This week saw the release of issue 2 of Dracula: The Company of Monsters, Boom! Studios' new ongoing about corporate bloodsuckers versus literal ones. Story by Kurt Busiek and Daryl Gregory, art by Scott Godlewski.

After much difficulty, our protagonist Evan has managed to resurrect the Impaler Prince, a.k.a. Dracula. Next step: Get the secrets of the Scholomance out of him.

There IS some inherent sensuality and romanticism in the Dracula story, but everything these days seems to whoosh right past the point and zero in on that.

I always got more of a rapist vibe than any kind of romantic sensuality from Dracula.

Well, it's VICTORIAN "romantic sensuality."

So, er, yes. Victorian "romance"... kinda... was creepy sometimes.

...Ironically, Twilight firmly held on to that while ENTIRELY missing the point that it was kinda creepy.

Oh well.

And then it references better novels that didn't miss that point and used it for creepiness as counterparts to the romance.
