Blade: Undead Again Review (Marc Guggenheim, Howard Chaykin)
Books like Marc Guggenheim and Howard Chaykin’s Undead Again are why you don’t see many Blade comics out there: it’s AWFUL and shows that he’s just not that interesting a character. On paper he sounds good: a vampire hunter who’s also a vampire - but in practice, you get garbage like this.
Blade fights some vampire SHIELD agents, there’s some rubbish about Blade travelling back in time to save Doom’s mother, he fights a possessed mall Santa, more stakings, and he pointlessly tangles with Wolverine. It’s such unmemorable, meandering and boring drek! And Howard Chaykin’s art looks like shit, as always.
There’s probably a creative team out there who could make a great Blade book but it’s definitely not this one!
