Very enjoyable.
Dracula really seems to be in peril here, and the script has a surprise or two in it.
8/10

  I really wish Doctor Sun were the main character, because a bodiless brain is much more fun than this dreck.

  That was a big let down.

  I'm torn... This feels like a huge letdown, but the revealing of Dr. Sun was pretty damn cool.

  Just a whole lot of exposition this issue, but hopefully it leads to more entertaining stories later.
Wouldn't the disembodied brain have been a better enemy for the Zombie?

  I like Dr. Sun.

  Yeah, this was just more of the same for this title. But having a floating brain for a common enemy? I have to admit that was actually awesome. And I sure didn't expect to see you-know-who again.

3 stars. 2 stars for the story, plus a bonus star for the Doctor Sun reveal.

  I like seeing Dracula not massively overpowered compared to everyone else around him, but how the hell did he get out of those chains if garlic is as bad for vampires as they say it is? And Dr Sun needs to disguise the entrance to his evil lair better if it can be spotted from a helicopter in a snowstorm.

  I think they established that garlic takes away his power to transform into a bat or a mist so the chains would hold him.

As for getting out of them, he's been chained both as a mortal and immortal many times. They'd have to use something a bit more drastic than garlic to keep Dracula from escaping.

  This one loses as star because first we have Dr. Sun in his pagoda/castle on the Irish coast training Brand and then we suddenly have him in the Transylvanian Alps? These are not close places unless Dr. Sun has a teleporter available.

Two stars.
