Review: Dracula vs. Robin Hood vs. Jekyll and Hyde #1-2

…Oh my!

The problem with ‘Dracula vs. Robin Hood vs. Jekyll and Hyde #1-2’ is how does one review it? We can all agree that the title says it all in terms of plot, but it’s the kind of story that too much thinking and too much analysis can kill it.

In terms of the plot, there’s certainly a B-movie feel to it, with little to no subtlety. Events move at a break-neck speed and it makes sure to have fun along the way. It may function as a guilty pleasure and some of the more random plot elements take advantage of the outlandish subject matter. A slight problem, the humour can fall a little short. For an outlandish premise, it feels a little safe or organised, to the point when something random happens, it ends up feeling contrived.

The art certainly knows the feel it’s going for and is appropriate to the story. It does, however, have a small dose of the ‘extreme’ 90s which might bring up some old war wounds. There is unfortunately, an issue with how the female characters are presented. The aim is shallow fun, certainly, but maybe fanservice-inducing cardboard cut-outs wasn’t the way to go.

All in all, ‘Dracula vs. Robin Hood vs. Jekyll and Hyde’ is pretty much what you would expect. It’s not an award winning piece of literature, but that’s obviously not what it wants to be. It’s certainly possible that people will enjoy this; they will have to make sure to take off their ‘intellectual’ hat that day.

‘Dracula vs. Robin Hood vs. Jekyll and Hyde #1-2’ is published by Mohawk Media and is available on Graphicly.
