Monster of the Day #1623

I don’t want to shock the heck out of everyone, but this is my favorite cover this week.

  • Beckoning Chasm

    Gene Colan and Tom Palmer–hard to beat that combination.

  • Gamera977

    When I first saw the guy in the trench-coat I was thinking flasher. But he’s a skeleton so hopefully he has nothing to flash… 8(

    BTW: Won’t sidetrack us today, I took a break and didn’t watch ‘Jaws IV’ last night….

  • Acethepug

    Absolutely, I can’t think of much in the way of bad Colan artwork, and he was perfect for Tomb.

  • Flangepart

    Just wondering…does Drac ever complain about how much those women weigh? And bigger gals…eh…they’d provide more ‘juice’, so to speak…would an anorexic be safer from him, unless he’s on a low fat diet?

  • Gamera977

    I don’t know if vampires choose victims based on weight but I have noticed, at least in Hammer films, that the more busty the young lady the more likely she’ll turn into vampire chow.

  • bgbear_rnh

    He could flash a bon . . .no I am not going to do it.

  • Rock Baker

    You’d think vampires would naturally avoid graveyards, what with all the crosses…

  • zombiewhacker

    A general question: was Dracula a good guy or a bad guy in this series?

    I owned only two Marvel Drac mags growing up. One was an Amazing Spiderman crossover, the other was a Drac/Dr. Strange mash-up. In both cases, the good guy was pretty clear.

  • zombiewhacker

    Women nothing. If old toothy wanted to shed some unnecessary poundage, how about losing that gaudy cape? Must’ve added ten or twenty extra pounds at least. Just because you’re the prince of darkness doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be looking into some lighter fabrics.

  • Eric Hinkle

    Apparently a vampire’s libido survives into undeath.

  • Eric Hinkle

    Sometimes he did good things, but Dracula himself was always pretty clearly a villain. Sometimes he fought nastier villains though. Like that one Satanic cult that wanted to keep Dracula around to be their unholy minion o’ evil. Drac pretty quickly set them straight.
