Captain Britain Teaser - Dr. Doom and Dracula - on the Moon

Dr. Doom and Dracula - on the Moon

Doom, Moon, Apollo

Admittedly (okay, surprisingly to the cynics) we don't run every Marvel teaser image they send out, because...well, there wouldn't be much room for anything else; and frankly, that's what we figured Marvel.com is for.

But this one - for February's Captain Britain and MI 13 #10 has just the right ingredients to make us raise en eyebrow on a slow Monday afternoon. Yes, the idea of Dr. Doom and Dracula at an Apollo landing site on the moon kind of starts bringing visions of '60s science fiction washing back over us - in a good way.

The information Marvel sent along with the teaser image says:

CAPTAIN BRITAIN AND MI13 #10 (DEC082360)

Written by PAUL CORNELL

Penciled by LEONARD KIRK

Cover by STUART IMMONEN

Rated T+ …$2.99

FOC—1/22/09, On-Sale—2/11/09

The full-on solicitation for the issue reads:

The king of the vampires is back. As if the hoards of demons that Pete Wisdom let out in order to defeat the Skrulls in England weren’t enough, now DRACULA has entered the scene. What does he want with Spitfire? And how will an election help his cause? You better hope that Captain Britain and the rest of MI13 have a way to defeat him!

But hey - it's apparently got Dr. Doom and Dracula on the moon in it, too.
