Masters of the macabre Marv Wolfman and Gene Colan continue their GHASTLY run of books with this excellent entry in the TOMB OF DRACULA series. After a herky-jerky start in the first ESSENTIAL volume, the book really hits its stride with some excellent storylines and the introduction of some key supporting characters, most notably Dracula's future bride Domini and the nebbish writer Harold H. Harold. (The H. stands for Harold)

Harold Harold Harold is a surprisingly vital shot in the arm to an alr

As with the 1st volume, good stuff! Art is great, as is the writing. A lot of reading, but that's ok with me.
Love it when Dracula calls someone a "Dolt"! HA!
Doctor Strange pops up here. And Dracula;a comes to America!!!

When the Comics Code restrictions on horror were loosened in the 1970s, DC primarily went in for horror anthology comics, while Marvel Comics based entire series around horrific heroes and villains. One of these was the classic (and public domain) character of Vlad Tepes, aka Count Dracula.

This series revealed that Bram Stoker’s book (highly recommended if you haven’t read it, by the way) was highly fictionalized, and Dracula had not in fact finally died at the end of it, only being very inconve

Entertaining Dracula stories. Some of the highlights include a showdown between one of the chief vampire hunters, Quincy Harker versus Dracula. Another storyline featured Dracula relocating to Boston to fight Dr. Sun, an incredibly ridiculous villain that Wolfman and Colan make menacing despite the utter absurdity of the character. This book also features a fight between Dracula and Doctor Strange. This is a nice touch, as this is the first time in the series that Dracula interacts with the grea ...more
This b/w volume collects issues # 26–49 of Marv Wolfman's and Gene Colan's Tomb of Dracula as well as Giant-Size Dracula # 2–5 and Doctor Strange # 14. Continuing from the end of volume 1, we continue to follow the strange adventures of what may well be one of Marvel Comics' best conceived villains (and paradoxically at the same time protagonist) during the 70s. With roots and references to Bram Stoker's 19th century novel , Marvel's Dracula was, and remains, one of the most fascinating and inte ...more
Reprints Tomb of Dracula #26-49, Giant-Size Dracula #2-5, and Dr. Strange #14. Frank Drake, Rachel Van Helsing, Quincy Harker, Hannibal King, and Blade battle Dracula and his forces. Tomb of Dracula was the best of the Marvel horror from the 1970s and had the most developed story, mostly because of the supporting cast and more variety with the characters.

I grew up reading TOD, and having the issues all collected was a wonderful way to revisit one of the fun parts of my youth. While some of the issues are pretty formlua-riffic, I enjoyed reading this several times now and will reread it again.

Marvel Comics did a good take on the Dracula legend in this comic series. The awesome Gene Colan art was perfect for the story. Recommended.
