Barnabas Collins' American Life

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one inspired by random references in popular media. This artist was inspired by a reference to Dark Shadows on an episode of the podcast This American Life to create the illustration you see above. I'm not sure which episode he heard, though, because the show has come up more than once on This American Life. Back in 1997, the show did a special on conventions which featured a chapter devoted to the annual Dark Shadows gathering, while a Halloween episode dealt with the show's rabid following. Has there been a more recent reference?

You can find the Barnabas Collins art (and much, much more) at the Draw Each Day blog.
