It’s no surprise that a character as gothic as the early Batman had gothic adventures. Indeed, just two issues after his debut in Detective Comics #27, Batman was facing a bonafide vampire. (Although I think this was later retconned.) To make the latter even MORE gothic, the vamp ran around in a red cassock and hood and called himself the Monk.
This is a pretty famous panel for obvious reasons. And yes, he used a silver bullet. Pre-1941’s The Wolf Man, so silver was still more associated with vampires than werewolves.
Sorry the image isn’t on the front page, Imgur wouldn’t let me drag images this morning. I’ll try again after work.
So, did anybody see anything good over the weekend?
