If the trailers for Hugh Jackman’s Van Helsing leave you pining for classic monsters without the steroids and CG effects, check out Nicolas Mahler’s humorous collection. The vampire hunter, along with the Wolfman and other familiar characters, stars in vignettes about the trouble that beasties (and heroes) get into during their downtime. Told almost entirely without words, the strips are paced like movie shorts and the art is keenly stylized. While this book isn’t all that scary, the dark, campy humor will delight and mystify mature monster fans.
