    Has Viking guy put on his wife’s boob-plate and chainmail armour by mistake?

  2. JJYoyo Says:

    That doesn’t look like a Viking helmet on his head. That looks like a teapot.
    Is the Viking supposed to be Mighty Wizard Ka-Zadok?

    Are we to think he is a Hasidic Viking, Ka-Tzadik?

    Will they play Handel’s missing anthem “Ka-Zadok the Wizard” at Charles’s coronation? Will Dracula conduct? Shall the Viking be mother at tea?

    This cover. So many question…..

    You might want to get that melanoma checked out, Son of Dra****

  4. Tat Wood Says:

    One for UK readers: judging by the lining in that precarously-balanced coffin, this is a sequel to ‘Billy the Kid and the Green Baize Vampire’.

    One for US readers: the early applicants for ‘Spawn of Svengoolie’ aren’t too promising.

  5. The Blue Are Coming Says:

    There is so much wrong with this cover – the snake-helmet viking, shoddy coffin construction, Stuka bats flying out of the sun, Son of Dracula not bursting into flames.

    Look closely at SoD, and you can see remnants of his previous meal. Probably the cover artist.

    @Tat Wood “Berwyn ?!?”

    In the immortal words of Matt Smith, “Bowties are cool.”

  8. Bruce A Munro Says:

    So, if he returned from the dead…does that make him a zombie wizard Viking? And being a Viking probably makes him a pirate, too.

  9. GSS ex-noob Says:

    “Ka-Dazok” doesn’t sound like a Viking name. More Mesopotamia or Egypt.

    Maybe it’s the sound his magick makes when applied: “KA-DAZOK!!!” a la Don Martin.

    @JJYoyo: GSS! (particularly the Handel reference)

    @TheBlue: GSS. You’ve summed it up well.

    @Tat: I thought maybe Drac Jr. was suffering from some sort of grave rot or mold, but thanks to you I see it’s just where the coffin lining came loose and stuck to his face.

  10. Lars Of Mars Says:

    Vampires are undead, how can they even reproduce?
    And doesn’t the “Dra” or “Drac” part of the name already mean “son of”?

  11. Emster Says:

    Um… the font…ah-ooooooooo! Scary stuff!

    Son of Drac had enough of his dad’s goofy get-up and ongoing drama with Ka-Dozonk and is now in London taking evening accounting classes to become a chartered accountant…

  12. Lars of Mars Says:

    @Tat Wood, @ Daard23
    At the 2019 edition of Brickworld, the convention for Adult Fans of LEGO, I found a giant Mosaic of Svengoolie (“Berwynnnn?”).
    I said to the nice lady behind table “Well, it could be worse. Could be Winooski, Vermont, which was definitely the Berwynnn of Vermont when I lived in Vermont” (From birth to age 14).
    Astoundingly, she not only knew what the hell I was talking about, she had also lived in Vermont!

  13. JJYoyo Says:

    @Blue: Stuka bats! Good show sir! That would make an awesome new tag! Or my next band name.

  14. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Another GSS for “Stuka Bats”!

    Which is a great band name if you’re a teenage boy who has Deep Thoughts about Darke and Evyl. Or a parody — I can see Cartman calling his next band that and the Goth kids calling him a poser (or whatever they say nowadays).

  15. The Blue Are Coming Says:

    Thanks, guys 🙂

    Gotta admit…”Stuka Bats” would be a hella band name.

  16. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I also feel that the “Stuka Bats” could open for “Tenacious D”.

    Don’t tell me Jack Black wouldn’t dig the name “Stuka Bats”.

  17. Tracy Says:

    Anyone else notice Drac’s odd dentition? His teeth, save the fangs, are all the same size and arrayed in a strip like Barney the dinosaur’s.

  18. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tracy: Maybe Transylvania has a shortage of dentists, and Drac had to go with bad dentures.
