Straight from the floor of Wondercon 2011, today news broke during the Marvel panel that the publisher will once again be handing the stake over to scribe Victor Gischler (“CURSE OF THE MUTANTS”) for another vampire laced story-line, this time as part of the upcoming “FEAR ITSELF” event, with “HULK VS DRACULA”!
“Matt Fraction and the whole FEAR ITSELF team teed us up perfectly, [so Hulk] was less tricky,” he alludes. “Vamps in this particular situation are hovering in a gray area. Such powerful creatures walking that line can be a tricky thing. You’re not going to see Dracula jump up and yell ‘We’ve got to save the citizens!’ He’s just not built that way.” – Victor Gischler (Per –Comic Book Movie.com)
The first book will be hitting stands this September, and below you can get all the details on the series as well as a look at the cover art.
