ALL WILL BOW TO THE LORD OF VAMPIRES!

Blade is Dracula’s ultimate nemesis: the most formidable vampire hunter in the world. Blade is Brielle Brooks’ father: the man who’s training her to follow in his footsteps. But during the Blood Hunt, when day is night and all is not as it appears, these enemies may find their interests – however briefly – aligned…for the fate of humanity?!

In an interview with ComicBook.com, Dracula: Blood Hunt writer Danny Lore shed light on the event’s surprising team up between the Lord of Vampires and the Daughter of Blade.

Hawkeye is on the run – but does he have enough trick arrows in his quiver to avoid both the long arm of the law AND vampires out for his blood?! Man-Wolf and J. Jonah Jameson do a little father-son bonding – while also fighting for their lives against a horde of bloodsuckers! And, in a continuing story, with Cloak missing in action, Dagger strikes out in search of new and surprising allies. Witness the genesis of Marvel’s wildest team yet: the Blood Hunters.

At Newsarama, writer Erica Schultz detailed the formation and members of the new team of vampire slayers debuting in the BLOOD HUNTERS anthology series.

The vampire onslaught of Blood Hunt knows no bounds, reaching all the way down to New Orleans, Louisiana, home of the Strange Academy! Doyle Dormammu, Zoe Laveau, Shaylee Moonpeddle, Germán Aguilar, and Toth get embroiled in an adventure that will take them around the Marvel Universe and right into the center of the Blood Hunt action! Their mission: find the ancient Darkhold and cast the spell that will destroy all vampires. There’s just one problem… Agatha Harkness boldly transformed the Darkhold into a child in last year’s Contest of Chaos!
