LOGAN FIGHTS BACK THE DARKNESS! WOLVERINE’s the best there is at what he does — and today, fighting vampires is going to have to top that list! Don’t miss the MARVEL DEBUT of scintillating scribe Tom Waltz (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Last Ronin) as he teams up with daring artistic dynamo Juan José Ryp (WOLVERINE, VENGEANCE OF THE MOON KNIGHT) for a bloody good time! As the sky darkens across the globe and vampires reign, what hidden plot puts LOGAN directly in their crosshairs? Hint: It’s like nothing you’ve seen in BLOOD HUNT yet! Be here as the plot (and blood!) thickens when a secret vampire sect enacts a startling strategy that’ll take Logan — and the world — to the brink! Guest-starring some SURPRISE characters from Wolverine’s past!

Marvel Comics’ “Wolverine: Blood Hunt #1” leaps off the page with a ferocity that matches its clawed protagonist. Illustrated by the talented Juan José Ryp, whose dynamic lines and intense detail capture the essence of action, this issue is a bloody feast for fans of the genre. The cover art by Ben Harvey sets the tone perfectly, promising a story that’s as dark and intriguing as it is visually stunning.

Tom Waltz steps into the writer’s shoes for Marvel Comics, bringing a fresh voice to the Wolverine saga. His narrative is a thrilling ride that doesn’t shy away from the grit and violence synonymous with the character. Waltz’s storytelling is gripping, ensuring that readers are hooked from the first panel to the last. It’s a narrative that’s rich with conflict and dripping with tension, as Wolverine (the one time Lord of the Vampires) faces a new kind of nightwalker in a world where the night has become even more dangerous.

The issue marks a notable debut for Waltz in the Marvel universe, and he rises to the occasion with a tale that feels both new and deeply rooted in the lore of Wolverine. With four additional variant covers to choose from the inclusion of Kevin Eastman’s variant cover is a nod to the fans, a piece of art that connects the past and present of comic book history.

Ryp’s artwork is a highlight, showcasing his ability to bring a raw and visceral energy to the pages. His previous work on titles like “Crossed” and “Absolution” from long time publisher Avatar Press has clearly influenced his approach to Wolverine, resulting in a comic that’s as much a visual narrative as it is a written one.

“Wolverine: Blood Hunt #1” is a comic that respects its legacy while daring to venture into uncharted territory. It’s a story that promises to take Logan, and the readers, on a journey that’s as unpredictable as it is exciting. With surprise appearances from characters in Wolverine’s storied past, this issue is not just a chapter in a comic book; it’s a celebration of a character who has become an icon in his own right.

As the world of Marvel Comics grows ever darker, “Wolverine: Blood Hunt #1” stands out as a beacon for fans old and new. It’s a testament to the enduring appeal of a character who refuses to be defined by the darkness that surrounds him, instead choosing to fight back with every fiber of his being. This comic is a must for anyone who loves a story that’s as emotionally charged as it is action-packed.
