    Blood Hunt #1 is a promising start, successfully setting the stakes and delivering a healthy dose of action and horror revealing the mastermind by the time we reach the cliffhanger. While the focus is on spectacle, MacKay manages to plant seeds for interesting character development making Blood Hunt #1 a wildly exciting Summer event. Read Full Review

    Jed MacKay and Pepe Larraz launch 2024s big Avengers event, and theyre pulling out all of the stops. MacKays using a bunch of his subplots that hes been sprinkling over his various projects, while Larraz shows why hes one of the best in the business. Ive been a big fan of both of their work, so theres big expectations coming their way. Read Full Review

    Nerd Initiative - Ken M. May 1, 2024

    Marvels big crossover leaps heavy into violence and mystery with its debut chapter. MacKay guess readers on edge with fantastic storytelling. The art by Larraz, Garcia and Petit brings a distinct horror feel to the Marvel Universe. Brace yourself for some big events. This wont be for the tame of heart as time goes on. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Collier Jennings May 1, 2024

    If there's one fault with Blood Hunt #1, it's a last page twist that doesn't sit right with me mainly because of the character it concerns. Admittedly, I'm a fan of said character so that might be coloring it, but hopefully the creative team has a method behind this madness. Ultimately, Blood Hunt #1 kicks off a horror-tinged crossover event that will give True Believers a reason to be scared of the dark. Read Full Review

    Capes & Tights - Justin Soderberg May 2, 2024

    Those holding off on crossover events over the past few years should give Blood Hunt a go. The storyline is setting up to be brutal, the artwork is fantastic and we're sure more twists are waiting around the corner. Sink your teeth into (we did it again) this crossover event with Blood Hunt #1. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Connor Casey May 1, 2024

    After only one issue, it's hard to say where Blood Hunt will land within the pantheon of superhero event comics. DC took its shot at "superheroes versus vampires" just a couple of years ago to mixed results and Marvel events have been hit or miss in recent years. But it's been quite a while since I've seen one start on such a high note and it'll have me hooked reading through the summer. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Spot - Theodis Wright May 3, 2024

    Blood Hunt #1 could have been great. But instead, it's only decent. I wish MacKay had made the issue less predictable so that the reveal at the end was more of a shock. The art saves its good rating. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 4, 2024

    Unexpected turns, a heaping helping of blood and gore, and a final page cliffhanger that runs headlong into the question of what Death In Comics actually means, but mostly pulls off the win. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez May 1, 2024

    Blood Hunt #1 kicks off Marvel'smajorevent for 2024 with high stakes,bigaction, and a decisive sneak attack that creates a seemingly impossible challenge for the heroes. That said, the almost total lack of setup is weird. Clues that have supposedlybeen plantedin other titles meant nothing, and the big bad is an out-of-the-blue surprise that makes little sense given the Master's recent activities. Blood Hunt looksgreatand feels big, but the sloppiness in details and setup results in a mixed bag. Read Full Review
