I had this on my shelf waiting to be read, so I figured Halloween was a great time to read it. This is a fantastic adaptation of the novel, and does the original work great justice. The art (Giordano) perfectly captures the mood and lends a "period" feel to the whole thing. The HC version is bound nicely, but there is some gutter loss which is a bit frustrating. If you've read the novel this is worth a read especially for the art. I always like to start with the original work before venturing on...more
Borders was closing and this is one of the graphic novels I picked up for 80% off - I am a huge fan of the original novel and was curious. It is very faithful to the novel and the graphics make it even MORE creepy, if that is possible. I also find it very satisfying that Dracula could rip out Edward Cullen's throat and eat him for breakfast. How come there isn't a graphic novel about that? I'd buy that at full price.
In 1897, Draculawas first published by Bram Stoker. In 1975, comic book legends Dick Giordano and Roy Thomas began working on a comic book adaptation of Dracula for Marvel Comics. Unfortunately, the project was cancelled. Thirty years later, the two reunited to complete the book. Here is Stoker’s Dracula, a beautiful, hardcover graphic novel. Thomas and Giordano set out to create “..the most faithful adaptation ever.” Is it one-hundred percent faithful? Now, I am a huge fan of the original vampi...more

I bought this book in Borders, during its going-out-of-business clearance sale. I am very sad to see Borders go, as it was more then a bookstore to me. It was a social hub, a place of high school memories, and a great escape from the craziness of home. But alas...nothing I can do.

I've read Bram Stoker's Dracula many times. Who hasn't? I'm sure everyone has seen one of the many Dracula movies made in the last century. And with vampires being incredibly popular nowadays, I figured what else can th...more

This is a faithfully creepy adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic tale of vampires that excels both in the text and the illustrations. The dialog and narration are fluid, and in graphic novel format the number of different narrators (Jonathan Harker's diary, Mina Murray's letters, Dr. Seward's phonograph recordings, et al.) stand out as different voices. The artwork is bold yet still nuanced, and it manages to maintain detail even in predominantly dark frames.

If I have one complaint, it's that the...more

Much more scarier than reading the Bram Stoker novel as one could see the red eyes, the fangs, the blood... Reminded me of how much I loved Dracula.
what a cool graphic adaptation of the beloved Brand stokers Dracula. it was very good and I flew threw this. the art work was amazing.
Cool art and very true to the original story.
Quite good - it moves briskly, as an adaptation should, and the compressed nature requires excising quite a lot of the frustrating bits present in the original (much of Van Helsing's speeches, for instance). The black and white artwork from comics legend Dick Giordano is creepy, alluring and effective. The original is worth reading but eventually outstays its welcome; fortunately, that problem isn't found here.

I have read the regular version of Dracula many times. I enjoyed reading this graphic version which added moody, atmospheric renderings of the action in the book.
