“Hitting the target is more important than who pulls the trigger.”

All-new arc, all-new jumping-on point! HARBINGER WARS continues in a standalone, four-part arc of BLOODSHOT, featuring comics legend Barry Kitson (Fantastic Four)! Bloodshot has banded together with Project Rising Sprit’s most dangerous escapees. Can he shape them into a force for good – or are they too far gone?

    Adding Barry Kitson to this issue makes a huge difference, as well. Bloodshot has never looked bad, but it has never looked this good either. It's lacking in the background department, but that's about the only complaint that can be leveled at this beauty. Kitson draws the action and violence with a style and grace, it's truly a sight to see. The smaller scenes towards the end look good too, but it's hard to beat Bloodshot pulling out a machete that has just been cleaved into his body and then turning to face the guy who did it.

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Apr 17, 2013

    While this chapter does feel like filler, it's still sporting a thrilling action sequence, a gripping moment of vulnerability with Bloodshot, and engrossing dialogue to help give more life and a greater sense of empathy to the group of Harbingers. Sure, there's a bit of exposition thrown into the mix and it does feel a tad slow at times, but that doesn't stop this issue from leaving an impression. Kitson definitely impresses with the visuals, so I'm thrilled he'll continue with the title. BLOODSHOT continues to be the best big action book on the shelves... now it's just a matter of seeing how well they handle upcoming HARBINGER WARS moments we've already seen. Read Full Review

    New readers, read that introductory page. If you do that and understand it, then you're golden. With that background information, this issue is a great way to jump into Valiant comics as it crosses over with Harbinger, thus exposing a reader to titles at once. It's an action-packed read that is quite unlike anything on the stands. Read Full Review

    I had a lot of fun reading this issue due to the crossover and I was even more delighted that it continued to build the plot of the series as well. If you’ve never tried Bloodshot, but you’ve enjoyed Harbinger or Harbinger Wars then now is a great time to jump on the series. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Apr 23, 2013

    While the story itself is not exactly the most exciting or important aspect of the book, the issue as a whole is elevated thanks to the art, the characterization and the absurdly good action. Read Full Review
