I spotted this in the clearance bin of my local Borders and I had to have it - incredibly I got it for £2.99. The published price is £10.99.
I bought it along with Essential Monster of Frankenstein volume one.
I couldn't resist these as I used to read them as a kid and nostalgia is a wonderful thing.
It's billed as a graphic novel but it's not really since a true graphic novel is a strip written for that relatively new format, but it is rather a collection of magazines in the one place. This book collects strips from Dracula Lives 1 - 2 and Tales of the Zombie 1-10. All in an impressive soft back cover with high quality binding and good reproduction of the original strips.
The stories come largely from Roy Thomas and Stan lee but there are many more artists and writers who would become household names in the comics industry. Big names like John Buscema, Gene Colan and Stevie Gerber. The black and white artwork is very 70's and suits the morbid tales. And there has never been a comic book hero like the walking Zombie, Simon Garth who is controlled by whoever holds the amulet of Damballah.
Tales of the Zombie was aimed at the more mature comic book fans at a time when such terms hadn't been invented and the comic holds up well by modern standards. Really good retro comic entertainment and what a bargain.
