    In this Elseworlds tale the Dark Knight Detective matches wits and brawn against one of the most dangerous adversaries in literature. A plague of the undead is sweeping across the city and the police are powerless to stop it. Dracula has come to Gotham, and the streets will run red with the blood of its citizens unless Batman can find a way to defeat this legendary foe.

    In Gotham City, there have been many killings. The Batman goes out to investigate, but only finds a corpse with its thoat cut open. But one night, he is successful, and finds a vampire sucking the blood out of the corpse. He attacks, but is beaten. At home, Bruce each night is visited by a woman with her mouth covered in blood and he soon discovers that he is much faster and stronger before. He goes again and follows a vampire into its nest, where he finds literally millions. He beats as many as he can until he sees a giant bat- Dracula! He beats Dracula, but did not kill him and is taken in by a woman, Tanya. This is the woman that visited him in his dreams and she is a vampire. They set up a trap in the Manor and kill nearly all the vampires, including Tanya. Dracula kidnaps Gordon and the Batman finds him. Batman turns into a vampire and a huge arial battle takes place, ending with Dracula landing on a spike. It ends with the Batman declaring that Bruce Wayne is dead, but the Batman shall live forever

    I've never like vampires, but this is great. 0

    Even though i'm not a fan of vampiric action (which i've never considered action... Drama will probably do) I do cherish this piece of work, it's edited by genius Denny O'Neil and superbly written by Doug Moench, this guy knows how to create an extemely believable version of a Bruce Wayne who feels his own body succumbing to a new addiction, blood-driven after a woman named Tanya appeared several times in his sleep and did bite him. This was sort a ritual and they were bound by something larger ...
