EXCLUSIVE: “Bloodlines: Hostile Takeover” #2 Solicits, Character Sketches

by  in Comic News Comment

If you’re hoping to see writer J.T. Krul‘s spin on superheroes in his latest DC Comics project, you might be a little surprised to find out, that’s not where he’s taking the story. “It’s really not a superhero book at all,” Krul says of “Bloodlines: Hostile Takeover.” “It’s more like a Stephen King novel.”

DC has provided CBR with the exclusive first look at the cover and solicits for May’s “Bloodlines” #2, along with a glimpse at artist V. Ken Marion’s sketchbook for the series.

“Some of them are very literal re-imaginings with the same types of powers, and some of them are variations,” Krul explained to CBR News of the Bloodline cast’s new incarnation. “We’re not going to see all of the ‘Bloodline’ characters — and again, this isn’t a matter of, this is awesome. This is terrifying. We’re reimagining the original ‘Bloodlines’ event. We have some of the classic characters, and we also have some new characters.”

BLOODLINES continues! Eddie and the rest of the town struggle to cope with the tragic loss of one of their own, but something else is plaguing Eddie.

What exactly happened to him in the forest-and what does it mean? He’s not the only one dealing with the fallout from the bizarre alien infestation, either. Others are starting to discover some strange and haunting abilities that seem more like curses.

And there’s one who’s all too eager to embrace these newfound powers, with horrific results.
