I first came across the work of Louis Pecsi a couple of years ago and have returned to it many times since.
Admittedly, I didn't want to spend very much time with it at first and I was right to do so. I knew by his words
and by images he shared, that it was going to be something I would enjoy from the get-go. Once I finished the project I was working on, however, I dove right in!

Each page brilliantly reflects the story being told through images dark and macabre, together bringing to life a story that is rich with its own sort of beauty. As a horror fan, I'm eager to have a copy of my own to enjoy and I can't wait to what he creates after this.

The internet has become a great Godsend to the Society of Literature in that it can make an otherwise unsung talent finally be heard by the masses who eagerly await its coming. I am a child of this new medium of storytelling in that I have been somewhat successful in releasing three volumes of thoughts on my own favourite horror movies after doors had been constantly slammed in my face for years through disinterest by the mainstream powers-that-be. On the web, I can publish to my heart’s content and get my ramblings to the people who really matter, the fans. The people who really make or break a person who knows that he has talent. It takes a lot of work to produce a book and a lot of love, blood, sweat and tears, have to be poured generously into the mix – sometimes for very little in the way of recompense. I believe that Louis Pesci, the author/illustrator of Nosferatu; the Untold Origin, would agree whole-heartedly with me on that. Like another classic independent internet sensation, Theodore Trout’s Dracula, Lord of the Damned movie, Mr Pesci gives us a believable account of the rise and fall of the King of Vampires in comic-book form. And it is a real assault to the senses.
Beginning his tale in the 13th Century Europe, Mr Pesci delves deeply into this all-new origin for the most memorable vampire of our time. His illustrations are blended together with stark uses of golds, reds greens and blacks as he apes many scenic compositions from the classic seminal movie that he uses for inspiration, only to venture off on his own nightmarish tangent. The line drawings are deceptively naïve and work perfectly in the story he is putting forth as each panel, or splash, reverberates in our minds, not unlike the photography in the movie.

I am new to the graphic novel but not the publishing world since I am a Pulitzer Prize-nominated author with Random House. A friend recommended this book to me and I must say I was knocked off my feet. The story is mesmerizing and the graphics are breathtaking, page after page: Frankly, it casts a spell. The evening I read it I went to bed beautifully spooked like the child (and adult) in me ached to be. It transported me--as any great book does--to another world and faraway from routine daily life. READ IT, SEE IT and it will stay with you like a storm that blows you into keen awareness. I think this author is cutting edge and predict BIG things for him with this books and other to come!

I just finished reading Nosferatu Origins. I absolutely love this book. The artwork was like a beautiful nightmare come to life. The story pulled me in closer and closer page by page. I would love to see this graphic novel turned into a movie. The story will ensnare you like Nosferatu and you will love this book word for word.

Been a longtime, avid fan of horror and vampire/werewolf mythology,(seen hundreds of movies and read novels) on the subject since I was a kid. I enjoyed some and disliked others. I became very selective on my taste from the countless stories and countless plots on vampire stories. Everyone has their own ideas and perception on what should and should not be with the subject of vampire lore and other kinds of curses. Now I'm open minded to some fresh ideas for vampire stories but it is in my deep felt opinion that vampires should be realistic, sinister creepy and diabolical with touches of seductiveness but at the same time slightly monstrous. And as a rule, not all vampires are meant to be pretty, that is putting it more realistic. The problem I had with some vampire films and novels is that it has treated the vampire with glamor and too much flair and candy-coated fantasy to woo the women and men of the world. Not saying that vampires can't be seductive but the downside of the curse is never fully shown. It only gives the perception that it is not a curse but a fun and games, satire kind of life. The more realistic take on vampire stories are the ones I prefer. Reading, Anne Rice's Interview With A Vampire is a prime example of that which I appreciate, the protagonist main vampire character Louis, gives us a feel of being a vampire and the hellish price that comes with it. The bleak betrayal of a not so glamorous life as well as the downside of inhumanity and the dark morals of humanity. Very few films have captured that message but a good prime example can be found in the original(1922)silent film version of Nosferatu as well as the (1979) film remake. The 1979 remake, Count Orlok (played by a convincing Klaus Kinski), portrays vampirism with a sufferable, horrified affliction of the curse.Read more ›
