Marvel Comics has revealed that the upcoming Werewolf by Night comic series will receive the Red Band treatment. Titles with the Red Band label promise a gory good time with more violence and gore than you would expect from the publisher. Jed MacKay and Pepe Larraz’s Blood Hunt, the first entry in the Red Band series, will be released in May 2024. These special editions will come bagged with a Parental Advisory warning on the front.

Werewolf by Night will be an ongoing series written by Jason Loo (Werewolf By Night: Blood Hunt, Sentry) with art by Sergio Dávila (Thor, Venom). The story follows Jack Russell, who “has been trying to live a simple life—but in the deadly and dramatic wake of the Blood Hunt, his life is about to be turned upside down in ways he never imagined! With new enemies hoping to extract a (literal) pound of flesh and Jack unsure if he can be trusted around old allies and a lost love, the original Werewolf by Night is in for the fight of his life… and he’s in it alone!”

In a statement given by Marvel Comics, Loo stated:

“I give Jack Russell a taste of the life he wants before the ‘Blood Hunt’ event rips it away and leaves blood on his hands. His new journey is to find redemption while figuring out his new lycanthropic transformation. No one is safe when the full moon is out. But luckily, Elsa Bloodstone is around to keep him in check.
Our team is delivering a very metal, monster comic and we’re not holding back. I’m both shocked and impressed at myself for conjuring up these gruesome scenes from the dark recesses of my mind, then seeing them come to life with every gory detail thanks to penciler Sergio Dávila and inker JP Mayer, as our editors keep giving us the thumbs up of approval. This is literally our smash room in a Red Band comic.”

Dávila added:

“This has been a great experience. Jason Loo is writing a very wild ‘Werewolf By Night’, and I’m having a lot of fun with the character. I’ve always enjoyed taking characters to the extreme and Werewolf By Night is someone very much tormented by his inner self, so this is a book full of intense action and lots of blood!”

The issue will go on sale starting August 14, 2024.
