Who Will Bite It In Marvel's Blood Hunt Crossover Event


JayC

Recommended Posts

Each year at New York Comic Con, the Marvel: Next Big Thing Panel delivers the most industry-shaking announcements of the weekend. Today was no exception with the reveal of Marvel’s next major crossover event—BLOOD HUNT!

Vampires have always walked amongst the shadows of the Marvel Universe, but in Spring 2024, the long night arrives and these bloodsucking terrors will endure the spotlight like never before. The main event series will be brought to life by an A-team of Marvel talent: current Avengers scribe Jed MacKay and acclaimed X-Men artists Pepe Larraz and Marte Gracia. In classic Marvel fashion, BLOOD HUNT will also spill out into a host of tie-in issues in Marvel’s hottest current series and see the launch of all-new limited series, one-shots, and redefining status quos.

Brimming with unsurmountable stakes, this startling saga will drag the world into darkness as your favorite heroes struggle to ward off the vampire race’s cursed crusade of terror! Fans will have to wait with bated breath for more story details and information. In the meantime, sink your teeth into a special BLOOD HUNT trailer and a viciously visceral promotional image by Leinil Francis Yu and Sunny Gho!

"We have vampires in our books all the time, there's some bad blood there," MacKay said. "What happens if the shoe was on the other foot? We've got the Avengers, Moon Knight's Midnight Mission, Doctor Strange, Miles Morales, and of course, Blade, and there's going to be more vampires you can shake a stick at."

Stay tuned for a feast of exciting BLOOD HUNT announcements in the months ahead!

Jed MacKay and Pepe Larraz? I can't say that the premise feels like it can hold a candle to other classic Marvel events, but that's a killer creator combo so at least it's gonna be a fun story.

The way Iron Man looks like in that promo really piqued my interest. He's due a new mainstay armor, especially now that he's making do with an emergency stealth suit... So is the armor he's wearing in this teaser just an inconsequential anti-vampire armor... or an unintentional first look at the new mainstay armor?

Announced in October at New York Comic Con, Marvel’s next crossover event, BLOOD HUNT, launches this May. Written by current Avengers and Moon Knight scribe Jed MacKay and drawn by superstar X-Men artist Pepe Larraz, the monumental story begs the question, “WHO WILL BITE IT?” as vampires emerge from the shadows like never before.

Across the main limited series, tie-in issues, and spinoff limited series, readers will experience their favorite heroes fall helpless to the dark ways of the creatures of the night and bravely overcome their tempting ways. United with a single vision for the first time in millennia, the overwhelming army of bloodsucking terrors will transform the world in their image by turning the lights off across the Marvel Universe. In order to turn them back on, a new world order may need to be put in place…

Today, fans can check out the first issue cover along with a glimpse at the Avengers’ opening battle with the vampire nation’s forces. Plus, get new insights into the event in an exclusive interview with Jed MacKay!

The skies have gone dark, the sun hiding its face from the carnage to come. The children of the night, the vampires, have risen from the dark and hidden places of the world as one to drown the Marvel Universe in blood. Earth’s final night has fallen – can even the heroes of this doomed world stem the tide of blood that is to come? Join the Avengers, Blade, Bloodline, Spider-Man, Hunter’s Moon, Tigra, Doctor Strange and Clea as the dance of death begins.

“I think vampires are a very fun part of the Marvel Universe,” MacKay told Marvel.com. “You can enjoy them on a surface level as adding a little spookiness to a book, or you can get as deep as you like into the long-running Marvel history of vampires, which is as elaborate as any other part of it (and the fact that Dracula is there is a source of endless delight)! BLOOD HUNT is just the latest chapter in the long-running vampire mythos of Marvel vampires—and they're stepping out of the darkness in a big way.”

“Much like Civil War and Secret Invasion, BLOOD HUNT is a story that has been naturally building across Marvel's comics over the last few years (and some even older stories), and it all comes to a head this May as Jed connects all the dots,” Editor in Chief C.B. Cebulski said. “As the series unfolds, readers will be able to uncover clues and go back and put the pieces together to see just how high the stakes are for our beloved characters. Pun intended.”

Visit Marvel.com to hear more from MacKay and stay tuned in the weeks ahead for more BLOOD HUNT announcements, including tie-in reveals and information on how this blood-soaked event will stand apart from any other in Marvel Comics history! In the meantime, check out all-new artwork and inquire with your local comic shop regarding preorders today!

"This May, Marvel asks the bold question, 'Who Will Bite It?' in their next spectacular crossover extravaganza!  Will it be Spider-man?  Blade?  Dr. Strange?  Hunter's Moo- there's... there's a guy named 'Hunter's Moon'?  And we're making a vampire pun to frame the question of which character is going to die?  And how long has he been around fo- two years?  And he's an important character in... the Moon Knight franchise.  So... I guess, Hunter's Moon then?  Hunter's Moon.  We're all agreed?  Ok, good meeting everybody.  This May, Marvel asks the bold question, 'How Will Hunter's Moon Bite It?'  And 'Will We Throw Tigra in There As Well?'  You'll have to buy them all to find out, True Believer!"

The vampires of the Marvel Universe have waited patiently, and now that the eternal night has cursed Earth, they’ll feast like never before in Jed MacKay and Pepe Larraz’s BLOOD HUNT. This bloodbath of terror couldn’t come at a more dire time for mutantkind. Currently scattered after the fall of Krakoa, the X-Men won’t be able to strike from a united front. Instead, four X-Men icons will risk their souls in breathtaking solo adventures.

Across four X-MEN: BLOOD HUNT one-shots, see some of mutantkind’s most experienced and formidable heroes fight back against the ruthless vampire hordes: former vampire Jubilee; mystical expert Magik; ninja warrior Psylocke; and lethal former assassin, Laura Kinney the Wolverine. These standalone stories will deliver thrilling exploits that provide new insights into the vampire’s global reign, while also exploring the current circumstances these four mutant A-Listers find themselves in the wake of the Fall of the House of X.

Blurggg.. Jake Gomez... sigh.. I guess Jack Russell is cured? You'd think the MCU one shot would have shot him back into the starring role again...

Well at the very least.. glad Taboo isn't writing this so there won't be cyborg zombies, Mechs  and wizards. I couldn't even finish the first issue of THAT terrible series
