So I’ve dug up three episodes of an old comic strip of mine from the early ’80s that seems appropriate to the occasion. They were drawn for early issues of Fangoria, a sister publication of my late-’70s stomping ground Starlog. Fangoria is currently celebrating its thirtieth year of existence, I see from a recent advertisement. That’s far more years than my humble Count Fangor comic strip racked up (although I’m told he reemerged for a while as a real-world wrestling star once I was no longer around to supervise); but then, what kinder fate could befall a cartoon vampire than to die at an early age.)
Anyway, I scanned three of the Count’s four episodes for a very early installment of my web site. That moment in the sun occurred a decade ago, so I’m hoping he has recovered enough by now from that earlier exposure to daylight to endure at least one more walk about the block.
