Euan’s bold linework lends itself brilliantly to the graphic novel style storytelling and gives their Crazy Classics Teen Series a fresh and contemporary feel.
Login: Dracula, written by Peter Flynn, reinvents the famous vampire created by Bram Stoker. Now DJ Vlad is the new king of the night and he preys on his victims using social network sites. Euan’s characters and scenes add intense drama to the story as it unfolds.
