Joe Staton - Countess von Bludd
2017.07.09 Garden State Comic Fest, Morristown, NJ
This was not the first time I had the honor of meeting Joe Staton. He has been involved with comics since 1971, starting out with Charlton Comics. where he co-created one of his best known creations E-Man. Staton has be honored with Inkpot Award, Eisner Awards and Harvey Awards. Staton is still hard at work in the comic industry....
The Countess was the creation of Joe Staton and Nicola Cuti, as the hostess and narrator for Charlton Comics' Scary Tales

Scary Tales had three stories, the introduction has kids sneaking into a haunted house to meet the Countess, the second "The Vampire's Bride" is narrated by the Countess and the third "The Wedding Gift" tells how the Countess became a vampire..
