INTL 'ZINES: WHAT IS A VAMPIRE?

Fond of the format, the Brits published a number of "poster 'zines" during their monster magazine heyday of the 70s and 80s.

One of them was titled, LEGEND HORROR CLASSICS. The first issue was published in 1974 and was an all-Dracula issue. Edited by one Gent Shaw, the 16-page quickie included a few photos and a Dracula comic strip drawn by Kevin O'Neill. A bit crude, the strip was an adaptation of Dan Curtis' DRACULA TV movie, starring Jack Palance. Mr. O'Neill had 25 more years to hone his art until it appeared -- considerably more evolved -- in Alan Moore's LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN comic book series.
