Anno Dracula – 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem is an enjoyable graphic novel.

I really liked the art-work. The art-work was so well done that there were several pages with no text at all because the images conveyed all the necessary information. I have zero artistic skill and am really impressed by people who illustrate graphic novels and the like. The illustrator(s) of Anno Dracula – 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem did a great job.

The story element of Anno Dracula – 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem is also hugely enjoyable. The book is filled with sheer madness. Imagine a world where Dracula is the Prince Consort and in charge of the British Empire? What a brilliant and sort of terrifying idea.

Anno Dracula – 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem is fantastic. Well worth a read for the illustrations alone.
