Part of Zenescope's Grimm Universe, Van Helsing's daughter heads back into action when Dracula's bones are stolen by his daughter. It's a solid update to the story. I liked the added touch of the Dr. Jekyll's sidekick as well. Because it's Zenescope, the costumes are pretty skimpy for modern comic books, but the story is solid.

Received a review copy from Zenescope and Edelweiss.

This is a six-individual comic issues of Van Helsing vs. Dracula's Daughter. I didn't read Van Helsing before, so think I had missed some information about Liesel and her allies and enemies.
Liesel Van Helsing is a vampire hunter, fights vampires and other monsters. A story of women in tight clothes, with lots of blood and dead bodies.

Thanks to Netgalley, I have given an honest review of Van Helsing vs. Dracula's Daughter by Raven Gregory.

*3.5/5

In this dark, mysterious and action packed story, we follow Liesel Van Helsing, the daughter of the famous vampire hunter, who now faces her nemesis's daughter, Charlotte, the daughter of Count Dracula. She has come to steal her father's skeleton, so that she can bring him back from the dead.

Normally, I would go into the plot, describing the whole story, but most people don't like spoilers, so I think I will move on to my thoughts.

This was my first time reading something with these charact

This was a very intriguing take on the timeless Dracula vs Van Helsing story. I haven’t read any other comics in this universe but I enjoyed the premise.

The art style reminds me of the action cartoon shows I would watch when I was younger, like Gargoyles! I think the lore is well done in this comic world. The reveal of a hulking Frankenstein’s Monster at the end as well as Dr. Julie Jekyll/Hyde was a nice tidbit. I am intrigued by the relationships between different characters, including the ba

This comic book imagines the daughter of the Van Helsing character (from Bram Stoker’s) pitted against the daughter of Dracula in what appears to be more-or-less the present day. It is action-packed, if juvenile and prone to rely on hackneyed dialogue and story points. To clarify, it’s a small team of scantily clad supermodel vampire hunters taking on a scantily clad supermodel Vampiress and her army of expendables. I liked it in the way that one likes movies that one picked on Netflix while men ...more

Before I begin this review I need to address something. Going into this book I did not know it was a part of a lager series. I thought it was either the first volume of a story or a standalone, however as I was reading I noticed that there were things that weren't fully explained and some things referenced other stories in this world. I did appreciate that the book included asterisks when referencing another work and told the reader where to find it, though I'm not sure if that will be included ...more

I am picking up a comic after a long while and this 5-issue comics reminded me of how much I loved reading them. The comics features Liesel Van Helsing, whose father had a complicated relationship with Dracula, to say the least. In the present time, something sinister is stalking Van Helsing and is taking out her friends one by one. Someone will go to great lengths to get her revenge.
I love vampire stories and this one is a wonderful take on the classic story. Even though there are a lot of back

We are introduced to Liesel Van Helsing as she is continuing her fight against the many denizens of the night that insist of doing evil and harming mankind. With her steampunk attire, and collection of silver stakes and bullets, she is a formidable foe for many a creature. Somebody steals Dracula’s corpse (who was defeated in a previous volume) and its up to Van Helsing to figure out what’s happening. I enjoyed the simple plot set-up and great action scenes in the book. The author has taken char ...more

A mysterious book with colourful art - How else would you want to see Van Helloing and Dracula's Daughter portrayed?

I will say, this book is beautiful for it's colouring. That really drew me in and kept my attention. I could have done without the super skimpy (air quote "sexy") outfits, but I guess I'm not the audience? The action and storyline would have been enough without overly sexualizing the main leads to get a few more gazes from certain individuals. It seems dumb and unrealistic to have

What caught me eye about the book from the very beginning was the artwork throughout. It was spooky, had graphic violence and an interesting progression of plot. This story starts off with Liesel Van Helsing tracking down the bones of Dracula because someone has stolen them. Her main goal was to kill the person that stole it so that the bones would not be used for evil.

I would first like to point out that although I haven’t read anything from this series other than this, I really enjoyed the exp

Alright, I've got that out of my system, it's in for the teen (boy) age range, so I understand why the costumes are more ass than armour, and with that, I'm going to say nothing else on the nature of the artwork.

