The Rundown: Blade learns of a weapon that can defeat the Adana while the demon prepares to change the world.
The Adana continues to make its presence known after easily defeating a group of sorcerers sent to stop it. At the same time, Blade deals with being possessed by a demon determined to kill Tulip.
In the aftermath, Tulip tells Blade about a magical weapon that can potentially kill the Adana. Unfortunately, it is in the hands of a dangerous person who is always on the move. When Blade and his allies are attacked in public, they receive a much-needed rescue from a familiar face.
The Story: Hill crafts a fun, frenetic and action-packed story in this issue. The story has a fantastic blend of horror and dark humor throughout and caps it all with fantastic action and adventure. The issue delivers on everything that makes Blade a great character and culminates in not only a great quest for the character with high stakes, but an awesome reveal at the end of the issue that makes me excited for the next installment.
The Art: Casagrande and Pinti deliver fantastic art that beautifully brings to life the great action and horror in the issue.
