#753: Fiendishly Confusing

This Comic's Cast:

I put Blacula in this word of crisp white whiteness because I needed villains here. The two sides of DSWC, Heroes and Villains, have to mirror each other, so if I was going to explore this place with Richter and Co. I had to do the same with someone evil. Blacula works, but his being here does raise some issues I'll address now.

The big one is: why is he here? His backstory is that he's an African prince who was turned into a vampire by Dracula. There's nothing in his setup that stops him from existing in the actual world of the comic. Presumably he'd be right back in prison as a vampire, stuck back where he was long, long ago before he escaped.

That or he'd just be dead. Never turned into a vampire, never imprisoned. He lived out his life in Africa and died of natural causes centuries ago. That also makes sense.

Still, most of the minions would still be around in Romania in this new continuity. Only Blacula could, in any reasonable thought, possibly work as someone that was removed from continuity. And also Shaft, since he's constantly dead/not dead, so we can accept his place here.


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.
