4.0 out of 5 stars A fight to the finish! 31 Dec 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I first heard about this I thought it would be ridiculous and awful. Boy was I wrong. The art work is great and the plot is brilliant and original.

The story starts during the time of the crusades with a mortal Count Dracula,leading his troops to victory against the armies of Turkey, before being defeated and killed by Apocalypse.Centuries later, in victorian London Dracula is back and begins murdering and turning Apocalypse's followers into vampires in order to draw Apocalypse out for a final confrontation.

This is a superb blend of horror, science fiction and adventure which draws upon the rich histories of both characters to deliver an intense, fast paced and thrilling story.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gods and vampires 21 Jun 2012
By Sam Quixote TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Set in the late 19th century in England, "someone" is draining the blood of the acolytes of Apocalypse. The title pretty much says it all as Dracula and Apocalypse have an argy-bargy in Victorian England.

Frank Tieri writes a fun, silly story of two villains whose immortality means that their grudges last centuries until they can no longer contain their slighted egos. I'd like to say that Apocalypse and Dracula having a fight is the unstoppable force meets the immovable object but Dracula is no Hulk and there is a clear victor (it's who you'd expect).

Like all "Vs" titles, this book is no great shakes intellectually but having never read an Apocalypse book, it was interesting to see his extraordinary powers manifest and take on that most popular of archetypes today, the vampire.

Clayton Henry does a decent job with the art, it's nothing ground-breaking but suits the story down to the ground, and Jae Lee throws in some excellent cover art too.

"X-Men: Apocalypse vs. Dracula" is a fun 4-shot comic book of two interesting villains having a dust-up with some decent art. Diverting and fairly entertaining.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dumb, stupid, fun 20 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback
Well, what can I say? If you're reading an X-Men comic called "Apocalypse vs. Dracula", you should already know what sort of thing to expect. It's as dumb as pointless as you had expected, and about as fun as you could reasonably expect. Frank Tieri does a workable job of bringing together these two villains that nobody ever asked to see fight each other, in a story that sheds some relatively interesting light on Apocalypse's past in the process. It's by no means bad, but not especially good either. It gets the job done, and is reasonably fun. The art is pretty good, and it's quite amusing to see Apocalypse in an almost protagonist-like role in this story. If you're particularly interested in the character of Apocalypse, then it's worth a read if you can borrow it or get it cheap. If not, then don't bother.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun and forgettable 31 Aug 2009
By Kid Kyoto - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Dracula, legendary lord of the Vampires. Apocalypse, immortal mutant menace. What happens when they meet in Victorian England?

This book introduces some interesting ideas including a clan of Apocalypse descendants who inherit some of his power and tells a fairly straightforward story of battles between these two immortal foes. It isn't profound, it isn't particularly original. And it's far from essential. But it is fun.

I would not pay cover price for it but if you find a cheap copy it's worth a read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brutal and Fun. 20 May 2009
By Daniel J. Mooney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What grabbed me about this graphic novel was the title. Of all the VS team-ups this ranks near the top of the odd category , along with Tarzan Vs. Predator. I grabbed it for novelty's sake, not expecting much, and found myself pleasantly surprised, as I was with Robocop Vs. Terminator.

Here we have Tieri doing what he does best; Working with two sets of villainous characters, out to destroy each other. There are no heroes here; at best the characters are morally grey. The plot revolves around the Clan Akabari (who are the mortal descendants of the immortal Apocalypse), and their dealings with both Apocalypse and Dracula. Tieri writes each of the major players are written spot on, based on their past history. It's a brutal tale, filled with a few twist and betrayals, and certainly I had fun with it.

4 issues doesn't give you the most amount of time to work with the material, but I feel a lot was covered in the space given. It isn't the greatest story, but it is fun and unapologetic. If you understand the type of story you are buying, then you will not be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars I purchased this book because I'm a Dracula fan... I became an Apocalypse fan! 17 Sep 2008
By J.S. Hicks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was not the best Dracula series Marvel has done. In fact, as a Dracula series it ranks near the bottom. However, since I'm not an X-Men reader I didn't know that much about Apocalypse but in this series I became a fan of the character.

Apocalypse has a complex history. This story takes place in the 1800's and the Dracula is not all that true to his Marvel history. The art is a little spotty also.

Still, it was a quick read and the story wasn't that bad (mainly because of Apocalypse) but unless you're a Marvel Dracula completest, you can skip this one.
4.0 out of 5 stars An Entertaining Tale Of A Clash Between Two Deadly Entities 16 Jun 2014
By Ron Price - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I greatly enjoyed this story. What an entertaining tale of a clash between two giant entities of terror. If you are a fan of either Apocalypse or Dracula, you will love this hidden story in the Marvel Universe timeline. I read the book very quickly because I was intrigued by its Dark plot line and wondered what would happen next. The art in this book is great as well. I was not disappointed.
