    Good retelling of the story, just would have liked the art to be a little more beautiful.

    2.5 I found myself being distracted by the illustrations :( the art style isn't one that I personally like. I don't read many graphic novels, so maybe it's because I'm not sure if I don't like this format or not, but I didn't enjoy reading this :( 2.5 I found myself being distracted by the illustrations :( the art style isn't one that I personally like.

First of all, they left some parts of the original novel out and it made the story very short and out of sorts. For example, there was no mention of Lucy's third suitor Quincy Morrison who was supposed to die instead of Arthur Holmwood.

    Not bad. A creepy story of vampires, bats and wolves. The language was a little different but that's because I'm not British. I enjoyed this very much. Not bad.

    For a fact: I'm only giving this two stars because I'm trying to be generous towards Matt Pagett for his attempt to adapt such a boring novel. Matt did a good job on summary, in my opinion, and I think it was wise to skip-out on making this book a bunch of diary entries. Once, a while ago, I read a book from this collection Matt has done with another fellow or two, where they adapt old novels into graphic novels.

Matt did a good job on summary, in my opinion, and I think it was wise to skip-out on making this book a bunch of diary entries. Once, a while ago, I read a book from this collection Matt has done with another fellow or two, where they adapt old novels into graphic novels. I had read the adaptation of a few Edgar Allan Poe stories, and not only did I comprehend some of those short stories and poems in a new way, but I also walked away with my breath missing, due to the absolutely gorgeous artwork. But the Poe adaptation was done by another person—not Matt Pagett. I'm assuming Matt did the illustrations for this book. I'm sorry, Matt, but these pictures are awful. It drags the entire well-summarized story into the dirt. It's so bad that, at some points, I'm not sure exactly what happened. Towards the end, Van Helsing gets into a sprawl that literally looks like an episode of South Park. The book can be a mess, due to the art, but I still found this way less dreadful than Stoker's actual novel (which I read almost four years ago). I also own the Frankenstein and Dr. Jekyll adaptations, so I'm hoping those won't turn-out like this one. I'm still utterly baffled by how boring this story remains, even in a summarized form (which definitely isn't Matt's fault). I'm hoping the art and appeal of the storylines will make the other books just as entertaining as the Poe adaptations.

    Because my phone's dead I had to go old school for Saturday night comic reading and do it from a BOOK. A physical book. By far, this was the adaptation of the classic Dracula I have ever read. I got scared off the real deal as a kid when I tried to read it. I think the language in the introduction was too lofty and too long winded. I dubbed Dracula as "boring". This was anything but boring! It left me hooping and hollering in a quiet room with other people. "WOW! MINA'S A BADASS!"

Now this graphic novel has wet my chops to read the real deal again! Which I feel that is the purpose of abridged versions of the classics for youths. I'm just a busy person who doesn't like to work that hard when reading for pleasure. Come fight me. Anyway, I loved it. I think I'm going to try to donate my copy to my local library.

    Overall, I loved this book! It was my first time actually reading Dracula, and I enjoyed it! The way it was illustrated captured the story fairly well, and I love how Dracula himself was drawn in particular. I do think I’d love the actual book a bit more though, because even though this was fun to read, it ended up being a bit meh for me in terms of giving details and being immersive.

    I loved it almost as much as the novel but yet a common factor from film adaptations and other novels appeared, the factor being that Quincey Morris is not in the story which is a real shame. But I did enjoy having a visual sense of my favourite settings and character is a great sensation.

    I've heard about Dracula but never knew his story. I wanted to try a graphic novel, I thought it would be easier to get through during midterms. I felt it was choppy like I was missing pieces. Maybe I'll try the actual book next year. I've heard about Dracula but never knew his story. I wanted to try a graphic novel, I thought it would be easier to get through during midterms.

    This was pretty good. I’m not a graphic novel type of reader, but this greatly interested me because Dracula is my favorite book and Bram Stoker is a pure genius. The drawings were kinda funky and fit with the dark theme and storyline.

    It is a quick follow on the novel, just simpler and with pictures. If you don't have time to go in deep, this graphic novel is for you. It is a quick follow on the novel, just simpler and with pictures. If you don't have time to go in deep, this graphic novel is for you.

    An interesting adaptation! I found it hit the highlights of the story well, and I thought the art conveyed the atmosphere well.
