A surreal 1970s sci-fi tale in a magazine called "Dracula"?
BTW, despite the magazine being called "Dracula", the legendary vampire never appears in any of the stories!
The tale, written and illustrated by Jose M Bea was originally published in England in Dracula #11 (1972), a partworks magazine* by New English Library.Some of the stories from this project made their American debut in Warren Publishing's HTF Dracula TPB in 1972 which reprinted #1-#6 of the British Dracula's run.
The remaining tales from #7-#12 (including this one) have never been published in the US.
*Partworks magazines are a limited series issued weekly, fortnightly, or monthly.
They usually run 12-24 issues for each volume.
When the final issue in a volume is published, the publishers offer a wraparound cover to make the complete set into a hardbound book.
The buyer is offered the option to bind the magazines themselves or send the set to the publisher who professionally-binds the mags and sends the bound volume back to the customer.
This concept is extremely popular in Europe, but has never caught on in America, despite numerous attempts.
