I don’t think that anyone could’ve seen this coming but Blaxploitation’s dark prince, Blacula is set to return to the night in a brand new graphic novel by scripted by Rodney Barnes and drawn by Jason Shawn Alexander titled Blacula: Return of The King. Known for a his Hollywood films, “Blacula” and “Scream, Blacula, Scream”, the character receives a revitalization which will surely be exciting to old fans and a character that will surely be on the list of new ones especially in the horror department.
“Los Angeles—the City of Angels. Two souls, one is looking for vengeance and one is looking for the truth. They share one thing in common, they are both searching for the legendary vampire Blacula. Tina Thomas is a reporter for the blog Dark Knights, which chronicles all things unnatural, uneasy, and undead. She meets a young man named Kross whose family was forever changed by the vampire. Kross asks Tina to help him kill Blacula. Blacula too is on a mission, he is searching for the one who forever changed his life centuries ago. His name is Count Dracula.”
