Vampire Tales

    (Marvel, 1973-1975)
™ and ©1973 Marvel Comics Group

Oversized and stuffed with comics, essays and film commentary by writers and artists who would later become names in the field, this magazine-style work from Marvel Monster Group takes on all things vampire.

A comic adaptation of the original vampire story, Lord Ruthven, is offered, along with tales of emotionally tormented vampires in the 1970s and vengeful women vampires. A werewolf tale is tossed in for balance, as is a cautionary story about selling your soul to Satan. All of them are over the top, and several delightfully funny. Meanwhile, silly vampire movies are lovingly mocked and an academic book about the creatures reviewed. Morbius fans should note that the vampire/scientist’s first solo adventure took place in issue #1 of this title.

Not all works are credited, dismaying completists. Contributors included artists Bill Everett, Pablo Marcos, Esteban Maroto and Paul Reinman and writers Steve Gerber, Chris Claremont, Mark Evanier, Gardner Fox Don McGregor and Ron Goulart. Editorial assists by Marv Wolfman, Tony Isabella and Gerry Conway.
