Issue Notes

The editors note and continuity problems with the Harnknesses are an un-correctable error between this issue, the events in Giant-Size Chillers #1, and the events in Tomb of Dracula #23. The order follows the continuity of Dracula (which conflicts with the continuity of the Quincy and crew), as he has a large role in these three issues.

Another story with a baddie that Dracula has to defeat, making him a sort of anti-hero (who just so happens to kill innocents for food!). Enjoyable stuff. The setting adds a lot. 6/10

  I wish they told us how Gorka was able to resist Dracula. Other than that, this was a good story.

  An explanation about why he can control lightning and fire would have been nice too. Overall just felt like a filler issue that had nothing to do with anything else going on, and was neither overly interesting nor well explained.
That poor girl though just gets beaten by everyone in her family I suppose.

  That bite should have been fatal, from what was told in previous issues.

  I don't think he meant to kill her, at least not in the normal sense. Time will probably tell if she's going to be an undead though; hopefully, we'll see Petra again.

Still, I agree. Explanations would have been nice. Gorna's story doesn't feel like it's over. If it is, this was poorly written with too many liberties taken of vampire lore. Too bad, Gorna had a little potential as an adversary, but his obsession with his wife made him seem too petty to be taken seriously. Dracula clearly agreed.

2 stars.

  This was better than I expected, I tend to enjoy the stories more where Dracula is a side character almost rather than when it's purely about him.
