Vampires are all the rage at the moment, which is probably why Tony Lee and Peter-Davis Douglas and Neil Antwerpen have cooked up a sequel to the original Dracula tale called From The Pages of Bram Stoker’s Dracula: Harker.
A ghostly visit from the past informs Jonathan Harker that the legacy of Count Dracula isnâ€™t over, for there was one last bride, the Countess Von Gratz, otherwise known as the Countess Dracule, a Vampire never seen in the classic novel â€“ and she intends to travel to London to reap revenge on the people who killed her late husband, as well as take for her own nefarious means the unborn child of Mina and Jonathan Harker.
According to Tony Lee, this is the first graphic novel sequel to get approval from the Stoker family.
â€˜We are honoured to have people such as Dacre Stoker, Ian Holt and Leslie Klinger involved in our book, if only in a small way.â€™ Said Harry Markos, publisher of AAM/Markosia. â€˜Tony met with Leslie in January, then Dacre and Ian in New York in February, and since then theyâ€™ve been incredibly helpful and supportive of our project. With so many â€˜sequelsâ€™ out there that have no loyalty to the original book, itâ€™s great that a book that does stay faithful to its source material gets such a windfall.â€™
