The legend of Vlad the Impaler is the stuff of nightmares. The inspiration for the most iconic of monsters—Dracula—Vlad tortured and murdered thousands of victims. But what turned him into such a depraved killer? The truth lies in his teenage years, when Vlad and his brother Radu were held hostage by the Ottoman Empire. During this time, the brothers learned many things—archery, riding, the art of combat, matters of court…and how to stalk and slay vampires.
The Brothers Dracul is from writer Cullen Bunn, artist Mirko Colak, colors by Maria Santaolalla, and letterer Simon Bowland. It features two covers, one by Mirko Colak with Maria Santaolalla and another by Szymon Kudranski.
Final order cut off is this Monday with the release April 11.
