Looking for something to read when cooler weather arrives in the fall and it’s time to stay inside? Titan has your hookup with Kim Newman’s Anno Dracula: Johnny Alucard and a remastered edition of the cult graphic novel Razorjack by John Higgins.
Both books arrive in September – Johnny Alucard on the 6th, followed by Razorjack on the 17th.
Newman’s novel depicts an alternate fictional history where the heroes of Bram Stoker’s classic novel failed to defeat Dracula. Beginning in the 1970s on the set of Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula and concluding in the 1990s, Johnny Alucard explores a vampire overrun Hollywood, filled with a mix of real life personalities and iconic characters from film and literature.
Anno Dracula: Johnny Alucard Synopsis:
Kim Newman returns to one of the great bestselling vampire tales of the modern era. Considered alongside I Am Legend and Interview with the Vampire as one of the stand-out vampire stories of the last century – this brand-new novel is the first in over a decade from the remarkable and influential Anno Dracula series.
Newman’s dark and impish tale begins with a single question: What if Dracula had survived his encounters with Bram Stoker’s Dr. John Seward and enslaved Victorian England?
Fallen from grace and driven from the British Empire in previous installments, Dracula seems long gone. A relic of the past. Yet, when vampire boy Johnny Alucard descends upon America, stalking the streets of New York and Hollywood, haunting the lives of the rich and famous, from Sid and Nancy to Andy Warhol, Orson Welles, and Francis Ford Coppola, sinking his fangs ever deeper into the zeitgeist of 1980s America, it seems the past might not be dead after all.
As for Higgins’ remastered Razorjack, it features restored art, new dialogue, and two brand-new short stories.
When three students inadvertently create an opening into our dimension from an alternate universe known as The Twist, they become the focus for the evil death-bitch Razorjack. Maverick cops, Frame and Ross, are assigned a disturbing serial killer case which draws them into what is potentially the final battle between good and evil. Written and illustrated by John Higgins (Watchmen, Hellblazer, Judge Dredd), this collectors edition features exclusive artwork, commentary, and more!
