Only he didn't realize ANOTHER vampire already beat him to it. Drawn to one another across continents and centuries by a mysterious force, both Vampirella and Bram Stoker's immortal monster find themselves sucked into a time-tossed epic of love, hate, death, and damnation. But can an epic built for one vampire possibly hold them both?

Collection Features:

• All 6 covers by Joseph Michael Linsner (Dawn)

• The classic Dracula tale, “New European,” by Alan Moore (Watchmen) and Gary Frank (Batman Earth One)
