Standard packaging variant includes a Blade-themed poster book instead of a comic.
Half vampire, half human, the tortured soul known only as Blade came into the world an orphan. His mother, bitten by the vampire Deacon Frost while she was pregnant, died during childbirth. Due to the circumstances of his birth, Blade's body has undergone certain genetic mutations. He possesses a vampire's superhuman strength and accelerated healing factor. Fueled by a constant craving for vengeance against the creatures that tainted his humanity and murdered his mother, Blade fashioned himself into a vampire hunter.
