The Virgins Embrace cover

The StokerVerse begins here! Fans of Bram Stoker should be excited and so should comic fans who have not had the opportunity to read some of his books. The Virgin's Embrace kicks things off, with Bram Stoker's great-grand-nephew Darce working on a reimagining of the original 1893 story 'The Squaw'. And look at the cover! Brilliant work.

What makes this a must-read though is that it also contains the original text of 'The Squaw' before the reimagining in graphic novel form. Bits like that just add to the magic of it.

Check out the press release below, along with a link to purchase. A review will be coming!
