    If you loved Newman’s absolutely brilliant (and, to paraphrase Mike Mignola’s on-point comment in the forward to this graphic novel, overstuffed in a good way) Anno Dracula, you will…well, you might like this a little. Because it’s all right. My knickers are not aflame, nor are my minds blown (yes, I have more than one, unlike you pathetic humans, with your single-mindedness)…but, neither is my gag reflex active (I do only have one of t...

    Dracula is my most favourite vampire, ever. End of. He’s a legend for a reason and immortal in the literary world. He does not take centre stage in Anno Dracula, though. Not in a sense that you’ll see him baring his fangs on every page and panel… No… He already has Britain, the Royal Navy and the Special Branch of law enforcement. The struggle in this GN is in between the side who fights to keep this power and the side rebelling against i...

    Read as individual issues I just love Kim Newman's "Anno Dracula" novel series, an awesome alternative history mash up with almost ALL vampires ever appeared in books, movies, tv series (in Bloody Red Baron you can spot Nick Knight from Forever Knight!) and much more (in Dracula Cha Cha Cha there are characters from Addams Family and Diabolik italian comic, just saying), a sense stunning orgy of tributes, homages and references (in the end of iss...

    I have read about the Anno Dracula series, but never read any of the books so this comic series was my introduction to the series. I have to say I enjoyed it. Going by this series, it's set in an alternate universe where Dracula survived the events in the Bram Stoker novel and eventually took control of Europe, especially England. The series is set in 1895, and many other characters from literature show up. It's similar to League of Extraordinary...

    Anno Dracula makes it's comic book debut in this volume which takes us right back to the early days of the series. Dracula has been in power for ten years and Penelope Churchward is hired to organise the Jubilee celebrations. Meanwhile Kate Reed is on the council of Seven Days who are plotting to overthrow the Prince of Darkness and his jubilee seems a good time to do it. This is a truly great story. Kate Reed is one of my favorite characters fro...

    After reading Mike Mignola's introduction, I gotta say, I was stoked for some vampire action. The great Hellboy author praised Kim Newman specifically for his ability to transition from novel-writing to comic-writing without a loss of clarity.Allow me to strongly disagree. A glance at any page will show you a good nine panels packed with dialogue and narration boxes. This is possibly the densest comic book I've read. The word count has to be at l...

    https://thebookloversboudoir.wordpres...(copy provided by the publisher and voluntarily reviewed)Anno Dracula - 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem is an enjoyable graphic novel.I really liked the art-work. The art-work was so well done that there were several pages with no text at all because the images conveyed all the necessary information. I have zero artistic skill and am really impressed by people who illustrate graphic novels and the like. The illu...

    An original story which takes place before Dracula's downfall in Kim Newman's original novel, and features Kate Reed amidst a collection of literary horrors. I found it hard to get into at the beginning (and the violence is quite graphic, being portrayed full-on rather than merely being described) but things picked up considerably once the shape of the various overlapping conspiracies became clear.

    Kim Newman's Anno Dracula finally makes it into comic book form, and it's nothing short of wonderful. In fact, it's a story that works better as a comic than it would in prose - although if you're not already familiar with Anno Dracula, probably not the best place to start.

    I liked the art. I like the idea of a world where Dracula has won. I liked all the literary references. But I just can't get into the pulp adventure writing style of the Anno books. It's just too silly for me.

    A fun addition to the series, but I wouldn't call it a 'must read'.

    I love anno Dracula, and this is well drawn and fun. Also most of the important people, good and bad, are women.
