Two legends of the comic book industry bring to life the story of gore and lust that inspired Dracula.

Vlad the man had a devilish streak-a vicious temper, a passion for women, and a thirst for revenge.

Vlad the ruler was a true devil-a relentless torturer, a brutal murderer, and a paranoid leader whose megalomania would be his own undoing.

Responsible for the merciless deaths of thousands, this savage 15th century ruler earned himself the moniker Vlad the Impaler. His bloody reign struck terror into the hearts of his disciples and inspired generations of vampire myths-most famously Bram Stoker's ghoulish protagonist, Dracula. However that beloved bloodsucker doesn't hold a candle to the real-life fiend whose brutal treachery has made him immortal.

User Review  - T. Edmund - Goodreads

Some of the artwork is redeemable is this GRAPHIC novel, however the cheesy ridiculous narrative (see the epilogue) ruins the story and the lack of character depth makes one feel they are just looking at some doodles inspired by a boring historic summary Read full review
