Icons of the American Comic Book

I have an entry in this book, Icons of the American Comic Book from Captain America to Wonder Woman (published by ABC-CLIO in March) about the history of the Blade character, the development of the films, and their legacy. Blade was one of the first reoccurring African-American lead characters in comics and the success of the Blade trilogy starring Wesley Snipes kicked off the modern era of Marvel superhero films.

The book includes over 60 entries by a stellar line up of comics scholars, and I was honored to be included. Thanks to Randy Duncan & Matthew Smith for inviting me.
