John Vest On Dick Giordano
posted March 29, 2010

I purchased a number of Marvel's black & white magazines in the 70's. Dick Giordano and Roy Thomas' serialized adaptation of Dracula in Dracula Lives and Legion Of Monsters was one of my favorite features in the mags.

Dick Giordano's pencilling, inking, and gray wash looked really fine and fit the mood of the novel. In a haphazard seeming time in comics, the literate adaption by Thomas and Giordano felt like a comics story meeting the medium's potential.
