    If you missed the first issue then you'll be happy to know that you can pick this up and get into the story pretty easily – there is literally no excuse for you not to read this (unless you're not too fond of action comics with some incredibly intelligent story telling and plot building). Seriously, in a time when comics are being accused of retreading the same old ground, this series is a breath of fresh air. Read Full Review

    Bloodshot Salvation #2 is an excellent continuation to this latest ongoing, giving us some tense developments. Delivering an engaging narrative that continues to highlight Ray Garrison's struggle to maintain a peaceful life, the creative team leave us with a product that begs further exploration. In doing so not only to they tease the imminent future of Bloodshot, but they also invite an old villain to the party. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Justin Cooper Nov 8, 2017

    I describe this comic as watching an action movie, because the pace is vigorous and there is a lot of things like gunfights, and car chases to keep the action going. The story is fun and not convoluted with years of continuity to bog everything down. I am able to jump in as a new reader and enjoy the art and the characters with little exposition. Bloodshot Salvation does not disappoint with issue two! Read Full Review

    The dueling narratives of "Salvation" continue to diverge and make for a well done and varied reading experience. Read Full Review

    So yeah, there are a few positives and a few negatives in this outing, but its not a deal breaker. Sometimes the legwork is needed to move the story forward, and I think that is exactly what is happening here. We have months and years to cover in the gap between Bloodshot USA and Salvation, so its understandable. This issue gives us context, lets see what develops from here. Read Full Review
