While the werewolf and zombie craze is starting to wane, vampire interest is starting to peek once again, and BOOM! Studios is hoping it will pay off for them with the release of Dracula: The Company of Monsters by Kurt Busiek, Daryl Gregory, and Scott Godlewski.

“Dracula’s a character who’s always fascinated me,” says series creator Kurt Busiek, “and getting a chance to build something firmly rooted in Dracula’s real-world (and Stoker-novel) history, but with a very modern edge, is the kind of creative challenge I love. It’s the world’s greatest vampire against the corporate world — and there’s no easy way to tell who’s the real villain, and who’s the hero. I’m thrilled to be working with Daryl, Scott and BOOM! on this. Putting it together feels like the early days of working on CONAN, and I think the results are going to be a real treat for readers.”

DRACULA: THE COMPANY OF MONSTERS tells the story of a powerful, predatory corporation that acquires a valuable asset…Dracula! They think they own him, but no one can own the Son of the Dragon. There’s a monster in their midst that puts Hannibal Lecter to shame–and he plans to gain his freedom in blood.

Well, it certainly sounds like a different take, although I could swear I saw a movie from the dark days of the late ’90s that had something similar to this, but I’ll go with it as long as I can see some more of Scott Godlweski’s artwork.  He’s currently working on Codebreakers, and I’m loving what he is doing there.
