Description

In this wordless, full-color collection of satiric short comics stories, an internationally acclaimed cartoonist chronicles the waning days of the most famous vampire of them all. Brutally funny satirical misadventures befall the hapless eponymous antihero. Literally defanged, the protagonist’s glory days are long behind him and other, more sinister villains are sickening and draining the life out of the villagers far more than one creature of the night ever could. Plus a fascinating 17-page sketchbook and four pages of backstory and Breccia biography.

This is the first painted, full-color entry in Fantagraphics’ artist-focused Alberto Breccia Library, and the atmospheric palette adds mood and dimension. It also includes a sketchbook showing the artist’s process.

Dracula has no co-author, and so Breccia’s carnivalesque vision is as pure Breccia as it gets. Created during the last of a succession of Argentine military dictatorships (1982-1983), this series of short comics stories ran in Spain’s Comix Internacional periodical in 1984. The moral purpose of Breccia’s expressionistic art style is made explicit; he shows that every ounce of his grotesque, bloated characters’ flesh and blood has been cruelly extracted from the less fortunate.
