“He’s back from the dead and starring in a new ongoing horror series from the mind of Kurt Busiek. A powerful, predatory corporation 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. It’s bloodsuckers vs. bloodsucker, as Busiek brings a modern spin to the Dracula mythos.”
