Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
Bram Stoker's 1897 classic has been ably adapted by Michael Mucci for this graphic version of the story. All the critical plot points—Jonathan Harker's arrival in Transylvania; Mina's patient wait at home in England; Lucy's three suitors and their faithfulness to her spirit; the slave Renfield's mad addiction to spiders; and the final destruction of Dracula back in Transylvania—have been retained in this first offering in the "All-Action Classics." The artistic team of Caldwell and Halliar have interpreted the familiar story in a kid-friendly style. Caldwell's characters are Disney-wholesome and infused with a touch of humor (with the exception, of course, of the villains) and feel as if they have been spun straight from an animated film. Halliar's palette is suitably inked in the hues of night, speckled with the vivid red of blood drops and the yellows of hypnotized eyes. Aside from the difficult-to-read lettering of the historical afterward, the end result is a handsome and amusing take on an old favorite. Reviewer: Kathleen Karr

    Listen To Them, The Critics Of The Night. What Music They Make.

    It is an exclent book if you want to get to know the story, history of vlad the impaler, and the author. For some reason it was aimed at kids when it might get them to read the orignal that is sexual,sadistic,and above all else violent.IT IS AN AMAZING BOOK!

    From a Fan

    It's very nice to see this story in a publication appropriate for a younger mind. There is blood, but it's not done to a realistic degree and all the violence except for the final slaying of Dracula is done "off stage". The final slaying itself is rather quick with limited blood. If you're a collector don't pass this one up, it's very unique. Not a dark and gloomy book, plus good as a gift.

    Dracula as it was meant to be read

    They removed all the endless, boring scenery descriptions without changing the dialog and the illustrations are fantastic. I really loved it and if you think classics are boring then this is a great alternative.
