The all-new ongoing series from New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (THE VALIANT) and rising star Mico Suayan (HARBINGER) reaches a blood-curdling turning point!

Bloodshot is hot on the trail of another mysterious mass-murderer - but he may find the only way to stop this madman is to do the one thing Bloodshot swore he would never do again. Can Bloodshot resist his past or will he succumb to the bloodthirsty voices in his head as they get louder...and more violent?

    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Jun 18, 2015

    It is a crime how beautiful, rich and gripping that this book is. Lemire, Suayan and Baron are becoming one of the best creative teams in comics and this work shows it. This book is certified perfection with a little of everything in it. Gripping story, powerful characterization, absolutely jaw dropping art and vivid colors make Bloodshot Reborn # 3 a solid single issue. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Kalem Lalonde Jun 15, 2015

    Every piece comes together perfectly to create one of my favourite issues of Valiant comics in recent memory. The art, the characters, the story all work in unison to create an emotionally resonant chapter for a story with the best kind of hero. The vulnerable one. Read Full Review

    Valiant continues their production of good, solid reading with this comic and series as a whole and Jeff Lemire continues to show why he is one of the most respected writers in the industry today. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Daniel Gehen Jun 22, 2015

    Mico Suayan's detailed, gritty artwork is perfectly suited for a character as hardcore as Bloodshot. Then he throws in an image of the cartoonish Bloodsquirt, who sticks out like a sore thumb, and the book becomes even more enjoyable. Add on top of it a fantastic script from Jeff Lemire, and Bloodshot Reborn #3 is another great addition to the rebirth of Valiant's most badass killing machine. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Ken Godberson III Jun 22, 2015

    Within three issues, Lemire, Suayan and Baron have turned me around on what I thought was a flat character by injecting great amount of cultural commentary. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jun 17, 2015

    Bloodshot Reborn is also the book to be reading because of the interior artwork. Impressive all the way through when having these characters look so real engages you in a way that allows you to experience what they are going through. The self-destruction of Ray is seen through the way he carries himself. Nothing about his expressions or habits says he's someone who is happy about his life. Then you have the aggressive side to Kay which has come out quite suddenly when you see that her innocent smiles are not enough to influence Ray to do anything she suggests, being a voice in his head and all. Something you start to notice and like about Agent Festival is her calm demeanor. With everything that has gone on there are few times where you see her show any expression that would make her seem unprofessional. Aside from this some of these pages are drawn out so well that even without a narration to them they could tell their own story about some of these characters. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Brady Steele Jun 17, 2015

    This creative team is really working well together. This storyline is really coming along nicely and organically. It doesn't feel rushed or scattered. Lemire and company clearly have things in order and we, dear readers get enjoy a refreshing take on a character that for so long seemed be one note. I read awhile back that Bloodshot was going to become a movie in the not-too-distant future. Now I can see why. There is plenty of potential with Bloodshot so come find out what crazy revenge and redemption looks like. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Jun 21, 2015

    The story loses its poignancy in the scenes with the FBI. Diane Festival, a somewhat prescient special agent, leads the investigation of the killings but never uncovers any information we dont already know. This could still work if the scenes were particularly interesting. Unfortunately they mostlyinvolvethe boorish and condescending Agent Hoyt, who behaves like a complete dick to Festival fr no good reason. I cannot buy that someone his unprofessional is a high-ranking FBI agent. This section of the book adds nothing to the story. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Jun 19, 2015

    Initially, things felt a little bit flat. Perhaps Lemire and Suayan were trying to find their footing early with the series. I think that footing has finally been found. After events portrayed in this issue, Ray can no longer go back. I suppose Lemire and Suayan can't either. It's all in from here. Read Full Review
