The Ballad of the Blonde Streak.
(Asked what he thought of the book Dracula)
Max Schreck: It made me sad.
Albin: Why sad?
Max Schreck: Because Dracula had no servants.
Albin: I think you missed the point of the book, Count Orlock.
Max Schreck: Dracula hasn't had servants in 400 years and then a man comes to his ancestral home, and he must convince him that he... that he is like the man. He has to feed him, when he himself hasn't eaten food in centuries. Can he even remember how to buy bread? How to select cheese and wine? And then he remembers the rest of it. How to prepare a meal, how to make a bed. He remembers his first glory, his armies, his retainers, and what he is reduced to. The loneliest part of the book comes... when the man accidentally sees Dracula setting his table.

My favorite Stephen Gammell illustrations from ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’.

I want these as a thigh sleeve…

God, these illustrations scared the shit out of me as a child.

Now I’m scared in a nostalgic sort of way.

These used to scare the bejesus out of me….but I’d look at them anyway and shut the book super fast.
