This October: El Santo vs. The Vampire Women

My namesake, the legendary luchador El Santo — a.k.a. Rodolfo Guzmán Huerta, a.k.a. el Enmascarado de Plata, a.k.a. Samson — made himself world famous by taking on not only world class wrestlers like Blue Demon and Gory Guerrero, but also a wide assortment of colorful yet malevolent foes whose talents lay beyond those required in the squared circle and into the realms of the criminal underworld, the supernatural, the otherworldly, and karate expertise.

Just look at this filmography and marvel at the depth of his opponents:


The Diabolical Brain.

The King of Crime.

The Mafia of Vice.


Frankenstein’s daughter.

Karate Experts.

The Martian Invasion.

The Killers from Other Worlds.

That’s a lot of work for a humble wrestler! I mean, sure, if The Rock or Bret Hart had to face The King of Crime, Martians, and/or Karate Experts, I’m sure they’d totally People’s Elbow and/or Sharpshooter these jabronis into defeat … but they can’t beat this incredible track record. That’s what makes El Santo the Greatest Wrestler In The World.

His most famous foes by far, though, were The Vampire Women. This is the one where vampire women manage to capture and almost unmask our hero when they are single-handedly defeated by a unlikely tag team partner: sunlight. After which El Santo heroically picks up a torch and burns a bunch of sleeping women their deaths. Yeah. But, hey, dude’s got a kickass Jaguar.


So, in honor of my namesake, I shall be doing the same. As El Santo once fought the Vampire Women, I, the webcomic reviewer El Santo, shall be taking on the Vampire Women webcomics.

October is the month of El Santo vs. The Vampire Women.


I’ll be start the vampire hunt with three webcomics prominently featuring female vampires: Eerie Cuties, School Bites, and Annyseed. Not to worry… El Santo will save you from the vampire women! If you know of any other webcomics featuring vampire women, please contact the proper authorities by posting a link in the comments section and we’ll try to send a licensed vampire hunter right away.

NOTE: fanfiction prominently featuring Edward Cullen are not welcome. What is this, El Santo vs. The Vampire MEN? However, if said fanfiction’s main character is a vampire woman who is in love with Edward Cullen, we will consider it pending board review.


About El Santo

Somehow ended up reading and reviewing almost 300 different webcomics. Life is funny, huh? Despite owning two masks, is not actually a luchador.

  1. Whoa! is this a challenge ?!

    • You have nothing to fear as long as your kung-fu is strong and your vampire counter maneuver can defeat my Topé de Cristo finisher.

      Actually, though, I was going to dispose of the typical review and ratings and go for snarky recaps, Agony Booth style. This was mainly because the three comics I’ve mentioned so far (including yours) are relatively new. This doesn’t mean I’m going to be nice … I just won’t be delivering any points-based rulings (which are the most controversial parts of my reviews).

  2. LOL…weeel I’m a white belt but I have nice sharp chompers : D
    and I can’t always draw you in a compromising position with a tutu and rubber chicken…I’m sure you wouldn’t want that gettin’ out into the public
    ; )
    I think you’re neato!

  3. Definitely not about vampire women, but Sam & Fuzzy just ended its excellent “Edwin the Vampire” segment, well worth checking out if you aren’t following SnF already. 🙂

  4. Need I remind you that Last Res0rt is centered around yet another vampire chick? Bonus points for her not being a little teeny-bopper!

  5. Hmm… I haven’t read this comic myself but it looks like there is a vampire chick right on the banner!

    • Heh! I just ran into that last night by typing “vampire webcomic” into Google. Anyway, the art looks nice, so I’m going to have to check that one out too.
