  Funny that Dracula had time to deal with that, considering all the madness that's going on in the rest of his life at the minute.

  I admit the story was so so, but the combination of Ploog and Chua was pretty impressive.

  Why exactly would Dracula care if some two-bit actor horrendously played the part of Drac?

  Actually, I can see that pissing Dracula off.

  So when the Dracula series started, he was revived when the stake that had killed him was removed. Was he only out of commission for like a week or what? He always talks about the recent history as if he were around to see it, and on a couple of occasions we've seen him in stories that take place between being staked by Van Helsing and being reborn in his castle. And yet on the flip side the whole world looks at him as a myth even though he is pretty overt in his actions. Marvel, you make my brain hurts.

  That was terrible. Dracula was really forced in that story. The ending was OK.

  I've watched a lot of bad Dracula actors on late night TV growing up. How did Dracula pick this one actor out?

  Dracula really is an insufferable character the way he's written.

  I don't know....I actually kind of liked this story. Sure, the placement in the Order is a little puzzling, but as a stand-alone it was pretty goofy and entertaining. I could also see Dracula being irritated by this lousy actor, and wanting to teach him a lesson for making the Count look so doltish. Of course, making a snack out of Liza never hurts either, right?

2 stars. Maybe if Drac gets tired of trying to turn the Earth into his personal buffet, he could try becoming an acting coach.

  That was so goofy, and yet more enjoyable than a lot of Dracula stories have been.
