Flash-Drac: Marvels Dracula Part 1 – 1972 to 1983

Staff member, Wayne Lackey, has submitted his latest article: Flash-Drac: Marvel’s Dracula Part 1 – 1972 to 1983.

Following the relaxation of horror-related restrictions by the Comics Code Authority, Marvel launched their line of classic monster titles in the early 1970s, including The Tomb of Dracula (ToD), Werewolf by Night, and The Frankenstein Monster. Marvel’s version of Dracula was introduced in the first issue of ToD in 1972. The premise of ToD was a little different than typical comic book fare, given that the series’ protagonist was a villain; this was uncommon during the Bronze Age, and for a time ToD held the distinction of being the longest-running title with a villain as the main character at 70 issues.
