Variety Ad!

Apparently, this double-feature pairing of I Was a Teenage Frankenstein with Blood of Dracula did all right... probably mostly due to the drive-in crowd, I'm guessing!

Psycho Magazine #19!

2013_4_019.jpg

Apparently the editors of this magazine didn't figure that their readers were that familiar with Stoker's novel?

X-Men Annual 6 Cover!

1951_4_06.jpg

Yes, Marvel Comics didn't just use Dracula in "Tomb of Dracula" -- he appeared in a few issues of X-Men, as well, trying to turn Storm into a vampiress!

Dracula also encountered the likes of Spider-Man and Doctor Strange in his Marvel career... and he even created other vampires who fought characters like Captain America, below:

Not a lot of difference between this and the US poster, is there?

There were a few 8mm releases of Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, each with different box art... but I have no idea if they featured different scenes or not!

Ah, here's the Dracula adaptation I referred to not long ago, with the Dell Dracula comic. Apparently, this sold very well!

Nice art on this... almost looks like Neal Adams, or maybe Dick Giordano's work!

Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein Still!

acmeetfrank_still.JPG

Maybe I just missed the reference every time I've seen this classic movie, but I've always wondered what happened between "House of Dracula" and "Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein" so that Dracula gained control of the Frankenstein Monster? Is there a "missing movie" in between these, perhaps "House of the Wolf Man" or something like that?

Dell Comics' Dracula!

Often included in any discussion about the worst comics ever made, Dracula was one of three titles that Dell Comics came out with that they hoped would exploit the success of their movie adaptation comics of monster movies combined with the popularity of superheroes! So, they took the Frankenstein Monster, the Wolf Man (renamed Werewolf) and Dracula, and turned them into superheroes!

They are just as awful as you could imagine... but if you find a copy of one of them cheap, it's kind of worth buying just to see how bad professionally-made comics can get!

I really should get around to watching this some day... I'm sure it's even weirder than I can imagine!
