Letters by Cory Petit

The Rundown: Blade goes to an unusual teacher to unlock the darkness within him.

With the Adana on the loose and having lost the first round to her, Blade is forced to seek training from the one man he never thought could help him, Dracula. Dracula agrees to help the daywalker but explains to him that he will need to become more than he is if he stands any chance of winning.

After embracing his inner darkness, Blade learns more about not only his teacher, but his own nature as well. A lesson he will have to learn fast when he gets a call from a powerful ally connected to the events unfolding.

The Story: Hill crafts an intense, enjoyable and entertaining story in this issue. The confrontation between Blade and Dracula was beautifully done and showed a depth of character for both that I wasn’t expecting and thoroughly enjoyed. The story crafts something new and different for Blade that I want to see more of and the end of the issue makes me excited to see what happens in the next one.

The Art: Ferguson delivers some beautiful art in the issue. I love the simplicity of framing both characters in almost every scene and how they visually contrast with each other.
