    Comics: The Gathering - Jason Laframboise Jan 12, 2018

    This was the final issue of book one as the last page of the book tell us. The story is advancing nicely, but there is a lot going on in these 5 issues. It almost feels like 15 issues worth of story stuff into them. It's not a bad thing I love a nice meaty read like this, but since we are jumping around between 3 different time periods it could be a little confusing. Overall we are getting a masterpiece of a story that is taking a long time to unpack. I loved this issue and the series as a whole is a great read that you must pick up. Read Full Review

    The Art in this book is stellar! It has an aged feel to the colors, which is perfect to establish a mood for a Flashback. We were happy to witness the beautifully rendered carnage from Ninjak, and Daddy got his great reward courtesy of Ray. The 5th installment and close to Book one of Bloodshot Salvation is still on track to be a great story, and one of my most anticipated reads each month. Read Full Review
