NSFW Cringe Anyone read the awful Castlevania comic book?

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

Apparently, this came out in 2005 but I just recently found out about it and picked it up. There were only five issues that made a short story arc that was... very interesting.

We start off with Christopher Belmont (who, I guess, is the protagonist of the first two Game Boy Games), who is getting married


To this woman (pictured center) who is Illyana Riktor:



Then Dracula gets resurrected looking like Dio from Jojo and generally starts wrecking shit:



With a few visual nods to the games but that's about it:


What makes things really awkward is that Dracula is constantly nude. He's never actually seen with clothing on. I guess they didn't want to have to figure out how a bat would transition into a man in a suit.


What's even MORE awkward, is that the comic references this directly:

The comic is pretty much littered with these strange sexual undertones that only someone incompetent at Konami could sign off on.


Anyway, thought I'd share this atrocity of gaming-related comics. Good for a laugh, at least. Thanks for reading my blog.

Yeah you wonder who signs off on these things, people who are told "make as much money as possible!" presumably.

Various depictions of Dracula could perhaps be described as having a seductive nature. Also, if you turn into a giant bat, I would asume your clothes are ripped off and wouldn't magically appear when transforming back so it's semi realistic in that sense. Never heard of this comic though so thanks for bringing it to my attention. I've learnt something today.

I mean....being that hilarious kinda redeems it though in a way. Also, why's Dracula look so young? He's usually portrayed as kind of a debonair, dapper older gentleman, it's weird to see him looking like some zombie pervert who just left a bikini coffee stand and decided to perv out on Belmont's lady.
