Tomb of Dracula 1Writer 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.

Check them out and let us know what you think!

By Jedi of Doom

X-Men #1
Written by: Victor Gischler
Art by: Paco Medina
Cover by: Adi Granov
Marvel Comics
Price $3.99
Release Date: July 9, 2010

Well the first issue of a brand new X-Men title is here, the title of this new series is just being called X-Men and it is going to be replacing X-Force as a primary X-Men title. It still has the X-Men based out of their base on Utopia, but they are more involved in San Francisco.

This new series is penned by Victor Gischler and drawn by Paco Medina. The artwork in this issue done by Medina reminds me a lot of the artwork done in Uncanny X-Men and in X-Men: Legacy.

My main problem with this issue, the first in the “Curse of the Mutants” story arc, is the story done by Gischlerm which involves the X-Men learning about a new threat to San Francisco, vampires. The book opens with Pixie and former X-Man Jubilee in a café in Union Square where a mysterious man takes his shirt off and begins to smoke and then proceeds to explode covering 24 people with blood, including Jubilee. So it becomes the mission of the X-Men to find out why this event happened.
