So instead of saving a whole bunch of them for future Halloweens, I’m gonna devote all of this month’s Friday Night Fights (and probably the day after Halloween, too) to monsters and horror. Shall we begin?
Tonight’s battle comes to us from September 2009′s Captain Britain and MI13 #15 by Paul Cornell, Leonard Kirk, and Jay Leisten, in which Faiza Hussain must face the vampiric might of Count Dracula himself!
Ya wanna hear something really, really weird? Something that’ll put the creep into your bones and make you question the nature of reality itself?
