Letters Column: Tomes to the Tomb!
Dracula and Topaz have been transported to Hell where they stand face to face with Satan himself. Satan is furious with Dracula for using his name in vein far too often and has decided to end the vampires eternal existence once and for all. After much gloating, and explaining the necessity of those who would call themselves Satan, as they provide the temptation that humanity would have to fight against, Satan explains to them that Topaz's mystical skill poses a future threat to them, and that Dracula has already put into motion events that could potentially lead to Satan's destruction, and to that end that is why both most be destroyed. When Dracula offers defiance, he is struck down by Satan's powers, detecting that Dracula is not dead, Topaz inquires what Satan had done to the vampire lord. Satan merely tells the girl that she will find out soon enough. While back on Earth, Frank and Rachel have taken Domini to meet with Quincy Harker to discuss their plans to destroy Dracula. Domini tells Quincy that his quest is over, as the Dracula they knew is now destroyed. Domini manages to shake the group when she suggests that they should not fear or hate, but learn to love. This hits Rachel the hardest when she comes to realize that she has never felt love in a very long time. While elsewhere, a wealthy man who's daughter had fallen victim to Dracula hires bounty hunter Francis Leroy "Cowboy" Brown to hunt down and destroy Dracula. While back in Hell, Topaz is told by Satan that Dracula is not dead, only changed and prepares to destroy her. However, Topaz defends herself with her magical powers, and despite Satan's best efforts to destroy her, he fails. Finding himself completely overwhelmed and close to defeat for the first time in millennia, he transports both humans back to Earth. When Dracula's return is spotted by Rachel, she goes out to attack him, however when Dracula turns to face her, she is shocked to find that Dracula has been turned into a human once more.
