'Blood Hunt' Connecting Cover Holds the Line Against the Vampire Armies

Get your first look at Gabriele Dell'Otto's epic 'Blood Hunt' connecting cover.

This May, eternal darkness washes over the Marvel Universe in Jed MacKay and Pepe Larraz’s BLOOD HUNT.

The upcoming event kicks off when various vampire factions, united for the first time in millennia, engineer a global attack using Darkforce energy to block out the sun. Having lurked in the shadows of the Marvel Universe since its very beginning, vampires are now unleashed on humanity as heroes and villains alike fall prey to their overwhelming bloodlust. Who will bite it?

The blood-soaked battles that await in BLOOD HUNT will be unlike any seen before in Marvel Comics history. Today, fans can glimpse a fight between the Avengers and the Bloodcoven, a new group of vampire villains that will make their chilling debut in BLOOD HUNT #1, on acclaimed artist Gabriele Dell’Otto’s connecting cover. The breathtaking piece will adorn all five issues of the main series and also be available as virgin covers. 

"I knew going in that vampires weren't bad enough. If the children of the night were going up against the Avengers, let alone the other heroes of the world, bigger guns were required," MacKay explained. "Hence the Bloodcoven—supervampires, fed on the blood of superhumans that follow different vampiric philosophies, subsisting not only on blood but pain, or magic, or thoughts, or even ghosts! I threw together a list of names and some thoughts about powers, but it was Pepe who really brought these characters to (un)life, creating an extremely gnarly set of predators!"
