VAMPIRE TALES #2 (1973): 1st Satana, Digger

Morbius is the headliner of this magazine, and he gets a serialized story covered here.

It’s the last story in this comic that’s important…

It’s very short, nearly wordless, and it debuts the character who will later be cast as Son of Satan’s sister. She steals the soul of a man who assaults her at night and is referred to as the “Devil’s Daughter.”

This issue also marks the debut of Digger–who I jointly tag as Frankenstein because in future stories he’s clearly a stand-in for the monster.

I never realized he was created by the great Jim Steranko, who wrote AND drew this story!
