    AIPT - Collier Jennings May 15, 2024

    Overall, Amazing Spider-Man: Blood Hunt #1 is a book that has a solid foundation, but needs more space to breathe. With the conflict set up, hopefully the rest of this series can stick the landing. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez May 15, 2024

    Amazing Spider-Man: Blood Hunt #1 delivers plenty of action, drama, great art, and mysterious developments that hint at one or more conspiracies at work supporting the vampire apocalypse. Unfortunately, several character appearances and plot points either happen off-panel or aren't explained at all, which makes the reading experience unsatisfying. Read Full Review

    The Amazing Spider-Man: Blood Hunt #1 is an affair that can only intrigue the most die-hard event readers or Spidey collectors, as it fails to deliver on the best qualities of either. Read Full Review

    This is a tie-in that I had a lot of hesitancy towards in ASM 49 due to what I feel is a lacking editorial standard. That continues here, because while I didn't mind this story, I have issues with it stemming almost exclusively from editorial mishaps. The biggest one being Peter's incoherent characterization. One of the strong points with ASM 49 was Peter's empathy for the vampires, and his being very conflicted on how to go about saving people while not hurting or killing the vampires, who are mostly innocents who'd just been turned. This issue just sort of throws that away. While the Lizard and Misty Knight brutalize and murder their vampiric enemies, Spidey says nothing. It isn't until the end of the book where Peter again starts to take more

    Not a bad read, but also a weird way to continue from ASM #49. As Psycamorean and Afre pointed out in their, respective, reviews, Peter's attitude towards the vampires is odd. In the aforementioned ASM #49, we saw an interesting development of Peter realizing that the vampires he's facing used to be normal humans, thus causing him to become more careful when fighting them. However, that seems to be largely ignored here. I don't know if that was a miscommunication between anyone, but it was just weird here. Aside from that, this was a solid story, but nothing all that special. It didn't help that I'm not the biggest fan of Ferreira's art. Hopefully things pick up a bit with the next issue.

    This was a very meh comic. As it's own, it's okay, writing is okay and art great. But as a continuation to ASM #49, this feels very off. Peter's attitude has gone 180, tone is much more sillier and continuation from previous issue is lacking. I don't really care about continuing Beyond storylines 2+ years later and this comic didn't give me any reason to be invested in those again.

    kind of strange on how morbius struggles with handcuffs, and how the tone is too goofy as well as bringing back the Beyond storyline.
