    This was a good end to “Get Some” which gave us some closure to Palmer's past, left room to take Bloodshot in a different direction, and looked into Vagabond's past to let us understand the person he became to join this team. Whatever comes next in the #0 issue hopefully gives us more insight and understanding in those other areas of this book which isn't as clear as the rest. We have gotten a good balance of character and concept from Joshua Dysart and Christos Gage so far, something which should continue for this series to grow. Read Full Review

    If you are thirsting for some real action outside the normal heroes this book is for you. It will give you a little insight of Bloodshot before you can jump full in with the next arc. I love this character and what is happening and I can't wait to see what next with the little gem given to you at the end. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Feb 19, 2014

    Bloodshot and H.A.R.D.Corps is an action packed title that delivers with every issue. Gage and Dysart have a knack for planting seeds and building on them in future issues and this month continues the trend. While the art was sketchy (pun intended) in some places, it wont affect the overall enjoyment of this solid issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Feb 21, 2014

    While this super-powered corporately-funded wetworks team book might not be for everyone, everyone who buys this is in for a solid read, provided they're looking for a little bloodshed and destruction with their super powers on the side. This two-part story with Sears and ChrisCross on the art chores is a nice sampler of things past and things to come as "Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps" #19 closes a chapter for Bloodshot and begins constructing another. Read Full Review

    The big 2 historically have good story lines, good character development and editorial teams that make sure nothing steps out of ordinary. Vertigo has taken the stops out of the process and has given us books like Bloodshot. With physiology akin to wolverine (injected with extremis) and ideology akin to punisher, bloodshot provides us with Big 2 caliber stories without the requirement of innocence. Now, onto the arc. The book doesn't take itself too seriously, and is fun and is the essence of comic book story telling. You could read this issue as a one shot and still enjoy it. I recommend picking up at least one valiant book.
