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, even with only two issues released, drawn praises and rave reviews from everyone.
