Marie Severin was born into a family of artists, and she made friendships in comics that have lasted a lifetime. She colored the horror, science fiction, and war comics of the legendary EC line, and spent thirty years working for Marvel Comics, doing everything from production and coloring to penciling, inking, and art direction, with work on characters including the Incredible Hulk, Sub-Mariner, Doctor Strange, and Kull the Conqueror, which she drew with her brother John. She is renowned for her sense of humor, reflected in the comic book Not Brand Echh, as well as the numerous caricatures she has produced over the years, earning her the nickname “Mirthful Marie” from Stan Lee. This loving tribute contains revealing and often amusing insights of her close friends and her brother John, as well as many of her co-workers, including Stan Lee, Al Feldstein, Roy Thomas, John Romita, Jack Davis, Jack Kamen, Tony Isabella, Gene Colan, Jim Mooney, Joe Sinnott, Mark Evanier, and David Anthony Kraft, plus an extensive commentary by Marie herself. Complementing the text is a wealth of photographs and artwork from throughout her career, including numerous rare and unpublished pieces, as well as a color gallery, showing her mastery with a painter's pallette. Marie Severin: The Mirthful Mistress of Comics is sure to bring back great memories (and a smile to your face), as you enjoy the remarkable story of “The First Lady of Comics.”

This is a comprehensive sourcebook on the world’s most famous vampire, with more than 700 citations of domestic and international Dracula films, television programs, documentaries, adult features, animated works, and video games, as well as nearly a thousand comic books and stage adaptations. While they vary in length, significance, quality, genre, moral character, country, and format, each of the cited works adopts some form of Bram Stoker’s original creation, and Dracula himself, or a recognizable vampiric semblance of Dracula, appears in each. The book includes contributions from Dacre Stoker, David J. Skal, Laura Helen Marks, Dodd Alley, Mitch Frye, Ian Holt, Robert Eighteen-Bisang, and J. Gordon Melton.
