Bloody Business--Dracula: The Company of Monsters Volume #1
Kurt Busiek--famous for various comics such as the original Thunderbolts--brings us a tale of Dracula unlike one I've seen before, mixing vampires and business-mergers. This sounds interesting.
The comic starts off with some history about Vlad, and the company trying to bring him back, and before long we have a resurrected Dracula whom a powerful businessman has some plans for. The plot is interesting if a little odd with the whole, "Let's use magic to save our business and have a vampire do it!" reasoning, and the art is nice too, working for both the quiet and creepy parts and the more violent bits.
3.5 out of 5 stars.
Dracula: The Company of Monsters Vol. 1 (Dracula (Boom!)) should you want a fun tale.
