In a recent interview with a leading news outlet, writer of the series Tim Seeley revealed more information about it.
The Tim Seeley written series and art by Logan Faerber will feature Blade doing what he does the best and that is hunting down vampires. But there will be a twist to the story which will come after 50 years have passed. After having fought the supernatural monsters for this long, Blade will start losing edge and also seem to forget why he has been fighting and hating the monsters all this while. It is being said at a crucial moment like this, he will be meeting his teenage daughter whose personality is being described as somewhat opposite to that of Peter Parker and is someone who is popular and knows what she is doing with her life. On being asked about any possible comparisons that readers might make, the writer/creator maintained that he has avoided watching any other material similar to his so that he could be true to his creation.
Before concluding, Mr. Seeley also mentioned that fans should expect a variety of monsters as he aims to steer away from vampires. The first issue will hit shelves in October.
