This mini is really shaping into something great, I love Snyder’s take on Dracula here. Along with Dustin Nguyen’s brilliantly atmospheric artwork, this issue managed to deliver a lot of exposition about who this version of Dracula, but make it gripping and exciting. I thought it was cool how this was done using text and artwork from outside the story, perhaps a nod to Stroker’s Dracula being an epistolary novel? I also really liked how Snyder tied in Dracula to Jack The Ripper and the theory that Jack was actually a member of the Royal Family. It’s also very exciting that Dracula is causing this level of trouble for the VMS before we’ve even seen him, he can control all of the other Carpathian Vampires. I wonder if we’ll even get to see him in the story? It could be more effective if his evil influence is all we get. He can even control Gus, who only used to be a Vampire.
