Titan Comics have announced the upcoming release of an all-new comic series based on the best selling Anno Dracula novels, written by creator Kim Newman with art by Paul McCaffrey (The Third Doctor).
The Anno Dracula novels depict an alternate 19th-century history where the characters of Bram Stoker’s Dracula fail to prevent Count Dracula’s subjugation of Great Britain, creating a world where vampires are living amongst humans and a central part of society. The series also features characters including Jack the Ripper, Professor Moriarty and Van Helsing.
First published in 1992, critic, author and broadcaster Kim Newman has written four Anno Dracula novels to date, as well as short stories. Described as “the definitive account of…the self-obsessed undead” by New York Times, the Anno Dracula novels have won numerous awards including the Dracula Society’s Children of the Night Award, the Lord Ruthven Award and the International Horror Guild Award.
Titan Comics’ Anno Dracula hits stores in March 2017, and is available to pre-order now.
