Synopsis for "Batman Versus the Vampire, Part 2"

The Batman pursues his enemy the Monk into Hungary. He hijacks a speeding carriage using choking gas and kidnaps the woman inside. Traveling in his Batgyro, he takes this woman back to his hotel. The woman introduces herself as Dala. Batman has her sleep in the same room as his other guest, Bruce Wayne's fiancee Julie Madison. In the middle of the night, Dala sleepwalks out of the room. Batman realizes that she has fresh blood on her lips. Dala snaps out of her trance and hits Batman with a statue, then escapes. Batman realizes that Dala is a vampire, and she bit Julie. Batman chases Dala and makes her talk about the Monk. Dala insists that she will only tell Batman about the Monk if he promises to kill him, as she hates the Monk too.

Batman and Dala leave to pursue the Monk. Batman tells Julie that she must stay, and resist any psychic urge to return to the Monk. As Batman approaches the villain's castle by air, the Batgyro is caught in a silver net, and dragged into the castle. The Monk hypnotically overpowers Batman, and forces him to march to his doom. Dala suggests that the Monk telepathically summon Julie, to make his revenge against Batman perfect. Some time later, Julie arrives, on foot, and the Monk threatens to turn her into a werewolf such as himself. Batman is lowered into a pit of wolves that the Monk summons from the forest. It is too deep for him to get out using his silk rope. The wolves attack and Batman is able to subdue them with choking gas. Finally he escapes by using his batarang to throw the rope onto a pillar. The castle is asleep, and Batman checks that Julie is okay. Using a candle, he melts a silver statue into two silver bullets. Batman loads the silver bullets into the gun he carries with him at all times. He finds Dala and the Monk sleeping in their coffins, and shoots them both to death. The spell on Julie is broken, and they are able to safely return to America.

Notes

  • This book was first published on August 30, 1939.
  • Published by Detective Comics, Inc.

  • "Batman Versus the Vampire" was re-imagined by writer/artist Matt Wagner for the 2006-07 limited series Batman and the Mad Monk.
  • The Batgyro is first referred to as the Batplane in this issue.
  • Throughout this issue, writer Gardner Fox consistently conflates vampires with werewolves. This may be due to the fact that some vampires exhibit characteristics similar to that of werewolf, or the Monk may have simply been, in life, a werewolf, before becoming a vampire.
