(c/c/p: tvtropes) The vampire. As Sherlock Holmes is to detectives, James Bond is to secret agents, and Superman is to Superheroes, so Dracula is to vampires. Count Dracula was created by Bram Stoker in his 1897 novel of the same name. He was not the first to introduce vampires into western literature but his Dracula is the first to enter popular culture — the vampire known even by people not familiar with the book, or even the genre.
The character has subsequently appeared across the world in popular culture, from films to animated media to breakfast cereals. But for now we will focus on the first two with this list. Looking through the history of Dracula, Vlad ect on the big and small screen.
