This week there some surprising news out of Wesley Snipes camp, he’s been talking to Marvel about the return of the Daywalker! Could he show up on Netflix’s Daredevil? It would probably be the best place place considering the R rated Vampire’s violent methods. There aren’t many collectible Blade comics but here are the ones I like:
Tomb of Dracula 10 / Le Tombeau De Dracula 10
This one is well known appearance of Blade. For fans of foreign versions here is the French edition too.
Blade Trinity Platinum DVD Nightstalking Mini Comic
With a print run of 12,500 this extremely rare comic features the origin of Abigail Whistler, daughter of legendary vampire hunter and Blade trainer Whistler.
Book and Record Set
This 1974 book and record set is a very early appearance of Blade and is often overlooked by collectors.
Adventure into Fear 24 & 25
Blade’s first foray into another title pitted him against the fangs of the Spider-Man foe Morbius. Much like Morbius, Blade has always been unable to sustain a long run in a monthly title.
Vampire Tales 8
Blade’s first appearance in a magazine sized publication is not easy to find in NM. It is also the first appearance of the Vampire Legion.
Marvel Preview Presents 3
Filled with a litany of incredible Blade tales by the likes of Stan Lee and Gene Colan, this one should be in every Blade fans collection!
Castle of Horror 2
Another early Blade appearance and the origin of Morbius make this one collectible. I have found that magazine size horror, comic and fantasy books from the Bronze age are becoming increasingly harder and harder to find in high grade.
Blade 1 Variant ( 1999 )
Here’s an amazing Bart Sears cover for this hard to find variant. It’s also one of the only modern Blade comics I would ever want in my collection.
