BLOOD HUNT #3 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 surrounded by darkness. A shocking reveal is leading the evil charge. Last readers saw, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes went on the offensive. With a much needed win, some would think the tide was turning. Sadly, another hero has succumb to the terror dominating the MCU.

BLOOD HUNT #3 by Jed MacKay, Pepe Larraz, Marte Gracia and Cory Petit (Marvel Entertainment) blazes a trail to find the light in the endless night.

Let’s take a closer look at how things play out!


In the Impossible City, Blade has ascended. The former hero is the new lord of all vampires.He is having a conversation with a fallen hero. Black Panther is now a vampire under Blade’s rule. T’Challa has vastly changed. Giving his instructions, Blade’s conversation is over with him.

A voice speaks from the distance with an observation. Scarlet Witch lets the new lord know he has taken a loss. Wanda informs him more is coming via The Avengers.

Meanwhile on Earth, Miles Morales has transformed into a vampire. Dr. Strange intervenes and hits Miles with an attack. The blow knocks him back to his senses. Miles starts telling the Avengers, Dracula and Bloodline what he was forced to do.

In this mix, a truth is revealed that Bloodline cannot process. She has been recruited by Dracula for a sole purpose. Bloodline is the only one who can stop Blade…by killing him?!

Readers watch as the weight becomes too heavy for the young hunter. What transpires next sets forth a new path. As the darkness grows, one Avenger becomes the source of light needed to combat. Judging by the final image, is it all too late?

MacKay gives readers a break point sorley needed for the heroes. Since the beginning, Blade’s been cold and ruthless with each action. Bloodline’s reaction to events is a great counter to her father’s new persona. The writing hits the point of uncertainty and doubt about what she is being tasked to complete. It is a big moment, but another steals this issue.

An Avenger steps right into the spotlight with a speech that echoes any classic Hollywood movie. The words capture the fear and taxing pressure surrounding this fight. It leaves readers in a sense of rebellion. MacKay drops a solid counter with the final pages. The counter punch of Blade connects as this story feels far from over.

Larraz and Gracia convey the strength of the heroes in multiple areas. Scarlet Witch’s response to Blade is defiant. Readers will see her anger behind the impactful words. The moment of clarity with Bloodline is gifted a full page montage of Blade and the current state of affairs.

The Avenger spotlight starts with a near full page image. It is fitting considering what follows next. With anger and determination behind the expressions, readers can’t help but begin to think there’s a chance to win. The closing image is a full page introduction that closes events with a loud statement. There is much for readers to rave about with the art.


An Avenger takes the spotlight by force with a turning point felt around the MCU. MacKay pens a balanced issue while the latter half elevates the chapter. Larraz, Gracia and Petit constrict the highly emotional reactions to Marvel’s bloody event with ease. The saga leaves with another big moment to exemplify why this is no ordinary story. It’s an event for a reason.
