Every year for the past five years in October, I have listened to an Audio Book recording of the original Bram Stoker's Dracula. I'm very familiar with this story. It's told through various diaries and newspaper clippings.

This comic is very faithful to the original book, in that it uses that same style. Traditional comic books usually have use rectanglse devoted to exposition from either a narrator, or a character's inner monologue. This comic uses diaries and new clippings in place of those. And I am not quite sure it works as well for comics as it does for the book. I found myself wishing this was a more traditional comic. But that's just me.

Aside from a few bits and pieces of little consequence being altered or removed, the story goes down almost exactly as it does in the original book. The major difference is that the short story "Dracula's Guest" is used as a basis for the introduction, which I don't feel works as well as the original story.

The book itself is deceptively thin. The pages are on razor thin magazine style paper. The illustrations are beautiful, I'd say some panels were actual photographs if I didn't know any better.

Get this comic if you're a big fan of the original Bram Stoker story, or if you want to experience the original story but you want an alternative to the original book. If you're expecting Bella Legosi and the Universal Monster style tone, maybe this isn't for you.

Overall, i was quite impressed with this collection; i was disappointed with the first issue (see below), but it got ALOT better as it went on.

One of the more controversial elements all through its history in adapting (or even annotating) Stoker's novel is the excised chapter that has now become known as "Dracula's Guest." i completely defend the authors' decision to include "Dracula's Guest" as the opening chapter in this adaptation. I feel Stoker's original lacks just a little for this 'short story' being removed - it is a fantastic, evocative piece or writing, with a really immersive atmosphere. My only complaint about its inclusion in "The Complete Dracula" is that i don't feel it is visually epic ENOUGH (something i don't feel about the rest of this work, mostly).

Issue 1 was, in my opinion, a bit weak. It felt a little rushed, like Moore & Reppion had a plan for what issue was going to cover what material (which, it turns out, they did, as becomes clear when you read the notes in the back), but in trying to do so, they couldn't get in what they needed to match the atmosphere of the novel. There is a serious level of atmosphere in the first 5 chapters of the novel - maybe the most 'gothic,' dark, nightmarish atmosphere in the whole of fiction - and it didn't quite come out in the comic.

In the notes for issue 2, M&R write: "This issue takes everything we had in #1 cranks it up a notch." Truer words were never spoken. Several pages into Issue 2, my trepidation dropped off markedly. The authors - all 3, writers and artist - bring out the Victorian era of the novel really well, as well as the more specific elements of Stoker's novel - Renfield's mania (maybe the most consistent and consistently good presentation in the book), Seward's helplessness, Van Helsing's looming 'presence,' etc. By the end of the adaptation, i was right there with the characters in the moment, as i was with original novel.

One thing anyone adapting a novel into a visual format (movie or comic) struggles with is what to include and what to leave out - you only have so many frames/panels/pages available, so you need to make them count. i found myself on occasion filling in the necessary gaps with visuals from what i consider to be the top of the heap in "Dracula" adaptations (Francis Ford Coppola's "Bram Stoker's Dracula") - and this is not a bad thing; this work stands up very well in a comparison with that movie, and if i personally am able to do this - create, in my mind, a more rounded, fuller experience with material from another property that i hold so dear - then the creators of the work in question (ie, Moore & Reppion, & this graphic novel), have done nothing less than an accomplished job.

You can't review a graphic novel without a remark about the artwork. This Colton Worley fellow - who, i freely admit, i've never heard of - is amazing. Like any artist, he has his weak moments - this angle looks weird, this facial expression fails, this visual doesn't quite work as intended - but overall, i was fairly impressed with his work, and it must have taken AGES, every panel fully painted as they are. Some of the panels border on photographic!! i was especially impressed with his work on the characters' hands - this is not an easy part of the body to get right!!

In conclusion, this is an adaptation worth adding to your collection. Some of the visuals - like, for instance, the headshot of the Count on the cover - stoke (no pun intended!) the imagination every bit as much as the novel itself. The writing is thoughtful, and does a respectable job of invoking/maintaining character delineation, and the selection and subsequent layout of the material is admirable, clearly done with a lot of thought, and is respectful of the source material (probably the most important element of any exercise in adaptation).

If you haven't read the original, you are missing out; but this adaptation will give you a really good idea of what you're in for; if you HAVE read the novel, and know what to expect from "Dracula," this will not only not disappoint - it may even surprise you. And it might even lend some of its visuals to that store in your mind, to use as a comparison for the next inevitable adaptation of "Dracula."

Awesome!

I can't say that Dracula has ever been on of my favorite classic, but I have been thinking of re-reading the book since it has been years since I read it. But now I don't need to, since I read this faithful graphic novel instead. But i must admit that I would have preferred the book instead and I will probably try to re-read the book sometime in the future when my memory has faded a bit...

I had some problem with the font, a lot of different fonts was used some worked fine on the Ipad, some where a lot harder to read, so in the end I read part of it on the computer and part of it on my Ipad (depending on If was near a computer since I wasn't always at home)

Also the art...hmm it just didn't do the trick for me. I wasn't really overwhelmed by it.

But it the end it was a hell of a ride!
