Bram Stoker's Dracula is meticulously and faithfully transferred to the medium of comic books by the storytelling team of Leah Moore and John Reppion, with stunning, painted artwork by Colton Worley and detailed lettering by Simon Bowland, published by Dynamite Entertainment. The result is a gorgeous adaptation and presentation of the original novel: lush, textured brushstrokes; startling transition from the dark, dreary, somber hues of Transylvania through the stark contrasts of a frightful sea voyage to the vivid hues of the daylight Victorian-era English countryside. Bram Stoker wrote his novel as a collection of excerpts from personal diaries, journals, telegraph messages and letters, written by different characters, revealing the story from these characters' viewpoints. portrays these changes in narrative voice by showing these messages neatly typed on telegraph paper with varying typefaces, or handwritten in letters or personal diaries, by different hands. Such approach and attention to detail have drawn praises and rave reviews from everyone: “The only adaptation of Dracula you’ll ever need,” praised comics author Warren Ellis (). “This is the new gold standard.” “The forefather of all gothic horror, Dracula, faithfully reassembled to its original state by a talented and exceptional creative team is a wonderful gift to the reading public,” said artist Jae Lee (). “Putting Stoker’s masterpiece back together for this new generation is like peeling away a magnificent piece of art to discover the artist’s true vision buried beneath.” “A tremendous exercise in authenticity and precision that stretches to the proper organisation of keys on an antique typewriter keyboard,” said writer Paul Cornell (). “Atmospheric, chilly and excellent, with an art style and a clarity of adaptation that really suits the subject matter. This is the definitive expanded version of the tale.” “I’ve taken a look at this, and think it’s terrific,” raved author Kim Newman (). “I’ve got a bunch of comics in my collection of editions and adaptations of Dracula, and I suspect this will be the best to date.” “If Moore, Reppion and team maintain their commitment to the level of detail on display in Dracula #1, they’re bound to deliver the definitive adaptation of Stoker’s magnum opus by the series’ end!” said writer Brian J. Showers (). “An invigorating new look at a hoary old chestnut!” “A superb work of art, combining fidelity to the original text with visuals that evoke the primal fears lurking in the novel.” Elizabeth Miller ( and co-author of ) “A meticulous graphic adaptation of Stoker’s classic text, with powerful images that take the original tale to new heights of horror!” Leslie S.
