  • 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.

What they’re saying:

  • Writer Jed MacKay: "We have vampires in our books all the time. There's some bad blood there. What happens if the shoe was on the 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."
