Gothic Classics: Graphic Classics Volume 14 by Tom Pomplun .

Only 6 left in stock (more on the way). The book's introduction is a letter to Stoker by Mort Castle with a modest proposal for a new dramatic presentation of "Dracula" as a ballet (which makes sense to anybody who has seen Guy Maddin's "Dracula: Pages from a Virgin's Diary," which both Castle and I have done).

Reason for Reading: I'm working on reading the complete series.

I had to ILL this volume and was a little disappointed to see I received the 1st edition (now out of print) as a more recent 2nd edition has been updated. But beggars cant be choosers and I'm just appreciate of my library system that they are able to get hold of about 95% of the books and movies I request through them.

The publisher's website describes the changes in the second edition so I'm able to know how this one differs. First off, I have read Dracula twice and while I don't recall, I must have read a short story of 2 of Stoker's in the numerous anthologies I've read over the years. That said only one story in this book was familiar to me "The Judge's House".

This book has some fun with Dracula, starting with an introductory letter to Mr. Stoker entreating him to put his book into ballet form (which it has been). Then there is a graphic adaption of Dracula's voyage across the sea, this was not very impressive, a Dracula Gallery consisting of art illustrating a quote from the book. Lovely art but again not so impressive and finally a supposed Vampire's Guide written by Van Helsing, comic and cute. These Dracula parts of vol. 1 have been removed, except the Vampire Guide, and replaced in vol. 2 by a full graphic adaptation of the novel. For this reason if I came across the second edition, I would read it for this alone. The rest of the two books are the same minus two small items. Lair of the White Worm, Torture Tower, The Judge's House and The Bridal of Death have all been graphically adapted. I absolutely adored Lair of the White Worm and The Judges House. Torture Tower was good, quite Poe-esque but The Bridal of Death was strange. The Wondrous Child has been presented differently, as an edited short story with several illustrations. I don't mind reading a book of illustrated short stories but I'm not impressed with editing them and it really had no place here in a graphic novel, besides they kept this story, while deleting The Funeral Party and The Duelists also written as a short story, and I would have rather have had them keep the much more sinister and creepy Duelists.

I enjoyed all the artwork. Done in black and white it suits the macabre nature of the stories. There are many artistic styles presented but they are not so far apart that they mesh together nicely, coming together in a nice cohesive. I didn't even mind J.B. Bonivert's artwork this time, though I still don't care for it! Otherwise well-done and I am now a big fan of Stoker and must make sure I read more of him. His short stories are comparable to Poe. 3.5/5

Like Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker is considered to be a one-hit wonder in the world of literature. Of course when you are talking about novels like "Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus" and "Dracula," that is enough to establish your literary immortality. Both authors did write other works, and while Stoker does not have anything else in his literary resume as good as Shelley's novel "The Last Man," overall his writing output was superior. "Lair of the White Worm," his last novel, written fourteen years after "Dracula," is the centerpiece of "Graphic Classics, Volume 7: Bram Stoker," but to no one's surprise his vampire count pops up in a number of pieces as well.

"Lair of the White Worm" is illustrated by Rico Schacherl and adapted by Tom Pomplum in 32 pages. Adam Salton arrives from Australia to meet with his great uncle Richard as the last surviving members of the Salton family. Adam travels to the old kingdom of Mercia in the heart of ancient Britain where strange things start happening. For example, snakes quickly crawl away from Lady Arabella March but later a mongoose attacks her. Eventually we get to the well by which the legendary White Worm came and went, and Lady Arabella has an even stranger encounter with a mongoose. Eventually Adam figures out what is going on and the goal becomes to destroy the titular creature. Do not think that the cover painting by Glenn Barr gives an indication of what the artwork is like for "Liar of the White Worm" because Schacherl's work is a lot more cartoonish. But the adaptation is solid and does a more serviceable job than the Ken Russell movie version.

"Dracula" pops up in a variety of ways in this collection. The book's introduction is a letter to Stoker by Mort Castle with a modest proposal for a new dramatic presentation of "Dracula" as a ballet (which makes sense to anybody who has seen Guy Maddin's "Dracula: Pages from a Virgin's Diary," which both Castle and I have done). "Dracula's Voyage: An Excerpts from Dracula by Bram Stoker," adapted by John W. Pierard, retells the story of the journey of the "Demeter" that brought the count from Varna to Whitby. The black & white illustrations are more white than black, which is an interesting approach, and if Pierard is thinking about doing the entire novel that would be fine. "The Dracula Gallery" has a dozen one-page illustrations based on the novel displaying a wide variety of drawing styles. Those by Michael Manning, Jeff Gather, Lisa K. Weber, Todd Schorr, and Todd Lovering stand out from the others. Then there is "Professor Abraham Van Helsing's Vampire Hunter's Guide," freely adapted by Tom Pomplun and illustrated by Hunt Emerson to humorous effect.

The rest of the volume is an interesting variety of approaches and visual styles. "Torture Tower," adapted from Stoker's "The Squaw" by Onsmith Jeremi, uses a dozen panels per page to tell the story of a man on his honeymoon in Germany who makes the mistake of killing a kitten (think E.C.'s "Tales from the Crypt"). "The Wondrous Child" is a fanciful fable by Stoker where the text has been edited down and there are a half dozen illustrations by Evert Geradts. "The Funeral Party" is a very short story by Stoker on one page with a Richard Sala illustration opposite. "The Dualists" is another edited text story, this time illustrated by Lesley Reppeteaux, which also evidences Stoker's grim sense of humor. By the time you get through these you will definitely be revising your estimation of Stoker as a one-hit wonder.

The final selection of stories gets us back to conventional comic book presentations. Artistically "The Judge's House," adapted by Gerry Alanguilan, is the most effective. I liked his close-up of the rat steadily glaring at our hero with baleful eyes; for that matter, I like the eyes of the judge and the ill-fated hero on the last couple of pages of the story. "The Bridal of Death," an excerpt from "The Jewel of Seven Stars," is adapted and illustrated by J. B. Bonivert, with an almost art deco style that seems rather ill suited to Stoker's story but which is certainly striking.

Tom Pomplun's name pops up a lot in this volume because he is the designer, editor and publisher of "Graphic Classics" (he specifically edited down the text stories presented herein). You can find "Graphic Classics" devoted to the works of H.P. Lovecraft, Jack London, Ambrose Bierce, H.G Wells, Arthur Conan Doyle, and O. Henry. This venture has been successful enough that a revised and expanded second edition of "Graphic Classics: Edgar Allan Poe" has been released. There are few recognizable names (e.g., Richard Corden, Gahan Wilson), involved in these retellings, but you will see some of the names in this volume in others and will certainly come to have your favorites. I look forward to more of these volumes, especially if we get to the likes of Arthur Machen, Clark Ashton Smith, and Robert Bloch that I was read in my formative years.

"Graphic Classics: Bram Stoker" serves up an excellent collection of illustrated stories by horror Grandmaster Bram Stoker. Each tale is either fully illustrated, comic book style, or text and page combined. All of the illustrations are in black and white, and feature a wide variety of styles and flair. This is definitely not the typical art you would find in a DC or Marvel comic, but is much more "arty."
There is plenty of "Dracula," Stoker's number one claim to fame, but there is also enough of his other works to let us know that he wrote more than one novel.
"Lair of the White Worm" is a great tale of jolly, haunted England and the monsters that haunt its green and pleasant land. A comic book style tale, with a Victorian flair in style.
"Torture Tower" shows the danger of being a loud-mouthed American tourist in Nuremberg. Comic book style.
"The Wondrous Child" is illustrated text, with a flight of fancy and a trip to fairy land.
"The Funeral Party" is a one-page illustrated text. Excellent dark humor.
"Dracula's Voyage" is a scratchy rendition of the first few chapters of "Dracula." Very well done.
"The Dracula Gallery" has artists taking a snatch of text as inspiration, then creating a page.
"Vampire's Hunter Guide" is a combination of Van Helsing's text and semi-humorous drawings.
"The Dualists" is an illustrated text piece of two friends and their passion. By far the most gruesome of the lot.
"The Judge's House" is comic book style, a haunted house story.
"The Bridal of Death" is adapted from "The Jewel of Seven Stars." A mummy tale.
