So I watched Captain Kronos, Vampire Hunter a couple weeks ago. It's not Hammer Pictures best, but still pretty entertaining; and has a bit of fun with vampires having different variations with different weaknesses. Some vampires were vulnerable to the traditional wooden stake in the heart, while others would laugh that off, but could be killed by hanging, and so forth. On the other hand, I always love it when the cop is all "It couldn't possibly be a werewolf!...but, eh, let's get some silver bullets anyway, why not."

From 1974, House of Mystery #227, "The Carriage Man" Script by Michael Fleisher, art by Alfred Alcala. The werewolf isn't the most unbelievable aspect of this story: wouldn't that horse be completely spooked and take off in a panic? Well, maybe not if this was like the twenty or thirtieth time it's happened, anyway.
