    Overall, 'Bloodshot Reborn' issue eighteen is yet another triumph in this fantastic series. It is a must read and a great calm before the storm of the next story, 'Bloodshot USA'. Stay tuned. Read Full Review

    Over all it was a good read that serves it's purpose. We are set up nicely for Bloodshot USA, as I said in my review of Bloodshot 17, this book is the best pound for pound comic that Valiant puts out. It's brilliantly written and drawn, and is a absolute pleasure to read each month. Read Full Review

    Bloodshot Reborn #18 brings another chapter to an end while setting us up for what comes next. After what they have done with these characters here, I'm sure a lot of us want to see what the Valiant Universe has in store for them when they jump into their next war. That is hoping they all make the journey back to land. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Oct 7, 2016

    This feels like the calm before the storm (to use an analogy that's used all too often, it's just incredibly fitting.) Lemire gives us something slow-paced, allowing us to strap ourselves in for another intense saga in the world of Bloodshot. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Oct 9, 2016

    Don't get me wrong this is a good issue – and the art is superb – but it's not exactly a comic that's a must read in terms of additional story content. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Amy Okamoto Oct 5, 2016

    Bloodshot Reborn #18 gives an intimate look into the psyche of Ray and the other Bloodshots while still serving up its trademark action. This beautifully rendered story is a terrific lead-in to the Bloodshot U.S.A. event. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Andrew McGlinn Oct 6, 2016

    Castaways from Bloodshot Island is the calm before the storm. Jeff is letting us take a pause while entertaining us with some new snippets of Bloodshot lore. Its a compact and tidy little entry into the Bloodshot Reborn cannon that serves as a little sweetener for the reader. The addition of Tomas on art is I hope – a statement from Valiant that they have a new (and exciting) artist on board, and one Im eager to see more of. So now weve had a little face time with the Bloodshot crew, isnt there the small problem of a nanite virus we need to address? Read Full Review

    Though this issue might leave readers a bit cold, Lemire and company still make pulling back the curtain on the Bloodshots an intriguing experience. Read Full Review

    When your series is as good as Bloodshot Reborn an average issue gets reviewed a bit harder because it has a lot to live up to. Read Full Review

    Some nice art doesnt save from a simultaneously cramped and shallow narrative. Read Full Review
