The wonder The universe has a lot of avenues in the horror realm – one of them being vampires. And of course, there’s one Marvel character that comes to mind every time you think of these leeches: Blade. But what if his worst nightmare came true?
“The Darkhold: Blade” opens a new reality and places Blade in the midst of a world overrun by vampires. This kind of fun alternate universe problem gives us some insight into how Blade would handle this horrific new kind of world.
The full might of the Darkhold has been unleashed on a group of heroes, including Blade, and sent them to alternate worlds where their worst nightmares have come true. For Blade, that means the planet has been overrun by vampires.
Something changed everyone on Earth, turning them into a vampire or a human. That means there are no more mutants, inhumans, or anything like that. You can imagine the drastic changes this made to the universe, leaving so many familiar characters with very different lives.
Blade isn’t the only one who has to adapt to the situation. Wilson Fisk is the vampire ruler in New York City as so many others try to manage their new lives. Blade’s mission, on the other hand, is simple: kill all the vampires. In a world of mostly blood and fangs, that means Blade is very busy.
This is a simple and fun Halloween story for those looking to put a little spooky in their comics. It’s heavy action, but obviously not your typical superhero action. No capes and laser eyes here. Just swords and fangs and a lot of vampire hits.
Due to the nature of this overall series and the simplicity of this particular issue, this is a great comic for anyone to check out. Yes, it’s part of a bigger story, but with the way this story is told, it’s almost more of an anthology of sorts. There isn’t a lot of context needed to jump in and enjoy this fun vampire comic book.
Even though this story is so simple, it does not lack surprises at all. There are fun twists and turns around every corner and even surprise characters showing up. There’s a lot more going on here than just blade-edged vampires, it’s all contained in this weird new world.
And yet, this issue still manages to generate excitement for the entire series. These characters were introduced to these nightmarish new worlds that, at least on the surface, don’t seem to be connected. You can’t help but wonder how these stories will overlap and how our heroes will come out of these horrific stories. And even if they go out, how will they be changed?
