Countdown to Halloween 2017 Day 29: Dark Shadows Werewolf Trading Card

This Alex Stevens as the Werewolf is from the 1993 Dark Shadows set:

TMC had the two Dark Shadows movies yesterday afternoon. I missed the House of Dark Shadows with vampire Barnabas but watched the Night of Dark Shadows with the ghost Angelique. I've seen both of them countless times and still have the on VHS (note to self: get them on DVD one of these days). A third Dark Shadows movie was planned but never made and I believed it would have had a werewolf in it. I have never seen an episode of the series with the werewolf in it. Of course, I've seen the reboot movie with Johnny Depp and thought it was okay but not great. I have watched a few episodes from the Dark Shadows binge on the Decades channel. Most of them, I have seen a few times from when the series was on SyFy channel.

I'm a big fan of this character and actually have several comics with him including a few from his various solo titles. His rhyming speech pattern used to drive me nuts but it actually grew on me as I got older.

To be honest, I'm not a fan of the show. I watched the first few episodes and just couldn't get into it. I don't have any other trading cards from this set or any other based on the show.
