This May, the eternal night envelops the Marvel Universe in Jed MacKay and Pepe Larraz’s BLOOD HUNT! In addition to the main series, the bloodiest event in Marvel history will spin out into various limited series, one-shots, and series tie-in issues. Today, fans can learn about the remaining tie-in stories yet to be revealed: HULK: BLOOD HUNT #1 and WEREWOLF BY NIGHT: BLOOD HUNT #1. Under the vampire’s savage reign, no one on Earth is safe from their insatiable blood lust, not even two of Marvel’s most fearsome beings—HULK and WEREWOLF BY NIGHT! The creatures of the night will boldly try sinking their teeth into these horror legends across two action-packed one-shots. Continuing his monster-filled and spine-chilling run of Incredible Hulk, writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson is joined by artist Danny Earls in HULK: BLOOD HUNT #1. And rising Marvel star Jason Loo and acclaimed artist Adam Gorham reveal the shocking transformation BLOOD HUNT will inflict on the new Werewolf by Night in WEREWOLF BY NIGHT: BLOOD HUNT #1. As BLOOD HUNT wreaks untold havoc, one of those affected in a most unexpected way will be Werewolf by Night! Imbued with new abilities, a new look, and a dangerous new direction, this Werewolf by Night is UNLIKE ANY YOU HAVE SEEN OR KNOWN BEFORE! Starring Jake Gomez, WEREWOLF BY NIGHT: BLOOD HUNT promises to be one tie-in story no BLOOD HUNT order is complete without! “I love that I get to flex a dark, macabre writing muscle than my usual fare in Marvel,” Loo expressed “In this one-shot starring the Jake Gomez aka the new Werewolf By Night, both artist Adam Gorham and myself are delivering a teen-horror Grindhouse feature that’s so gruesome, you’ll need permission from your parent/guardian to read it. BLOOD HUNT!!!” In HULK: BLOOD HUNT, Hulk and Banner’s quest to save Charlie’s soul leads them through the Old West town of Old Tucson, population of one… but the last man in town has a heck of a story to tell. Before the night ends, Hulk and Banner will learn that there’s a lot more than meets the eye in Old Tucson, and that there’s a lot more under the desert floor than either of them could have guessed. Don’t miss this spine-chilling chapter of BLOOD HUNT! “Bringing The Incredible Hulk back to his horror roots this past year was one of the easiest writing decisions I’ve ever made.” Johnson shared. “As a fan, I love Hulk best when he’s scary, fighting other monsters even as he reminds us he’s one of them. So when Marvel asked if I thought Hulk could have a place in BLOOD HUNT, again, it was a no-brainer. Danny Earls and I are crafting a creepy, haunting story for vampire fans and Hulk fans alike that I guarantee they’ve never seen before, and that they won’t easily forget.”

Josh Brolin is in negotiations to star in Weapons, the New Line horror thriller from Barbarian filmmaker Zach Cregger.The feature is Cregger’s highly anticipated Barbarian follow-up and was to have shot last year but the dual writers and actors strikes caused the movie to push its initial fall 2023 start of production. That caused a conflict with the project’s previous star, Pedro Pascal, whose schedule ran up against his commitment to Fantastic Four, which is shooting this summer.Cregger wrote the top secret script for Weapons, which is described as an interrelated, multistory horror epic that tonally is in the vein of Magnolia, the 1999 actor-crammed showcase from filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson.If a deal is made, it will be a coup for the production. Brolin is known to be choosy about projects and directors, and while he has done sci-fi and comic book movies, has never done a horror movie. (via THR)

The smash hit, dark retelling of Sleeping Beauty returns! Eisner Award-nominated writer, producer, and director Christopher Cantwell (Regarding the Matter of Oswald’s Body, Halt and Catch Fire) is joined by rising-star artist Alex Lins (Hellcat, Crypt of Shadows) for the next chapter of the unforgettable dark fantasy BRIAR! In the wake of slaying Deadcrawl, Grendrid’s deadly henchman, Briar Rose and her companions have become quite the band of bounty hunters with a reputation for murder and mayhem that belies their chivalrous intentions. But overzealous local authorities are not the only foes Briar will face, as Spider hatches a plan that will get them closer than ever to Briar’s malevolent fairy godmother–to the castle of Grendrid herself! “Briar focuses on people who have fallen out of the grander story, or feel they have no place in it at all. This book is what happens when the entire fairy tale comes apart, and only a few, fringe characters are left to pick up the pieces, having to forge their own radical destinies instead of being handed happy endings,” said writer Christopher Cantwell. “Briar is for anyone with heart: it is visceral, it is poetic, and the protagonists go much deeper than most heroes do,” said series artist Alex Lins. “I cannot overstate how thrilled I am that Briar is back for its next chapter,” added series editor Allyson Gronowitz. “Chris is back with a jaw-dropping new arc, and the talented Alex Lins is joining us for Briar’s second outing. I couldn’t be happier!” BRIAR #5 will be available in comic shops May 15, 2024. It is available for pre-order at your local comic shop. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including Kindle, iBooks, and Google Play.

Eisner-nominated writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson (Incredible Hulk) and rising star artist SOM (Brigands) give birth to an iconic new noir lead in the macabre new thriller CROCODILE BLACK at BOOM! Studios in May 2024. What makes someone turn to crime–especially in a modern, pandemic-riddled dystopia? During the height of the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic, Danny–a seemingly mundane young man lost in escapism with a spiraling lack of control over his life–sees something during a delivery job that will change him forever, turning his life as dark as the black, crocodile-skin boots he can’t take his eyes off of… “Crocodile Black is a story about dark reinvention. It’s about hidden trauma, unchecked obsession, the power that masks give us, and a dead man’s black crocodile-skin boots. It’s about a COVID-era kid with no prospects finding something he never knew he wanted, and using it to become someone he never knew he wanted to be: a dangerous man. “At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, I was fascinated with how many people left behind jobs they hated or college programs they were never that interested in, and pursued paths they’d been afraid to before. Crocodile Black is a thought-provoking, disturbing take on that phenomenon. It’s a story I hope will leave readers asking themselves, “Given the opportunity, could I be capable of great things, too… or terrible things?” “Som is a visionary, a genius of an artist. He was the only choice to draw CrocodileBlack. Much of Som’s work illustrates the otherworldly or grotesque violently intruding on reality, which we really wanted to capture for this story. I routinely get art back from Som with elements that are so distinct or haunting that it impacts the way I write for him going forward. More than any other, that kind of collaboration is the reason I love the medium like I do. Som is a joy to work with, and I’m beyond excited for readers to experience Crocodile Black,” said series writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson. “I found Crocodile Black to be a harrowing tale of immoral dissent triggered by PTSD and blended with the cold narration style of contemporary American Crime fiction. It strikes a delicate balance between mayhem and sanity which I often try to capture in my works. And having lived the dysphoria that COVID-19 was, who wouldn’t want to talk about the time that changed us. Needless to say, I just had to grab this. “It was Philip’s writing that pulled me in. He has an incredible understanding of the medium and creates brutally harrowing moments page after page with such aplomb, that it becomes a joyride for someone like me. It pushes me to create visuals that could do justice to the writing. I truly hope this labour of love fascinates you all the same way it fascinates us. “People at BOOM! were an absolute treat to work with. Ramiro understands an artist’s creative approach, and went out of his way to give me the time I needed to visualise the story. So thrilled to be a part of this series.” said series artist SOM. CROCODILE BLACK #1 will be available in comic shops May 8, 2024. It is available for pre-order at your local comic shop. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including Kindle, iBooks, and Google Play.
