Week eighty seven of Operation Graphite – theme: Dracula.

Shock - Dracula

Dracula will always be the ultimate vampire. He may not be the first, won’t be the last, and certainly doesn’t sparkle, but Count Dracula will continue to reign as the definitive blood sucker.  As vampires get sexier and more sympathetic, are we missing the original intent of these monstrous beings? Is our desire to turn all the bad guys into good guys ruining or improving the context of villains? Perhaps it is a sign of the times, where our real life heroes seem to fall so easily from grace, we want the malefactors become noble. Or maybe we just dig bad guys, really stylish bad guys who wear silk capes and can shape shift into a bat.
