Nightstalkers - "Rise of the Midnight Sons (Part 5 of 6)"

Part of the 'Rise of the Midnight Sons' storyline. Other issues are Ghost Rider #28 (Part 1), Spirits of Vengeance #1 (Part 2), Morbius #1 (Part 3); Darkhold #1 (Part 4) and Ghost Rider #31 (Part 6).

"Nightstalkers" features Frank Drake, Hannibal King, and Blade, who comprise "Borderline Investigative Services," a detective agency hell-bent on fighting the occult wherever it lurks. Frank Drake is a descendant of Dracula himself; Blade is a human who is immune to vampirism. Hannibal King is a vampire but does not need blood to survive; he lusts for it nonetheless and finds liquor a barely adequate substitute. These three characters were introduced in the original "Tomb of Dracula" and have made guest appearances in other Marvel titles from time to time.

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
