Guardians of the Galaxy writer sinking his teeth into Captain Kronos — Vampire Hunter

It’s back from the dead!

It’s back from the dead! Bwah-hah-hah!

Titan Comics has announced that writer Dan Abnett (Guardians of the Galaxy) and artist Tom Mandrake (The Spectre) are collaborating on a new series, Captain Kronos. The comic is inspired by Hammer Films‘ 1974 cult classic horror film Captain Kronos — Vampire Hunter, and will chronicle the adventures of the titular undead-slayer who has dedicated his life to destroying the evil vampire plague. This is the second title from Titan’s Hammer Comics line and follows Peter Milligan and Ronilson Freire’s The Mummy: Palimpsest, which debuted last November.
