Writer Marv Wolfman is a legend of the superhero comics industry, having written nearly every major superhero of the course of his fifty-year career. Now the writer of series like New Teen Titans and Crisis on Infinite Earths is returning to the publisher where his career started as Marvel Comics has announced Wolfman will pen an upcoming What If…? Dark: Tomb of Dracula one-shot. Wolfman will be joined by artists David Cutler and Scott Hanna for the issue, which will sport a cover by Giuseppe CamuncoliArtGerm will provide a variant for the issue.

Here’s how Marvel describes What If…? Dark: Tomb of Dracula #1:

Wolfman redefined comic book horror storytelling in his groundbreaking run of THE TOMB OF DRACULA, where he introduced Dracula to the Marvel Universe and co-created Blade and the daughter of Dracula, Lilith Drake. Now, decades later, he’ll revisit his mythology-molding work with a new WHAT IF…? story that asks the question, “WHAT IF…the legendary Dracula transformed Blade the vampire slayer…into a vampire?!”

In a statement announcing the new one-shot, Wolfman described the feeling of returning to the characters he got his start on:

“In 1972 I was a fledgling comics writer who mostly wrote short 2 to 8 page ‘monster’ stories when Editor Roy Thomas asked if I’d like to write Tomb of Dracula, my very first series for Marvel, and the book that would jump-start my career,” Wolfman recollected. “So it is a real thrill now that 50-plus years later Marvel asked me to once again dive into that pool with this very special What If…? story, and to bring back that great cast of characters that artist Gene Colan and I created so many years ago. Thank you, Marvel, for giving me the chance to play with old friends one last time.“

“One last time”? You make it sound so final, Marv.

Marvel executive editor Nick Lowe also weighed in on Wolfman’s return:

“Getting Marv back on TOMB OF DRACULA is a bucket list check-off,” says Exec. Editor Nick Lowe. “He hasn’t lost a step and the opportunity to pair him with David Cutler and Scott Hanna to make a story that’s both love letter and one of the scariest and creepiest and NEW vampire stories I’ve read made it all the better!”
