I am very intrigued by the idea for The Vampire Conspiracy graphic novel.
While Hollywood is still mining the world of older comics and graphic novels for new adaptation fodder to turn into bigger and badder movies, Marc Morgenstern and Adam Gorham have turned the process around by adapting 2005's Vampire Conspiracy into a brand new graphic novel.

I've yet to watch the movie, but flipping through the graphic novel, I can tell Adam Gorham's work is strong. For his first serious attempt at graphic storytelling, he already shows considerable aptitude for page layout and sequential pacing.
I can't wait to dive into this comic and then the movie. To get your own copy of the DVD and comic, visit www.vampireconspiracy.com
