Tomb of Dracula #6 - Neal Adams cover

Neal Adams
Tomb of Dracula v1 #6, 1973 - The title character leans over his victim, only to be startled by a monstrosity. Neal Adams' superb drawing is a tad looser than his other bronze age covers for Marvel. The inks suggest another hand, perhaps frequent collaborator Dick Giordano. Curiously, the lighting on the figures is inconsistent, with the monster lit from below, Dracula from the right and the woman not at all. Despite that small distraction, Adams does an aesthetically pleasing job overall. Other artists in this issue include Gene Colan and Tom Palmer. This is number 3 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.
