Dracula, Wolfman and Frankenstein Book and Record!

Here's a really neat item, especially if you're a monster fan AND a comic book fan, as I am! Power Records (a division of Peter Pan Records) produced this 33 1/3 RPM book and record set in the 1970s, and the book's art (as well as the cover art) was done by Neal Adams, perhaps best known for his work on The X-Men, Green Lantern/Green Arrow, The Avengers, Superman, and -- his best known work, I'm sure -- Batman, among many other characters. While the story itself isn't all that clever (descendant of Dr. Frankenstein and his fiancee, who's a werewolf, encounter Count Dracula, who forces Frankenstein to build him a monster slave, with the expected results), the art is great! But if you really, really want to hear it (it's never been released on CD), you can listen to it here! This site, the Power Records Blog, also has scans of the story pages.
