    Big Comic Page - Andrew McGlinn Apr 18, 2016

    Part three of The Analogue Man is quite simply one of the best issues of a comic I have read in a long time. Coming from someone that reviews comics that statement should be taken with the gravitas it implies. I actually cannot think of one thing to criticise in this issue, except that when I finished it I wanted more. The creative team have hit the sweet spot with this issue and the portrayal of Ninjak and Bloodshot at the most basic levels levels of these characters are gives the reader genuine elation. Such was the impact of this penultimate episode I may require some kind of body armor to read the conclusion. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Eric Ogar Baumgard Apr 18, 2016

    Anyone who knows me while will likely know that Bloodshot has been my personal favorite comic character for about a year now, but I want to assure you that my positive feelings for this book aren't just a reflection of my bias for the character. This comic is truly a work of art, and my only complaint is that this arc will be over in only one more month. Do yourself a favor and either pick up the issues of this story, Bloodshot Reborn 10-13, or at least buy the trade when it comes out. Read Full Review

    Bloodshot Reborn #12 is yet another example of why “The Analog Man” is one of the best story arcs out the now, with the gripping action and emotional baggage allowing for a sensational narrative. Add to this some mysterious developments near the end, and there is literally no reason why you shouldn't be reading this story. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Amy Okamoto Apr 18, 2016

    Hot Hot Hot! The story is heating up with pulse-pounding action and a quest to discover the truth. The terrific art in this book by LaRosa and Reber make Lemires story jump off the page. The arc concludes in the next issue. Dont miss out. This feast for the eyes will be an arc you will want to read again and again. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 19, 2016

    With a good balance of flashbacks to remind us of why Bloodshot wants revenge this issue works well to deliver major action with emotional resonance. This might go down as one of the most epic action comics you've ever seen. Read Full Review

    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Apr 20, 2016

    The Analog Man Part 3 races to its finale with great characterization and gory action. Lemire races to the finale as we get an idea of who is behind everything very nonchalantly, but it works for the character. The speed of the issue is both a strength and a weakness, but is the only real false note in an otherwise flawless performance. The art is literally some of the best art that I have ever seen. And The Analog Man Part 3 sets up a brutal finale that will be entertaining and character changing. Read Full Review

    The same is just as true of this issue as well. You need to read this series, for the art if nothing else. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jason Laframboise Apr 20, 2016

    This series has been awesome so far. Jeff Lemire has masterfully told his story to this point. I am a little confused about how this fits into the continuity of the Valiant Universe. Some things that have happened in past issues of this arc don't really jive with the future events we were shown in the Book of Death's Fall of.... books. There is speculation from some of the Valiant faithful that this is all a dream or more implanted memories. Either way this was a great issue and it will be exciting to see the conclusion of the Analogue Man story. Read Full Review
