Dracula doesn't get much mail, so when he reads Sam's letter, he decides to respond personally. He arrives at Sam's house on Halloween night, hypnotizes Sam's grandmother, and barges into Sam's room (where Sam is busy sulking because he's not allowed to go out on his own). As the two go for a walk under a full moon, Dracula explains exactly what being a vampire entails--hanging upside-down like a bat, sleeping in a coffin, avoiding sunlight. Sam reacts to each of Dracula's statements with a comment of his own, wondering, for instance, how Dracula can get ready in the morning if he can't see himself in the mirror.
When Dracula reveals that blood, not pizza, is the staple of a vampire's diet, Sam gets grossed out and starts to rethink his ambition. A life without hamburgers, tacos, and root beer floats, not to mention his favorite food, cheese, is the deal-breaker for Sam. He and Dracula agree to be friends, and Dracula drops him off at home, turns into a bat, and heads back to Transylvania. And by Christmas, Sam has found someone else to write to: Frankenstein.
The fun in this comic comes from Sam and Dracula comparing a vampire's lifestyle to a little kid's and comparing the gothic conventions of horror movies to the reality of a little boy's life.Read more ›
