    Overall, Blade: Vampire Nation is a different take on the vampire genre, as it feels like Robert Harris Fatherland, but with bloodsuckers. The story by Russell is pure crime noir. The art by the creative team is gorgeous. Altogether, a story that readers will enjoy for its many nods to some cultural touchpoints.

    All in all, Blade: Vampire Nation #1 is a better-than-average story that works more often than not, and even if I saw a twist or two coming, they were twists that left Blade, Dracula, and the denizens of vampire country in a more interesting place, earning 3 out of 5 stars overall. Perhaps the best part of it all is the strained-but-almost-friendly interactions between the odd couple of Blade and Dracula, who are clearly destined to kill one another but are clearly forced to coexist, hammering home the noir aspects of it all.
