‘Dear Dracula’ – New Animated Tale

Dear Dracula, a graphic novel for kids published by the Image Comics imprint Shadowline, has been adapted into an animated feature for Cartoon Network.

Voice cast for Dear Dracula include:  Ray Liotta as Dracula, Emilio Estevez as Renfield, Nathan Gamble (Dolphin Tale) as Sam, Ariel Winters (Modern Family) as Emma and Marion Ross (Happy Days) as Grandma.

A 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. Sam gets an unexpected reply to his letter when Dracula himself shows up on his doorstep, ready to make Sam’s dream of being a vampire come true.

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).

The original 2008 graphic novel of Dear Dracula, was written by Joshua Williamson and Vicente “Vinny” Navarete. The 48-page, full-color hardcover graphic novel is still in print, and retails for  $7.99 and can be tracked down using the following ISBN: 978-1-58240-970-2.

The hour-long feature will air on October 16 at 7 p.m. (ET, PT) as part of Cartoon Network’s “Spooky Specials” Halloween programming
