Ohhhh, a new Blade series? Better yet, a series about his family – specifically his daughter? Um, yes, please! Bloodline: Daughter of Blade #1 is exactly the sort of series I’ve been hoping for. I just hadn’t realized it until now.

Brielle Brooks is your typical teenage girl. She loves sports, gets into trouble with her teachers (even when she’s done nothing wrong), and may or may not be developing superpowers. Wait, what was that last one?

While it may seem like Daughter of Blade #1 is your typical ‘teenage-girl-gets-superpowers story, I feel it will be anything but. For one thing, the subtlety and slight sense of humor are so on point; I love it.

For another? As the daughter of Blade, you just know she’s going to get into all sorts of mayhem, and she’s not going to play the stereotypical superhero role either. I can’t wait to see where this plot leads!

The artwork is perfect – bold and charming. I love Brielle’s design and look forward to watching her learn how to fight and deal with her new abilities.