Story itself is an interesting reimagining of Dracula being brought back and the conflicts between the daughters of Van Helsing and Dracula, there's a lot of shooting, posing, and inventive weaponry, which I don't doubt will appeal it to the age range it's aimed

Ok, normally I do a long and short version, but this one doesn’t really deserve it. The title just wasn’t very good.

I really struggled to get into it, primarily because of the over sexualized characters. I get it, comics like to put forth hot women wearing tight outfits, but this one goes way too far. Leisel van Helsing literally fights vampires, why on earth would she have SO MUCH exposed skin? Sure, she’s a great vampire hunter, but it’s not even believable, and btw that steam punk hat is awfu

This was a happy surprise. I am always up for any retellings or reimaginings in regards to Dracula and Van Helsing. One thing Comics get so little credit for is their ability to weave illustrations to elevate the story. I had my hand over my mouth several times reading this. I do want to go back and see the backlists for some of the illustrators and writers. While I do love the art and illustrations, I will complain until the end of time that you can have PRACTICAL and SEXY costumes on your c

I read an ARC obtained from NetGalley.

Overall I enjoyed this story. Loved the artwork, as a cosplayer I was immediately obsessed with Van Helsing & Dracula’s daughter’s looks. I am curious where this story is going. This book definitely felt like a lot of set up. I don’t know if it’s a me issue or story issue, but there were a couple instances of “wait how did we get here all of a sudden?”. You could tell where the individual comic issues ended and the next started and i don’t mean because of t

Van Helsing vs Dracula’s Daughter has amazing artwork and a storyline with enough twists to keep you entertained. While I enjoyed the unique additions to the Dracula/Van Helsing story, there were times I felt like I was missing something. I hadn’t read the other comics in this universe, so if you’re trying to read this as a stand-alone, be advised there are bits and pieces that are further explained elsewhere. All in all, it was a great graphic novel and I definitely want to read more.

Thank you

I just completed Van Helsing vs Dracula’s Daughter by Raven Gregory. This was provided as an ARC to me from NetGalley. I don’t read a lot graphic novels but this is an entertaining series. It a series about the daughter of the legendary vampire hunter/slayer Van Helsing. Liesl is a kick ass vamp hunter in her own right and smart and fearless. The graphics are stunning. Just a really fun read. I gave this 3 stars.

The latest review-proof comic from this universe. It's got boobs, it's got monster-bashing, it's got gubber all to do with the original stories any more, and it's got the daughter of Van Helsing battling to best the daughter of Dracula. Fans will be buying it whatever any critic on earth says; occasional visitors will scoff at the more unlikely bits, and roll their eyes at the open ending and the promise of so much more to come. ...more

The artwork is really nice and I liked the story. I haven't read any other comics with Liesel Van Helsing, so I wasn't sure what to expect. It's a page turner that I couldn't put it down. This feels like a complete arc as far as comics go, but I hope that there will be more so I can find out where this leads. ...more

Given that I've never read comic books before, this was a fun, quick read. I've also never read anything in this comic series before but I have read Dracula so I know the characters.

Thank you, NetGalley and Diamond Book Distributors, for providing me with an eARC in exchange for my honest opinion.

A mediocre story of oversexualized women in tight clothes and their breasts were gigantic. A story that did not add anything new but had already been seen in hundreds of variations before.

My gay self was lured into this book by the prospect of Steampunk(ish) vampire hunter, and I leaped after reading in the publisher notes was the potential of a Video Game (though the timing given has passed) as well as a TV show. The latter I failed to find any information on even after spending a fair bit of time digging.
For me, when I see multi-media storytelling, I get excited, even though I know to expect disappointment.

I found this comic interesting in concept; this is most definitely somet

Written by Raven Gregory and Artwork by Allan Otero. I did not read the previous Van Helsing story, but I do not believe it was necessary to enjoy this story. The artwork was amazing and clearly portrayed the needed information beautifully. Gregory's writing was clear and flowed well. However, I do believe the story needed more to it. I felt the story passed too quickly and didn't hit the right beats. If I had read this as single issues, I would have been severely disappointed. ...more

I loved it so much. I am a huge vampire lover. When you read this is the story of Van Helsing’s daughter and her friend Julie. Helsing is out to find and kill the daughter of Dracula the man that took her mother from her when she was very young. With me it’s hard to give a good review cause I want to gush and spoil the heck out of the book I read. So I leave you with this. If you want a good book that’s full of vampire, fighting, demons, etc you need to read this book.
