HARBINGER WARS tie-in! It’s payback time!

After Dr. Emanuel Kuretich freed Bloodshot from Project Rising Spirit, he promised Bloodshot that the answers to his identity would be found inside PRS’ secret Nevada facility. He lied. Instead, Bloodshot discovered two dozen super-powered psiot children – children that Kuretich then manipulated him into setting free. Now that the kids are out and have ignited a Harbinger War in the middle of the Vegas strip, Bloodshot is all that stands between them and the opposing forces of Toyo Harada and Peter Stanchek. But Bloodshot hasn’t forgotten about Kuretich. And he’s about to reap his revenge.

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Jun 19, 2013

    While the plot didn't take any big steps regarding HARBINGER WARS, it managed to successfully implement the characters and close a fairly big chapter in Bloodshot's life. Additionally, I'm really digging the moments where we can see what's going on in Bloodshot's mind and he makes a huge development in there. BLOODSHOT is Valiant's way of serving up a terrific R-rated action film once a month. Since issue 1, it has been consistent with offering twisted action, detailed panels and a legitimately engrossing adventure. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jun 20, 2013

    The strange thing about this issue is that it reads like a one-shot. It’s not be any means as a huge plot point pays off in this issue, but even if it was your first time reading it you wouldn’t be lost in the story. Much of the previous eleven issues are masterfully recapped throughout the story so that it’s like you’ve reading it without even being there. That’s some real skill. Check the series out and look for the amazing conclusion of Harbinger Wars next month as well. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Jun 24, 2013

    While there are some uneven qualities in the scripts, Swierczynski nonetheless brings some very good scenes and development with the titular character, bringing in some surprises and action along with the work of Kitson, Gaudiano and Reber. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Harper and Brandon Burpee Jun 20, 2013

    It was a really solid issue, but besides the cow moment, it wasn't super spectacular. It was just a rock solid Bloodshot issue with quality art from Kitson. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Jun 19, 2013

    Barry Kitson delivers a stellar set of pages again. The book looks great, especially those aforementioned chainsaw and machete scenes. Kitson inks some of his pages himself and others are inked by Stefano Gaudiano does the others, which is a slight problem because the styles are wildly different. Some pages are heavy on lines and shadows, others are smooth and lighter. It's not that one looks better than the other so much as they just look stylistically different. Read Full Review
