TOMB OF DRACULA (1972) (#1-70) (MARVEL) #26 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Tomb of Dracula (1972) #26
A 30,000 year old statuette called the Chimera provides the catalyst for a cascade of evil events in "Where Lurks the Chimera!" (written by Marv Wolfman, drawn by Gene Colan and Tom Palmer, cover art by Gil Kane). Forged by a vengeful wizard in the early days of Atlantis, it fell into the hands of Thulsa Doom who tried to use it to destroy King Kull. Later, the arcane object resurfaced at the beginning of the Plagues that swept Europe in the Dark Ages and at the blood-letting spree of the Crusades. But now, all three of its puzzle pieces are in the hands of a good man, a wise man; London pawn shop owner Joshua Eshcol. What will a pure heart do with an instrument of evil?

Eshcol never gets a chance to find out as a trio of mysterious attackers end his life for his pieces of the Chimera. However, his son, David, manages to escape with one of the three fragments; thwarting their goal for now. Possessing such a powerful artifact makes David the new target of much intrigue and malice. And the dangers he faces are echoed by those of Frank Drake, Dracula's descendant, who accepts a tempting offer from a beautiful woman who promises him a chance to change his world. Meanwhile, the Lord of Vampires himself prowls the foggy streets of London on his own quest for the Chimera. And now struck silent, the vampire slayer Taj agrees to return to see his estranged wife, although it could cost him his soul!
