WHAT IF...? DARK : THE TOMB OF DRACULA (Marv Wolfman / David Cutler)

Writer Marv Wolfman and artist David Cutler are teaming on What If…? Dark: Tomb of Dracula #1, in that sees Blade transformed by Dracula.

« 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, » Wolfman said.« 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, »

« Getting Marv back on Tomb of Dracula is a bucket list check-off, » said editor Nick Lowe. « He hasn’t lost a step and the opportunity to pair him with David Cutler and Scott Hanna to make a story that’s both love letter and one of the scariest and creepiest and new vampire stories I’ve read made it all the better! »

Giuseppe Camuncoli provides the cover to the issue, arriving on Wed., Nov. 8.
