Brielle is Bloodline, The New Daughter Of Blade The Vampire Hunter

This is a comic book seven years in the making, with numerous false starts, concepts and creative teams. At San Diego Comic-Con in 2015, Bleeding Cool first reported on a new Blade comic book from Marvel Comics by Tim Seeley and Logan Faerber. We got more details, that this would be Fallon Grey from rural Oregon, facing a threat she doesn't understand and meeting her father Eric Brooks, the classic vampire hunting day-walking Blade.

Fallon Grey is a sixteen-year-old girl from rural Oregon. Nominated for Prom Queen, Captain of the debate team, most popular girl in her class. But there is another side to Fallon. A feeling like there's something more inside of her. When terror strikes her small town, she'll find out just how right she was. As fearsome supernatural forces hunt Fallon, she'll come face to face with something even more shocking than the monsters on her tail. Eric Brooks…Blade…her father?! And in each other, they'll discover the purpose they've each been struggling to find

It was meant to have been published in the autumn of 2015. Well… it wasn't,  it was pulled off the schedule.  Bleeding Cool suggested that the delay may play into whatever was being planned for a new Blade movie or TV show. also starring that character. Lots more people followed that one up. That the comic would have to fit in with these plans – or at least, not contradict them too much.

But it never happened, though Logan Faerber did post a few designs from the series.

At one point, it was announced in 2016 at C2E that Afua Richardson would be drawing the comic instead. And at a previous juncture at NYCC she had said that, of an unnamed project,

"I get a call from Axel Alonso, come in, rip the script apart, create the designs you want…."

And then posted…

But that never happened either. And now? In 2022? A new creative team, a new title, we have Bloodline: Daughter Of Blade.
