Heya! I'm a parent who really wants to see my kids enjoy reading and comics the way I did as a child. This book delivers on all fronts, so I took time out to do a quick video review.

Hope you enjoy it!

Format: Hardcover
Lots of kids have a special interest, whether it's baseball or stamp collecting. For Sam, it's scary movies, and Dracula is his favorite character of all. So naturally, when Halloween comes around, Sam knows which costume he wants--the one with the cape and fangs. But then he spots something even more awesome: A detailed Dracula figure. His grandmother suggests he write to Santa Claus to ask for it, but Sam has a better idea: He writes to Dracula and asks if he can become a real vampire for Halloween.

Dracula doesn't get much mail, so when he reads Sam's letter, he decides to respond personally. He arrives at Sam's house on Halloween night, hypnotizes Sam's grandmother, and barges into Sam's room (where Sam is busy sulking because he's not allowed to go out on his own). As the two go for a walk under a full moon, Dracula explains exactly what being a vampire entails--hanging upside-down like a bat, sleeping in a coffin, avoiding sunlight. Sam reacts to each of Dracula's statements with a comment of his own, wondering, for instance, how Dracula can get ready in the morning if he can't see himself in the mirror.

When Dracula reveals that blood, not pizza, is the staple of a vampire's diet, Sam gets grossed out and starts to rethink his ambition. A life without hamburgers, tacos, and root beer floats, not to mention his favorite food, cheese, is the deal-breaker for Sam. He and Dracula agree to be friends, and Dracula drops him off at home, turns into a bat, and heads back to Transylvania. And by Christmas, Sam has found someone else to write to: Frankenstein.

The fun in this comic comes from Sam and Dracula comparing a vampire's lifestyle to a little kid's and comparing the gothic conventions of horror movies to the reality of a little boy's life.

This is the first in a new line of books from Image Comics aimed at kids. I wasn't quite sure why they wanted to break into this market but they sure hit it out of the park on this first go. Dear Dracula is a kids book that does what all great children's books should do. It doesn't talk down to its target audience (kids) and it's written (and illustrated)so that adults enjoy it as well. In fact I don't have any children yet and bought this copy just for myself. I hope to see more from this line and these creators.
