    Blood Hunt only has two issues left, but the creative team is more or less saying they plan to deliver a hell of an ending with this issue.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Overall, Blood Hunt #3 is a suspenseful and action-packed chapter that deepens the conflict and throws a curveball at the heroes. Pick it up if you’re enjoying Blood Hunt and want to see the heroes face even greater challenges. If you prefer a more optimistic superhero story, you might want to skip this series.

    Nerd Initiative

    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.

    All the pieces are being moved on the board, ever closer to the final confrontation, as Blood Hunt #3 brings the whole affair to a solid middle point. This event is everything it proclaims to be, and is very much fine with being this type of blockbuster. Just the way it should be really.

    MacKay crafts a thrilling adventure in this issue. There isn’t a lot of action, but there is great tension and suspense throughout the issue as things build to some key and interesting moments for the characters. There are some great highlights throughout the issue especially with the reveals as well as Sam taking the reigns as the icon the world needs. There are some truly inspiring moments in the issue and I look forward to seeing what happens next.

    Larraz delivers stellar art throughout the issue. The visuals are thrilling, intense and emotionally compelling. A fantastic looking issue from start to finish.

    Graphic Policy

    Blood Hunt #3 is a solid issue with an epic ending that feels familiar but grand at the same time. What’s been interesting is that while the event is on a planetary scale, it still feels small and focused. It’s very smart in a lot of ways keeping the distractions to the tie-ins and mini-series that have spun out to it. While the threat is huge, it’s an intimate story of hope while facing the threat of annihilation.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics

    Blood Hunt #3 does little to progress the story and even less in terms of explanation and excitement. Yet another cliffhanger falls flat and Sam Wilson’s Independence Day speech was more cringe that inspirational. The event so far has been uninspired and while I hope Jed MacKay can turn that around in the final issues, I don’t have my hopes up. The art by Pepe Larraz is great, though, and is the reason my score is as high as it is.

    Blood Hunt feels like it’s jogging in place in issue #3. With so many tie-ins surrounding the event, neither Blade’s forces nor the Avengers can do all that much to directly confront the other for a while. Even Miles Morales’ surprise heel turn at the end of the last issue is snuffed out quickly and his subplot involving Dracula and Bloodline feels like something the writers need to drag out before circling back around to it at the climax. There’s still plenty to enjoy—Sam gets to add another great Captain America speech to that respective pantheon—but it’s uneventful overall.
