Following up on the first issue's Clint Barton story, Blood Hunters #2 features a different Hawkeye story, this time featuring Kate Bishop as she teams up with a brand new vampire hunter. And finally there's also a story starring the Hulk, which shows what happens when vampires drink Gamma blood.

"The bloody chaos continues as the events of Blood Hunt spill across the Marvel Universe! When the skies go dark, what will happen when a group of vampires gets a taste of the Hulk’s gamma-irradiated blood?! Kate Bishop takes aim against the creatures of the night with the help of a mysterious new vampire hunter," reads Marvel's official description of Blood Hunters #2. 

"And Dagger and Elsa Bloodstone have teamed up to face down the vampiric hordes – but when a new combatant enters the field, will she prove friend or foe? Or both?! The formation of Marvel’s wildest new team yet, the Blood Hunters, continues!"

Blood Hunt #2 goes on sale June 5 with a cover by Greg Land, seen above.

Blood Hunt writer Jed MacKay is promising a "true horror show" when the event arrives this summer.
