Editorial Reviews

Stephen King
I love Jae Lee’s work, and I think this is going to be a dynamite partnership. Frankly, I can’t wait. (on his work with Lee for the Dark Tower series)
Library Journal
Miss Eyre and the Count get illustrated by two leading comics artists-Dame Darcy for Bront and Jae Lee for Stoker. Both have been illustrated before; Eyre was one of the original "Classics Illustrated" comics, and the big D has inspired artists for a century. These color and black-and-white illustrations might not be everyone's cup (Dracula is bald and sans mustache), but their comicslike look might attract younger readers.

With the recent "vampire movement" at hand, it is imperative that "Twighlight-junkies" take the time to read Stoker's story in an effort to gain an appreciation for the root of the legendary vampire tale that in effect, started it all. This particular edition, peppered with the wonderful illistrations of the talented Jae Lee- make this book a collector's copy in my opinion! I Love it!

This book tells a gripping tale, but it is not just a good story. If one can look past the pedestrian aspects of the language and the Victorian frills, one can feel the truly beautiful flow of the prose. This book explores few themes, and one of those, the theme of madness, is not always dealt with very well. In this book, good faces evil, and for a large part of the book, it seemed that the characters were intended to be seen as purely one or the other, and as we all know, this is never the case when people are involved. However, through the insights of the wonderful character Mina Harker, the characters grow in understanding and compassion even towards Dracula. I could list out all of the problems that I perceived in this book, but they are all subjective and I overlook them because of the magnitude of what Stoker accomplished and all of the art that his book has inspired. This edition is wonderful and perhaps the best available. Except for a few very obvious typos, I wouldn't recommend any other. Jae Lee's illustrations are very noteworthy and must have involved a sensitive reading of the book.

That's what it ways on the back cover anyway!! Nicely illustrated - nice print - very enjoyable to read. A pricier version of the classic but I feel it is worth the extra - check out the used section for some great deals.
