SDCC 2015: The Return of Blade…and his daughter?!

While I was busy finishing the finale research for my Masters degree (Yay me!) apparently our favorite vampire hunter, Blade was making his return to the world of comics. Word across the internet is that he’s not just returning but taking along his daughter as well. What daughter you ask? Let’s meet her together:

Blade-1-Promo-by-Tim-Seeley-23c99She’s lean, she’s mean and she has no idea she’s the daughter of a monster killing machine! This October, it’s the Marvel Universe’s resident vampire hunter like you’ve never seen before in BLADE #1 – a brand new ongoing series from writer Tim Seeley (Death of Wolverine: The Logan Legacy) and artist Logan Faerber (Secret Wars: Battleworld)!

Meet Fallon Grey. A normal sixteen year old girl from rural Oregon. Nominated for Prom Queen, Captain of the Debate Team, most popular girl in her class. But there is another side to Fallon. A feeling like there’s something else going on inside. When terror strikes her small town, she’ll find out just how right she was. As fearsome supernatural forces invade her town, hunting her down – she’ll come face to face with something even more shocking than the monsters on her tail.

Eric Brooks…Blade…her father?!

“[Fallon’s] sort of ‘anti-Peter Parker’,” says Tim Seeley in an interview with Marvel.com. “She’s popular, she’s well-liked, and it seems like the world is her oyster. But, the expectations that come with being so damn perfect are starting to break her down, and that’s before she learns she’s the heir to a Daywalking-Monster-Stabbing-Empire.”

But there is a new evil brewing deep in the forests of Oregon. A new cult of monster scientists, twisting and mutating demons, vampires, werewolves and more into even powerful new creatures. To stop them it will take more than one Daywalker. And in each other, Eric and Fallon may just discover the purpose they’ve each been struggling to find. Don’t miss the highly anticipated new series when it debuts this October in BLADE #1!

    They have been screwing up blade origin story lately. For example, his father is white. I hope they take more pride in creating an origin for Fallon. And can I have a Blade series that will last more then 12 issues?

    I’ll give it the usual (2-issue shot) to sell me on it. So far I’d rather have just blade whooping ass. We’ll see, they gonna do whatever they want anyway

      Yeah I feel the same way. It’s very hard not to prejudge this upcoming series when there seems to be a lack of interest in doing anything original or compelling with Blade. Or maybe I’m just a cup half empty type of guy? I guess we’ll see when Blade meets his daughter, BUFFY the Vamp….. Oops! I’m sorry I meant, Fallon Grey.
