BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA COMIC ADAPTATION BY MIKE MIGNOLA RETURNS TO PRINT
See if you can follow this one with me. Bram Stoker wrote Dracula then Francis Ford Coppola adapted it into a movie, then Mike Mignola and Roy Thomas adapted that into a comic. This was twenty five years ago and the comic has long been out of print. IDW Publishing has announced it’s re-releasing the series in a new hardcover edition this September.
“I cannot tell you what a relief it is to have this book back in print,” said artist Mike Mignola. “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 comic adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula clocks in at 136 pages. It features Mignola’s work in black and white and showcases the creator’s final pencils before launching Hellboy.
