Collection of basic short stories. Significant because the last one clears up some continuity confusion. 8/10

  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!.

  "Agony...more than enough to kill 100,000 humans."

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.
