    Bloodshot Reborn #17 is a visually stunning experiencewith anequally enjoyable story. It take readers one step closer to the conclusion of “Bloodshot Island” which has been everything (and more) that fans could have possibly hoped it would be. Read Full Review

    Overall, Bloodshot Island's conclusion satisfies the reader and leaves us wanting more with its brilliant ending. The comic epitomizes everything that both the Bloodshot Island story-arc and Bloodshot Reborn ongoing series is about. Read Full Review

    Bloodshot Reborn #17is, so far at least, the best comic I've read this week (and I'm about 80% through my stack), which,honestly doesn't surprise me. However, if you're new to the series, this isn't the place to start – either wait for the trade containingThe Analogue Manand start there or look forBloodshot Reborn #1,otherwise you'll be a little lost.

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Sep 24, 2016

    This issue is what we'd call a “squeaky bum moment” – bare with us – as it's intense and you're expecting Deathmate to show up at any moment, but Jeff Lemire cleverly holds it off until the point where everything seems alright. It's a clever move and shows that Deathmate has a strong effect on people without even being near them. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jason Laframboise Oct 4, 2016

    I've enjoyed this story, this entire series since the first issue. Jeff Lemaire has taken a character that was only half fleshed out, a character that was really nothing more then a shoot em up action hero into a flawed but compelling character. Issue by issue, we have been treated to a brilliant series that is probably Valiant's best series. There's debate in boxing and MMA about the pound for pound best fighters, well Bloodshot Reborn is the pound for pound best book I have the pleasure of reading each month. I hope we get some answers about how Kay ended up in the hands of Rising Spirit. The epilogue comes out the following week so we won't have to wait long for these answers hopefully. The series will be transitioning into the Bloodshot USA story next month, and that story is set up at the end of this issue. So the story continues shortly, and we got a great story arc here, excellent read with amazing art. Read Full Review

    Bloodshot Island while undeniably good has been a little bit of a slow burner for me, but issue 17 is explosive and larger than life. This is the epitome of Legacy Bloodshot meets Bloodshot Reborn. Worlds are colliding here in a most satisfactory way. New and old fans will lap this up, and the premise of Bloodshot USA, well, thats just going to be fanboy heaven. Read Full Review

    GAMbIT Magazine - Alan D.D. Sep 30, 2016

    This comic series was a little strange at first sight, even more so if you start reading it as a newbie as I did, but it has been getting better with each issue, and I'm well on my way to considering myself a serious fan of this arc. I really suggest giving this one a try before the next chapter comes out! Read Full Review

    Bigger doesn't always equal better, but with this stellar creative team on a roll unlike anything we've seen yet, we're willing to bet that in this case it does. Read Full Review
