comic, but it turned out to be quite te opposite.

The story and the characters are all over the place. You’re basically reading about vampires, zombies and any other type of creature… But then in space! The comic is very cute and simply vĂ©ry weird! I can imagine it not being everyone’s cup of tea. But it certainly was right up my alley! It somehow reminded me a bit of invader zim and I wouldn’t be surprised if Yasmin got some inspiration out of that cartoon.

The stories were short but amusing. There wasn’t much character development for the characters, which I’m a sucker for. I really missed a little bit more depth in the stories. But it was an easy, fun and light read!

It might not be for everybody, but I really enjoyed it.
