Gotham City is caught in a vortex of corruption and decay, and those who feed on blood and despair are about to suck any remaining life from her dying veins. All that stands against them is the Batman, their legendary companion in the darkness - the last line of defence between the innocent and the screaming chaos of mindless appetite. To combat this primeval threat, however, the Dark Knight must give up everything he holds dear, including life itself - for death is only the first step towards the final reckoning between good and evil...

Gotham City is plagued with crime and corruption in places high and low, but one man has taken a stand against evil of all forms: the dark avenger known as Batman.

When Dracula invades Gotham City, unleashing a vampire plague, Batman learns that all his powers of detection and reason are meaningless. Forced into an unholy alliance with a renegade pack of vampires, the Dark Knight becomes one of the undead - but Dracula is just the beginning, as Batman, fighting his newly dark nature, descends into true darkness in subsequent battles against some of his greatest enemies.

Batman: Vampire was originally printed as three separate tales and is better known to fans as the Batman and Dracula trilogy (Red Rain, Bloodstorm and Crimson Mist). The stories were originally printed in comic book form in 1991, 1994 and 1999.

This collection adds an interesting spin on the Batman universe, and any true fan of the Caped Crusader will find this graphic novel offers some nice touches and examines some insights to the characters that have never been explored before.
