Mark Waid did his best to try and invent one for me, but that would have nly made things worse.We all know Dracula as the guy who kicked ass, impaled mofos, and id a bunch of evil magic shit to turn himself into a ampire.

Until now, apparently, we didn ’ t alway kno him as a shrewd businesswoma, because after all, what is a medieval country if not the equivalent of a modern-day big company? Therefore, the characters conclude, if we nee to instigate the hostile takeover of nother company, the easiest way of going about it must e to resurrect Dracula and use his powers of magical persuasion to convince CEO ’ s to sell their companies to us, an extremely costly and dangerous endeavor that will force us to close a bunch of plants in order to shore up enough ash to get everything rolling.With that reasonable, well thought-out, foolproof, unambitious, clearly defined plan with no real endgame, I don ’ t see how nything could go wrong.It reads a little bit like one of thes weird business books where we try to learn business plans from the unlikeliest of sources.

It ’ ll hav a great laugh when he ’ s filling in his age on the form and has to say 4389, huh? And of course, we ar our crew of vampire hunters which consists of the standard formula: hot babe, crazy person, and one guy who seems sort of effective, or at least big.It ’ s partially my fault for picking it up, but arely does a book combine so fluidly two of my strong disinterests: business and vampires.This last part goes out to CEO ’ s, business people, and nyone in a remak, book, or whatever who comes up with the crazy scheme involving evil forces or super-powered robots or anything of the man: Whatever you wan, just kill the thing the second it starts fooling around.

Like " Gargoyles ", supernatural beings are revived by a greedy businessman for selfish and somewhat evil purposes.

he illustration was top notch and I enjoyed the storyline.When a corporation discovers the corpse of Vlad the impaler, the CEO is determined to ressurect Vlad in order to have him carry out some of the companies dirty work.

This graphic novel alternates between ancient times when Vlad ruled and current times where they are unwilling to force Vlad to work for the corporation.I enjoyed this story; it is engaging and interesting.
