Ano Dracula #1 is coming on March 22 from Titan Comics. They’ve released some covers before, but now everyone has the chance to get a closer look at the interior art and lettering as well–and additional covers. The series presents an alternate history where Dracula won his skirmish with Van Helsing and company. In this world, Queen Victoria remarried in 1888, selecting none other than the infamous Count as her consort.
If you’re in or near London, you can also get the author to sign your copy. Kim Newman will be launching the title at the Phoenix Artist’s Club where “Guests will receive an exclusive signed Forbidden Planet / Jetpack Comics variant of Anno Dracula #1, created just for the event by Ben Oliver.” Not only will the author be there, so will artist Paul McCaffrey, editor David Leach, and host Chris Thompson, who will take part in a live Q & A.

Synopsis for Ano Dracula #1
1895. Prince Dracula has ruled Great Britain for ten years, spreading vampirism through every level of society. On the eve of Dracula’s Jubilee, radical forces gather to oppose the tyrant. Kate Reed, vampire journalist and free-thinker, takes a seat on the revolutionary Council of Seven Days, though she learns that the anarchist group harbors a traitor in its midst. The Grey Men, Dracula’s dreaded secret police, have been ordered to quash all resistance to the rule of the arch-vampire. With intrigue on all sides, the scene is set for an explosive addition to the Anno Dracula series.
