The publisher describes this as horror/noir, but with that title, who cares? It'll be a fun romp, and when you're done you'll sing, "Fangs for the memories!" Recommended By Doug C., Powells.com
Synopses & Reviews
Vienna, 1889: Dracula's brides nail him to the bottom of his coffin. Los Angeles, 1974: an ageing starlet decides to raise the stakes. Crime scene photographer Quincy Harker is the only man who knows it happened, but will anyone believe him before he gets his own chalk outline? And are Dracula's three brides there to help him... or use him as bait? A pulpy, pulse-pounding graphic novel of California psych-horror from acclaimed creators Alex De Campi and Erica Henderson.
"The slim volume packs in action, avoids exposition, and lets the art carry characterizations rather than rely on dialogue dumps. This feminist-friendly evolution of the Brides of Dracula mashes up pop culture and classic references from a comics maverick to offer dizzy, delicious fun for horror fans." Publishers Weekly
About the Author
Alex de Campi writes comics. She is best known for her critically-acclaimed teen survival thriller, No Mercy, and the groundbreaking, digital-native comic, Valentine. Her latest work is the spy noir miniseries, Mayday. She was nominated for an Eisner for her first comic work, Smoke, and it's all been downhill from there. Alex also directs music videos, and has worked with acts as diverse as Grand Duchy (Frank Black / Violet Clark), Joan As Police Woman, and Amanda Palmer to the retro-fabulous Puppini Sisters.
Alex's background is a three-whisky conversation and involves several continents. She is a single mother of an awesome daughter; they live in the Stephen Kingdom (Downeast Maine) with two dogs. She has an opinion on nearly everything. You can peruse them, along with stupid photos and memes, at @alexdecampi on most social media.
Erica Henderson is a multiple Eisner winning comic artist known most for rebooting The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl and Jughead. She has not lived in New York for a decade but still has very strong opinions on bagels.
