    The stakes " both physical and emotional " are incredibly high here, and because Lemire's previous Valiant stories have been known to slaughter some sacred cows, it does not feel guaranteed that a good outcome is promised at the end of it all. If not, the arc itself might become so pervasively dark that it becomes borderline unreadable, but as a first chapter, this is first-rate comics. Read Full Review

    The game has been taken to new heights. To save baby Jessie, Ray must leave the human world and travel to parts unknown. What that means for everyone's favorite hard-hitting hero, well it certainly means issue #6 is well worth reading and that goes double for issue #7. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Justin Cooper Feb 17, 2018

    Another thrilling chapter in the life of Bloodshot and his family. Just when you think they catch a break, the bottom falls out again. The issue is more about exposition than action, but the last issue filled that quite nicely. I enjoyed the more serious tine, and certainly understood the gravitas of the plot and felt as the reader that the stakes were high. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Feb 14, 2018

    This is the story of a Dad willing to go through hell in order to save his child. That his family is in the center of a vast web of intrigue, he happens to be a science enhanced super soldier who has to cheat death, and he must survive the unknown agenda of a mysterious organization makes Bloodshot Salvation that much more interesting. There is an awful lot going on here, but jump in, the water's fine, even if it is deep. Read Full Review

    A comic that, through no fault of its own, struggles in comparison to an issue that 90% of you won't have read yet (but you will next month) is still a very good read nonetheless. Start reading this story now, and be prepared for one of the best issues of the year next month. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Feb 21, 2018

    Bloodshot Salvation #6 is another solid issue in the series. Its fairly slow-moving and clearly trying to set up for the hyped-up next issue (oh, well get there). However, the emotional weight of it all as well as the phenomenal art make this an enjoyable read. I can recommend this one. Feel free to check it out. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Elias Rosner Feb 15, 2018

    A decent, although repetitive, start to the second arc that has the misfortune of having art that has no emotions to it. This is an issue of necessary, just not very interesting, set-up. Read Full Review
