    UNIVERSAL MONSTERS: DRACULA #1 is a masterful and faithful adaptation of the 1931 classic film. Tynions script adapts the source beautifully to match the comic format, but Simmondss atmospheric, ethereal art steals the show. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 8, 2023

    As bad a movie as it was, Tod Brownings Dracula is starkly iconic and a landmark horror film. Theres something kind of cool about a big two-page title spread that reads Universal Pictures and Skybound Present...Dracula. Tynion and Simmonds manage a first issue that feels darkly cinematic while intensifying the atmosphere that feels that much more powerful than that which was committed to film on the Universal Studios Lot in the Autumn of 1930.  Read Full Review
