Silent Screamers: Nosferatu - "The Inmates"

This comic adaptation of the German silent movie "Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens" is in essence a promotional publication for a series of collectible figures called "Silent Screamers" that were produced in 2000 by Aztech Toyz.

A full-color framing sequence surrounds the adaptation in which a maniacal jack-in-the-box called Asylum Jack captures an obnoxious spoiled delinquent intent on stealing a Silent Screamers figure from a toy store. The story switches to a subdued sepia tone art style as Asylum Jack tells his reluctant but unrepentant captive the story of the first vampire. The framing story contains a resolution of its own that is entirely appropriate.



Writer: Digger, Nelson Asencio, Alex Glass & Jason Orfalas
Artist: Caesar, Grey, Nelson Asencio & Jason Orfalas

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
