There are some movies that deserved comic book adaptations...
...but all they got were things like this never-reprinted, extremely-faithful parody from Marvel's Spoof #4 (1973)!
(BTW, the doctor on the cover was Robert Young as tv sawbones Marcus Welby M.D., also the subject of a parody in this issue!)
There was a Blackenstein, as well as a Blacula sequel, Scream Blacula Scream (co-starring Pam Grier), but the Blaxploitation trend died down before more classic monsters could be adapted to the genre!
Shakespearean actor William Marshall, already familar to genre fans as Dr Richard Daystrom on classic Star Trek, took what could have been a mediocre potboiler and gave it gravitas and panache, creating a memorable addition to the ranks of cinematic creatures of the night!
