What commonly happens during San Diego Comic Con panels is video footage will be shown to those in attendance while we who do not make the pilgrimage either hope a rebellious member of the crowd films it on their phone or we wait patiently for the studio to release the footage online. NBC has just done the later by putting up the trailer for upcoming horror show Dracula.
This week, on the Major Spoilers Podcast, your hosts take a look at the vampires in San Francisco!
THE CURSE OF DRACULA
The Curse of Dracula is back in this deluxe new hardcover edition! A mysterious, charismatic figure is moving amongst the circles of San Francisco’s political elite. When Jonathan Van Helsing and his team of vampire hunters come to town investigating a string of grisly murders, they know it’s only a matter of time before they come face to face with the master of the dark!

Or – “He Doesn’t Even Drink… Wine.”
In the years since 1938 (technically even earlier, given the existence of The Scarlet Pimpernel, Zorro, the Green Hornet and others who predate the technical era of the Superman) there have been hundreds upon hundreds of publishers that create comic book adventures, with hundreds of THOUSANDS of characters involved. In all that time, there have been more than a few heroes whose existence is due mostly to bad ideas, high concept or some sort of drugs. In the case of today’s Hero History entrant, a strong case can be made for all three. His powers are unique, to say the least, his costume not-so-very fearsome, and his code-name? Well, it’s a long story. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages… sit right back and you’ll hear a tale of a man fighting to overcome his family’s legacy of evil and forge a new path to greatness. This, then, is your Major Spoilers Hero History of Aloyisius Ulysses Card of Transylvania, who took his ancestor’s name in his heroic identity of… DRACULA!
