Merry Christmas Lil' Vampi

Christmas has come to Stoker, Maine, and nobody is more excited than resident monster-fighter Li'l Vampi!

But when an evil curse steals Christmas from the minds of mankind, Vampi must team with a beast of holiday lore to save Santa Claus, defeat a pagan god bent on revenge, and save Christmas for boys and girls around the world!


Lil' Vampi is an absolutely adorable comic that's great for young children and those that are yound children at heart. The Holiday Edition is wonderful! I could see the whole family gathering around and reading it together year after year as they prepare for the holiday season. This is one of those comic books that could inspire young kids to love reading!

One of my favorite parts of the comic is how it slips in educational information without the reader knowing!

This issue of Lil' Vampi may be focused on Lil' Vampi saving Santa Claus and Christmas it also talks about the other solstice holidays that were celebrated before Christmas came to be. There is a little bit mentioned about Yule, the German Pagan festival that celebrates that Winter Solstice that was absorbed by the Christians into Christmas, but the main focus is put on Koliada! A holiday that is almost entirely unknown nowadays.

Koliada is the holiday that surrounds the winter season where Veles, god of the underworld, would send spirits into the world of the living. Festivals were held in his honor in winter as it was believed that chaos was stronger and the borders between the land of the living and the land of the dead were weaker.

This is Veles. Not the Lil' Vampi version though!
Lil Vampi is wonderful in the way that is sheds light on a holiday that is no longer in vogue or talked of much!

I definitely recommend this to any family out there looking for a new and interesting read this holiday season!

Rating: 4/5 Stars
