"U.S.Avengers": A Guide to Marvel's New Patriotic Superhero Team
Editor’s Note: As mentioned earlier today, we’re celebrating Halloween all this week here at Robot 666. Here’s the first of six Six by 6 columns with that theme, by guest contributors Tony Trov and Johnny Zito. They are the creators of Black Cherry Bombshells, the girl-on-zombie web comic from Zuda Comics. This October saw the debut of their newest title, LaMorte Sisters, about a vampire orphanage run by strict nuns.

(In no particular order)
1. The Count
Tony Trov: The Count is a mysterious force on Sesame Street. He has these neurotic ticks that makes him really intense. The Count counts things, even when there’s just one. His math OCD makes him great at figuring out the tip.
2. The Lost Boys
Johnny Zito: Nothing’s cooler than drinking weird substances out of bejeweled bottles in a crazy vampire cave with Kiefer Sutherland. Raising terror on Santa Carla Boardwalk looks like a lot of fun, too. Unfortunately, all the Chinese food out west sucks. Ew, maggots.
3. Salma Hayek
Tony Trov: I like when people bring their pets to the bar. Dogs are cool but snakes are bad ass. Drinking with the Vampire Queen from From Dusk ’til Dawn doesn’t necessarily mean she’ll put her foot in your mouth. But I’m OK with it either way.
Johnny Zito: Vampirella is the crazy girl dancing on the bar, knocking back Walker Red. She’s gonna leave you broke and send you home with bruises. It’s worth it though, your ex will be so jealous when the pictures hit Facebook… Please take me back, Elvira?
Tony Trov: The OG vamp from the days of silent film is celebrity royalty. I’d really like to kick back with the old man and ask what it was like meeting David Bowie and Freddie Mercury on the set of their music video for Under Pressure.
6. The Brides of Dracula
Johnny Zito: With wingmen this good we could ALL be smooth as Dracula.
Tony Trov: Let us know if we missed any vampires worth boozing with.
Johnny Zito: And please check out LaMorteSisters.com every Friday for more vampire action.
