It really is a shame that a movie made about a little known character in the marvel universe does extremely well and has two sequels made that did well and kicked off the whole marvel movie madness hasn't gotten any love in the comics at all.  Blade is a great character however marvel really doesn't know what the hell to do with him in comics which is pathetic considering how well the movies did and when people talk about bad ass vampire killers van helsing or buffy aren't the characters people think of first they think of blade.  So to answer the question movie Blade is a hell of a lot better than comic book blade since the people who made those films knew what they were doing were as marvel seems absolutely clueless.

First Blade movie was great. The second was average. The third was horrible.

The movies are definitely better. I can't even remember a good Blade comic.

I like Both the Comics and Movies equally.

After seeing the Blade movies i was going to purchase their comics just a bit ago.
Then i saw on one of the covers that they made one of Blades hands into a gun...and put the comics down and never looked back

one comic cover made you judge an entire series?

The series was cancelled cause the art really put a lot of people off, plus Marvel didn't really build the series up, they kind of just threw it out there.

hahaha no one mentions that balde had to be retconed after the movies because the moveis improved his power set blade was trash before the movies just a guest spot in tomb of dracula and the midnight sons he got his no one has gotten movie blade right on paper thats why he aint doin so good.Blade just need a real penciler inker and writer to give it a good go.The 12 issue run didnt have the worst art i have seen but i wasnt great the writting was decent atleast up to issue 8 that all my brother has.but blade blew up cuz the movie not the other way around and i think thats why his movies did so good no one knew what to expect they didnt have source materials to look at so it was just a badass vamp flick but blade and other are over due they need thier time to shine

Blade wasn't bad appearing in Captain Britain and MI13, but that comic was cancelled. The problem with Blade on paper is that it's boring. Sure, he kills vampires; and that works in a 2 hour movie. But the same thing, 24-pages a month, month in and month out?
