    the first few pages and never even speaks along with a major role for SHIELD and next issue has the delightful prospect of Blade going to Latveria to kick Doctor Doom s face in Awesome Union Jack teams another up and coming writer with a TV background with a rock solid artist but with less successful results Writer Christos N Gage bumps off the vampires in the first few pages before taking Jack in a more topical espionage based direction While having Union Jack fight vampires was always a woefully unimaginative direction for a British based hero old country supernatural menaces replacing them with a supervillain terrorist plot isn t exactly interesting or distinctive The art by Mike Perkins latterly of Ed Brubaker s run on Captain America is very impressive and handles the locations well but only adds to the feeling of reading an inferior re run of the recent Cap story 21st Century Blitz in which Cap and Jack teamed up to deal with a similar plot in London Its topical elements a superhero team with members from both sides of the Middle East conflict are never as crass as one would worry they might be but neither are they particularly well executed Brit Perkins apparently advised US writer Gage on the dialogue and the book doesn t feel like it s set in a Hollywood backlot version of the UK but neither does it have any local colour that the recent Captain America story didn t do just as well While Blade is an ongoing that packs a whole arc s worth of story into its first issue Union Jack is a four issue mini series which already feels over stretched While Blade feels like it could be a runaway hit that re establishes its lead as a big player like the Huston Finch Moon Knight Union Jack has the feel of another ill feted Marvel mini series doomed to a substantial sales drop off across its four issues This is a bit unkind really as Blade isn t a brilliant book by any means and Union Jack is far from being an actively bad one However the former is well conceived well executed and generally fun while the latter is clunky and a bit uninspired In a highly competitive marketplace where new titles especially those featuring less than stellar characters fail all the time that difference could mean everything Line Break By Mark Clapham Mark Clapham is a Devon based writer and editor You can find out more about him at the egotistically named markclapham com Share Vampire Hunters D list Tags Blade Comics Dracula Howard Chaykin Marc Guggenheim Marvel Vampires Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big Bang survival kit Print s Not Dead

    and Whistler respectively are as relentlessly macho and serious as we ve come to expect which is all to the good but new additions to the ensemble bring different tones to the movie Of the main co stars Jessica Biel is efficient and attractive as the high kicking Abby but it s Ryan Reynolds as deadpan self effacingly humorous ex vampire Hannibal King who gets all the best lines while being a sufficiently robust action hero to avoid any accusations of being a comedy sidekick The rumoured prospect of Reynolds and Goyer re teaming for DC s The Flash is something to get really really excited about The rest of the cast is equally excellent with indie comedy actors John Michael Higgins Parker Posey and Natasha Lyonne all providing a little more depth and character to what could easily be stock roles Elsewhere Goyer has recruited talent from as diverse places as TV Dominic Purcell and Callum Keith Rennie and wrestling Triple H for his other characters Purcell doesn t have quite as much to do as he did in the quickly cancelled John Doe but nonetheless brings a surprising amount of depth and sympathy to a character who is in plot terms pure unadulterated evil He remains a star to watch Don t believe what you may have heard there s no third instalment collapse here Blade Trinity rounds off the series well retaining its predecessors many fine qualities while adding a few twists of its own Firm direction an entertaining script and classy performances produce an action that delivers exactly what you d want from this kind of movie Line Break By Mark Clapham Mark Clapham is a Devon based writer and editor You can find out more about him at the egotistically named markclapham com Share Blade Trinity Tags Blade David Goyer Dracula Marvel Movies Parker Posey Vampires Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big Bang survival kit Print s Not Dead World of Fancraft The Shiny Shelf Alternative Xmas Gift Guide Fringe 2 16 Peter Ashes to Ashes Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise Fifth Geoff Johns George Lucas Grant Morrison Horror ITV JJ Abrams Joss Whedon London Film Festival Marvel Movies Russell T Davies Spider Man Star Trek Star Wars Superman The X Files TV Vampires X Men Zombies Comics Read Younger Looking Flesh our first webcomic Tags Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary
