Sometimes gunslingers go out the hard way. H.A.R.D. Corps has just experienced its first fatality. Bloodshot is severely weakened. He and Charlie are at each other's throats. And the new rookies are a mess. It would be suicide to take on Harada now... so that's exactly what they'll do.

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Nov 21, 2013

    This book also seems to have gained more of a plot since Harbinger Wars. Bloodshots actions are more justifie, and the stakes have been raised extraordinarily high. Theres also some excellent behind the scenes content with PRS, something we havent seen much of. Weve seen a lot of Haradas organization and now were getting a look into PRS and it only blurs the lines between good and bad even more. This book very much deals in shades of grey and its nearly impossible to decide whether we should even be rooting for Bloodshot anymore. Theres a lot more to this book now and instead of feeling bloated, it just feels like theres a lot more about it to enjoy. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Nov 20, 2013

    Bloodshot and H.A.R.D. Corps is the most thrilling stories you can experience from Valiant's line up. You love this book because it is that high-octane read that catches you visually. Not because of the action, but for being able to grab you with the suspense. You know how bad things are going to get for this team, and you know that they will. What they go up against is a force out of their league and for most of this it can turn into a suicide mission at any moment. That is what's so exciting about this book, anything can happen. No punches are pulled and again things are only going to get worse for them before it gets any better. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Nov 19, 2013

    Action fans will love Bloodshot And H.A.R.D. Corps #16 but it's also as thought provoking as many of Valiant's titles that never ceases to be fun and exciting. Bloodshot is relentless and so is this issue and makes most all other action comics pale in comparison but still understands how to have fun too. Bloodshot And H.A.R.D. Corps goes beyond the one dimensional action characters by providing diversity and depth and shouldn't be missed by, not just fans of action but, fans of comics in general. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Nov 20, 2013

    BLOODSHOT & THE H.A.R.D. CORPS takes a twisted turn and has left us on one helluva note. It's a cliffhanger where I honestly have no idea what direction it'll take and I'm itching to find out. Dysart and Gage have taken such a violent character and turned his title into something legitimately fun without sacrificing who he is. If you want a book that's incredibly well-written, full of interesting characters and all kinds of crazy action, this is it. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Nov 18, 2013

    Valiant is doing a great job of introducing new characters into already established books and giving them their own title. This book is no exception; while I love Bloodshot working with H.A.R.D. Corps, its only a matter of time before this goes back to being a solo title. With Dysart leading the charge, and the beautiful scenes drawn by Lupacchino, this is a cant miss book. Read Full Review
