This new graphic novel immediately captures the spirit of the original 70's television show. Barnabas and Dr. Julia Hoffman are still seeking a cure for his vampirism. Then, the witch Angelique returns, in spirit form, and begins possessing family members--until she's able to return in the flesh. She, of course, wants to make Barnabas' unlife hell. There's also werewolf Quentin Collins, who not only fights the witch but gets into a tooth and claw tussle with Barnabas. If you felt a bit let down by the recent Tim Burton directed film version pick up this book. It will make you excited about Dark Shadows again.
