Many years from now, Los Angeles has become a post-apocalyptic wasteland and the once unstoppable killing machine known as BLOODSHOT has become THE ANALOG MAN. Hopelessly outdated, Bloodshot's taken on a new role as the protector of a small town, eking out a subsistence existence with the great love of his life - Magic - and protecting a group of stragglers who've weathered the storm. But when a gang of marauders arrives, the settlement's survival is threatened, and Bloodshot is forced to bring justice to the distorted and disjointed badlands of the Valiant Univers more

    What's great about this book is that it's got a lot to offer longtime fans of the character, but it's also such a fresh take that new readers could easily pick it up and feel just as comfortable understanding what's going on. I cannot recommend this title enough. I think it'd be a great idea to read the previous two Bloodshot Reborn arcs, but not at all necessary to understand and enjoy this story, so don't be afraid to jump right in! Read Full Review

    It warrants mention again: read this book! This isn't the latest reboot or a mini-series, it's issue #10 of what is arguably Valiant Entertainment's flagship and/or premier comic book. Hands down, the best place for new readers to enter the world of Bloodshot! Read Full Review

    Bloodshot Reborn #10 is quite possibly the best issue in the series, being my favourite individual issue of the year so far. Giving us a visually stunning look at this dystopian future, with a story full of depth and intrigue, the creative team do more than enough to grab my attention, with there bound to be some new fans following this.

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jan 26, 2016

    Valiant is setting itself up with one imaginative and surprise laden story many will compare to Old Man Logan but it's its own science fiction beast. The world is hell as this rip roaring story takes you on a ride you don't want to miss. Read Full Review

    Hulking Reviewer - Kareem Ali Jan 27, 2016

    Bloodshot Reborn #10 is an engrossing start to the Analog Man story arc as it paints an intriguing picture of the current world while establishing an entertaining personal situation for Bloodshot. It unfolds in a smooth manner transitioning from Bloodshot's personal life in the settlement to his journey in collecting water when he's attacked. The action is good although it feels too similar to Mad Max to feel wholly unique. However, the conclusion more than makes up for that and I can't wait to get my hands on the next issue.

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Jan 27, 2016

    Bloodshot Reborn #10 continues to be one of the best books on the shelves even when Lemire and Larosa take us 30 years into the future to a Mad Max-esque wasteland. Lemire excels at characterization and building the world in a short amount of time, although he does get a little long-winded on fully fleshing out the world. The artwork really shines in this episode. It is truly magnificent from the action sequences to the more intimate personal moments. You should pick this up for the art alone; it's that good.

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Jan 27, 2016

    Bloodshot Reborn #10 is a fun read. Sure, the post-apocalyptic-wasteland deal has been done before, but Lemire, LaRosa and Reber do it well enough that it doesn't feel tired here. If anything, this book is full of excitement and any readers looking to jump onto Bloodshot have a great opportunity here. I'll certainly be back for more. Read Full Review

    Bloodshot Reborn #10 is a great jumping-on point, with a surprise guest in the closing pages that makes the wait for the next installment agonizing. Action-oriented comics don't come much better than this. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Andrew McGlinn Jan 25, 2016

    I'm completely on board with the direction of this new arc. It's not what I expected and having consumed this issue several times I'm now here for the long haul. Bloodshot is a fantastically exciting character, and the new setting Lemire has put him in – having Boodshot as the obsolete tech – is an interesting twist on the canon. I think this new story has some mileage, and it's going to be lively seeing what Jeff Lemire has dreamed up for us. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jan 28, 2016

    Bloodshot's latest presents the perfect on ramp for new readers, as Jeff Lemire and Co. leave the narrative of the present behind in lieu of exploring an all too familiar future. It's tough to read this issue without calling to mind other dystopian fiction " from the obvious Max Max comparison to other heroes-in-a-world-gone-bad tales such as Old Man Logan " but Lemire nonetheless manages to introduce these familiar tropes in a way that's still investing and world specific.
