Count Ickula is a character from Wouter's one off comic from the same name. He's the hero of a story Daria makes up while reading bed time stories for Tad and Tricia Gupty. In that story she describes Count Ickula as a Vampire who is fond of beauty and uses his curse to help young women remain beautiful by helping them to get rid of skin imperfections and acne. Doing so by actually eating the blackheads and drinking the moisture inside zits. She closes her story by stating that if people say "ICK!" in disgust or proclaim that something is "Icky", they're actually saluting Count Ickula.
The Comic was nominated for the best multipanel story in 2007.
