A Story of Dracula, The Wolfman and Frankenstein

We've come to the end of another long, hard week, and that means only one thing... it's Freebie Friday! 

Today, I'm dropping A Story of Dracula, The Wolfman and Frankenstein on Power Records from 1975. But not only do you get to listen to this story, you also get to READ it, because this record also came with a 16-page full color comic, penned by Neal Adams, illustrating the entire three-chapter story. It's a great read/listen as it spins an original story, interweaving the three classic characters. This one is a lot of fun to listen to and follow along with!

From the record sleeve:

Book and Record - At the signal, turn the page and follow along.

The record follows the book "word for word." The action COMES ALIVE!

Frankenstein's monster, Count Dracula, and The Werewolf all meet under unusual and bizarre circumstances in this masterpiece of terror and suspense. Power Records is proud to present this magnificently illustrated original tale. Heightening the intense dramatic portrayal are sound effects and music that will keep you on the edge of your chair. This package is designed to be read and played—and treasured for years to come.

And my personal favorite, the blurb from the back cover:

Especially designed to coordinate sight and sound, this book and record set is a valuable and entertaining learning aid. This educationally valuable multi-sensory reading concept is approved by reading specialists. Everyone becomes totally involved reading the words in the book as they are spoken on the record. The dramatic performances enlivened with sound effects and music create thrills and excitement.

Thrills and excitement, indeed! Follow along as we hear A Story of Dracula, The Wolfman and Frankenstein!

Thanks to the Power Records blog for posting the comic page scans.

Manatan, Neal Adams was the artist. I don't really follow comics, but his portfolio is quite expansive and VERY impressive:
