If there's a chill in your spine...a nervous churning in the pit of your stomach...and a sense of foreboding all about your spirit...then it's time for the second HOUSE OF MYSTERY HALLOWEEN ANNUAL!
It not only has some terrific tales of zombies and other supernatural monsters, it includes some questions answered by the many talented folks who had a hand in putting it together.
Here, we’ve asked them the age old question Vampires or Werewolves? Check out their answers below!
I'd say that personally I prefer werewolves, although as some of you might remember from last year's Annual, having always been afraid of monsters I've never even dared to dress up as one of those nasty creatures. The only "monster" I've ever done, and more than once, is the mummy! One of the coolest and fastest Halloween "homemade" costumes one can ever make!
I love werewolves, they are fantastic horror creatures. I've always had a good feeling with them maybe because when I was 8 months old a dog bit my cheek so I've been cursed too! You can see me at work when it's a full moon (see sketch).
I like werewolves better, a guy who turns into a wolf could still be a cool guy. Being an undead creature that feeds off the living seems like a jerk move.

I think werewolves. I know that vampires are obviously sexual and sexy – which in the modern world is tantamount to being cool. But I like the solitary hairiness of the werewolf. The painful nocturnal transformation seems to say something about the creative process.
The vampire is definitely my favorite. I’m very fond of Bela Lugosi and Christopher Lee and their awesome interpretations of Dracula. Not only that, but I feel as if this character is absolutely the only one that represents, in the best of ways, the monster all of us will always be afraid of.
Werewolves are cooler, but they don't get good press. If they had the kind of PR that vampires get, werewolves would be HUGE.
To answer that question, I have to consider which would I rather be? I have to go with Vampire. Vampires are immortal, can be charming and have a seductive side to them, and most importantly, can get around much easier and without being noticed. . Werewolves are bestial by nature, noisy and most are at the mercy of the moon. I mean, what if you’re at the movie theater and you begin to change? With the cost of movies today, that would suck...
