Dracula is cast - very definitely - as a Bad Guy in this story set in Transylvania, 1809. The hero is a man from the village beside Dracula's castle who wants to defeat/destroy the vampire. A lot happens, and our sympathy lies with Lupescu right from the beginning. 9/10

  The Pit of Death was alright. The Lilith story sucked. They did use the word bitch though. Promising to see a curse word in comics finally.

  You would think that after the body disappeared on its own that they may lend a little more credence to his story.
I really wish they would at least TRY to keep their vampire rules consistent. Why did the wife come back after being staked? I thought Drac was the only one that could pull that off. And why didn't the cross work just because they were in the castle?

  This was the same plot as the one with the policeman. Endless repeats.

  +1 star for the Leia hairdo on page 2...2 years before the release of Star Wars.

  The story was serviceable enough. I think I prefer the stories that take place in the past because there's more room for anything to happen, instead of an ongoing continuity like Tomb of Dracula. However, I'm considerably Drac'd out by now.

2 stars.
