Victor Gischler to Write Fear Itself: Hulk vs. Dracula in September


This weekend at Wondercon 2011, Marvel announced that this September Victor Gischler will be writing Fear Itself: Hulk vs. Dracula. Gischler will be joined on the title by artist Ryan Stegman.

Marvel says that that the Hulk is not necessarily the her f the piece, and that the book will force readers to reevaluate their notions of good and evil with The Green Goliath cast in the role of a genocidal danger who might annihilate the entire vampire nation.

“It’s a fun idea that toys with some of our notions of fear, as what’s scarier than a whole nation of vampires,” asks editor Jake Thomas. “And yet here’s Dracula, trying to actually be a good, effective leader of this vampire nation that he’s taken over from his wayward son, and right from the get-go they’ve got one of the biggest, scariest, most dangerous threats to ever hit the Marvel Universe dropped right into their back yard.”

“Imagine that The Hulk is smashing the crap out of your neighborhood and all the heroes in the world are already busy,” adds Gischler. “Then what?”

On a personal note, I was really not a fan of Gischler’s X-Men vs. Vampires storyline in the new X-Men series, so I won’t be picking this up. I mean, how do you make vampires that boring, outside of Twilight?!
