Undead Man Walking--My CGC graded Tomb of Dracula Collection

2 2


Tomb of Dracula #1:

So in October of 2006 I purchased my first CGC graded comic--Tomb of Dracula #1.. A cover that had been engraved in my earliest memories of childhood, and a series which I could not fully appreciate until I was a teenager. I had decided this was an issue that I would like to own a preserved graded copy of.  Well after receiving this copy, I had decided that I was going to try and complete the series in a grade of 9.2 and higher (high grade for me ;) )-- It's been a long and fun journey as I'm nearing completion of this set....

Issue #1 (April 1972) - "Dracula" -Written by Gerry Conway, Art by Gene Colan , and Cover by Neal Adams (inked by Marie Severin)

More coolness cover wise, as another legend in my books Gil Kane takes the reigns for this cover. And another classic!!

Awesome. I used to have a bunch of TOD comics but like a fool I sold them off about 4-5 years ago. I had a run from like issue 15-30 somewhere in that range, with a few before and a few after stragglers. A friend of mine growing up had some issues decorating his walls in his bedroom when I was a teenager and the covers always fascinated me, so when I became an adult and saw a bunch of them in a local shop for like 1-3$ each,(in the 1990's)  I went crazy and bought everything they had.  I turned a decent profit when I sold them a few few years ago, but honestly I wish I had just kept them. Seeing these makes me miss them even more. Beautiful collection you have going here. Thanks for sharing.
