    Gil Kane and Tom Palmer - Original Cover Art for The Tomb of Dracula #10 (Marvel, 1973). Maybe Dracula's hot stuff back in Transylvania, but nobody messes around with Blade, the Vampire Slayer! That is certainly true now that Wesley Snipes has brought Blade to life on the big screen. From 1973 comes this ground-breaking cover featuring the first-ever appearance of our favorite day-walker. If the cover looks similar but somehow different to other covers in the series, there's a plausible explanation. Usual inker Tom Palmer contributes, but the penciler is Gil Kane, who takes a rare turn with this series that Gene Colan dominated for all but a few issues in the run. Kane shows his dark side with this exciting illustration of Blade and Drac in a classic showdown. Overall page size is 11.5" x 17.5" with an image area of 10" x 15". Includes the original Tomb of Dracula logo and indicia at the top of the page. The logo and indicia along the top portion is a recent replacement photocopy of the original paste-up art, but the original logo art is attached to the back. It's a cover you won't soon forget, vampire fans!
