Just debuted last night at San Diego Comic-Con, my newest limited edition print is now available to purchase in the Studio Store, as are thirteen “Special Editions” which each include the original black and white inked artwork of one of the Dracula caricatures (warning- any orders placed between now and Monday, July 25th will not ship until I get back from Comic-Con on July 26th).
Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel “Dracula” introduced the world to one of the classic literary villain of all time in the undead Count Dracula. Since then, Dracula has gone on to be portrayed by more actors in more visual media adaptations of the novel, and in other original stories, than any other literary character. He has appeared in over 275 films as well as many television serials, radio dramas and plays.

* Choosing a selection of portrayals of Dracula from so many was not easy. I chose those that I thought were either iconic, of significant note for some reason, or represented different “takes” on the character and spanned the decades as best I could. If your favorite Dracula was excluded, my apologies.- Tom
**Although called “Count Orlock” due to a copyright infringement lawsuit by the Stoker estate, Schreck’s portrayal is considered that of Dracula and one of the best ever.
*** Yes, “Grandpa” was actually Dracula.
