Transylvanian Tourist Trap

Anthony de Mariaffi, my Transylvania born Father-In-Law, is always a little irked by the indeservedly ghoulish reputation of his homeland... though he certainly enjoys terrifying kids with his Lugosi-ish accent come Hallowe'en. This great 'ad' from Bats is exactly the kind of thing he finds offensive. Of course, some of the childhood stories he tells are weirder than anything I've ever read in a comic book... not that he would ever admit that Transylvania's reputation might be based on more than a little fact! When I was last over there, I wasn't the least bit dissapointed by the wild countryside or vast hillside castles.
