Bloodshot is Back in Bloodshot Reborn #1April 8, 2015
From New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (THE VALIANT, Green Arrow) and red-hot rising star Mico Suayan (HARBINGER, Moon Knight), VALIANT NEXT delivers an all-new ongoing series for Valiant’s most unrelenting hero!
I have to say when this crossed the desk at The GCE this week, my kid in me got a little excited at the prospect of Bloodshot making a return and let me tell you this: the first 5 pages of Bloodshot Reborn #1 did not fail to deliver one bit. The book will be released with not 1 or 2, but 8 different covers including a blank variant for all you convention enthusiasts that enjoy getting your own artwork done on them, or doing the artwork yourself.
Bloodshot’s nanites made him a nearly unstoppable killing machine. His enhanced strength, speed, endurance, and healing made him the perfect weapon, and he served his masters at Project Rising Spirit – a private contractor trafficking in violence – very well.
Now, Bloodshot is a shadow of his former self. He lives in self-imposed exile, reeling from the consequences of his past life and the recent events that nearly drove him mad. But when a rash of shootings by gunmen who appear to look just like Bloodshot begin, his guilt will send him on a mission to stop the killers, even if it means diving headlong into the violence that nearly destroyed him.
The full 40 pages by Valiant Entertainment will hit the shelves this April 15th at a cover price of $3.99 and with a well deserved T+ rating. If you’re as excited as I am about a Bloodshot return, I’m sure you’re probably already dialing the local comic shop or running out the door to pre-order all the covers now. If you’re still not convinced, let me share the excitement by giving you all the treat I got, here’s the first 5 pages and all of the variant covers. (Click to enlarge)
