    Bloodline: Daughter of Blade #1 is a fun debut with some youthful energy and story decisions that makes it stand out. Instead of going the familiar route, it changes things up keeping readers on their toes. Blade and the Vampire Nation have been getting more of a focus lately and here's to hoping this series continues the solid storytelling they've been delivering so far. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura Feb 1, 2023

    A big asset working in Bloodline #1's favor is that it doesn't require an encyclopedic knowledge of Blade to be understood; she knows slightly less about her origins than the reader does, and we're both discovering the extent of her nature in real time with one another. I'm not especially familiar with Blade stories myself, but I know his whole deal as a general character; that's more than enough. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 1, 2023

    Bloodline: Daughter of Blade #1 introduces a compelling situation for Bloodline as a vampire hunter and as a person whose still figuring out her half-vampire nature. A slower-paced issue, to be sure. There are a lot of elements that could spell intriguing drama surrounding vampire hunters and Blade being an absentee father. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Feb 1, 2023

    Bloodline: Daughter of Blade #1 is a slightly above average kickoff to the series. Brielle Brooks just seems to perfect to be interesting, but when the supernatural creatures and vampires appear, those scenes have the feel of an old Universal Horror film. Hopefully next issue will expand on the two good cliffhangers at the end of the book. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Feb 2, 2023

    Bloodline: Daughter of Blade #1 is wholly uninspired, cheap, amateurish, and worst of all, boring. If you've been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Blade's daughter for a new generation of adventures, you will be sorely disappointed. Read Full Review
