Tomb of Dracula #4 - non-attributed Neal Adams cover

Tomb of Dracula v1 #4, 1972 - Not widely known, this early Tomb of Dracula cover was heavily reworked from a Neal Adams illustration. The two villagers are all that remain from the original, their stances and facial expressions consistent with the artist's style. The encroaching vampires and background were added by John Romita, presumably to satisfy the publisher's request (I have yet to see a scan of the original). Other artists in this issue include Gene Colan and Tom Palmer. This is number 2 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.
