I'm looking foward to this one. I was a huge fan of the Nightstalkers comic. For those who don't know, It centered around Frank Drake(vampire
hunter, descendant of Dracula) Hannibal King(reluctant vampire) and of course, Blade(recently released mental patient). The trio operated as The
Borderline Investigative Services. The series itself started in the 70's, dissapeared for awhile, then came back for a short run in the 90's. The
series ended with the death of Drake and Hannibal, but Blade got his own series(again, short lived). There was also the graphic mini-series TOMB OF
I've been awaiting the inclusion of Frank and Hannibal in the Blade movies ever since the original came out. I really hope they play up the tension
between the three of them. You see, Hannibal and Frank got along fine, but Blade didn't like either of them at first. He thought Frank was too weak
willed and spoiled, and Hannibal, well lets just say Blade wanted to kill all vampires, not just the bad ones.
Many Blade fans may not realize this, but Blade was a freakin' nutcase in the original series. For those interested in the history of the Blade
saga, I would suggest searching for some of the above stated titles.
