The spookiest of seasons is upon us, so we decide to take a look at one of Marvel's spookiest comics: Tomb of Dracula! We know this character's not very well known, so we read issues #10-15 which include the first appearance of Blade, a much more popular character.

Plus we get Dracula doing all of his trademark moves like steering a boat and calling his enemies up on the phone.

Then we continue our Earth-2 journey with JLA #160 which features a panel where The Atom is lying on a giant hospital bed. That's all I remember about it. And dinosaurs.

Next Time: Locke & Key, Vol. 3: Crown of Shadows

She-Hulk has her own show! And it seems to take a lot of inspiration from the Dan Slott run that we visited a while back.

We dive back into it with Volume 3: Time Trials, which collects #1-5 from the 2005 She-Hulk series. There's cowboys, jealousy, and time cops: the three perfect ingredients in any story.

Then we read our next Earth-2 book with a JLA/JSA team-up in Justice League of America #159.

Next Time: Blade's Origins with Tomb of Dracula #10-15 + Justice League of America #160
