Nightstalkers - "Midnight Massacre Part One: Blood in the Water"

Blade is determined to get to the Darkhold page that will enable him to destroy everything supernatural. He attacks Samantha Regent and demands to know where the letter is but she won't tell him. Finally he begs Samantha to tell him where it is. She then tells him that Maxxy has it.

Hannibal, Frank and John Blaze know what Blade is trying to do and attempt to stop him. They reach him and 'Linda' destroys the letter but not before Blade has read the page. He accepts the Other's offer of the opportunity to revenge himself against everything unnatural. He is then turned into Switchblade, a being capable of absorbing the magical abilities of everyone that he destroys. He kills Hannibal King and John Blaze and sets off to kill everyone else that is magical. Ghost Rider shows up and vows vengeance for the death of John Blaze.

The story continues in 'Ghost Rider' No. 40 (Marvel, 1993).

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
