Blade: Sins Of The Father

A prelude and tie-in to the 1998 Blade movie, starring Wesley Snipes.  Blade is put on the trail of a vampire mob boss by none other than the crimelord's vampire daughter, but no alliance with the undead goes entirely to plan.

It's strange to think that before Snipes brought the character to life on the big screen, Blade was a C-list Marvel character probably best known for his brief appearance on the Spider-Man cartoon series.  What that means is this book is a strange balance of an unfamiliar version of Blade and the writer and artists not having seen to new movie for cues.  It's neither the comic book Blade nor the movie version, but somewhere in between.

The story itself isn't bad but doesn't have anything particularly innovative about it.  I guess I'd describe this book as a 'serviceable' story of the vampire hunter.
