J. Sheridan Le Fanu's classic vampire tale of desire, presented with lush illustrations by one of comics' finest artists Before Edward and Bella, before Lestat and Louis, even before Dracula and Mina, there was the tale of Carmilla and Laura. Living with her widowed father in a dreary estate in the woods of Styria, Laura has longed to have a friend with whom she can confide; a friend to bring some excitement to the overbearing serenity of her pastoral lifestyle.And then Carmilla enters her life. Left by her mother in the care of Laura's father, Carmilla is young, beautiful, playful-everything Laura had hoped to find in a companion. In fact, the lonely girl is so thrilled to have a new friend that she is willing to overlook the dark-haired beauty's strange actions...which include a disturbing, growing obsession for her lovely hostess.Carmilla, it seems, desires more than just friendship from Laura....Featuring six black-and-white illustrations by comics artist Eliseu Gouveia, this volume includes the bonus Le Fanu tale, "Strange Event in the Life of Schalken the Painter."
