Check out the new motion trailer for the upcoming graphic novel DRACULAstarring iconic film and stage actor Bela Lugosi from Legendary Comics (now available for pre-sale and on-sale in bookstores and online on November 3).
Bram Stoker. Bela Lugosi. Two names forever bound by Dracula. And for the first time ever, Bram Stoker’s gothic masterpiece is being united with the definitive screen Dracula, Bela Lugosi, in Legendary Comics’ all new graphic novel.
In the late 19th Century, Dracula, an ancient Transylvanian vampire, moves to England to find fresh blood and spread his evil contagion. There, he encounters two women, Lucy and Mina, who become the targets of his dark obsession. Aided by a group of brave men, Professor Van Helsing arrives on the scene to take on the Vampire Prince in the ultimate battle between the forces of light and dark.
“There have been great Dracula graphic novels, but to unite Bram Stoker’s novel in a faithful adaptation with the definitive Dracula in the form of screen icon Bela Lugosi is a dream come true,” said Robert Napton, Senior Vice President of Legendary Comics. “I am grateful to the Lugosi Estate, artist El Garing and art director Kerry Gammill for bringing their passion to this project.”
“On behalf of the Lugosi Family, I want to thank Legendary Comics, especially Robert Napton, as well as artists El Garing and Kerry Gammill, for honoring my father with a stunning graphic novel that features Bela Lugosi as Bram
Stoker’s Dracula,” said Bela G. Lugosi.
“Bela Lugosi created his unique portrayal of Count Dracula on the Broadway stage and has become a cultural icon for his performance in the 1931 film,” said Lynne Lugosi Sparks. “This graphic novel beautifully answers the question: What would Lugosi’s performance look like in a direct interpretation of Bram Stoker’s novel? We believe Legendary Comics has proven what fans already know—Bela Lugosi is Dracula.”
