New Blade Comic Goes On Sale Today

For all the comic book fans out there, Marvel will have the new Blade comic on sale today. You can find details here. Apparently both Spider-Man and Dracula will be making an appearance in this first issue.

First issue details:
BLADE #1 (JUL061951)
32 PGS./Rated T+ ...$2.99
FOC – 8/31, On Sale – 9/20/2006

I know a few readers are wondering if I'll be picking up the comic and talking about it here. Sadly, no, I won't. While it'd be nice to broaden the site to cover all aspects of Blade, I think it might get in the way of the real focus... the television series. I'll definitely cover big events relating to Blade such as this new comic series as well as if there are any announcements of new movies, etc, but I won't be covering the comic books in a more detailed fashion.

Okay, the truth also is that I personally don't like to read. I don't really have the attention span for it. While comic books are much lighter on the reading, they are still something I can't really get into.

So there you have it. If you're a fan of comic books and a fan of Blade, you may want to check out the first issue of the new comic as it does sound intriguing.

    Heh... the truth not only suprised me but had me laughing. I am very suprised (not a bad thing just unexpected) of this revelation of your personae. At any rate thanks for the candidness and I tend to agree with the basis of your decision. Thanks also for posting the comic information! Cheers!

  2. Squirrelinabox Said:

    Yeah, I know it's kind of weird that somebody who writes this much content doesn't read at all. If you want to know something even weirder, one of my million side projects is actually a novel that I'm writing. How's that for odd?

  3. Jeff Thomas Said:

    Extremely odd but hey thats what the worlds about. Good luck with the novel.... any hints to the premise?

  4. Squirrelinabox Said:

    Well, it's pretty much just straight fiction. Just some normal people doing normal things with a pretty good twist. I can't really go into it too much as it's still early and I haven't worked on it in a few months.

  5. Jeff Thomas Said:

    Should be a hit.... wasnt that the premise of "Friends" excepting there was no twist!! Cant wait to read it!

  6. Squirrelinabox Said:

    Yeah well it'll likely be a few years before I complete it, especially since I have so many other projects that have priority right now.

  7. Holly Said:

    I think it's great that your writing a novel squirrel. I happen to be writing a novel too. I also do not read to much only really interesting books,so don't feel bad.

  8. Mike Said:

    I'll definitely be reading the comics. To me it seems like there's a chance that Goyer will bring some storylines from the comics over to the TV series. (I'd love it if he brought over the Imposter Frost storyline.) He brought Steppin' Razor, Damek, Moon Knight (Even though he's only been mentioned in the series), and Cthon over from the comics, so I don't see why he wouldn't bring others. Thus the main reason I'll be reading the comics. It makes his versions of the comic characters that much more interesting.
