Author(s): Bram Stoker
Count Dracula as you've never seen him before! The novel that made vampire a household word, Bram Stoker's "Dracula" has been delighting - and chilling - readers for well over 100 years. Now the immortal Count returns in this stunning new edition, offering the complete text of Stoker's dark masterwork adorned with more than 50 original illlustrations by renowned, award-winning artist Becky Cloonan. Johnny Depp produces and stars as Barnabas Collins in what will be the eighth collaboration between the two. Also starring are Helena Bonham-Carter, Michelle Pfeiffer, Eva Green, and Jackie Earle Hayley. "Dark Shadows" is inspired by the TV show of the same name, which ran from 1966-1971. Drawing on classic gothic and horror novels for its storylines, this daily gothic soap opera featured ghosts, zombies, werewolves, and witches; when the Dracula-inspired Barnabas Collins was introduced in 1967, the show's popularity soared, signifying the power of the vampire figure. A more contemporary Count Dracula - rendered edgier, more colourful and stylishly macabre with Victorian overtones, through Cloonan's unparalleled artistic skill and unique visual imagination - takes flight in this magnificent volume that every "Twilight" and "True Blood" fan will want to sink their teeth into.
