Writer Victor Gischler (X-Men, Death Of Dracula) and artist Goran Parlov (Marvel Universe Vs. The Punisher) bring us this tale of the rise of one special vampire above the rest of his kind from the ashes of a feud that tore his kind apart. This mysterious new leader of the vampires is a character from Marvel’s past that will also be central to the epic Fear Itself story that will be kicking off in April. Tomb of Dracula Presents: Throne of Blood #1 hits the shelves at your favorite comic book shop April 27th.
So we have an early look at what promises to be something different for Marvel heads to dig into. The cover art is modern and pretty great, but the interior pages feel very old school comic book. Backgrounds are a little bland overall. This style could very well be appropriate to the story the creators are trying to tell. These are great images because they not only show the art but they also offer up a little sample of the writing.
