“As the Count leaned over me and his hands touched me… a horrible feeling of nausea came over me, which, do what I would, I could not conceal.” — Bram Stoker’s Dracula
Based upon the original novel by Bram Stoker, writers Leah Moore and John Reppion have crafted a dense, atmospheric, and faithful adaptation of the most powerful and heralded horror novel of all time!
While its legions of readers – generation after generation – think they are familiar with the story of Count Dracula and his terror-filled reign across England, what they may not know is that the original publication altered the very beginning and end of Stoker’s novel, Now, these missing elements have been worked into this DYNAMITE adaptation for The Complete Dracula!

This is one of our most ambitious projects of the year, and the beginning of a new series of literary adaptations with more surprises to come!Â After 112 years, fans deserve to read the whole story!”
