Webcomic #006d: Dracula Sequel?


"There is an 'official' sequel to Brainnn...by a relative of Bram Brainnn...!!!" announces the zombie in an orange nightshirt.

"That is horrible.  Blah.  Just because you have the last name Stoker...  Blah," protests an angry Vampire Lord.

"You're reading the brainnn...right now, aren't you, my Brainnn...???" inquires the clever zombie.

"No, I am not," denies the vampire.  "Do not be silly," he admonishes his servant.  "I am listening to the audiobook."

Apparently, this "official" sequel (Dracula the Un-Dead by Dacre Stoker and Ian Holt) has received a lot of bad reviews by Amazon.com users, but I have a few factors on my side:  (1) I'm not using up my eyesight to read the pages, (2) Simon Prebble (if I caught his name correctly) is a good reader, and (3) this audiobook was borrowed from my local library.

Support your local library, folks.  If you don't have one, go to Gutenberg (or your country's open-source, public domain equivalent) for text and to LibriVox for audio.  Both are free.
