I believe this was reprinted along the way somewhere, possibly in black and white... I know the cover was used again but right now I'm drawing a blank where I saw it.

>>did you ever find out who the artist was?

Nope... GCD says "Everett Raymond Kinstler?" but I'm not so sure about that either.

Loving this adaptation! It's hitting all the necessary points and keeping things moving too. They're taking a few shortcuts--like cutting out one of Lucy's 3 suitors from the book--but it's all in service to the story and it works. They even kept Lucy's penchant for attacking children in there! Love the line about destroying her "If only for the little ones who have come under her power!" Good, tight, economical adaptation. Praises.

Only a couple of things brought me up a little in this chapter, though--first, the repetition of "with nerves of iron" wrt Van Helsing, and second, how does Seward keep those glasses on his nose without earpieces? :)
