#SDCC15: Marvel Kicking Off a New Blade Comic Series in October

Well this is interesting… and could be a way for Wesley Snipes to return once more as the Blade character and then pass on the torch.  Marvel has a new Blade comic series beginning in October that features his daughter, Fallon.  It has “film franchise” written all over it, and we have the details and some artwork for you here.

From the Press Release:
She’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), who also drew the variant cover below, 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?!

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.

“[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.”

Don’t miss the highly anticipated new series when it debuts this October with BLADE #1!
