Black and White Wednesday: "That Dracula May Live Again!" by Wolfman and Adams

Pullin' out the big guns today, Groove-ophiles! In Dracula Lives! #2 (April 1973) Marv Wolfman and Neal Adams (with "spiritual advising" by Archie Goodwin) turned the awesome origin of Dracula loose on fandom! I love the line in the contents page that calls "That Dracula May Live Again!", "The tale that Bram Stoker forgot--but Marvel didn't!" Leave it to Mighty Marvel to do what everyone else talked about doing--to show how the "real Dracula" (Vlad the Impaler) became the literary vampire Count Dracula. This is Wolfman and Adams in top form, baby! Are ya ready...?

  1. Bah! Typical anti-Dracula propaganda! But what more can be expected from a Wolfman? Just kidding! Nice story actually, although I have to ask, since I hardly read any Tomb of Dracula back in the day, was anything ever done with Dracula's orphaned son who was apparently raised by Gypsies?
