Diana's Grove has been the source of mystery and fear since ancient times and now something is stirring there again. Newcomer, Australian, Adam Salton, encounters the owner of the grove, the manipulative and seductive Lady Arabella whose beauty and strange sinuous movements both attract and repulse him. Meanwhile, the woman he loves is threatened by another man's descent into insanity and his indomitable will. As events build to a climax, who will triumph in the war between humankind and the gigantic supernatural beast that lurks below? Based on Bram stoker's book, this graphic novel is drawn using Ri Largo's 'Dogma Drawing', which gives it a colourful, dynamic, and energetic pace from the first to the last page.

About the Author:

Abraham (Bram) Stoker was an Irish writer, best known for his Gothic classic Dracula, which continues to influence horror writers and fans more than 100 years after it was first published. Educated at Trinity College, Dublin, in science, mathematics, oratory, history, and composition, Stoker' s writing was greatly influenced by his father' s interest in theatre and his mother' s gruesome stories about her childhood during the cholera epidemic in 1832. Although a published author of the novels Dracula, The Lady of the Shroud, and The Lair of the White Worm, and his work as part of the literary staff of The London Daily Telegraph, Stoker made his living as the personal assistant of actor Henry Irving and the business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London. Stoker died in 1912, leaving behind one of the most memorable horror characters ever created.
