    The brothers battle the vampir and learn their fates. Good action and suspense, with even the quiet moments being powerful. The art captures the horrors of the monsters well and capture the discomfort of not being in control of one's future. An excellent read. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins May 23, 2018

    The Brothers Dracul continues to establish Vlad as a hero who will gain honor and fame as he survives terrible dangers only to someday succumb and turn monstrous himself. It is that journey that is the most compelling and makes this an unusual but highly enjoyable tale. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 27, 2018

    Brothers Dracul #2 shows that the comic isnt interested in being just another historical fiction horror. It wants the character drama and the bloody horror, and it seems fit to carry both. Mix that with some good artwork, and you have a comic I can easily recommend. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Brothers Dracul definitely got my attention in the first because there are lots of interesting things to do with vampire stories going back to Vlad himself. Cullen Bunn's interpretation here is definitely intriguing to watch and it's put together in such a way with the artwork to really come across as something unique and engaging. I'm digging this interpretation a whole lot and can't wait to see what else is in store for all involved. It's definitely great in single issue form and I suspect will read great in collected form.

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jun 1, 2018

    Brothers Dracul is a dark and violent journey through the life of one of the most evil men of yesteryear. It joins other AfterShock titles like Pestilence and Unholy Grail in a solid niche of historical horror, blending fact with fiction. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Anthony Mauro May 24, 2018

    Brothers Dracul is a surprising favorite new series of mine. I'm always wary when a writer tries to do their own retelling of a classic monster story, but Bunn knocked it out of the park. Brothers Dracul #2 is a great second installment of this series. It pushes deeper into the inner workings of the Vlad and Radu, while continuing to expand on the vampire myth. Though the pacing left something to be desired, the character moments more than make up for it. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Jonathan O'Neal May 28, 2018

    "Brothers Dracul" is a nice-looking book written by a prolific comic book pro at the top of his craft, but it hasn't set its teeth into readers just yet. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Noel Thorne May 23, 2018

    Cullen Bunn can sometimes write great horror comics, but it looks like this series isn't one of them. Brothers Dracul #2 is a forgettable bor to read. Read Full Review
