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

Descender is a new series debuting this week from Image Comic. The series was created by the team of writer Jeff Lemire and artist Dustin Nguyen. It’s the story of the United Galactic Council still recovering from an attack on its core worlds by giant robots called Harvesters some ten years earlier. Before the Harvesters attack, Dr. Jin Quan was the foremost authority on robotic A.I. Shortly after the attack, he theorized that if the base code, a codex, for the Harvesters could be deciphered, then some insight into their origins and motivations could be understood and future attacks could prevented. Sadly, a great fear of robots swept across the galaxy leading the a robot genocide. Dr. Quan fell on hard times in the intervening years until UGC comes calling. On an abandoned mining colony, a robot model called Tim-21 uplinked to the galactic network, and he has a codex similar to the Harvesters. Now, the UGC must find Tim-21 before he falls prey to anti-robot fanatics. Continue reading Review: Descender #1
