‘Creature Feature’ host hunts monsters in Dark Horse’s ‘Count Crowley’

Actor David Dastmalchian has appeared in several films comics fans probably recognize, including The Dark Knight and Ant-Man, and come October he’ll be writing a new comic for Dark Horse titled Count Crowley: Reluctant Midnight Monster Hunter.
