From the ashes of The Valiant comes a story of one man’s personal journey to both try to come to terms, and try to forget, his past. But it is hard to do when you have been a direct part of recent history. Bloodshot has done alot of bad things in the past, but one person was able see past all what he’s done to see the good person beneath the nanites. But, even he, with all his experience and new abilities, was not enough to save her from death. Or was he?
Jeff Lemire starts us off after the emotional events of The Valiant, with a normal man trying to pick up the pieces of his past life. Lemire manages to twist the knife in this issue. His writing made me feel bad to the point I wanted to give “Ray Garrison” an intervention and tell him he’s not alone. Not anymore. Great job Jeff.
The art team of Mico Suayan and David Baron, with the photo-realistic artwork, made me feel that I could reach in and give bloodshot a hug. With such fine details, you kind of get the feel you are right there beside him, taking notes. Great job guys.
All together this series promises to open up the world to us and bloodshot alike. With the writing and art talent at the helm with this series, I’m sure were are in for an emoitional rollercoaster ride.
