Official Press Release

This August, BOOM! Studios debuts a new ongoing horror series sure to make your blood run cold, DRACULA: THE COMPANY OF MONSTERS. Kurt Busiek, along with acclaimed writer Daryl Gregory and sensational artist Scott Godlewski, take you through the dark corridors of the corporate American boardroom and show you vampires aren’t the only kinds of bloodsuckers!

“Dracula's a character who's always fascinated me,” says series creator Kurt Busiek, “and getting a chance to build something firmly rooted in Dracula's real-world (and Stoker-novel) history, but with a very modern edge, is the kind of creative challenge I love. It's the world's greatest vampire against the corporate world -- and there's no easy way to tell who's the real villain, and who's the hero. I'm thrilled to be working with Daryl, Scott and BOOM! on this. Putting it together feels like the early days of working on CONAN, and I think the results are going to be a real treat for readers.”

DRACULA: THE COMPANY OF MONSTERS tells the story of a powerful, predatory corporation that acquires a valuable asset…Dracula! They think they own him, but no one can own the Son of the Dragon. There's a monster in their midst that puts Hannibal Lecter to shame--and he plans to gain his freedom in blood.

It's bloodsuckers vs. bloodsucker, as Busiek brings an incredibly modern spin to the Dracula mythos. Joining Busiek is award-winning author Daryl Gregory (PANDEMONIUM) and rising star artist Scott Godlewski (CODEBREAKERS). The epic journey starts here, so don't miss the debut issue of DRACULA: THE COMPANY OF MONSTERS, the next breakout ongoing series from BOOM! Studios! Featuring covers by fan-favorite THE NOCTURNALS artist Dan Brereton, and Ron Salas!

"The collective raw storytelling talent between Kurt and Daryl is boundless," said BOOM! Studios Managing Editor Matt Gagnon. "Readers should be prepared for a cracking horror story that's intense, arresting, and explores the nuances between good and evil. Dracula is back from the dead, and in very good hands!"

DRACULA: THE COMPANY OF MONSTERS is written by Kurt Busiek (SUPERMAN, AVENGERS, IRON MAN) and Daryl Gregory (PANDEMONIUM) with art by red-hot artist Scott Godlewski (CODEBREAKERS). Issue one ships with two covers by Dan Brereton and Ron Salas in a 50/50 split and a 1-in-10 incentive cover. This title ships in August and caries a Diamond code of JUN100841.
