With the knowledge of what he’s done, and what the newest nanite bearers did with the nanites, we see “Ray” at a point where he needs to make a decision. Stay where he is, or do what needs to be done.
Jeff Lemire takes us to a dark place. His writing on this issue is a straight kick to the gut. It is so hard seeing a hero I’ve loved, go through such a harsh time in his life. This is the dark side of Valiant’s universe. There is always a dark side to being a hero. And for Bloodshot, this is it.
Mico. What can I say about this man’s artwork that hasn’t already been said. Stunning. Photorealistic. Nothing short of fantastic.
Colorist: David Baron blows me away with the stark contrast of colors against a overwhelming grey/dark overtone of this issue. It draws attention to specific panels beautifully.
I really can’t say any more about the covers. They are works of art befitting being hung in a museum.
The only thing I can say at this point in the series is….I am in. I am so in, it isn’t funny. The drama, the action, the writing, the artwork. No other comic on the market is like Bloodshot: Reborn.
