About the series[edit]

Blood of the Innocent was one of the first American comic books to be published weekly over four weeks. It was written by Rickey Shanklin and Mark Wheatley, and drawn by Marc Hempel and Mark Wheatley, who had previously created the acclaimed science fiction comic Mars for First Comics. Blood of the Innocent was their first attempt at a horror comic. An epilogue for the series appears in the first (and only) Warp Graphics Annual along with other short stories by authors and artists then being published by Warp.

The series pitted Dracula against Jack the Ripper, who in this series is a psychotic Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence, in Victorian London.[2]

Film adaptation[edit]

Breck Eisner is set to direct the upcoming Hollywood film adaptation. Inferno Entertainment has acquired underlying rights to the series and is funding development and production of the feature, which is being co-produced with Circle of Confusion.[3]
