Characters Appearing: Bible John, Blade, Crossbow (alt. Blade), Julia Suarez, Marie Laveau, Mariella Suarez
Issue(s): Blade #9
This issue, though, features the very Terry Kavanagh-ish villains called the Vampz, best enjoyed via the cover or this panel where Blade calls them Vampires and they feel the need to correct him. Branding is important.
The Vampz are working for Marie Laveau (who is apparently a cyborg now?).
Blade has just rescued Bible John (thanks to some intel from Morbius), who is dying but is trying to tell Blade that Hannibal King and Frank Drake are still alive. Blade - in a move that i consider to be very out of character! - considers trying to force one of the Vampz to turn John into a vampire to keep him from dying, but then he realizes that the Vamp (Vamp = singular for Vampz?) is only pretending to be his prisoner so that it can spy on him for Laveau, and that causes him to come to his senses; he kills the Vamp. Then cyborg Blade shows up.
I have not (and probably will not!) read next issue, but looking online this guy is literally Cable-Blade - an alternate future version of Blade - and that suuuuuuuuuuuucks, Terry Kavanagh!
