EXCLUSIVE: Titan Comics Announces Captain Kronos Series


British publisher Titan Comics has announced a brand new series from its Hammer Horror line of comics, based on the 1974 supernatural cult-classic "Captain Kronos Vampire Hunter," and CBR has the exclusive first details about the project.

The creative team for series, titled "Captain Kronos," includes writer Dan Abnett ("Aquaman," "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Titans") and artist Tom Mandrake ("Sidekick," "The Spectre").

"Captain Kronos" was green lit in the wake of the success of Peter Milligan and Ronilson Freire’s "The Mummy: Palimpsest," which hit stores and digital devices last November.  This will be the second title to be published under Titan's Hammer Horror imprint, which was first announced last year.
