You know Blade, right? He's the Daywalker, a vampire hunter with some vampiric abilities of his own. Grew up in a brothel. Hunted Dracula. Hung out with Dr. Strange a lot. Well, rethink all that, because Marvel has announced a new series at San Diego Comic-Con from writer Tim Seeley and artist Logan Faerber, which presents Eric Brooks in a whole new way: through his daughter.

That's right, Blade has a daughter, and she'll be a big part of the focus of the new series, as she and her dad will apparently go on some macabre adventures together.

Here's Marvel's solicitation for the first issue, which comes out in October, just in time for Halloween:

 

Fallon Grey is a sixteen year old girl from rural Oregon. Nominated for Prom Queen, Captain of the debate team, most popular girl in her class. But there is another side to Fallon. A feeling like there’s something more inside of her. When terror strikes her small town, she’ll find out just how right she was. As fearsome supernatural forces hunt Fallon, she’ll come face to face with something even more shocking than the monsters on her tail. Eric Brooks…Blade…her father?! And in each other, they’ll discover the purpose they’ve each been struggling to find.

 

Of course, the big, lingering question is just how Fallon ended up in Oregon while Eric Brooks has been bopping around to various cities hunting vampires. There are a few others, too: Will she become a Blade herself? What exactly are these monsters that show up in her town? (Seems like they'd be vampires, but the solicitation is intentionally vague about it.

We'll all find out this fall, but check back during the week for our interview with Tim Seeley about the new Blade.
