This May is a busy one for DFW area vampire fans. Join me as I give a run down of Texas Frightmare Weekend’s vampire offerings; some more information about the World Dracula Day Symposium that I’m organizing; and a new convention to Dallas, the Famous Monsters Convention.
Today I interviewed comic author Marv Wolfman at the North Texas Comic Book Show. Marv is the author of The Tomb of Dracula Marvel comic series that ran from 1972-1979, and is the creator of Blade, among many other important characters.
This very special episode is an extended interview with Jess Peacock, author of “Such a Dark Thing: Theology of the Vampire Narrative in Popular Culture.” I highly suggest you purchase his book now if you are at all interested in the connections between vampires and Christianity in literature, television, and film.
In this episode I talk about some of the current vampire-related news, including new and upcoming books; the World Dracula Congress; the Halloween Bran Castle contest with Airbnb; the new Vampire World Documentary trailer from Father Sebastiaan; and a teaser for another Texas symposium in 2017.
