EERIE: Dracula "Part 1"

Did you know that Classics Illustrated did Frankenstein, but not Dracula?
However, there was a relatively-faithful adaptation of the original Bram Stoker novel, published several years after the Classic Comics version of Mary Shelley's tale (which we ran in our "brother" blog Hero Histories™) appeared in the mid-1940s!
It was published in Avon Comics' Eerie #12 (1953), and was the only book-length story to appear in the title!
To the best of our knowledge, the story has never been reprinted, probably due to it's length.
What shall Johnathan Harker do?
Join us tomorrow for the frightening answer!
BTW, it's Bram Stoker's 165th birthday!
Fangs for the memories, Bram!
And here's a birthday present from Bram:
Project Gutenberg's e-text of the original novel in a variety of formats!
