The vampire hunter known as Blade is back and hot on the trail of the undead! Following the bloody destruction left behind by a mysterious enemy, Blade discovers two new individuals, one in the guise of a devil, the other in a suit of iron. Are these mystery men here to help the legendary vampire hunter or are they out to eliminate him? Ultimate Comics Avengers 3 #1 features action so intense and art so violent that even the Internet can’t handle it!

Action so intense that even the Internet can’t handle it? Wow… this really must be a kick-ass issue. You’ll have to wait until August 11, 2010, and you’ll have to plop down $3.99 in order to confirm Marvel’s marketing or not.

    Thank god my subscription is about up for this book. What a waste of money this comic has been. This preview looks obnoxiously similar to the issue that introduced the Punisher to the team. Ooooooh look, it’s the Punisher killing random bad guys for half the book! In this panel he shoots one in the head and in this panel he stabs one in the chest and in the next panel he bashes their heads together and so on and so on! How original! Ugh.

    Sorry, just a little bitter I suppose.

    Wow. That is some horrible artwork. And the story looks like it may set a new standard for ridiculous. Not to mention over priced.

    Someone IS in charge over there at Marvel, right? Not just a room full of monkeys and basket of bananas?

      Don’t be condescending. Those monkeys have typewriters and editorial carte blanche.
