Writer of the graphic novel Kill All Monsters. Multifarious podcaster.
Having just read your review of DEAD & LOVING IT, one hopes you'll understand when I say that Mr Mel Brooks pops up in my 'mind's eye audio' as Van Helsing with surprising frequency; he's clearly playing the role for comedy, but given that The Good Professor is a charmingly-idiosyncratic academic to start with, that actually works really well. I will admit to being slightly disappointed that Mr Brooks didn't mine the novel for small moments of Black Comedy such as Count Dracula showing Mr Harker the door at his request and quite casually amusing himself with poor Jonathan's response to seeing a pack of slavering mind-controlled wolves between him and safety (Not to mention most of the bits with Mr Quincey P. Morris that don't involve him dying with tragic gallantry).
