  • 1st appearance of Elsa Bloodstone, daughter and successor of the famous monster hunter, Ulysses Bloodstone
  • [March 2021 - a character named Ruby is reportedly being cast for Blade. Elsa Bloodstone would make a lot of sense to add a strong female character to the upcoming lineup of Moon Knight, Blade and other Marvel male-dominated monster characters]
  • 1st appearance of Nosferatu in the Marvel Universe
  • 💬 Bry's Outlook: this book represents a strong, solid spec and the value is dependent on that coming to fruition. Investing in this issue now as it is breaking new high records is a roll of the dice that could yield big returns

  • 9.8 sold for $900 [$795 last week] +13%
  • 9.6 sold for $395 [$325 in Sept] +22%
  • This time last year, ungraded copies in Near Mint condition were selling for $100. Currently, ungraded copies of Bloodstone #1 in high grade consistently sell for $250+ based on speculation that the character is well-suited for the MCU
  • There isn’t much to indicate her introduction to movies or TV other than a rumor that a character named Ruby is being cast for an unknown project
  • Although Elsa’s hair was blonde during the first few years of existence, it changed to red in the comic Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E. #1 which is the reasoning behind the speculation that Ruby could be a codename for Elsa
  • With Blade being a confirmed MCU project, it could be assumed that Marvel Studios is getting ready to unlock the door to other genres of storytelling like horror which is further encouraged by speculation on Midnight Sons, Werewolf By Night and Ghost Rider
  • Lately, Elsa Bloodstone has been utilized more in comics than in previous years, appearing in the 2019 Deadpool series and having an upcoming solo one-shot connected to the Death of Doctor Strange event
  • Her brother, Cullen Bloodstone is also appearing more often and his first appearance in Avengers Arena #1 has been trending high for the past two weeks
  • Copies of Marvel Presents #1 (1975) that introduced the patriarch of the Bloodstone family, Ulysses could be picked up for pretty cheap at the moment and could be a sleeper if the Bloodstone family is introduced to live action
