Again, coinciding with First Second Books’ Vampire Month, here’s the next in our alphabet of comic book vampires!
King is one of the coolest characters to come out of Tomb of Dracula – he’s a private investigator who was turned into a vampire, but he retained his human conscience, so he fights on the side of the good guys and remains a vampire detective.
During the 90s, when everyone was all bad-ass and “extreme,” Hannibal began to become more hardcore vamp-y.
However, recently, he’s gone back to being a cool regular detective/vampire.
He was especially good in the recent Blade ongoing series.
He was also featured in the third Blade film, as a possibility for a spin-off (it did not happen).
