This is your weirdest piece so far. Now I'm going to wonder about how Ed'n Barney found each other. Maybe Barnabas is attracted to the master mind behind wobbling tombstones and carpet grass. Oh no, wait a minute, Johnny Depp of course. Because you have drawn Quentin I always assumed your Barnabas were the Frid version, but looking at your other art-work I guess it must be Depp. This makes me wonder: Is David Selby in your mind when you draw Quentin or do you imagine a different actor for that part?
Our Barnabas... is hard to explain. We basically wanted it to look like Johnny had he been in the original series, but that's as far as the similarity to the Burton movie goes with our Barnabas hybrid, because personality-wise he is entirely based on Frid.
How Ed found him, well, Ed Wood was definitely still alive in the early 1970s. We started a fanfiction on this, and the first chapter has been written, I just forget whether it's up or not.
Fear not, this will all be explained in a 1970s Dark Shadows story. It just hasn't happened yet. We do, however, pull most of our material from the original series, as it is much preferred to the remake.
Have you read mine and 's 1795 story involving Quentin and Barnabas? We basically just have Quentin start out in the same era and create out own chain of events with them from there on. It goes over how Barnabas became a vampire, and all that jazz.
