|Tomb of Dracula|
It's his work on Marvel's 1970s horror comic book, The Tomb of Dracula that I remember him the most for, lasting an incredible 70-issues. It was a book that Colan lobbied for at Marvel.
Gene Colan - "When I heard Marvel was putting out a Dracula book, I confronted editor Stan Lee about it & asked him to let me do it. He didn't give me too much trouble but, as it turned out, he took that promise away, saying he had promised it to Bill Everett. Well, right then & there I auditioned for it. Stan didn't know what I was up to, but I spent a day at home and worked up a sample, using Jack Palance as my inspiration & sent it to Stan. I got a call that very day: 'It's yours.'"
|Jack Palance as Dracula|

|Wesley Snipes as Blade|
My wishes go out to Gene's Family & Friends.
