Elle Collins reviews Drac #2 over at ComicsRiot: 

Dracula the Unconquered #2 by Chris Sims and Steve Downer (Action Age)
I love Dracula (he’s my second favorite vampire), but I think Chris Sims loves him more (maybe not quite as much as he loves Batman, but that’s a high bar). This book is easily my favorite take on the character in a decade or two. Respect for the source material is adeptly balanced against a whole new narrative direction and a tone that’s humorous without slipping into parody. Also Steve Downer’s art is just gorgeous. I understand self-publishing is rough, but I do hope we don’t have to wait too long for issue #3, because this series is awesome. If you haven’t read it yet, you can buy the first two issues for a dollar apiece.

Thanks, Elle! And as for that whole “second-favorite” thing, don’t worry. Carmilla shows up in #4.
