Horror creeps into the Marvel Universe this November with another entry in the What If…? Dark line, pairing seminal creator Marv Wolfman with one of his most famous co-creations, Blade. What If…? Dark: Tomb of Dracula #1 allows the writer to return to those groundbreaking days of horror with artist David Cutler and inker Scott Hanna. The one-shot explores a reality in which Dracula succeeds in turning Blade from daywalker to true vampire.
In the press release from Marvel, writer Marv Wolfman describes his history with the title:
“In 1972 I was a fledgling comics writer who mostly wrote short 2 to 8 page ‘monster’ stories when Editor Roy Thomas asked if I’d like to write Tomb of Dracula, my very first series for Marvel, and the book that would jump-start my career. So it is a real thrill now that 50-plus years later Marvel asked me to once again dive into that pool with this very special What If…? story, and to bring back that great cast of characters that artist Gene Colan and I created so many years ago. Thank you, Marvel, for giving me the chance to play with old friends one last time.“
Alongside the announcement, Marvel has also shared a first look at Giuseppe Camuncoli’s cover to the one-shot.
