    Herotaku - Jamal Melancon Mar 3, 2014

    Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps: Corps #0 is not only a jump-on point for new readers looking to get into Bloodshot, it's a great comic all by itself. The large amount of people that worked on this comic created an astonishing final product, from start to finish. "Three Decades of Destruction" equals three decades of awesome storytelling, in this case. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Elkin Feb 25, 2014

    These Valiant zero issues are amazing little gifts from a company that obviously cares about what they are producing. They seem to understand that hiring incredibly talented people to create their books works best when they trust them to do what they do best, stay out of their way, and let them roll.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Feb 26, 2014

    Bloodshot and the H.A.R.D. Corps #0 is worth the read if you are a fan of either Bloodshot or H.A.R.D. Corps. After how the last issue ended, this was the perfect time to take a look back and realize just how good some of these new recruits have it compared to those of the past. This is the one book from Valiant where you take a look at the action, and are able to be brought down to a level where you re-evaluate what these characters are sacrificing the minute Project Rising Spirit has leverage over them.

    Max Level Geek - Jonathan Semoneit Feb 26, 2014

    Bloodshot & H.A.R.D. Corps #0 doesn't wow us like Valiant's previous zero issues. It's not wholly necessary either. But there's enough over-the-top gore and intrigue, that we often like to see from this series, to keep us satisfied. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Joe Morrison Feb 25, 2014

    As an introduction to the world of these characters, Bloodshot and the H.A.R.D. Corps #0 is solid if unspectacular. The decade spanning nature of the story means that not many characters are in this the whole way through and the current team are name checked but not developed. If the ongoing series manages to maintain the same bleak tone and develop characters a bit more, this could be well worth a read. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Feb 25, 2014

    This was a very interesting and informative zero issue. We got all the dirt on H.A.R.D. Corps as well as a little bit more history between Bloodshot and Major Palmer. While having several different artists can be something that hampers a book, that is not the case this issue. Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps continues its streak of quality issues and creative story telling. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Eric Biewenga Feb 26, 2014

    I recommend this book on the account that you want more history to the H.A.R.D. corps. It isn't a necessary issue but Valiant does have a way to put hidden nuggets in the zero issues that comes to flourish later on. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Feb 26, 2014

    Let there be no doubt "Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps: H.A.R.D. Corps" #0 is a bloody comic. When war and business cross paths, things can be unsettling, especially in periods of extreme upheaval. This comic is a collection of critical junctures throughout the history of H.A.R.D. Corps, all of which add to the fabric behind the Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps quilt. This is a fine addition to the series so far and should prove to be more beneficial as H.A.R.D. Corps continues to evolve, especially given some of the revelations set for in this issue regarding mental and physical stability. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Feb 26, 2014

    If you're really passionate about the H.A.R.D. Corps, then you're sure to be satisfied as co-writers Christos Gage and Joshua Dysart take your hand and walk you through the organization's dark, harsh and bloody history. However, odds are you'll find yourself down the middle if you're part of the crowd that thinks Bloodshot has taken a backseat in the title. That said, Gage and Dysart continue to impress as co-writers and, despite there being a whole lot of artists, the visuals remain consistent. However, whether this is worth purchasing will be entirely up to just how interested you are in the H.A.R.D. Corps' history. Read Full Review
