Tomb of Dracula Thursdays - page 11

Finally, we're at the first real meeting between Dracula and Doctor Strange.

No colour hold effects at all here - just a small glow in the second panel and a huge glow effect over all of the third panel. I just went with a lighting contrast in the fourth panel to indicate the harsh light overhead - without the glow effects, it is assisting the storytelling in that Dracula is quickly adapting to the lighting. And, finally, I just went with showing the harsh lighting behind both characters in the final panel, only really affecting the coffin.

This book was written by Marv Wolfman, with artwork by Gene Colan and Tom Palmer, and lettering by John Costanza.
