    Bloodshot Reborn #4 is a chilling issue that explores the depths of the impact of psychotic killers not only in the form of Bloodshot's character development but Agent Festival as well. The turn of events adding a new character to the mix has potential so Bloodshot isn't just dealing with Bloodsquirt and Kay in his quest to reacquire the nanites. The action is intense although the acquisition of the nanites doesn't feel as monumental as last issue. But this issue definitely makes this story arc more intriguing. Read Full Review

    Bloodshot: Reborn continues to be the best book that Valiant is producing at the moment, and with some stiff competition, this is no easy feat. Giving us some exciting developments, as well as an intriguing new character addition, this issue leaves us a lot to ponder over, with Ray's psychological state still being at the center.

    Beyond this the constant changing of hues for each scene is something that should be pointed out because that usually indicates how you should feel about what's going on at that moment. That is to say that most of this is very grim in general. Read Full Review

    To stop his old nanites from turning innocent people into unhinged killing machines, our former supreme assassin Ray Garrison / Bloodshot has kill. To stop a killer machine from making more killers, he has to kill the infected people and take in his old techno- infection back into his own system.

    Jeff Lemire has done an excellent job exploring the anti-hero's fractured mind in recent issues, and issue #4 is no different. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Lido Giovacchini Jul 7, 2015

    Bloodshot Reborn is another great example of 90s nostalgia implemented perfectly. It finds the exact right ways to take old and tired concepts that didnt even really work during their heyday and invigorate them with a depth and force of purpose thats deeply compelling and highly engaging. Best of all its able to stand tall simply on its own merits, acting as a great entry point into the Valiant comics universe and a thoroughly unique and gripping exploration of the values of inhumanity.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jul 11, 2015

    I think Suayan has gotten better as the issues have gone along. The art is gritty and harsh, but very human. The battle with the maniac was full of energy and danger. The art fits the series well and is becoming a true strength. Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - JAdam Jul 21, 2015

    This is a good comic for anyone who likes outstanding artwork coupled with hard-hitting writing. Bloodshot Reborn is a dark tale about a tortured soul following his problematic moral compass fostered by his broken mind. There is plenty of action with a variety of characters and a compelling storyline. It's hard to beat the creative team of Lemire, Suayan, and Baron. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Jul 8, 2015

    The crew for this trio of creators are well assembled and should be a lethal force once the groove is found. But as for now, that groove is still just slightly elusive. It is there. It wants to be there. It has glimmers of it. But it hasn't quite found it. But even though not there, I have very little bad to say about this issue or the previous three. Bloodshot is back! He may not be the monster killing machine that you are used to (as of yet). But he is pressing further to that eventual destiny. I think that it will be a fun ride watching it get there.
