Celebrating Dracula, Part One

In May of 1897, Bram Stoker's novel "Dracula" was first published. It went on to popularize vampires and become one of the most adapted books ever. Counting the numerous spin-offs, Dracula may well be the most written-about figure in all of pop culture.

This is the first in a series of posts presenting artist visions of the King of Vampires. This week's selection are all interpretations of Dracula as viewed through the editorial lens of Marvel Comics.

  1. Dracula made Twilight cool. There have been so many renditions of him, that I wouldn't even know where to start. It's amazing that a figure so old can still have so much popularity today.


  2. This is where I confess to knowing virtually nothing about the "Twilight" books or movies. I didn't even know Dracula was a character in them!
