Graphic Novel Review: The Accursed Vampire #2: The Curse at Witch Camp
Is it summer yet? It’s been really mild in KC and I’d rather just get this whole heat thing out of the way (I’m not a fan of summer). Admittedly, I’m a little antsy because my living situation is going to be a bit complicated for the next few months before things straighten out.
Hopefully you’re summer is filled with lots of fun plans and no moving!
All that being said, it’s book review time! Today I’m continuing my binge of The Accursed Vampire series with The Accursed Vampire #2: The Curse at Witch Camp by Madeline McGrane.
I loved the first book and I just had to have the next one. The theme for this one is perfect! Summer wouldn’t be complete without some camping, even if it’s just imaginary.
So how was this book compared to the first one? Let’s find out!

In the sequel to middle grade graphic novel The Accursed Vampire, Drago and their vampire buds head to Witch Camp for a summer of spells and magic…but what they find is far more sinister!
It’s summertime and Drago, Eztli, and Quintus are heading to witch camp, where they’ll learn spells and magic alongside human kids.
Drago is skeptical about this joint venture with the living, but as long as their vampire pals are with them, how bad could it be?
Pretty bad, actually. Eztli and Quintus end up making friends with the campers while Drago stumbles onto an abandoned mini golf course housing a sinister supernatural entity with intentions of overtaking the camp.
Drago may not like camp, but they can’t leave their buds in danger. What will they do?

This sequel was a bunch of middle grade fun!
In this adventure, Eztli, Quintus, and Drago go to witch camp for a summer full of magic and spells. As Eztli and Quin make friends with ease, an insecure Drago finds his own in questionable places. It isn’t long before magical mayhem strikes again and the three friends must rush to save the day and their friendship.
This book may not have been as good as the first, but it was still really entertaining and funny.
The novel was a great mix of magic, macabre, and hilarity as our characters explore this new environment. The funny faces characters make still make me laugh in spots, and everything has a really nice light feel to it. The art really reminds me of The Regular Show. It’s not the most beautiful, but it’s consistent and cute.
Our characters were wonderful like last time, although I’m not sure how much they actually grew throughout this adventure. The story seems more like mass randomness, which is great fun, but I had trouble finding some kind of moral that younger readers might pull from this. Also, I felt the plot was pretty predictable at a certain point.
Still, I think youngsters will find this graphic novel to be a ton of fun and it’s super easy to read, so what’s not to like? I hope there’ll be more books in the future. I’d love to keep reading!
That’s A Wrap!
Well that’s it for this book review. I hope you enjoyed it!
