IDW vants to suck your blood, or at least your wallet, this Fall. The publisher is bringing the comic book adaptation of the 1992 movie adaptation of the 1897 novel Dracula. Bram Stoker’s Dracula by Mike Mignola will be available in September, and also features writing by Roy Thomas (when will writers start getting proper credit in comics?! #wordcred).
“I cannot tell you what a relief it is to have this book back in print,” said artist Mike Mignola in a press release. “People have been asking about this one for ages—More than any other book of mine—and I honestly didn’t think it was ever going to be possible to see an edition, but here it is. Thank you Scott Dunbier and IDW. No idea how you did it but very glad you did. I’m generally not a fan of my older work (pretty huge understatement there) but I think this one holds up. Despite the fact that I was doing a movie adaptation (which has its own unique set of problems) I think there is some nice drawing and storytelling in here. One of the very few older jobs I’m still pretty proud of.”
The book was Mignola’s last work before launching Hellboy, so occupies an important place in history, and now the 136 black-and-white hardcover can occupy an important place on your bookshelf. You can pre-order it now using the ISBN 978-1684053155.
