  Great story, good art and, as stated above, classic Howard.

  Seriously? How can you have this paladin honor a deal made with a demon without knowledge of its nature? He would rather let hundreds of innocents die, rather than go back on his word? Boo.

  3 stars for Solomon Kane actually getting the best of Dracula--until Drac plays his get out of jail card!!!

Credit Due - Does anybody know who the Crusty Bunkers are??

Fashion Police - I think Mr. Sinister stole Drac's look!!!

Honor & Duty - Poor Solomon, he couldn't spend even a little bit of time with the Ravishing Rosella?!!!

'Nuff Said - "So, Solomon Kane...you've learned my little secret, then?"-Dracula

  Simple and straightforward; I really liked this little "crossover" tale here. But, I think Solomon Kane is gonna regret letting Drac go, honor or no honor.

@Locust75: The Crusty Bunkers were simply a collective of artists that worked out of Continuity Studios in New York in the early to mid '70's, headed by Neal Adams and Dick Giordano, with work mostly directed by Adams. They did occasional work for comic companies, including Marvel and DC.

3 stars. It could've been 4 or 5 with a more decisive outcome to the fight.

  Finally a coherent storyline with character motivations that make sense. But yeah, if all the death is going to weigh so heavily, go back and try to kill Dracula the next day. Surely you've only agreed to spare him that one time.
