Maybe that's why I dig Captain Kronos so much. Sure, he's not exactly a Golden Age Hammer Horror Icon, but he's got a certain swashbuckling sense of excellence that put him in my good graces. Besides, I like arrogant bastards with swords--it's a hold-over from my pre-teen love of all things Sword & Sorcery.
In this spirit of silly fun-itude, please enjoy the first installment of the comic book adaptation of "Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter" from "Hammer's Halls of Horror" Issue 20 (released in 1978, the year of my birth--yay!). Yes, I know the depiction of Carla hardly approaches Caroline Munro levels of hottness, but then again--what character other than Vampirella can?

...TO BE CONTINUED....!
If you guys behave yourselves, I promise to give you the SHOCKING HORROR of the conclusion early next week. I know--the suspense is killing you.
