save a village from a vampire takeover? All that, and the ultimate sacrifice round out the TOMB OF DRACULA limited series from Rob Rodi and Jamie Tolagson!
BLADE (2006) #1
If you thought you had it rough in elementary school, just be grateful you didn't have blood-sucking fourth graders to contend with!
