Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This 1970s series, which sees Dracula revived in the present and spreading terror anew, has been highly regarded among comics fans. Pursuing Dracula is a group including Rachel Van Helsing (great-granddaughter of Bram Stoker's Van Helsing), Frank Drake (descendant of a prevampiric Dracula), and the vampire hunter Blade, who first appeared here and later inspired a popular film series. This volume reveals Blade's origin and introduces Dracula's estranged daughter, Lilith, while Dracula faces other supernatural menaces (including Marvel's Werewolf By Night) and the bizarre scientist Doctor Sun, who craves Dracula's power. VERDICT A few early issues are poor and melodramatic, but the writing stabilizes when Wolfman (!) takes over permanently halfway through Volume 1 and improves from there. The 1970s writing style is far wordier than most current comics, but Wolfman's storytelling comes to match the stories' gothic atmosphere, aided by Colan's eerie, beshadowed artwork. The "parental advisory" label seems simply because of the series' occult nature, though it may indicate that other, more adult Dracula work from Marvel's black-and-white magazines may be included later. This full-color paperback series is recommended over previous collected editions.—S.R.
