Tomb of Dracula #1 - Neal Adams cover

Neal Adams
Tomb of Dracula v1 #1, 1972 - This first issue begins Marvel's longest running bronze age horror title. Neal Adams' interpretation of Dracula adheres to the early film version by Bela Lugosi, but the character would evolve into its own Marvel look and feel. The theme of a vampire holding a female victim is a classic one, in this case accompanied by a medieval castle within the foggy moors. The inks are a bit rough and less defined than usual for the artist. Perhaps they were done by colleague Dick Giordano. Other artists in this issue include Gene Colan. This is number 1 of 3 Tomb of Dracula issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or Tomb of Dracula issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist or Top 10 Adams comics.
