Brothers Dracul #1



Dracula, alive and moaning about it.

There are countless origin stories for Dracula, but this appears to be the only one that see’s his beginnings as a moody teen with daddy issues.

In the mid 15th century a ruler and his two sons are captured by an evil sultan and held until they yield to his will, once the father pledges his allegiance to the sultan he has no choice but to leave his sons at the whim of the sultan.

The eldest son Vlad is angry that his father just left him and even more so is angry with the sultan. This will no doubt lead to him becoming the heartless blood thirsty killer we know him to be in his later years.

The story jumps from the adult years of the two brothers to the days of them being help by a sultan, in later issues I’m sure we will see them reunited with their father but Vlad being less than happy to see him, his evolution from angsty teen to stone cold killer looks to be an interesting one as the opening pages show what Vlad becomes as his brother returns after years to see he has impaled dozens of the men on giant pikes to his brothers horror. Back as children they’re being trained by the sultan in archery and sent to hunt the culprits in the massacre of an entire village, when they corner the culprit they discover it is less than human.

The art is great inside the book however the cover lets this book down a little.

I've been collecting comics since I was 13. A comic shop near where I lived was closing down and selling all their back issues for 25p. My cousin and I had a look around. I had £5 and spent it all on Wonder Woman comics. For the next decade I picked up a few more here and there but nothing serious until I spent the day in the centre of London and saw half a dozen comic book stores. It didn't take long after that to complete the whole 226 issue run. While collecting Wonder Woman comics, several more titles peeked my interest including Supergirl and Young Justice by Peter David which to this day have been my all time favourite comic runs. Now I'm almost 8,000 comics deep into my obsession and have been lucky enough to review comics for the past couple of years and now have my own site to share my passion.
