Here’s the next vampire on the list!

Niccolai Tepes, also known as the Monk, first popped up in the fifth Batman story ever!!
A two-part story titled, appropriately enough, Batman versus the Vampire.
It led to Batman handing out hardcore justice.

MANY years later, Matt Wagner devoted an awesome mini-series to the character (now called the Mad Monk)…
Check out this homage cover…
And this awesome fighting cover…
This nice cover was used for the TPB…
They should totally bring the Monk back!!! A vampire villain for Batman would rule!
