Tomb of Dracula v2 #3 - Frank Miller art





Tomb of Dracula v2 #3, 1980 - Like many of Marvel's bronze age magazine covers, this one appeals blatantly to an older male audience. The same artistic team on the Tomb of Dracula comic, Gene Colan and Tom Palmer, contribute two excellently drawn stories in this issue. A text article on Lilith, daughter of Dracula, showcases some informative figure studies by Frank Miller (see interior page below). These loose sketches not only reveal some of his thought processes, but are visually appealing in their own right. Other artists in this issue include Jerry Bingham and Bob Larkin (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Tomb of Dracula magazine issues with Miller art and/or covers.

  1. Thank you for this! First time I'm seeing it.

    I was a nut for anything Miller was doing back then but I missed this - and I'm GLAD.

    It's so great to discover an old gem like this one decades later. I feel fifteen again.

    I really wish he still drew with this sort of consideration and care.
