  This issue is like a clip show. Unneeded and pointless.

  I wouldn't call it a clip show, because it's not showing us things we've seen before, but filled the gaps in our knowledge. For example how Dracula came to be dead in his castle, when we saw him dead in some cave in Frankenstein. Sure it was lots of exposition, but it fleshed things out well in my opinion.

  I liked this issue. It made so much more sense now that I've read Dracula Lives!.

Yep, not a fan of Marv Wolfman's writing.

  I'm hopeful that this issue serves as the reset point that it seems to be so that they get away from the previous formula, otherwise I'll be dreading every issue going forward.

  This feels like they just shoved a bunch of random stuff they couldn't bother developing into proper stories into an anthology issue. The last two in particular feel like they could've been made into actual issues, or at the very least Dracula Lives stories.

  This is the kind of reflection Dracula should have been going through while being murdered and resurrected by the Xtian cult. Not sitting in a study.

Dracula works when characterized with a demented form of noblesse oblige

I think Philip Glass' score for Dracula is a nice accompaniment for this issue

  I guess once Drac takes over the planet with vampirism and the younger undead will want to read his life's story, this would be the time Drac sits down to write about his past experiences. Hey, he might writing a best-seller.

Some of the vignettes here weren't too bad. I think the Pool of Blood sequence would've worked best in the Dracula Lives mag. The sequence with Richard and Kitty was ironic and amusing; I wonder if we'll see Kitty again. Other than that, this was nothing more than a stopping point with nothing really remarkable happening. This book as it's been going doesn't really work anymore.

2 stars. Hopefully this marks a new era for the book.

  Dull. Dracula talking to wolves seems stupid - I think he's done it before as well, but it still seems stupid.

  I'm confused .... I thought Drake's ancestor was the one who killed him?

So is this a retcon? Because I thought they had already retconned his death to be at the hands of Van Helsing?

  2 stars for Dracula keeping a pink diary with a little locket!!!

Cleopatra - Whew, at first I thought the arguing couple was Liz & Dick!!!

Deadpool - I would love to see more of Orphelus and the Blood Pool!!!

Braveheart - I like it that the Scotsman didn't get dressed up for nothing!!!

Bloodlines - @VenomousIntent: I'm guessing the writers realized that having Drac slept through the early 1900's. Would have him missing out on key historical events.

  Wait, Dracula murders people a lot, but when he sees someone else get murdered he's suddenly all about justice and revenge? What a mixed up, conflicted guy.
