BLOOD HUNT #2 by Jed MacKay, Pepe Larraz, Marte Gracia and Cory Petit (Marvel Entertainment)

Welcome to an all-new edition of Parlay Points!

For this entry, the Marvel Universe is in darkness. The sun is blacked out. Vampires are running loose. The Avengers are overwhelmed. The Bloodcoven have defeated Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Dr. Strange is taken off the board by a surprise assailant! Where do we head from here?

BLOOD HUNT #2 by Jed MacKay, Pepe Larraz, Marte Gracia and Cory Petit (Marvel Entertainment) leads the Marvel Universe heroes through these violent times.

Let’s take a closer look at how events play out now.


In the Impossible City, there is a sense of defeat. Thor and the Scarlet Witch are wounded. Black Panther is now a vampire. The Bloodcoven watch as their leader speaks with T’Challa. Readers watch as “the Lord of the Vampires” talks down to Wakanda’s King. The Lord in Question: BLADE, the Vampire Hunter!

With victory in hand, Blade sends the Bloodcoven after a new target. Readers quickly find out that it is Bloodline, daughter of Blade! She is fending off attacks on the innocent in New York City. It is revealed she was an unlikely ally at her side.

DRACULA (yes, THAT Dracula) is helping Bloodline. The pair is interrupted by the BloodCoven. It looks to become a very one sided fight. Elsewhere, Tigra and Hunter’s Moon are in search of one man who might be able to reverse all of this. However (even with the help of Miles Morales), it may be too little, too late. The astral form of Dr. Strange is still reeling from the attack from Blade. His human body? Another story.


Readers watch as the mood becomes darker. As Blade’s forces grow stronger, there appears to be some still wanting a fight. The action picks up as the Bloodcoven are challenged yet again. The outcome leads into a new avenue. Just when readers think they have an idea of the next phase, the closing image changes plans. Get ready for another wild chapter in Marvel’s bloodiest tale yet!

MacKay speeds up the pace to give fans a very heavy driven action chapter. The writing depicts Blade as over-confident as plans are moving. The pairing of Bloodline and Dracula provide a unique dynamic as the Bloodcoven arrives. From here, the action takes events up a few notches. Nothing is held back as the battle rages onward. The fallout leads into a natural direction. However, the closing moment is a genuine shock as readers will be guessing on what happens next.

Larraz and Gracia construct amazing action panels throughout this issue. The Bloodcoven battle kicks off with a full page splash of their opponents. Vision gets a near full page moment as he springs into action. This concludes with an iconic image declaring the true winners of this round. The fallout provides a feeling of tension and uncertainty. It caps off with a shocking total page picture that speaks many words before this chapter bows out.


The eternal darkness of the Marvel Comics Universe grows with another strong chapter. MacKay delves heavy into the action with the writing. Larraz, Gracia and Petit provide some high level battle panels before leaving readers with a huge parting moment. The story continues to impress as the violent night rages on.
