In this haunting and sophisticated series, Renfield tells a tale of madness as it delves into the story of the bug-eating prophet of Bram Stoker's Dracula. 

In the original novel, Renfield was the insane inmate who foretold the coming of the evil vampire and served somewhat as a disciple of Dracula. 

This story explores not only the relationship of Dracula and Renfield but the torment that Renfield felt as a man possessed by almost demonic forces. Impassioned with the zeal of a religious fanatic, Renfield struggles to grasp the overwhelming need to serve the darkness against his humanity. 

Staying true to the original story in chronological order and events, the comic story line focuses primarily prior to Dracula's actual arrival in England.

As Renfield is slowly being consumed by the madness because of the visions and voices that intrude upon his dreams and nightmares, he must try to understand the mysterious message that his "master" or "messiah" (Dracula) is asking of him.

Upon discovering that Dracula is offering him eternal life in exchange for servitude, Renfield comes to grasp that in order for a being like Dracula to live, others must die.


Review Blurbs on Renfield

"It is the rarest of gems in the publishing world; a truly classic tale in graphic format. Gary Reed's writing talent & creativity shine forth like a beacon on a dark foggy night & Galen Showman's art makes a perfectly balanced counterpoint that accents Reed's dark tale."---Independent Propaganda.

"...the gifted Gary Reed, whose talent for the macabre rivals that of H. P. Lovercraft and whose adept comic book storytelling matches that of Steve Niles. "
---BookLoons reviews

"Mature readers will come away spooked by this intelligent book and applaud Reed and Showman's approach to a familiar story told in an all-new way."-
--Graphic Novel Journal

"Reed is a very literary comics writer, one with a very sound base in much of the classic literature that inspired comics. That often helps give Reed's writing a real feeling of depth and power.."--Jason Sacks

"Renfield calls Dracula his master, but I must say that Gary Reed proves that he is the master of storytelling and Renfield proves it!"
