Dracula Everlasting is an original English language manga by Nunzio DeFilippis and Christina Weir (creators of Amazing Agent Luna), with art by Rhea Silvan. It tells the story of teen-aged Nicholas Harker, who after losing his parents to a car accident, learns he’s the heir to a vast family fortune. But this comes with a price as he learns the hard way that Dracula was based on a true story, and he’s descended from the Harkers of the story.
The manga's first volume is currently in print, with previews from that volume currently running at the official website and updating daily. Hence, there are spoilers on this page from the print volume for material that has not yet appeared online.
This OEL manga contains examples of:
- Anyone Can Die: Poor Detective McAllister.
- Bishonen: Nicholas and Mason definitely qualify.
- Grand Theft Me: The curse functions by having Dracula attempting to take over Nicholas.
- Gypsy Curse: Dracula’s gypsy allies bound his defeated spirit to the family lines of those who defeated him.
- Hippie Parents: Rayne Ambrose
- Literary Agent Hypothesis: Bran Stoker based the book on ‘actual events’, but had to change the ending at the behest of his publisher, leaving out the Gypsy Curse.
- The Renfield: Karl Renfield is the direct descendent of the original, along with his sons. Compared to the older three boys, Karl is almost normal looking. His youngest son, though, is a handsome young man, for which he gets harassed for by his brothers.
- Shoujo Demographic: Has a definite shojo look, though it does get Darker and Edgier than most examples.
- White Sheep: How the Renfields view the youngest brother, Mason, who is normal looking. On the other hand, ‘the runt’ may be the darkest and most devious of the boys.
