Issue Review
   July 14, 2017
Aimless story, which goes nowhere.

Dracula meets an old woman and, in flashback, we see her as a young girl making a bizarre pact with him to save an old priest's life.

It's hard to care about dumb characters making dumb choices.

Also: The Dracula of this story is unsubtle. A savage killer, seemingly without restraint or common sense. Yet, he is easily beaten.

It's not clear why the girl would seek his aid, nor is it clear why he would be so obsessed with her all these years later.

  Not bad at all, McKenzie.
When I first saw Dracula in the Order, I thought he'd be some kind of misunderstood, tragic character with some redeeming qualities or that he'll transform from a villain into a hero, sooner or later. But lately I realised this guy is just pure evil. There is nothing honorable or positive about Dracula. 500+ years of rape and slaughter, no remorse, no pity. That's horrible.

  -1823 is a lil too early for an elevator of that sort and way too early for the term "heart attack."
-Nothing new here...

  I guess if you have Dracula kidnapping child brides in part 1, it doesn't seem too bad to have him ripping open orphan girls blouses in part 2... but this was as close to child porn as I've seen in the order

  Gotta love the rare victory a human earns over Dracula.
