If you’re going to drive a stake into a vampire’s heart what better tool to use than the hammer of the Norse God of thunder, am I right?
Today starts a month of spooky themed Friday Funny Pages in honor of my favorite holiday, Halloween. I was out doing yard work this morning in preparation for putting out my Halloween decorations. I dragged everything up out of the basement and began the process of turning my domicile into a haunted house. Afterwards I sat down and finally watched Francis Ford Coppola’s Dementia 13, a horror movie of some renown which up until this point has eluded me. Needless to say when I sat down to write this blog I was in a very eerie Halloween-ish kind of mood. As I briefly pondered on which image to use for today I came across this one and immediately ceased my search. With a quick look at some of the others I have lined up I decided it’s going to be a Halloween themed month of Friday Funny Pages! Hurray!
Ok so this image obviously comes to us from Thor #333 with art by good ol’ Bill Sienkiewicz. Thor VS Dracula. What more needs said? I love Dracula in the Marvel universe he’s really established himself in the comics and has made appearances across the spectrum of big name Marvel titles. Sadly I have never actually had the pleasure of reading this particular issue and if anyone sees it out there in the quarter bin pick one up for me! I’m purely a fan of the concept of various heroes doing battle with the lord of the undead himself, Count Dracula. I’ve always enjoyed the supernatural elements in comics and one of my favorite heroes, Dr. Strange, has had several encounters with Vlad Dracul, each of which have been an enjoyable read.
Hmmmm that gives me an idea about what I’m going to write about next week . . . . until then . . . .
That is all!
