A few days ago, we shared with you a clip from ‘Wolverine Anime’, which is part of a collaboration between Marvel and Madhouse that set out to retell the stories of some of the House of Ideas’ most popular heroes, like Iron Man and the X-Men. Hitting shelves tomorrow along with ‘Wolverine Anime’ is ‘Blade Amine’, which explores the vampire culture of Asia and the Daywalker that approaches to kick it’s butt.
Courtesy of Comic Book Movie, we can take a look at an exclusive clip from the ‘Blade Anime’ DVD that spotlights the differing vampire mythologies of Southeast Asia that Blade deals with in the series. Writer Warren Ellis seems especially enthusiastic about all the different vampires that he got to play with while creating the story for Blade’s adventures in Asia. Check out the clip below, followed by a synopsis for ‘Blade Anime’:
Eric Brooks – known as Blade – seeks revenge on Deacon Frost, the vampire who killed his mother while she was still pregnant with him. With all the powers of a vampire and none of their weaknesses, Blade’s quest leads him throughout Southeast Asia in search of Frost. In the Golden Triangle, he discovers a vampire plot that threatens to take down the whole world.
‘Blade Anime’ goes on sale tomorrow, July 31st.
