    I don't want to spoil anything, but there's a sequence that winds down #11 where Lemire once again bounces between the post-apocalyptic present and past to perfect effect and emotion. The similarities between this story and Old Man Logan are there for sure, and Lemire is writing that book now too, but what sets Bloodshot: Reborn apart from that series are these wonderful characters that are like no other superheroes I've read before. Valiant is doing superheroes better than any other publisher in my humble opinion. Buy the two previous Bloodshot: Reborn trades from Lemire and start The Analog Man on your pull list – today. It is worth it. So worth it. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Eric Ogar Baumgard Feb 21, 2016

    As you may already know, this story is set 30 years in the future. Because of this, any reader can jump into this story with any level of knowledge about the characters and get a masterfully told story that both stands on its own as well as builds from, and on, all the history of each character involved. If you haven't yet, now is the time to get into the Valiant universe as the quality of their books continues to rise, positioning them as one of the best, or in my opinion THE best publisher in the comic industry today. If that seems like a bold statement, pick up this book and see for yourself. You won't be disappointed. Read Full Review

    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Feb 22, 2016

    Lemire, Larosa and Reber present us a stunning story full of emotion, power, adventure, love, death " it had a little bit of everything but fit perfectly together. There is a wonderful plot, a strong characterization and exquisite story that just makes this issue just a joy to read. This storyline has been a triumph and as long as Lemire continues to do so, this might be one of Valiant best stories " ever. Read Full Review

    Whether you read The Analogue Man in single issue form or trade paperback, with two issues in, this has the potential to be an absolute blinder of a story.This is well worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Andrew McGlinn Feb 23, 2016

    Over the eleven issues so far, Jeff Lemire's reboot of Bloodshot has added layers of complexity that other franchises have taken years to achieve. There is so much flawed humanity to this character, and once again Jeff is putting Bloodshot through the wringer. The Analogue Man is proving to be an interesting twist on a fallen/reluctant hero storyline and I'm not completely sure what is coming next. It's Bloodshot we're talking about so it will be undeniably brutal, but this Bloodshot is also a lot more than violence and that is what is keeping me interested. That, and some truly sensational art. Read Full Review

    Bloodshot Reborn #11 cranks the dial to eleven and it is no longer Ray we are left with. One unfortunate event after the next we were subjected to in order to experience the despair of this future and they didn't pull a punch. Read Full Review

    Bloodshot Reborn #11 is a solid continuation to the Analog Man story arc delving deeper into Bloodshot's character development in a powerful way. And Ninjak's battle against the technological goo and the latter's subsequent connection to the attack on Bloodshot made their quest more intriguing. As a result the Shadowmen have become more interesting antagonists. However, the lack of answers regarding the technological goo takes away somewhat from the overall issue but does make me look forward to them even more. So hopefully next issue will reveal a little more about the threat behind the destructive path of the goo. Read Full Review

    Bloodshot Reborn #11 may not have been quite as epic as the last installment, but it was nevertheless amazing, moving the story forward in an engaging manner. It would also give us some shocking twists, with there being more than enough to look forward to in the next issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Feb 25, 2016

    Issue #11 continues to move the story along a well worn path, Lemire again relying on familiar plot beats to advance his unfolding story. Such presentation makes for a somewhat predictable issue, but considering how well it's done that same expectation does nothing to dull the overall enjoyment of the arc. Read Full Review

    A good issue with action and drama and looks that could kill. It plays out as you'd expect though which makes this issue lack the surprises and the punch the first issue had. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Feb 23, 2016

    In a landscape dominated by difficult to penetrate ongoing titles, Bloodshot Reborn #11 stands as an entertaining and visually engrossing jumping on point. Jeff Lemire, Brian Reber, and Lewis Larosa take what could have been another grim and gritty tale of revenge and bloodshed and transformed it into a rich yarn that makes the most of Valiant's diverse cast of characters and sheds a new, fresh light on one of its most recognizable leads. Though not without a tired comic trope that desperately should be put to pasture, Bloodshot Reborn #11 seems to be making a real effort to live up to the reborn in its title. Read Full Review
