All-new vampire comic series based on Stoker’s world-famous Dracula coming in May!
Diego, CA (March 18, 2010) – For more than one hundred years, Bram Stoker’s
iconic vampire has frightened readers around the world. Now, IDW
Publishing and writer Gary Gerani (Pumpkinhead) add
another layer to this horrifying tale with Bram Stoker’s Death
Ship. Starting in May, the all-new four-issue series offers the
untold story of the harrowing, nightmarish sea voyage from Transylvania
“This book is a really creepy,” commented IDW Senior
Editor, Bob Schreck. “If you love the Bram Stoker original,
you’re absolutely going to love this comic book series, as both Gary and Stuart
worked very hard to capture that sense of dread in the pit of your
stomach and stark raving mind-shattering fear.”
Gerani, the creator and co-screenwriter of Stan Winston’s
Pumpkinhead, this horror series takes readers on a blood-pumping
journey on the Russian schooner Demeter. One by one, the
terrified crewmembers vanish, victims of the unearthly lifeform that
lies comatose in the ship’s hold during daylight hours. Artist Stuart
Sayger brings this un-dead tale to life with gripping interior art
as well as a variant cover for the first issue. Popular hardcover and
paperback cover artist, Cliff
Nielsen, provides all four stunning, spine-tingling painted
covers for the entire series.
Bram Stoker’s Death Ship #1
(of 4, $3.99, 32 pages, full color) will be available in stores in May.
