    I wish I could come up with something constructive to offer as criticism on this book, but there's nothing that's jumping out at me. It's an amazing, if somewhat standard for the genre, lead up to a final conflict, and I'm already anxious to see where Lemire and co. go with it. This has been an interesting kind of redemption tale, and there are a lot of places for it to end up after Ray/Bloodshot deals with the final nanite-infected person. I'm excited for all the possibilities. Keep on making this book, gang: I love it. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jesse Izdepski Nov 19, 2015

    Bloodshot: Reborn has not, and does not, look and feel like anything Bloodshot from the past. This is a good thing, and provides fans and readers the chance to have a fresh take on the world of Bloodshot. Nothing here is over-the-top. This story could be watched on the silver screen and it would make sense, though it is really in all truth only the beginning of what is to come. Valiant Entertainment has chosen to place Bloodshot front-and-center in the Valiant Universe at this stage, and it only makes sense that we the reader are shown the man behind Bloodshot and the motivations that will carry him forward into the distant future.

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Nov 17, 2015

    Bloodshot Reborn #8 is comic book perfection. Jeff Lemire wonderfully scripts the issue with fantastic character moments, an excellent action sequence, an emotional seesaw, and plot progression that rapidly leads us to what looks to be an exciting convergence with the return of Bloodsquirt. Guice's artwork perfectly complements Lemire's writing in emotional gravitas as well as the tone and rapid pace of the book towards the end. If you are not reading Bloodshot Reborn yet, this book demands that you do. Read Full Review

    Butch Guice's art has been terrific since taking over and really adds a different perspectiveinto these characters, all of whom I've grown to like — which makes the conclusion of this issue all the more shocking. Wait a minute – does that mean someone winds up dead? Maybe. I can tell you one thing, Bloodshot Reborn is literally firing on all cylinders and it's truly my favorite Valiant title. And Valiant Comics has had one helluva year with a truly wonderful catalogue of dark and gritty hero books that should make the big two re-think how they approach their combined universes without sacrificing stand-alone series content.

    IGN - Jeff Lake Nov 19, 2015

    Much like its nanite inhaling lead, Bloodshot: Reborn continues to get stronger with each passing issue. The book has been on quite a tear of late, much of which can be attributed to Jeff Lemire's improved pacing. Read Full Review

    Bloodshot Reborn #8is another solid comic book from Valiantthat continues the current story arc brilliantly. As it stands, this is a story that's worth picking up whether in single issues or the inevitable trade, but with the finale yet to come, the final verdict on this arcwill have to wait till next month.

    Comicsverse - Alex Nader Nov 23, 2015

    BLOODSHOT REBORN's second arc improves upon its first, though it has a few pacing and characterization issues that irked me a bit"but not enough to stop reading. Butch Guice's art is stunning as ever, conveying the openness of Colorado as well as his action scenes. Dave Baron's colors took a step up in this issue as well; everything really popped. While WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR may be my new favorite Valiant series, BLOODSHOT REBORN continues to tell a dark, gripping, and unique story about Bloodshot. I'm interested to see January's Mad Max-inspired arc, but next month's "The Hunt" finale should tie everything together before that. Read Full Review
