First Appearance: Darkhold: Pages from the Book of Sins#8 (May, 1993)



(Darkhold: Pages from the Book of Sins#8) - Samantha was angry at her parents because they had spent her fortune to investigate the occult. When she saw something falling from the sky she went to the lake in Boston's Public Gardens and found a letter addressed to her, which she picked up. She thought she had only imagined the Dwarf's face underwater.....but she didn't actually.

(Nightstalkers#8 (fb) - BTS) - Samantha told Richard about the letter she had received and how its content, a page from the Darkhold, could supposedly wipe out all the occult.

(Nightstalkers#8) - Samantha met with her brother at the Regent Residence and told him that she considered using the page to get everything back because their parents had wasted much of their money on "crystal balls and astrology charts".

(Nightstalkers#9) - Still mulling over whether or not she should use the Demogorge page, Samantha Regent went out to a nightclub. She attracted the attention of a man called Maxxy. After Sam left the club Maxxy followed and attacked her, leading to Sam being hit by a car. Maxxy took the envelope.

(Nightstalkers#10) - Blade found Samantha Regent recovering from her wounds at Massachusetts General hospital. Reluctantly she cooperated, telling him about Maxxy having taken the envelope. Blade retrieved the letter and escaped Frank Drake, Hannibal King and John Blaze, who had learned of his plan. Blade summoned the Other, was transformed into the Demogorge, and adopted the name Switchblade.
