Kevin Eastman is taking another slice at the Marvel Universe. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator has drawn a variant cover for Wolverine: Blood Hunt #1, a gore-filled tie-in with Marvel’s upcoming vampire event Blood Hunt. The first in a four-issue limited series, the issue marks the Marvel Comics debut of Eastman’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin collaboratorTom Waltz, and features pencils by current Wolverine comic run artist Juan Josè Ryp.

See Eastman’s just-revealed Wolverine: Blood Hunt #1 cover below, pitting the Adamantium metal-clawed mutant and Louise of the Nightguard against a horde of foot soldiers for the vampire nation.

“I’ve spent much of my career writing about iconic mutants, so having my Marvel debut be a chance to put ‘the best there is’ through a vampiric bloodstorm in Wolverine: Blood Hunt is an absolute thrill of a lifetime,” Waltz said in a statement. “It’s made even better by getting to do it alongside the amazingly talented Juan José Ryp, top-notch colorist GURU-eFX, and stellar editors Mark Basso and Drew Baumgartner! Blood, bullets, claws, and fangs—nothing gets held back in our four-issue gauntlet of gore!” 

Waltz, who serves as Manager, Creative Development/Senior Editor for IDW Publishing, previously penned the graphic novels The Last Fall, Children of the Grave, After the Fire, and Silent Hill: Sinner’s Reward, and his credits include the video games Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Brothers Unite and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan. Eastman recently collaborated with Marvel on the anthology series Elektra: Black, White & Blood and King-Size Conan, and created variant covers for issues of Daredevil, Daredevil: Black Armor, and Wolverine: Patch.
