Batman vs. Dracula?! The Custom Aurora Kit You Never Saw! DC Comics!

Fresh from the pages of SHADOWLAND magazine, here is one fan's very creative imagining of a meeting between those two cape-wearing creatures of the night--Batman and Dracula! This feverish fan (using the moniker "Davey Horror") used both classic 60s Aurora model kits to produce a dynamic diorama that joins these two terrors in blistering battle! He was also inspired by the famed 1976 issue of DETECTIVE COMICS #455, from 1976, an incredible issue that depicted Batman meeting a voracious vampire (whom artist Mike Grell modeled on horror actor Christopher Lee)! A great job all around! Click images below to enlarge!

BONUS! Click below to see another custom Batman Aurora kit, from the same mind-blowing magazine!

This talented customizer created his own "Golden Age" Batman kit, using the
early black-and-gray costume color scheme, the plain "moon-less" bat
chest logo, and overall subdued color scheme!

BONUS BONUS! Glance below to see yet another colossal custom kit, using the same basic Aurora Batman kit! 
Of course, this diorama re-creates the famed "Batman vs the shark" scene from the
1966 BATMAN theatrical movie, with Adam West as the Caped Crime-Buster!
