Vampyre: The Terrifying Lost Journal of Dr. Cornelius Van Helsing

by M. J. Knight Illustrated by Gary Blythe, Mike Peterkin, Philip Jacobs

Vampyre! The name alone strikes terror into the hearts of most mortals . . . "but not Dr. Cornelius Van Helsing"— a doctor by profession but secretly a vampyre expert and hunter extraordinaire. Lucky for us, he recorded everything he discovered about the hideous undead in his nineteenth-century journal . . . or "did" he? His trusted companion Gustav deWolff has a slightly different story to tell. So, was Van Helsing a friend or foe to vampyres after all? Only you can decide. But beware, lest you draw the attention of a mysterious dark prince from Transylvania.

This lavish, highly interactive, and deliciously spooky book features everything you "never" wanted to know about vampyres! Take a look inside (if you dare) and discover creepy evidence of true gothic horror— foldout maps, booklets of vampyre myths and lore, Dr. Van Helsing's private letters, pull-tab revelations, heat-sensitive images and much more!
