This Comic's Cast:

We'll get to Death's plan in a bit. For now, let's just discuss his transformation. Death always has multiple forms (at least once he verged out of the NES era... and if we ignore SCV4 -- just go with me on this). The second form is usually more powerful, so we can think of it as his "battle form". That's what he's got going on here. He's in attack mode and is throwing everything he has (literally, in this case) at Dracula.

This might reflect badly on his performance review at the end of the year. Just sayin'.

Given that Dracula never stays dead, hitching a ride with his soul IS the best option/
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
