Review: Bloodshot: Reborn #4

Blighted by unexplained murders, happening in similar styles across a small part of America, The F.B.I. and Ray are in a race. One wants to stop the nanites from killing again, and the other wants to bring the killer in. But during this time, we see a certain gifted F.B.I agent has had a troubled past, and that Bloodsquirt and Kay may be more trouble that their worth.

Jeff Lemire finally brings Bloodshot over the hump, making him realize that there is something that he needs to do. People’s lives are at stake. The nanites have to be stopped, and there is only one way to do that. To bring them back into the fold.

Mico Suayan proves, yet once again, why he is the comics industries fastest up and coming superstar artist. His unique, specific style of using as close to photo realistic set pieces is just astounding. I truly do not think there is anything that I can say that hasn’t already been said.

With the dark overtones of this,book, David Baron has done a fantastic job of making sure that Mico’s work stands out against the background.

This was an awesome read, even “magical”. If Valiant keeps putting out boons like these, the big two need to stand up and pay attention

Ever since she appeared in our favorite ninja’s life, Roku has been something of an enigma. Her actions and demeanor seemed to be shadowing something deeper. Something harsh. From her first onset, she has captured readers attention, forcing us to contemplate who this woman, where did she come from, and why is she here. Just like our favorite ninja is thinking.

Finding one’s self is necessary for everyone…but not like this. Bloodshot is on a nanite – less mission to stop a nanite enraged person on a killing spree. It seems the nanites are smarter than we thought. How smart has yet to be seen. I have a feeling “Ray” still has a long way to go.
