    Comics: The Gathering - Jason Laframboise Sep 9, 2016

    This book is such a compelling read, and every week when it is on the shelf it's a great week. I look forward to it every month and I can't wait to see where we are heading. Not to spoil my star rating but this would be 10 based entirely on the art. It would also be a 10 based on the writing. I wish I could give the book an 11. Please buy this book! Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Sep 1, 2016

    Bloodshot Reborn #16 is one of, if not the, best comic so far in the series. Lemire is firing on all cylinders, with the plot getting very interesting, and his dialogue between the newest Bloodshot and Bloodhound being a particular highlight. But it's the art from Mico Suyan and colourist David Baron that steals the show yet again. The comic is quite possibly one of the best on the racks this week, rivaled only by Valiant's 4001 A.D. #4, and is a pleasure to read. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Aug 31, 2016

    Bloodshot Reborn #16 is a step up as each issue is progressively better than the last. We are working up to something big and you want to root for Bloodshot all the way as he proves he is not as obsolete as those like Kozol make him out to be. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Sep 1, 2016

    When compared to recent arcs, Bloodshot Island feels smaller in narrative scope - more summer blockbuster than conspiracy thriller. That being said, it's also one of the more purely entertaining acts Jeff Lemire has put out, driven by its action heavy plot and the consistently fantastic art of Mico Suayan. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Andrew McGlinn Aug 30, 2016

    This issue is a tough one to critique, and not because its bad. There is so much going on in Bloodshot Island that excites you about potentialities in future of Bloodshot storylines that is does tend to distract you from the actual story you are reading. Clearly Bloodshot Island is a vehicle into Rays participation in The Future of Valiant event that will close out 2016 – that groundwork is featured heavily – and yet there is still actual story here. Its almost like you cant really appreciate the chocolate you are eating right now because you are so looking forward to the pizza you are getting later. That being said, I enjoyed Rays change from hunted to hunter in this issue, and especially the character relationship development with Bloodhound. So lets round up the Bloodshot Corps and get off this damn Island already. Now, where the hell is Magic? Read Full Review
