Spotlight On: Harker: The Graphic Novel Sequel to ‘Dracula’

Each week we’ll be turning the spotlight on one of the many quality graphic novels from our extensive back catalogue.

This week it’s the turn of Harker: The Graphic Novel Sequel to ‘Dracula’.

Although his body is destroyed, Dracula’s dark spirit survives, and only his last remaining “Bride of Dracula,” the Countess Dracule can avenge and save him – as she arrives in London to take brutal vengeance against the Hunters and their families.

With un-living allies including the late Renfield beside her, the Countess is ready for war. But her opposition is fragmented, with Seward in love again, yet addicted to morphine; Arthur distracted by visions of his dead love Lucy Westenra on a London street; Van Helsing haunted bu memories of his son; Mina finding herself align with Dracula in her dreams – and Jonathan visited by the ghost of Quincey Morris, warning him of dangers yet to come.

As the devious plans of the Vampire Countess and her allies come to pass, Harker and his friends must find strength to fight back from the brink of despair, taking on a quest that forces them through a variety of familiar locations including Purfleet, Piccadilly, Whitby, Munich, and ending with fire and blood on the Borgo Pass, the very place that Bram Stoker’s novel began.

Updated and re-released to celebrate the anniversary of the debut of Dracula in 1897, Harker is written by British writer Tony Lee (Doctor Who, Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, Spider-Man) and drawn/coloured by the acclaimed South African art team of Neil Van Antwerpen and Peter-David Douglas (Starship Troopers), this original graphic novel is a faithful and ‘in canon’ return for the original characters, set six months on from the Count’s grizzly death, and six months before the birth of Jonathan and Mina’s son, Quincey.

And for Vampire aficionados it has three introductions – one from noted Sherlock Holmes and Vampire scholar Leslie S. Klinger, author of The New Annotated Dracula, and two more from Ian Holt and Bram Stoker’s Great-Grand Nephew Dacré Stoker, authors of the official Dracula sequel, Dracula: The Un-Dead, as well as never seen before articles on both the Vampire and Bram Stoker by award winning and acclaimed Dracula historians Elizabeth Miller and Alexander Galant.

Markosia will be at Showmasters' LFCC from the 26th – 28th July at Olympia, London. Sam, our convention organiser, will be manning our table in the Comic Zone with some great books for you to browse and buy, titles you might not have seen before and, of course, some fantastic bargains. Writer/Editor GM Jordan will be around all weekend signing and will be happy to look at art portfolios and listen to pitch ideas.

Also at LFCC, Stephen Saleh, Tony Lee and Mariela Malova will be launching their stunning new Markosia book, Dark Lines of London. Last year the Ashcan edition sold out in two days and this is one of those books many people are hotly anticipating (at conventions and events we still get asked if we have copies of the ashcan and when the book will be finished). The creators will be signing the special edition hardback all weekend, while stocks last, and please be aware the hardback will only be available for a limited period of time.

Meanwhile, our EIC, Ian Sharman, will be at the stand for his Orang Utan Comics imprint, whish will be located on the main show floow. Stop by for a chat and check out his books.
