Dracula the Unconquered is here! As promised, the first issue of the new ongoing digital comic book series by me, Steve Downer and Josh Krach is now available for download for one thin American dollar!
The first issue sets the stage for the entire series, introducing my versions of Dracula and Varney as well as Thalia, Drac’s new teenage girl sidekick, plus the driving conflict of the series and a couple of key elements about the world in which they live. Hopefully, I’ve managed to do all that and tell an entertaining adventure story. You can find out more at the link above, including a six-page preview and links to plenty of interviews where I yammer on about what the comic is supposed to be all about, so head on over and check it out! Happy Halloween, everyone!
Today at ComicsAlliance, our Spooktoberfest Celebrations continue with a look back at the awful Halloween costumes of the past! I somehow managed to “forget” to quote The Simpsons for the entire article, but I’m sure one of you will be able to help me out there!
Also: Jokes about kids dressing up as Nazis! Tell your friends!
Now that we’re done with the Batman movies, Uzi and are doing one big last hurrah for Halloween with an in-depth review of 1998’s Blade, in which Wesley Snipes defeats Stephen Dorff and rescues Marvel’s film franchises. Honestly, we should’ve gone with Trinity, but hey, there’s always next year right?
This week in Ask Chris, I’ve written a history and appreciation of my all-time favorite comic book monster hunter, who turns out not to be Hellboy. Seriously. Y’all can deal with it — history will vindicate me for my love of fifth-string Marvel characters.
My Halloween-themed insallments of Bizarro Back Issues continue this week at ComicsAlliance with a look back at Iron Man’s two-issue trip to Castle Frankenstein by Bill Mantlo and George Tuska. There are gnomes involved.
The time has come once again for me to focus on the spoooooky side of things, and today at ComicsAlliance, I’ve written a few jokes about the two-part Hitman story where Tommy Monaghan fights vampires. To be honest, this might be the worst Hitman story, but that just means that it’s only better than 90% of all other comics, rather than 99%. Fact.
Today at ComicsAlliance, I’ve kicked off my month of Halloween-themed Ask Chris columns by recommending a few Halloween specials for a spooooooky read. Also, you get to see Gabriel Hardman draw Dracula. Why doesn’t that happen more often?
