Super Mates Episode 38: The Vampire Lovers / Superman & Batman Meet “Skeeter”!

It’s BACK!!! Chris and Cindy return to the House of Franklin-Stein!!! Our Halloween Horror series kicks off with a look at the classic Hammer film, The Vampire Lovers! Based on Sheridan Le Fanu’s “Carmilla”, Ingrid Pitt stars as a vampire with a lust for love…and blood! She targets young girls who she longs to make her own…in her own vampiric image, that is! Will Peter Cushing and a group of vampire hunters stop her in time?


Then we dig into the cobweb covered comic long boxes to read Action Comics Annual #1, by John Byrne, Art Adams and Dick Giordano. In this early Post-Crisis tale, the World’s Finest team of Superman and Batman must unite to face the unholy threat of a seemingly innocent young girl named “Skeeter”!
