Bloodshot has traveled from the depths of the Deadside to the far-flung future of 4002 A.D. to save his daughter's life...and spare her the murderous inheritance of the nanites that flow through both their veins. Now, stranded at the crossroads of the 41st century with one last mission between them and freedom, the question will be finally be answered: was it all for naught? At long last, Eisner Award nominee Jeff Lemire's staggering Bloodshot saga reaches a monumental climax as superstar artist Doug Braithwaite (X-O MANOWAR) helps close "THE BOOK OF REVELATIONS" once and for all time!

    I couldn't find anything wrong with this book. It is just a perfect book. I stated earlier that this will go down as one of Lemire's best runs but this will go down as one of the best Bloodshot stories in history. Read Full Review

And it's all thanks to the fine team that's been working on the series. Make sure to pick up what is assuredly an amazing conclusion. Read Full Review

    This has been a saga full of action and drama, of gore and sadness, and of hope. It was a wild ride, and one well worth taking. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Aug 7, 2018

    This issue provides a satisfactory conclusion to an excellent story arc and also hints at the great stories to come. Bloodshot: Salvation has accomplished much. It has been a great introduction to the charter for those unfamiliar, it is a solid story for any fan, and a marvelous entry point for the larger stories of the Valiant Universe. All things considered, this has been a highly entertaining series that wraps the event up nicely with this issue while allowing the right questions to be answered in the future. Read Full Review

    Techaeris - Jason Falter Aug 9, 2018

    So was this series worth it? I enjoyed it for the most part. There were about 3 or 4 issues that could have been done better but it was a good read. I'm not sure I'll be buying the next series on a monthly basis since it is basically a prequel (getting people ready for the Vin Diesel Bloodshot movie that just started filming this week most likely). Bloodshot is a really interesting character and I can think of several interesting directions for him to take from here, we'll just have to wait and see what Valiant writers will have in store for him.

    On the other hand Magic is not alone, she counts with the remaining members of the Bloodshot Squad: Cold Man, Tank Man and Viet Man, who will break into the Omen facilities to rescue her daughter Jessie, but beware, Omen members ignore that millions of microscopic nanites run through Jessie's veins too and that makes her extremely dangerous as her father.

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Aug 10, 2018

    Ultimately,Bloodshot Salvation #12just doesn't have the page count to allow it to end as well as it could have, with the standard number of pages leading to a truncated ending, and the unanswered question of what could have been had Lemire and the others been allowed another five to ten pages.

    Sequential Planet - Ruston Fritcher Aug 11, 2018

    The Salvation series ends with a satisfying but underwhelming conclusion. There is an interesting story here, but the team lost focus. The ending confuses the book's message and does an average job trying to tell that message. The change in management halfway through the series might have derailed the strong momentum started at the beginning. Read Full Review
