Between the premiere of the new "Twilight" movie, the "Curse of the Mutants" storyline launching in the X-Men tomorrow, and the thousand other stories, comics and goddamn cell phone commercials about vampires that sprout up every time you kick over a rock, one could be forgiven for feeling a little weary of the mythical bloodsucking monsters, who have managed to supplant zombies as the favorite overused trope in comics of the moment.
Regardless, we would be completely remiss if this glut kept us from recognizing how cool Ben Templesmith's original cover of "Bram Stoker's Dracula" is -- and when we say cover, we mean

Marvel's Heroic Age is going to be a time of bright, shiny fun and inspirational heroes who don't need to fear the dark forces of Norman Os- ... Wait, what? Vampires are coming back to ruin our fun? SWEET!
