Image to Publish New Dracula Graphic Novel ‘Dracula, Motherf**ker’

The classic tale of Count Dracula is getting a new graphic novel treatment by gong back to the past. And just in time for Halloween.

Alex De Campi (Archie vs. Predator) and Erica Henderson (Assassin Nation, Squirrel Girl) have teamed up to create 2020: Dracula: Motherf**ker for Image Comics. Described as “taking place in both 19th-century Vienna and Los Angeles in the year 1974,” the graphic novel is a “twist on the original story”.

The book is due out in comic shops Wednesday, Oct. 7, with a wide bookstore release the following Tuesday, Oct. 13.

“Most people who know my work are aware that I love pulp/exploitation cinema, so me doing this book shouldn’t really surprise anyone,” De Campi said in a statement. “Another thing I wanted to bring to this pulp fantasia was a  sensibility from horror anime, with its love of transformation and of the noncorporeal, to push the element of man-as-monster in directions specifically suited to sequential art.”

De Campi added in the statement that Henderson was “an absolute dream to work with. She brings so, so much to book … her expert visual storytelling skills and her experimental, wildly exciting use of color”.

De Campi said Henderson is “so famous from Squirrel Girl, so people frequently think of her in terms of her skill with comedy, but 
she can do anything”.
