"Vampire attacks are on the rise in London, and there are whispers of the return of the Dark Lord Dracula. Evil walks the streets, spreading terror and fear, yet there is also something...sorcerous in the air. An evil plot is brewing in the Dark Dimension, threatening to bubble over to more than just London. Spitfire races into action, joining S.H.I.E.L.D. in the fight against vampires, while Dr.strange rescues an old rival, to aid in their search for three shadowy spell-casters."
