Dracula: The Company Of Monsters from Kurt Busiek

Posted on May 27, 2010 by


This August, BOOM! Studios is bringing us a new ongoing horror comic with a creative team sure to wet your fangs. Kurt Busiek, and award-winning writer Daryl Gregory (Pandemonium) team up with sensational artist Scott Godlewski (Codebreakers), to show us a place where you aren’t sure who’s the bad guy.

“Dracula’s a character who’s always fascinated me,” says series creator Kurt Busiek, “and getting a chance to build something firmly rooted in Dracula’s real-world (and Stoker-novel) history, but with a very modern edge, is the kind of creative challenge I love. It’s the world’s greatest vampire against the corporate world — and there’s no easy way to tell who’s the real villain, and who’s the hero. I’m thrilled to be working with Daryl, Scott and BOOM! on this. Putting it together feels like the early days of working on Conan, and I think the results are going to be a real treat for readers.”

When a major corporation thinks they have discovered an asset in Dracula you will soon find a very modern twist to the Dracula myth you thought you knew.

“The collective raw storytelling talent between Kurt and Daryl is boundless,” said BOOM! Studios Managing Editor Matt Gagnon. “Readers should be prepared for a cracking horror story that’s intense, arresting, and explores the nuances between good and evil. Dracula is back from the dead, and in very good hands!”

Definitely keep your eyes open for it coming in August. You can also find covers by such talents as Dan Brereton, and Ron Salas. You certainly don’t want to miss it!
