Tomb of Dracula #10
Fantastic Four #138-139
Tomb of Dracula was originally supposed to be a b&w magazine drawn by Bill Everett in 1971, but the problems with Savage Tales #1 stopped that.
Satana only wore this costume for this story and a house ad or two. When it was first reprinted in the Marvel Premiere-Satana issue, some dialogue was inexplicably changed and it reproduced a lot darker.
The Dracula Lives footnote may mean the first Solomon Kane Vs. Dracula story, which Marvel can't reprint due to losing the Robert E. Howard license.

Having recently re-watched the 2011 Marvel Anime Blade series, particularly the episode where he encounters Wolverine in Madripoor, I've come to see some similarities between the two characters. Both are loners who have had to adjust to team situations. Both are "the best at what they do", and no, what they do ain't pretty! And each of them has a close misfit friend with whom they can banter, bicker, and B.S. (Wolvie with Nightcrawler, Blade with Hannibal King). Don't know if Marvel proper has ever done it, but I for one would like to see them join forces in a mini-series somehow. Hell, bring Kurt and Hannibal along for the ride in supporting roles.

While Wolfman and Colan did receive on-screen credit for Blade's creation, it's still a damn shame that Marvel and New Line Cinema didn't see fit to settle and cut them a slice of the back-end and the merch. After all, all of TOD's major players besides Dracula (Blade, Hannibal King, Lilith, Quincy Harker and his team, etc.) were created under their stewardship. Sorry Fnord, I won't turn this into a full-on creators' rights rant, simply just sayin' my piece.
