After the huge success, both on Zoop and in the comic shops on both sides of the Atlantic, the only official sequel to Bram Stoker’s classic Dracula novel, written by his Great Grand Nephew Dacre Stoker, who is custodian of the Stoker legacy and co-writer Chris McAuley, most well known for his Science fiction writing with Babylon 5 star Claudia Christian and his work on franchises such as Doctor Who and Terminator continues with a second issue.
Publishers Scratch Comics in partnership with the Zoop crowdfunding platform, are proud to be running a campaign to reunite the incredible art team of Chris Geary, David Hitchcock and Matt Soffe to continue the comic book saga of the Lord of Vampire’s return to un-life and his revenge against the surviving heroes, who believed they had put his reign of terror to an end.
However in this bumper issue of the series, Dracula has enlisted allies to join him in his merciless quest for vengeance, including his mysterious niece Camilla, who is depicted on the eye-popping cover by Mike Collins.
As with the first issue of Dracula The Return: Cult of the White Worm, this new squarebound, 48 pages, prestige installment is packed with bonus features exclusive to Zoop, including text stories featuring new incarnations of classic monsters and pulp heroes re-imagined as if Bram Stoker had created them. Those who back the Zoop campaign will also be treated to a historic 9-page strip drawn by Eagle Award-winning artist David Hitchcock featuring Bram Stoker himself, revealing the true life inspiration for Dracula… and it’s not Vlad The Impaler as many believe, but someone much closer to Stoker, who he knew very well.
There is also a stunning selection of variant cover editions on offer featuring art by comic industry legend Mike Collins, David Hitchcock and comic industry newcomer Tony Blake, as well as the opportunity to meet Dacre Stoker, pledge for hand-drawn sketch covers, art commissions, and much more.
The campaign only runs for a few more days, so to be sure of getting your copy and indeed to get your name in the pages of the book as a supporter, check out the Zoop campaign here: https://zoop.gg/c/draculathereturn2
