n San Francisco, a legion of undead warriors lies in wait for the order of their leader, Xarus, to attack Utopia. It is under the threat of impending annihilation that the X-Men turn to their unlikeliest ally, the recently resurrected Dracula. But one of their number, the powerful mutant Wolverine, has been claimed by a vampire bite and may prove to be Xarus’ ace in the hole.

    Gotta admit that I like the artwork. But with all this vampire crap going on … where’s Blade? Should he be extra busy?

      He’s on page 4. Changed his hair style.

      For Marvel’s to poster boy, Logan’s having a rough go. Turned into a vampire, sent to hell, hunted by your metrosexual kid with a bad haircut. Not the type of week I’d like to emulate.

        It’s easy to miss him if you’re not looking as they’ve revamped his look a bit. And, for what it’s worth, I’m not a fan of Blade’s handlebar truckdriver mustache.

          I’m sorry, but that mustache is BAD-ASS.

    Cover is cool… concept would have been cool… 10 years ago…

    Now it just seems me too.

    Twilight and True Blood… etc.

    Vampires… marvel… me too.

    I’ll get some of it, because I’ve been getting X-men for a long time…

    Blades look… kinda cool… but yeah… kinda truck-driver mustache.

    Awesome cover… though.

    I wish they’d have polled the mass comic reader or even just the average comic reader on the street before they started this Vampire thing. Not that I don’t like a good vampire tale as much as the next guy, but the way Marvel tends to handle things like this is to drive it into the ground and then keep driving until all the blood’s been drawn from the stone. They did it with Marvel Zombies, and that is why I voted for Marvel Zombies in the poll a little while ago over Vampires, not because I want to see more zombie titles. I just feel that the zombie thing is almost over and I’m dreading what may come from this vampire masquerade. I wonder if others voted for zombies for the same reason, the evil you know is better than the evil you don’t, I guess.
