Fear #23: Morbius, the Living Vampire in "Alone Against Arcturus!"
Download Adventure Into Fear #23
It is thanks to wonderful stories like this three-parter that I now understand why Steve Gerber has such a fiercely loyal, cultish following. The art by Rich Buckler was more than serviceable in Fear #22, but P. Craig Russell's art was outstanding, as you'll see in this issue and in issue #24.
Just wait until you see "I" and his demiurge in issues #23 and #24, but "I" all by himself was truly memorable—if not outright remarkable. These comic books also introduced me to Blade, the Vampire Slayer, whom went on to silver screen fame in decades to come. Anywhoo, please enjoy these rarely seen classics and the download link is below the cover.
Script: Steve Gerber
