I’m an author and reader, who just can’t get away from books. I discovered the MM genre a few years ago and became addicted.

The Curse Of Dracula

The Curse Of Dracula - Marv Wolfman, Gene Colan I'll be upfront - this wasn't my cup of tea. For me, it was a little more "horror" Dracula than I'd anticipated and, also, surprisingly less about Dracula than I would have liked.
I didn't know anything about this comic before starting it - someone gave it to me, because it was Dracula related, so I can't blame the book/blurb/cover for any misrepresentation. I just didn't bother to look it up before reading.

However, despite not really being my cup of tea - the illustrations were stunning but felt dated, and the text was difficult to read, I had to zoom in multiple times just to see what was being said, and I didn't feel like there was a complete story-arc throughout - I think fans of retro, horror comics would love it. It had that feel to it. Personally, I didn't get the answers I wanted - such as how the first character we see (I forgot his name!) is got involved, why everyone trusted him so easily, and how he knew that Dracula hadn't been killed by the Van Helsing ancestors, and why he never did anything about it before now. I have a lot of unanswered questions, but I'm sorry to say I won't be looking for anything more related to this comic in hopes of finding them.
