Good news horror fans, this August, BOOM! Studios will be debuting a new ongoing comic book series titled Dracula: The Company Of Monsters.
The book will feature a stellar crew including acclaimed writers Kurt Busiek and Daryl Gregory (Pandemonium) along with artist Scott Godlewski (Codebreakers). It will also feature covers by artist Dan Brereton (The Nocturnals) and Ron Salas.
Busiek had this to say about the upcoming book:
“Dracula’s a character who’s always fascinated me 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.”
The story of Dracula: The Company Of Monsters revolves around a powerful, predatory corporation that acquires a valuable asset [Dracula!]. They think they own him, but no one can own the Son of the Dragon. There’s a monster in their midst that puts Hannibal Lecter to shame — and he plans to gain his freedom in blood.
Issue one ships in August.
