Those of us here at Shadowline just want to remind all of you that DEAR DRACULA, a graphic novel for kids published by Shadowline, will air tonight (October 16 at 7 p.m. EST/PST) on Cartoon Network's "Spooky Specials" Halloween programming.

The hour-long feature is based on the 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 and the 48-page, full-color hardcover graphic novel from 2008 can still be ordered for $7.99 via ISBN 978-1-58240-970-2.

Giving voice to DEAR DRACULA is a cast of well-known Hollywood veterans as well as breakout young actors:
Ray Liotta as Dracula
Nathan Gamble (Dolphin Tale) as Sam
Ariel Winters (Modern Family) as Emma
Emilio Estevez as Renfield
Marion Ross (Happy Days) as Grandma

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) and can also be purchased on DVD.
