The story concerns Batman's efforts to stop a mad doctor named Herbert Combs--get it?--who has been turning people into vampires and werewolves through means that are equally scientific and occult. (I may not have been reading closely enough, but I was never clear as to how this played into his endgame.) Along the way, he receives some help from his abovementioned allies, as well as Nightwing. (Wonder Woman also makes an appearance, but she is never seen interacting with the other heroes.)
The artwork by comics veteran Tom Mandrake is excellent and even a little reminiscent of Gene Colan's work on Tomb of Dracula. It definitely contributes to a story that, while it doesn't quite live up to its premise, is still fun and appropriate for October reading.
Lovecraft lore is written into this story as fact, with the scientist using this to open up portals to let in the undead. Lots of gory fistfights don't leave Batman any room to do any sleuthing. Surprisingly no Joker or Two-Face here. No apparent plot, merely thematic horror. Slushy artwork not to my taste.
