Serious historical research and sound principals on critic on sources and accounts, is in my opinion missing in this book, which could have made a good contribution to the subject, but instead turns out as something close to mere speculations about Vlad the myth and the historical Vlad added ad hock deviations from the subjects being studied sometimes interesting but never relay relevant.
I am so not into graphic novels, but this book was very informative and I'm glad I checked it out at a friend's advice. I am very unlikely to read something of this sort without a recommendation. This book was historically interesting even though it was about a pretty awful person.

Vlad Dracule does not mean "son of the devil" it means "son of he who has the order of the dragon" so the very description itself gives away the fact that this work is not based on legitimate history.
Titties and gore. Terrible, sometimes nonsensical art. A heaping helping of misogyny and homophobia. Avoid.
