Retribution in Blood

Retribution in Blood
Story by Don Glut, art by David Wenzel
from Savage Sword of Conan (Marvel / Curtis), #26, January 1978

Marvel had Solomon Kane tangle with Dracula in issue 3 of their black and white comic magazine Dracula Lives (October 1973). That memorable encounter ended in a draw. 

It was nearly five years later before Marvel offered a rematch, this time in issue 26 of The Savage Sword of Conan.

As with the first installment, this episode suffers somewhat from the tendency to have too many panels and too much dialogue crammed into each page. But David Wenzel's art is of good quality, and Don Glut's script avoids another draw.......I won't disclose any spoilers, but I will say that either Kane, or Dracula, will not survive this fight.........
