The Beautiful ‘Dracula Everlasting’
One of my biggest loves is comics, honestly, I would be perfectly content reading comics all day (and I have many times), so when I stumbled upon a beautifully illustrated comic titled Dracula Everlasting I had to share.
Dracula Everlasting is a new manga written by Nunzio DeFilippis and Christina Weir and illustrated by Rhea Silvan. The first 35 pages of the comic are available on the Seven Seas website and they are fantastic! The artwork is incredible and the story moves at a great pace (a problem many comics have nowadays).
From the Dracula Everlasting website:
“A tale of teenage angst, romance… and blood! Nicholas Harker is an average teen who has just lost his parents in a tragic accident. But when he learns he is the sole heir to a vast estate from a mysterious ancestor he never knew he had, his life will never be average again. Together with his new friend, Jill Hawthorne, who has relocated from London, Nicholas discovers that he is a direct descendant of Lord Dracula, and what’s worse, Dracula’s spirit is beginning to exert control over him.
In this all new shoujo manga series, Seven Seas is pleased to present a contemporary spin on the world’s most famous vampire, Dracula. Amazing Agent Luna writers Nunzio DeFilippis and Christina Weir team up with artist Rhea Silvan to deliver a beautifully illustrated ongoing vampire series that expands on the Dracula mythos like never before.”
I’m not usually a big fan of teenage angst or teen romance stories, but the preview of Dracula Everlasting has me interested enough that I’m willing to give the manga a shot. You can read the first page of the preview here (remember it’s manga so you have to read right to left).
What do you guys think? Does Dracula Everlasting sound like a comic you would like to read? Let us know in a comment below.
Moonlight (aka Amanda) loves to write about, read about and learn about everything pertaining to vampires. You will most likely find her huddled over a book of vampire folklore with coffee in hand. Touch her coffee and she may bite you (and not in the fun way).
