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.
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.Read more ›
