It’s a Vlad, Vlad World!

Wow, since one of my artists, not naming any names here, is dragging his keester in this latest fetch, I am proud to post an extra bonus “thank you for being patient” illustration for the time being... Young Robb Mommaerts sent this in to me last week, and it darn near blew my drawers off...
Robb sez, “I drew a kind of cool Dracula last night. He is pretty wicked looking... more of the historical Vlad Drucul than the Bela Lugosi count. It was to practice pencils and I was inspired by Frazetta and some of the cool stuff I see online. Plus after reading those old Marvel Dracula trades I wanted to draw my own version of him.
Frankie is next. I'm going to make him either fighting wolves or hunting dogs. He will look scared too, to show that he just wants to be left alone. Or I might have him in the Arctic like in the original Mary Shelley story.”

I know I can’t wait to see the next one! Remember boys, if you do any drawrings between pulps that you are fond of, don’t be shy... Send ’em in to your ol’ Uncle Lou!
