    Weekly Comic Book Review - Tony Rakittke Jul 2, 2010

    I generally tend to dislike vampires. I think they're boring, effeminate, fops and not terribly frightening as Bad Guys. But then I read this comic and saw tribes of vampires from across the globe uniting to form…what? A new world power? A supernatural terrorist front? Too early to say at this point, but Gischler and company have created a world that I want to learn more about, and I think I'm going to follow this story and see where it goes. Surprisingly good stuff! Read Full Review

    Mania - Ben Johnson July 06, 2010 Jul 6, 2010

    My biggest concern going forward is I’m not convinced X-books are the best place to take this story. Such outstanding groundwork has been laid for a vampire quest / political intrigue / world spanning adventure I’m wondering why Wolverine has to be involved. In spite of the criticism, I’ll still be sitting outside my shop Wednesday morning waiting for the books to drop, and that’s why this gem lands a solid B+. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Andrenn Oct 15, 2010

    The most amazing thing of all is that they are resurrecting Dracula... in a X-book, of all places.Quote 0#2babs2010-10-15 16:06question . are we going to get horror themed reviews instead of normal ones like cap america ultimate spiderman thanos?Quote 0#3Andrenn2010-10-15 16:09@Two-Bit Specialist: I saw that they already brought him back. Jeez. So much for his Death, he's already back. Great marketing plan Marvel. Maybe next you can kill off Aunt May only to revea-oh...wait.Quote 0#4Andrenn2010-10-15 16:10@Babs: I said in the Halloween announcement that my horror reviews wouldn't stop regular comic reviews. Kevin and Rokk have still posted their regular reviews like normal. I'll have a couple of regular reviews as well still.Quote Refresh comments list Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Blake Petit Jul 1, 2010

    This book is going to be a sleeper, Im sure of it. Its a very strong opening to what I hope will prove to be a strong storyline. Gischler really feels like the right person to tell this story, and Im looking forward to watching him blend the horror aspects of this story with a superhero world. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Timothy Callahan Jul 6, 2010

    I didn't care one bit about the announcement of "The Death of Dracula," but now I want to see what happens next. And even if it turns out to be a waste of time, watching Scott Summers get grumpy at a bunch of bloodsuckers, then at least we'll have this single issue to remember. When the vampiric Brutus and Cassius debated the fate of the world, and it seemed to matter so much. Read Full Review

    IGN - Richard George Jun 30, 2010

    Marvel's vampire era has finally arrived. Whether strictly engaged as a way to install a new threat on the level of Hydra and the Hand, or as a way to tap into some of the Twilight fever, the publisher has tapped Victor Gischler and Giuseppe Camuncoli to generate fresh civilizations, fresh incarnations and fresh rivalries for one of the oldest concepts in literature. It works well for the most part. Though heavy on the action and light on character, the special certainly sets the stage in an energetic and well-paced manner. Camuncoli must be commended for his spectacular art and design sense. Ultimately this one's a bit simple and predictable in its execution, but it does feel like a breath of fresh air. Let's just hope these "new" additions to the Marvel Universe are used in clever ways. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - G-Man Jun 30, 2010

    We have an interesting take on vampires here. I dug the different sects and didn't really think about the different types of vampires that might exist in the Marvel Universe. You get a hint of how the events here could lead to a bigger repercussions in other Marvel comics. I'm not sure if anything here was really crucial enough to warrant a $3.99 one shot comic. Yeah, there is a "death" and the players are set up but it just wasn't enough to knock me off my feet. It could be worth picking up, depending on how much we'll see of these vampires and Dracula's sons in other titles. Read Full Review
