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

Broken Angels 2: Go Down Fighting

It’s all hands on deck, leviathan is under attack! P.R.S. doesn’t know what to do as they are being attacked on multiple fronts. Harada, being as presumptuous as he is, underestimated P.R.S. Not many things catch Harada off guard, P.R.S. was one of them, the other…well…you’ll have to pick up the book.

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.

The quiet desperation of a man-out-of-time doing his best to reclaim the humanity and life he once had, all while the world wants him either for what he can do for them, or do to them. Unity is finally at odds with Neville on this one. They understood he wasn’t a threat. But, through Neville’s actions, we may have made him one.

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.

The team is as fit as there ever can be, and it is wearing them down. It takes them bringing in an unstable superpowered individual to show them, and others, that they need some rest.

“Book 2”

It seems Valiant has their own Bat..hmph ahh. No not even close. Better than that other guy. Ninjak has surpassed him as my favorite brooding, lethal badass. He has literally covered all the angles of this op. Almost…

Finally! Some answers! But also…more questions. And sadness, and elation. So many emotions in this issue, I myself can’t describe everything I’m feeling. As a father myself, I couldn’t have done what Abram was asked to do for his country, but totally know what it feels like knowing you have a chance to make a difference in your childs life. Also, once again…Ninjak is a badass.

The next phase of Valiant kicks off with and amongst the first off the line is the action-heavy adventures of Bloodshot, the super-soldier, unkillable, reluctant hero. While he’s been a mainstay of the larger universe of these comics, he’s been largely a solo act who reluctantly gets teamed up again and again – now after a long while, he’s back running solo, but is the character strong enough to carry the comic? Especially after all that’s happened? That’s what I try and assess here. ALSO! If you are still reading The Valiant and other series, minor spoilers ahead!

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? Continue reading Review: Bloodshot Reborn #1
