It's interesting there's a coming soon at the end, presumably planned before the Wildstorm closure was announced to staff--I wonder if it'll go to Vertigo, DC, or another publisher?

VICTORIAN UNDEAD II: SHERLOCK HOLMES VS. DRACULA #1 (OF 5)

Written by IAN EDGINTON; Art by DAVIDE FABBRI; Cover by RYAN SOOK

A year after the defeat of Professor Moriarty's revenant horde and the fire-bombing of London, restoration is well under way. Yet, from across the sea, ancient eyes cast their hungry gaze upon the still vulnerable capital…Dracula is coming!

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson investigate the wreck of the ship, the Demeter – its crew missing, the corpse of its Captain lashed to the ship's wheel – and soon realize this is merely the opening salvo of war from beyond the grave! Don't miss this start to a bloodthirsty new 5-issue miniseries!

Wildstorm 32pg. Color $3.99 US

On Sale November 10, 2010

Will say Wildstorm through December, then the assumption from the press release is that it will have the DC bullet till completion.

don't know, issue two is scheduled for December with a 32 page count at 3.99. Nothing was said about 32 page books. It will either stay at that price point and page count or it will drop to 20 and 2.99 and hopefully become a 6 part mini. 8 + 12 or 8 + 12 it would make sense for DC to keep it at 3.99.

When it says 32, that's 32 including ads.

looking at Batman and Robin, I concede the point, so then presumably, yes it would be 2.99

usually not, usually those are added later and not part of the page count. but I believe like Jim Lee's little editorial page would, my question is are those type pages part of the 22 page count?

Nope. Editorial content generally means one less add page.

Got my copy of this today.

Is this a different artist? It looks better than I remember the previews for the mini looking.

For those of you who like Zombies you really should check out the book we are doing in the OH Novel group. It's pretty fucking good.
