Dracula: Superhero by DoodleLyle Dracula: Superhero by DoodleLyle
Artwork copyright James E. Lyle.  Back in the 1960s DELL Comics tried to cash in on the Batman craze and monster movie craze with a set of 3 super-monster books.  Threatened with lawsuits from Universal and stymied by their own rushed schedule these books were cancelled within three issues.  This illustration is going to be the cover to a reprint edition published by Mini-Comix in spring of 2015.  I'll also be hawking prints around to shows.  (BTW, I had no knowledge of this book until AFTER creating Wolfman.  So I guess I'm more in touch with that era than I thought.)  This Dracula was not a vampire, but a scientist who could change into a bat.  He was really only beginning to get his groove when they canceled the series.  His female side-kick, "Fleeta", was introduced in costume on the final page of that issue, but she deserved a better fate than that.

Really this should've been the reveal at the end of Twilight 6 or whatever. XD What a strange world.
