Superman & Batman vs. Vampires & Werewolves # 1 of 6

Writer: Kevin VanHook
Artist: Tom Mandrake
Colorist: Nathan Eyring
Publisher: DC
Published: October 2008

Okay, here's a Halloween treat to keep the ultimate geek gushing. DC's biggest names, Supes and Bats, battling histories greatest monsters, vampires and werewolves. If Hitler was thrown in as surprise villain, this series would be the greatest thing next to Lord of the Rings vs. The Matrix Trilogy. But I digress....

Issue begins with a gruesome half eaten dead body falling from the sky. Batman and a mysterious Marius Dimeter are on the scene, and they both have their suspicions as to who did the deed. Dimeter dissolves into a wall, and Batman is left to continue his search for answers. Meanwhile, Wonder Woman is quick on the scene to beat the crap out of a vampire, (alright, now, this comic is definitely one tier below geek masterpiece - Bats, Supes, vamps, werewolves, AND Wonder Woman - and all for $2.99!) Without ruining anymore of the story, all I can say is that Batman is doing some crime solving, while the vampires and werewolves are up to some shady dealings.

All in all, this looks to be a cheesy series, but hopefully, the end payoff will be worth it.
