In short: don't read it unless you're a fan of the television series. It's adorable in its awfulness.

This is from Gold Key comics, released in the spring of 1970.
It's a 24 chapter 'novel', with the art work reprintd as well..
Great fun, though not very 'Deep'. Only two Regulars' from Dark Shadows are here-Barnabas and Angelique.(Who is not in it much)
Worth a look-and it has some great pictures of the cast, in the back of the book.

This is a modified reprint of a publication from Gold Key from 1970. Barnabas runs across someone who had been a ghost but is now real. They work to save a guy from the clutches of a witch in Salem. The people hate Barnabas because he is different from them (they don't know how different) and they plan to kill him. So he has to deal with the witch and the ugly mob, both.

The story is fairly good. There is also a section of photographs from Dark Shadows. The one thing the book did that I don't lik

Dark Shadows was a very popular Gothic soap opera in the late 60's and early 70's. It was very melodramatic and it featured the ever famous, Barnabas Collins. Dark Shadows had all sorts of supernatural creatures making an appearance such as vampires. witches, werewolves and more. This series has been off of television for quite some time. It spawned several books, films, and in the early 90's a short lived television comeback. In May of 2012, a Dark Shadows movie starring Johnny Depp and Michell ...more

Unless you've been sleeping the days away in a pine box, deep inside some dusty old cellar, you likely know that Tim Burton and Johnny Depp are bring Dark Shadows to the big screen in 2012. Given that Arneson's story takes place outside the main Dark Shadows storyline, at a time when Barnabas is no longer a vampire, it seems an odd choice to tie into Burton's movie, but it's still a wonderfully nostalgic look back at the origins of the franchise.

Over 40 years after it's original release as a Gol
I have an active confession to make: I sometimes like reading campy stories and watching TV shows that have come before my generation. I've marathoned episodes of "I Love Lucy", "Leave it to Beaver," "Lassie," the original "Fugitive" and "The Man from UNCLE" and even "Dragnet" (I blame one of my former high school teachers for Dragnet, though I did see the 80s movie with Dan Ackroyd and Tom Hanks).

Suffice to say, even with my love for old movies and T.V. shows, I've never heard of Dark Shadows.
