One of my many wonderful tasks as the Promotions guys at Shadowline Comics is to help spread the word about new projects related to our published work.
I wanted to take this opportunity to let everyone know that DEAR DRACULA will air tonight (October 16 at 7 p.m. EST/PST) on Cartoon Network as a part of their “Spooky Specials” Halloween programming.
The hour-long feature is based on the scarily sweet story of a young boy named Sam who loves horror films and vampires so much that he writes to Dracula for Christmas instead of Santa Claus, DEAR DRACULA was written by Joshua Williamson and drawn by Vicente “Vinny” Navarrete and the 48-page, full-color hardcover graphic novel from 2008 can still be ordered for $7.99 at sites like Amazon.com.
Giving voice to DEAR DRACULA is a cast of well-known Hollywood veterans as well as breakout young actors:
Ray Liotta as Dracula
Nathan Gamble (Dolphin Tale) as Sam
Ariel Winters (Modern Family) as Emma
Emilio Estevez as Renfield
Marion Ross (Happy Days) as Grandma
The DEAR DRACULA animated feature is produced by Kickstart Productions (Voltron Force, Wolverine and the X-Men, The Amazing Screw-On Head), with a screenplay by Brad Birch (Johnny Test) and can also be purchased on DVD.
