Characters Appearing: Dracula
Tomb of Dracula Magazine #4
Issue(s): Tomb of Dracula Magazine #4
The frame has a young girl who was crippled in an accident that also killed her father, and who is being visited by Dracula.
Dracula tells her stories that she writes in her diary. And the story we read is about another young girl that Dracula used to visit back when he was haunting a lighthouse. Dracula protects the girl from another vampire found in a shipwreck on the island; i believe he's actually the captain of the ship that brought Dracula here.
...and it turns out the previous lighthouse keeper had been turned into a vampire as well.
The weirdest thing is the child nudity in the story.
I didn't know Dracula was into that.
Dracula is eventually driven away by a crudely painted cross on the lighthouse light.
There's no resolution for the girl in the framing sequence.
Another story in this issue, also by Roger McKenzie but with art by John Buscema and Klaus Janson, takes place in 1823 and is therefore not part of my project.
