Thursday, October 31, 2013 Halloween Treat: Captain Kronos, Vampire Hunter

As all Hammer aficionados know, Captain Kronos - Vampire Hunter was a late-game attempt to create a new franchise for the financially ailing studio.  The film was not as successful - artistically or financially - as had been hoped, and so despite the potential of the character no sequels ever materialized. 

At least not on the screen. The official studio's official fan magazine, House of Hammer, featured the good Captain in an original serialized adventure.  I've compiled the strip in Comic Book Reader format and included HoH's adaptation of the original film for good measure.  To add it to your trick-or-treat bag, simply right click on the link below:
