Two things we love here: Hammer Films and Titan Comics. These two powerhouses are joining forces and gifting us with a brand new rendition of Captain Kronos Vampire Hunter. Yeah, that’s some insanely good news!
Here’s a little valuable info from the official press release – you’re going to want to read it:
Titan Comics is excited to announce the next title from its Hammer Horror line of comics – Captain Kronos, materializing in 2017!
Based on the 1974 film, Captain Kronos will be the second Hammer title following the success of Peter Milligan and Ronilson Freire’s The Mummy: Palimpsest, which hit stores and digital devices last November.
Written by Dan Abnett (Aquaman, Guardians of the Galaxy) with stunning art by Tom Mandrake (Sidekick, The Spectre), Titan’s new series chronicles the adventures of the mysterious and powerful Kronos, who has dedicated his life to destroying the evil vampire plague. Once a victim himself, the debonair Hunter knows the vampire’s strengths and weaknesses as well as the dangers of confronting the potent forces of darkness.
