- 003: Spike vs. Dracula #1; Tales of the Vampires frame; Angel: Barbary Coast
And now... Dracula is a sympathetic character; the Council is not good at things; a dragon is not a horse, actually.

RECS from Sam:
Marvel did a cool book spotlighting Indigenous creators called Marvel’s Voices: Indigenous Voices. Maria Wolf, who is a relatively new artist, has been doing amazing cover work and is one of my current faves.
Dynamite has a new graphic novel coming out called Thunderous by M.L. Smoker, who is a member of the Assiniboine and Sioux tribes of Montana’s Fort Peck. Art by Dale DeForest, who is Navajo and grew up in 4-corners area of the Navajo Nation around Shiprock and Farmington New Mexico. From what I’ve read, it pulls from a lot of Indigenous stories and beliefs.48m | Mar 25, 2022
