Universal Monsters in Our Midst

A glorious paradox: we love the Universal Monsters so much, they get under our skin...

The original inked monstrophiliac was none other than Jack Dracula (immortalized in a Diane Arbus photo essay that appeared in Harper's Bazaar in 1961).  To learn more about the Arbus/Jack Dracula connection, check out David J. Skal's The Monster Show--a book that is an indisputable must-read for serious fans of the Universal Monsters.
